Explore One-of-a-Kind Screenprints and Handpicked Comics at Telegraph

January 20, 2015 1:16 pm

Telegraph is worlds away from the highbrow spaces often associated with the term "art gallery." This Charlottesville spot is all about comic book artwork, and to that end, its gallery space plays host to the high quality screenprints that local artists create.

Up-and-coming names in any type of modern or popular sphere of art are showcased at Telegraph in its rotating exhibits. Though they change frequently, you might catch a show like "Epic Encounters." This past show displayed comic book heroes and villains as printed by emerging artists such as Jenn Woodall, Jim Rugg, and Jake Lawrence.

Every print you see is up for grabs, as are the prints in Telegraph's retail section. Though many of them are reminiscent of the rare and popular comics that Telegraph's staff also curates and sells, the prints show off colorful renditions of more than just super heroes. For instance, one screenprint shows off a spaceship outlined like a blueprint, except for one catch: it's shaped like a dog.

Head to Telegraph to explore up-and-coming modern artists and find your favorite comic—or a new favorite—Tuesdays through Sundays (they're closed on Mondays).

The Fralin Museum of Art: American and European Art Plus Rotating Exhibits

January 13, 2015 1:50 pm

The permanent collection at The Fralin Museum, a branch of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, houses roughly 13,000 pieces of art. The works run the gamut from American and European paintings and photos to African pieces and American Indian creations. The collection is constantly growing and evolving, however, and you can stay abreast of new additions via The Fralin's website.

Many locals come to this museum for the rotating exhibits, however, since they encompass a variety of genres. Past exhibits have included Realms of Earth and Sky, a showcase of Indian paintings from the 15th century through the 19th century, and Vinland, a collection of works by Cindy Bernard regarding her family's history in Newfoundland. There was even an exhibit titled Frenemies​ that explored the unique dynamics between animals and man as seen through an artistic lens. Check out The Fralin Museum of Art's website for upcoming exhibits.
