Home Grown: Meander and Explode: Jane Alison and Rich Tarbell

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, A sick David leaves Leslie and Clinton to do the show like they did it in the beginning. Fortunately, they have two great guests to make things fun. First, Jane Alison returns to the show. She’s taken a detour from creative writing to write a new book about writing. Meander, Spiral, Explode: Design and Pattern in Narrative takes on the strangle hold that “The Narrative Art” has on the way we write. We talk to Jane about her bold move against the canonical practice, about how patterns in nature can be reflected in storytelling, and about how a gain and loss of tumesence need not be the only game in town. Next, Rich Tarbell visits the show for the first time. He and Coy Barefoot have turned Rich’s photographic and oral history of music in Charlottesville, Regarding Charlottesville Music into an exhibit, presented with the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society at City SpaceIt’s a Music Town: Exploring the Sights, the Sounds, and the Stories of Charlottesville in the Modern Rock Era. We talk to Rich about what he learned in doing the book and the exhibit, of how scenes grow and why they shift and why they die. We deep dive with some deep artists here 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.
