Innsbrook After Hours announced this week the return of K95 Countryfest on Friday, July 6th. This year’s lineup of artists includes Lee Brice with LANCO and and Saturday, July 7th featuring Billy Currington with LOCASH and Russell Dickerson. Tickets for both nights go on sale this Friday, February 16th at 10:00 AM.

Lee Brice’s self-titled new album serves as a homecoming and a homing device on the essence of what’s defined the man who’s produced hits including “I Drive Your Truck” and “I Don’t Dance”, and has been nominated three times for the CMA/ACM/Grammy Song of the Year. For a man known for raucous live shows and contemplative songs, there’s a newfound simplicity to tracks on Lee Bricelike the real life “Songs In The Kitchen,” the soul searching “What Keeps Me Up At Night” and the self-recognizing “I Don’t Smoke.” Performing with Brice will be LANCO, which premiered its debut album, Hallelujah Nights, just last month. The album, which includes hits “Born to Love You” and “Greatest Love Story”, has already climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums.

Billy Currington, singer of the  hit “People Are Crazy,” makes music that possesses a relatability that makes his audience feel like they could drink a beer or catch some fish with the curly-haired country boy. The “Pretty Good at Drinkin’ Beer” and “Let Me Down Easy” singer delivers upbeat summer anthems and explores the complexities of life and love, as exhibited on his latest album, Summer Forever. LOCASH, the duo best known for its GOLD-certified hit “I Love This Life,” will perform with Currington. The pair recently debuted its new single “Don’t Get Better Than That” on the TODAY Show. LOCASH has charted nine singles, including “I Know Somebody.” Joining Currington and LOCASH is Russell Dickerson, known for the new hit single, “Yours,” that reached #1 on the Country Airplay chart in January. Dickerson released his EP, Yours, in November 2017 debuting at #2 in the iTunes country store and #1 on Billboard’sHeatseeker chart.

Tickets for all shows are available online here.

New VMFA exhibition portrays the majestic beauty of Virginia’s Natural Bridge

The exhibition, free to visitors, will be on view at VMFA from February 6 to August 1, 2021.

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) has announced its upcoming exhibition, Virginia Arcadia: The Natural Bridge in American Art, an exploration of the artistic portrayal of this spectacular and seemingly miraculous natural landmark. The exhibition, free to visitors, will be on view at VMFA from February 6 to August 1, 2021.

The majesty of the Shenandoah Valley’s Natural Bridge, a 400-year-old geological formation, has inspired artists, writers and explorers over the centuries. It has served as an ethereal example of the American landscape, an icon of natural history and a witness to human civilization. One of the most depicted sites in American 19th-century landscape painting, this formation captured the imaginations of artists like Frederic Church, David Johnson, Edward Hicks and Caleb Boyle, as well as many decorative artists.

“VMFA is pleased to recognize Virginia’s very own natural landmark through this exhibition,” said VMFA Director and CEO Alex Nyerges. “We hope Virginia Arcadia inspires appreciation for and interest in rediscovering the wonderful natural world here in our state, and also recognizing that the environment is a precious source of inspiration.”

“Consider a time when our very landscape sparked wonder and inspired myth,” said the exhibition’s curator, Dr. Christopher C. Oliver, VMFA’s Assistant Curator of American Art. “Artists were moved to not only capture its picturesque splendor and breathtaking sense of place, but also all that the Natural Bridge represented and idealized — the sublime divinity of the natural world, the excitement of discovery, the harmony between nature and civilization and the abundance of pastoral beauty.” The Natural Bridge is also historically relevant to western expansion, slavery, natural history, tourism and ecological conservation.

Virginia Arcadia examines the Natural Bridge through more than 60 paintings, prints, decorative art objects and photographs made between the late 1700s and the early 1900s. Highlights of the exhibition include works from VMFA’s collection including one of the earliest illustrations of the Natural Bridge, an engraving from 1787 by Baron De Turpin, a French engineer sent to document the site, one of three such engravings featured in Volume 1: Travels In North-America in the Years 1780, 1781 and 1782. Joshua Shaw’s oil painting Natural Bridge No. 1 (ca. 1820) captures the view from atop the arch of the bridge looking down into a nearby creek in Rockbridge County, Virginia. Several works in the exhibition are on loan from institutions across the country including the Chrysler Museum, the Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia, the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Virginia Museum of History and Culture, and the Yale University Art Gallery, as well as from private collections.

More information about Virginia Arcadia: The Natural Bridge in American Art can be found on the museum’s website.
