WMRA hosts art exhibits at the Harrisonburg facility. WMRA plans to continue boosting the regional creative community in other ways. Artists are also mentioned on-air occasionally during our news/interview shows (like The Spark). Map to the site. Past exhibits.
Now showing: selections from Pat Jarrett's "Master and Apprentice" series of poster-sized color photos of workplace-trainees and their mentors. Pictures include blacksmiths, cobblers, tribal dancers, singers, instrument-makers, printers, cheese-makers, and others.
If one passes by 5000 scenes in a typical commute, maybe one might be "funny" somehow --and photographer Jeff James will notice. Humor and a sort of pop art irony and social critique appear. Now hanging and up until Thurs 30 May 2013, a collection of his art photos / visual jokes will hang at PublicRadioArtSpace in WMRA's Harrisonburg facility. Art peekers welcome weekdays 9-5.
DinoHenge Whacktasticness --closes Thurs 1 Nov 2012. Oddest. Exhibit. Ever. (Wonderfully so!) FoamHenge/DinosaurLand sculptor Mark Cline, DC pubs decorator Lee Wheeler, and zen-chainsaw sculptor Glenn Richardson amuse the weirder parts of your mind. Art peekers welcome 9-5 weekdays.
Event was 9-13-2012. Allen Ginsberg posse-member Gordon Ball will describe the how-and-why of his own historic photos of the epic Beat poet's most private world. Ball documented Ginsberg's personal life as no outsider could. WMRA's art exhibit of Ball's images has been extended and ends with this informal gallery talk at the Harrisonburg studio. Snacks, music from The Bloom Trio. The Beat, Ball, & Bloom Happening.
