Argentina, unplugged.

2019 will be my 7th year in the business of art, and I’m starting it off by taking a month to travel in Argentina. My friend and studio assistant Molly Sharp will be traveling with me, and we will go from Buenos Aires to Mendoza to Tupungato to Bariloche to Patagonia, with many points in between.

I will post photos on social media as wifi is available, but my priority for this trip is to experience and immerse in a different culture, unplug from my various electronic devices, draw and design and think about where I want to focus my art in the coming months and years.

Collaborating with Copper through Nature

By Courtney H. Diener-Stokes

Cathy Vaughn was working as a graphic designer and had no prior experience in working with metals when she got her hands on copper about twenty years ago.

“When I started out working in graphic design it was a very hands-on medium,” Vaughn says. “It was before computers were a part of the process.” 

As computers began taking center stage in her profession, she turned to copper when she found that her soul was no longer being fed by her profession.

I was thrilled to have an interview with Copper in the Arts back in November, and hope you enjoy reading the whole article.

Stockley Gardens Spring Arts Festival

StockleyGardens.jpg

Building community takes art. Music. Food. Laughter. A willingness to work together. Most of all, it takes vision.

Since 1984, Hope House Foundation has been the vision behind the Stockley Gardens Arts Festival. Now, the free event is a community tradition proudly presented by Towne Bank, and drawing more than 50,000 visitors annually.

Twice a year, on the third full weekend in May and October, people flock to Stockley Gardens in Norfolk’s historic Ghent neighborhood to browse through jewelry, pottery, paintings, and other works of art by over 130 artists. The park is full of strollers, dogs and tantalizing smells. Music drifts from the stage. Friends stop to chat. Throughout the weekend, there is a feeling of hope.

The money raised during these events helps pay for housing, transportation, medical care, and more for people with developmental disabilities. But the events themselves benefit the entire community.

We're proud to give the community one of the best outdoor arts festivals in the area. In fact, the Stockley Gardens Arts Festival has been voted one of the top two art festivals in eastern Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine readers four years in a row, so don't miss the upcoming Stockley Gardens Arts Festival. It's a good time, for a good cause.
