Triad Arts Live With Cashavelly Morrison And Remembering Artist Maud Gatewood
Triad Arts Live: Cashavelly Morrison
On today’s show we leave the studio and head to downtown Winston-Salem for Triad Arts Live, presented by WFDD and The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. Our guest is Cashavelly Morrison. She’s an Americana and folk singer whose songs tackle big issues like gender politics and social justice. Her words, melodies, and excellent band filled the Mountcastle Forum at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, and we have the whole concert and interview for you on today’s show. Cashavelly's first album, The Kingdom Belongs to a Child, was just released.
The late North Carolina artist and educator Maud Gatewood graduated from Woman's College (now UNCG) in 1954.
Since then, she and her work have gone on to influence an entire generation of young artists. Remembering Maud: A Selection of Her Paintings continues at the Gatewood Gallery in Greensboro through November 8th in the Gatewood Studio Arts Building. Collateral events include “Building on Maud’s Legacy: Place and Being and Artist: A Conversation with visual artis/bloggers Sharon Butler and Brett Baker Thursday night, October 15th at 6pm. It takes place in Weatherspoon Auditorium. There’ll be a screening of the documentary Gatewood: Facing the White Canvass on the 29th and more.
Gatewood once said “I think it's in the nature of the species to be a little evasive and covered. Ambiguity might be the heart of life as well as art.”
David Ford spoke with UNCG Art Department Chair Lawrence Jenkens.
