Selu Scenery Workshop Date: Saturday 28 October 2023 (Rain Date: Sunday 29 October).

Instructor: Robin Poteet

Workshop title: Beauty in the Details

In late October, the change of seasons will be in the air at Selu. Crisp days. Animals scurrying to prepare for winter. A burst of color in the trees. Perhaps some morning frost. This is a beautiful time of year to calm our mind and reflect on nature’s beauty.”

Robin Poteet is a native Virginian, a long-time watercolorist, a passionate drawer, sketcher and a teacher of workshops locally, nationally and abroad. Join her for a day of exploring techniques and finding noble subjects in the simplest of things around us. Using a sketchbook and small pieces of watercolor paper, Robin will guide participants through the design process, mark making, color choices and the joy of applying brush to paper.

Space is limited, please register in advance.

Contact Radford University Art Museum for further information: RUartmuseum@radford.edu

Start Time: 10:00 a.m.

Artwork created at this workshop may be eligible for display at the RU President’s 2023 “Friends of Selu Day” and the 2025 Selu Scenery Exhibition at Radford University Art Museum.

Charlie Brouwer: All Over the Place

Charlie Brouwer image

Sometimes art exhibitions tour from one museum to another. This 2023 exhibition will actually be a tour of sculptures installed all over the New River Valley region. Charlie’s artworks will appear in libraries, and churches, on university campuses, community & art centers, in front of historic homes, a coffee shop, galleries, farms and in a front yard. A QR code sign at each site will lead to a website with an interactive map created by the Radford University Art Museum.

About the Artist:

Radford University Professor Emeritus Charlie Brouwer describes himself as an artist in search of beauty, truth, and goodness. His search has been visual, and internal, public and private, local, national and international. His work ranges from large and small-scale sculptures made mostly from wood to monumental installations, and to works on paper or canvas with water-based mediums. He also works collaboratively with other individuals or whole communities making art in ways he could never do alone. His work is philosophical and spiritual, personal and universal, serious and humorous. It is “all over the place.”
