A Second Helping, The Church Basement Ladies Sequel, September 17 – October 24, 2015 The ladies of the church basement return with an all-new version (a second helping) of their escapades. The original Church Basement Ladies was a huge hit here at the Mill in 2012, and we promise that you won’t be disappointed with the latest goings-on among the casseroles and covered dishes. Loaded with heartwarming humor and hilarious antics. Join Mrs. Snustad and the other ladies as they cook up a storm below the house of God.
The show pairs Jocelyn Armstrong’s elegant, fluid figures with the thick brushwork of Lisa Neher. The artwork compliments one another with the use of light and soft colors of white, green, and blue. The body of work also offers a contrast between Jocelyn’s smooth surfaces and Lisa’s rough textures. The show will run from October 1, 2015 until November 28, 2015. The exhibition includes an Opening Reception on Thursday, October 1, and an Ashland First Thursdays Reception on Thursday November 5. An artist talk will be held during the first opening, on October 1.
Please join us at as we honor our hosts, Ms. Rosann Bocciarelli and Mr. Jim Weinberg, for their many contributions to the Science Museum of Virginia and the Richmond community!
