At Longwood Center for the Visual Arts
Organized by Greenwood Library & LCVA
Join the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts and the Greenwood Library on April 29th at 6:00 pm at the LCVA for a discussion with Virginia folk artist Eldridge Bagley. Born in Richmond, Bagley was raised on a farm outside Kenbridge, Virginia and graduated from Kenbridge High School. He has 32 stunning pieces in our collection, some of which were graciously donated by Bagley himself. This includes original paintings and limited-edition prints. Bagley's nostalgic and picturesque paintings capture his own experiences of growing up as a tobacco farmer in rural Southside Virginia. This talk will explore the evolution of his artistic practice in his own words.
Refreshments will be served and this event is free and open to the public. There is no registration required. All LCVA exhibitions and programs are made possible through the generous support of the Wells-Fargo Foundation, the Walter J. Payne Foundation, Anne Carter & Walter R. Robbins, Jr. Foundation, the E.B.
