Join us at The Garage on Friday, June 27 from 8-10 pm for an evening of music with Look Homeward

Look Homeward is a band that hails from the piedmont of North Carolina. Lee Anderson (guitar, vocals), Alex Bingham (upright bass), Evan Ringel (trombone, fiddle) and Wilson Greene IV (banjo) pair the Appalachian drawls and passionate picking of venerated field recordings with the soul tones of Atlantic beaches and boggy bayous. Marrying banjos with brass, the quartet celebrates the American South in a mingling of old and new, traditional yet surprising. Add honest folk songwriting and the result is music that just might sound like home, wherever you’re from.

Look Homeward’s first EP ‘The Hunger and the Ghost’ was released in Fall 2013 and met with unexpected success. Their first full length, studio album was released in May 2015 and is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.

 

The Garage is located on N 1st St., across from Lee Park. For more information, email Sam.

Join us at The Garage on Wednesday, June 24 at 8pm for an evening of music with Jonah Parzen-Johnson!

A Chicago native, Jonah’s circular breathing, multi-phonics and impossibly nimble vocalization owes a debt to the Chicago saxophone legacy, but his devotion to a quirky almost vocal style places him in new territory for the solo saxophone. He has meticulously constructed a world of warm memories remembered in a cold present, as he melds the evocative nature of folk music with the chilling power of experimentalism.

All About Jazz says Parzen-Johnson’s music is “a folk music for a new tribe of people, one that has access to new technologies and uses them as opposed to being used by them.”

Join us at The Garage on Friday, April 17th from 5 – 7 PM for an Open Gallery featuring Rich Tarbell‘s “Moonlight Silhouettes”!

“Moonlight Silhouettes” is a series of twelve photographs presenting a creative collaboration that Tarbell did with Stephanie Helvin and Mallory Paige of Moonlight Circus. Four of the photographs incorporate a lenticular printing method while eight are printed on aluminum with a high gloss finish. The lenticular printing method was selected to convey the movement and grace of the aerialists while the metal prints simply capture a single paused moment in their act.

On Friday, August 1st from 5-8 PM, join us at The Garage for “Minor Mutations”– watercolor, pen and ink drawings by Kaki Dimock.

“Minor Mutations” explores the relationship between animals and the natural world, blurring the boundaries between flora and fauna and examining connections. There are trees growing on the backs of alligators, oceans inside iguanas, and conjoined white-tailed deer. And owls standing in a row. They don’t know what’s happening either.

New City Arts presents Memory Maps of Charlottesville– a community mapping event– at The Garage on Friday, May 9 from 5 – 7 PM.

Community mapping is an exercise that uses cartography as a platform for generating a dialogue about the spaces we inhabit, in this case, the city of Charlottesville. This event will focus on creating personal memory maps. Starting from scratch, participants will be encouraged to draw, list, discuss and map the spaces we all inhabit, traverse, and remember.

This is part of a larger project that Laura Snyder and Mara SprafkinNew City Artists in Residence at The Haven— are working on to create many different perspectives on one shared space, the city of Charlottesville. 

All of the maps will be on view later this summer in an exhibition opening at the WVTF space as part of First Fridays on June 6, 2014.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. The Garage is located on N. 1st St., across from Lee Park.

Towards the end of the night, the floor opens up for Q&A, allowing a candid conversation between artist and audience.
