Patricia Kluge is no longer working at the vineyard estate she used to own, but the new owners of Trump Winery said she wasn’t fired—the year-long contract that made her vice president of operations has simply expired.
Brendan Fitzgerald’s article “Does anyone trust science anymore?” January 24, melds half-truths, undefined terminology, and under-critical reporting. The initial quote of Michael Mann, “hopefully every scientist…is a skeptic,” was hopeful. The next sentence has Mann revealing his own muddled bias as he elevates consensus to scientific fact, and then re-labels skepticism as denial.

In other words, it’s a true Downtown gem. Runner-up Andrew Minton’s been in business since 1978 and sells [...]
C-VILLE is looking for submissions for our annual photo contest. We are seeking high quality prints featuring local people, places or things (no smaller than 4"x6").
What are you working on right now? My idea of fun is the more work the better. I was just invited to be in a show at Piedmont next February that’s going to be called “Sew What.” Recently I’ve moved my focus from paper collage to fabric. The inspiration for the fabric work comes from [...]

Not just Paul Simon’s Graceland-era backing group
What were you doing when we called? I was working on an essay for an artist book that Lydia Moyer, a local experimental video artist, is doing. It’s a collection of photographs of old houses. Mostly she does experimental video, and this is a side project. Hypocrite Press founder Matthew Ferrell says that he is [...]
I wish I had an original print from Ansel Adams. Back in the days of film, I started shooting a 35mm camera when I was 13
What are you working on right now? A few things. I have a one-woman show called The Secret Lives of Little Girls that opens at the Lee Street Theatre in Salisbury, North Carolina, in March. I’m doing rewrites on that to get ready. Then I’m working on a screenplay with a screenwriting group that has [...]
Some folks say good things come in small packages. We’d like to amend that: When it comes to holiday shopping, we say good things come with small price tags. That’s why we’ve combed the city for the best gifts under $25, be they for mom, bro, BF or canine. Happy shopping! [...]
What were you doing when we called? Eating lunch at Five Guys. They have a vegetarian option that I sometimes crave. Hardly starving: In his art Patrick Costello reflects nature’s bounty, including everything from free standing structures to canned foods (pictured). What are you working on right now? I’ve just started drawing a positive [...]
The band, now seven strong with Tim Reynolds on guitar and a horn section, walked slowly onstage bathed in blue light to screams that washed over them for seven minutes before they played a note.
What are you working on right now? I’m trying to get some songs together for our next album. I’ve got something written and ready to go, and there are a couple of things that need a little fine tuning. There’s one tune in particular that I’ve been working on for over a year now. Actually, [...]
What are you working on right now? I’m mainly working on my garden a lot, planting fall crops. I’m still doing a few house calls to do portraits. Portraits are the main thing I do, artistically, portraits from life, but I’m sort of taking a break. I was painting on the Downtown Mall, but now [...]
Like that porkchop you bought last Saturday at the City Market, the career of a farmer has an expiration date. For Richard Bean, that date has come. The Double H butcher has announced that, as of two months ago, he and partner Jean Rinaldi have decided to start the next phase of their lives—one that [...]
This year’s Virginia Film Festival is going to be different. Less classic cinema. More new and independent flicks that reflect contemporary concerns. A snazzy new festival logo. Plus, they’ve established an additional box office at the Main Street Arena, so viewers don’t have to trek to Culbreth for a movie that’s showing Downtown. But what [...]

What are you working on right now? Artist Rob Tarbell harnesses the power of smoke with tools of his own design to create images that boast a surprisingly rich pallette. Tarbell’s work is currently showing at Mary Baldwin College and Hunterdon Art Museum in New Jersey. I figured out how to capture smoke on paper. [...]
What were you doing right before we called? I was in the process of coming up with a gear list for this recording and live music video that a producer friend of mine, Raphael Wintersberger, and I are trying to do. It’s actually in New York City, so it’s going to be a big trip. [...]
Tell us about your day job. My day job is my studio called The POMP, located in Random Row Books. I call it a studio and print shop. I will have screen printing equipment and hopefully other stuff soon, but right now there’s a screen print station, a computer, lots of drawing and painting materials, [...]
