The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine Office of Community Engagement is now inviting submissions for our 2024 Summer Art Exhibit.
“Sons of the Village” The Art of Fatherhood

Throughout history, artists have honored their fathers, their own paternity, and famous fathers in their art. The theme of this exhibition is centered on the idea that fatherhood is both a personal responsibility and a communal one.
We are inviting submissions from all artists, regardless of age or background. Artists are encouraged to explore the theme in their own way and to submit pieces that represent their unique perspectives on fatherhood (being one, becoming one, having one, not having one) and/or the role of the collective community in raising all its children.
Our guest curator and feature artist will be retired Roanoke educator and youth mentor, Fletcher Nichols.

Read a recent article on Mr. Nichols: https://roanoke.com/news/local/crime-courts/roanoke-affirmation-stories-youth-gang-urban-gun-violence-prevetion-videos-fletcher-nichols-chris-roberts-douglas-pitzer-antonio-stovall-brandy-campbell-heather-harper-gunn-connie-steele-harrison-museum-launch/article_8f9e4d36-df1f-11ee-b554-97873448cd5c.html

Show dates are June 11 through August 30, 2024

Artists are invited to submit up to three pieces of work reflecting the theme. Art can be two or three-dimensional, and all media will be accepted. *Works must be delivered to the school no later than Monday, May 20.*

To submit photos of your work or ask questions about the show, contact Courtney Powell – cbrakes@vt.edu or 540-526-2588.

This art exhibit is sponsored by the Creativity in Health Education Program at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.

Fridays Featured Artist: Ruth McMullan

Ruth was interested in architectural design early on and while serving in the Air Force, she began to work on a nursing degree. During this time, she kept her creative side going, working with beads, drawing and pen & ink. One of her first pen & inks was in response to a National Geographic Magazine photo. She began experimenting with animals who were heavily camouflaged, like the cheetah and perfected her black and white pen & inks. Ruth also loved bead work and began with flower wreaths that resulted in her interest in the shadow patterns of beads above the paper from the strong studio light. She also makes beaded Christmas ornaments in beautiful snowflakes and poinsettia patterns

Wish list Wednesday: Carol Jones

Carol was quite enthused when I asked her to go shopping, and was quite disappointed when I told her it was only for pretend. However, she very much enjoyed walking around and searching for her favorite things in our shop. Thank you for participating Carol!
