Ivy Creek Natural Area and Historic River View Farm will provide the setting for this outdoor program. Arwen Donahue‘s Landings: A Crooked Creek Farm Year tells the story of a farm family’s work to survive and thrive while grappling with the legacy of our cultural divide between art and land. In The Middle of Somewhere: An Artist Explores the Nature of Virginia, Suzanne Stryk offers a contemporary interpretation of Virginia’s ecology from a visual artist’s point of view, gathered everywhere in Virginia from kayak trips through pristine swamps, to wanderings through the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts galleries, to strolling the dusty streets of old coal towns.
Join us after the panel for book sales and a demonstration by each artist on their creative process.
Please note: This is an outdoor event with seating on the grass. Dress for the weather and bring a blanket or chair!
In partnership with the Ivy Creek Foundation and Historic River View Farm.
