Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie are back on the mic with two new artists. First Susan Patrick comes on the show for the first time. She’s primarliy a painter, but she comes to us to talk about her 20 year side project — graphite and ink drawings of discarded objects that she’s found and arranged. Her show, Debris is up at New Dominion Bookshop now, running through the month. David and Leslie ask Susan about her process in this work, her artistic philosophy, and the importance of appreciating the little things that get discarded and ignored. Next, author Katie Baldwin returns to the show. Her second romance has supernatural adventure and is called Ghost of a Chance. We talk to Katie about what writing book number two was like and what research she both did and did not need to do to depict serial killers, 90s Satanism, and a heavy metal band. Once artists let themselves out of their studios, we get them in our studio to talk to you 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.
