Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

It’s another Sunday morning talk about upcoming art on Home Grown except this time, David and Clinton attempt to do it without Leslie’s class and charm. First, we welcome to the show for the first time Beryl Solla, Professor of Art from Piedmont Virginia Community College and curator of their art galleries. Both their North and South galleries have shows opening up, but David and Clinton get so sidetracked immediately talking art with Beryl that we almost don’t get to them. Fortunately our next guest is an old friend of the show, Edward Warwick White from Four County Players, and he knows how to keep us on track … somewhat. (There was the moment where Clinton and David pitched their musical version of Othello.) Four County’s about to launch their anniversary show The Best of Barboursville: A 45th Anniversary Musical Revue. It’s two great guests that guest great together as David and Clinton struggle to get the Facebook Live Feed to work in the background. That means it’s just another Sunday morning on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

On today’s Home Grown David and Leslie make a new friend and welcome back a member of the Home Grown family. First, the director of Woody Guthrie’s American Song Bryan Garey (UVA Heritage Summer Theatre Festival) talks about this upcoming show that’s not quite a musical, not quite a play, not quite a concert, but is all about the wonderful and legendary folk pioneer Woody Guthrie and his music. Next, Andy Davis from Bent Theatre Improv triumphantly returns to the show. This time Bent is presenting an 18 hour improv marathon, which may be the closest thing to a Charlottesville comedy festival that the city has seen in awhile. (Then David, Leslie, and Andy fall into an unabashed lovefest.) It’s about one man who listened to the working and the workless and a theatre style all about listening on this week’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

On today’s Home Grown it gets more than a little political as David Vaughn Straughn and Leslie M. Scott-Jones debrief after a night of neo-Nazis and Proud Boys, which leads them right into their conversation with Angel Metro, one of the organizers of C’Ville’s Goth Night, who, in her other life, has had to deal with the growing social hostilities. Meanwhile Clinton takes a second look at New City Arts’ Housing2Home program with Program Coordinator Ellie Roller. Their new exhibit shows what people have done in the program and you can check it out while walking your dog! It’s an up, down, and slightly chaotic Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
