Episode 152: Today I talk with my friend, blogger Shane Martin of Shane and Simple. Shane was a music director at a church I went to. We share a lot of the same opinions about art and the church, which I think could carry over into any business or organization.
Episode 151: Today I talk to Nat Silver of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston Massachusetts. We talk about the Boston’s Apollo exhibition which features an unsung model of John Singer Sargent.
The exhibition is based on a series of Sargent’s sketches that the museum had in it’s archives. Nat and the team had to do some digging to find out who this model was. They unearthed some great discoveries.
Episode 151: Today I talk to Charlotte movie producer, Tony Elwood. We kind of go back in time 3 years ago to an exhibition on Camp Green, that he designed for the Levine Museum of the New South. This is a well-kept secret that even long-time Charlotteans don’t know about.
Even though it’s not a current exhibition, I thought it was especially relevant now, as their dealings with the Spanish Flu was not unlike our “new” normal with Covoid 19.
Episode 129: Today I talk to Charlotte artist, Deneer Davis. She’s a basketball player turned artist. She’s a muralist and she actually paints SHOES! She turned to art after an injury. You can find her at @neerperfection on Instagram.
