Gala Sponsor Highlight: Green Front Furniture and Dickie and Den Cralle

The LCVA is so grateful for our gala sponsors, Green Front Furniture and Dickie and Den Cralle! 

"The more art available in Farmville the better. LCVA's mission of making the visual arts accessible to citizens of Southside Virginia is one that Green Front is excited to support. The LCVA along with downtown business like Mainly Clay and Red Door 104 provide ample opportunities to create and enjoy beauty. Thank you, LCVA." —Den Cralle www.greenfront.com

The LCVA is so grateful for our gala sponsors, Candice Jamison Dowdy ’69 and Charles H. Dowdy III, Northwestern Mutual! 

"We love the LCVA because it is a remarkable center that touches so many people. The in-school programs are amazing and support school systems who struggle with keeping the arts in their education program. The LCVA welcomes all ages, multiple communities, and those who are talented, and/or simply curious about art. We are lucky to have this resource in the community."

Lonnie Calhoun teaches Tai Chi After Dark

by Jamie Ruff

 

During a recent Tai Chi [workshop] at the Longwood Visual Arts Center, Lonnie Calhoun looked like he was training the forces that would be called on to repel the slow-motion attack of the giant sloths.

His steps were gentle, precise, and so slow, with hand movements that were the same – and the 16 participants in the workshop surrounding him did the same.
