Kerry Leon Sturdivant Featured In The Apple Gallery

Feb 1-29

Kerry Leon Sturdivant Featured In The Apple Gallery The Stokes County Arts Council welcomes Kerry Leon Sturdivant to The Apple Gallery, 500 Main Street, Danbury. His exhibit, featuring works in oil, will be on display throughout the month of February. In 1989, while painting and drawing, Sturdivant felt an urgent need to express what he saw as issues important in life. Self-taught with much desire, progress was made but he discovered that the techniques of Commercial Art would increase his artistic ability. He then enrolled in Phillips Jr. College and was introduced to the techniques and insight of Mr. Lemuel Johnson. “Mr. Johnson relayed these techniques to me, which was a fascinating adventure and learning process for me. I have never shown my work in galleries, but have sold privately. In the span of 31 years my paintings are currently displayed in churches, camps, and private homes,” said Sturdivant. After graduating from Phillips Jr. College, Sturdivant became an Entrepreneur and started his own sign and graphics business under the name of Leon’s Custom Signs & Designs, located in Winston Salem. A sample of clients include Bethania Mill and Village Shoppes, City of Winston-Salem, WSSU, Delta Arts Center, Nationwide Insurance, Smitty’s Apples, Stokesdale Church of God Family Outreach, and Woodchucks Custom Designs and Crafts. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, February 7th from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. Meet the artist and enjoy light hors ‘devours and music by the Baileytown Christian Church Senior Choir and the Gospel Intruders. The reception is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.StokesArts.org or call 336-593-8159.

Class of 2020 Leadership Patrick County 

Sep 1 - May 31

NOMINATE SOMEONE OR APPLY YOURSELF - DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 3 The Reynolds Homestead is accepting applications for the 2020 class of Leadership Patrick County. This innovative pro­gram is designed to develop the leadership potential of citizens in the county. Participants will learn about county govern­ment, education, nonprofits, businesses and tourist attractions in Patrick County and broaden their perspectives on civic leadership and community issues through direct interaction with community leaders and agencies in our area. During September 2019 through May 2020, participants will attend monthly day-long meetings focused on different aspects of the community, including trips to different communities within the county. This year, the AIR Shift curriculum will be incorporated into the program to facilitate the development of community projects the participants will create and implement in the coming year. One evening each month, participants will attend a meeting such as a County Board of Supervisors meeting. The program emphasizes professional development with training in team building, collaboration, consensus building, de­sign thinking, project management, communication, leadership styles. The first meeting is an orientation retreat focused on team building, and identifying leadership styles. In January the participants will enjoy an overnight visit to Richmond to meet with our local delegate and senator and savor a meal with Reynolds family members sponsored by the Richard S. Reynolds foundation. The final meeting will be a commencement ceremony, presentation of community projects, and a celebration. The program seeks a group of 12 men and women from diverse ethnic and profes­sional backgrounds, each possessing strong potential as a future community leader. Applicants must be 21 years old or older to participate. If employed, participants are required to have the permission of their employer to participate. Nominations are being sought, and individuals may choose to nominate them­selves. Tuition is $150.00. Chamber of Commerce members receive a $25 discount. Tuition covers all meals, transportation to meetings and accommodations for the overnight stay in Richmond. Because it is important that everyone has an opportu­nity to apply, a limited number of scholarships are available to those who be unable to attend otherwise. Applications should be delivered to the Reynolds Homestead by Tuesday, Septem­ber 3, 2019. Applications can be submitted via email to jws@vt.edu. The program is limited to 12 participants, so early applications are encouraged. For more information, contact one of the program coordinators: Julie Walters Steele - phone: 276.694.7181 ext. 23 or email: jws@vt.edu Lisa Martin - phone: 276.694.7181 ext. 22 or email: martinlm@vt.edu Sarah Wray - phone 276.694.7181 ext. 27 or email: wrayse88@vt.edu

Auditions Being Held at The Arts Place of Stokes 

Jan 31 - Feb 1

Auditions for a new Musical Theater Show "Broadway Comes to Danbury Volume 2" will be held at The Arts Place on Friday, January 31st from 5-8pm and Saturday, February 1st from 2-5pm. This community theatre opportunity is written and directed by Hannah Riddle, who directed “Dreams, Schemes and Time Machines” in the fall. Show dates are scheduled for May 8th and 9th. After auditions and call backs, rehearsals will be held on Monday evenings at The Arts Place of Stokes located at 502 Main Street, Danbury. This will be a show featuring dialogue and musical parts. Children ages 10 to 18 years and adults 19 years and up are encouraged to audition. Synopsis: A young, selfish boy named Nate wakes up to find that he is stranded on a deserted island. He has only one item with him in addition to the clothes on his back.... his father’s guitar. He quickly discovers the guitar is enchanted. When playing the guitar (depending on which song he chooses) a significant person or people from his life is summoned to the island for a period of one hour. Each person or group of people he summons spends the hour with him differently but each help him discover a new clue about the value of selflessness and love that lead to his eventual escape from the island. Those wishing to audition should bring a musical theater selection to sing (we will have an accompanist available) and they should also be prepared to read a few lines of dialogue from a script which will be provided. For Questions or to RSVP please email Hannah Riddle at hannahvoicestudio@gmail.com .
