Carver 4-County Museum

Carver 4-County Museum will present its entire “When Women Use Their Power” exhibit for the first time. Edna Lewis of Orange and 10 other women will be featured.

“Homeostasis,” an exhibition of photographs by Caroline Oldfield, can be seen through Aug. 1 at The Gallery at Studio IX. A Happy Hour and Artist Talk is planned for 5 p.m. Thursday.

Oldfield seeks to capture images of the natural world that will stir an inherent sense of closeness, even for viewers who’ve had limited access to the subject. The exhibition is presented in partnership with the Prolyfyck Run Crew. Learn more at

Scottsville Center for Arts and the Natural Environment invites artists to submit cohesive bodies of work for its “VALLEY. STREET. SCAPE” exhibition, which will open Aug. 20. Applications are required by Friday.

Digital images of works proposed for the exhibition must be sent to by Friday. Applicants whose work is selected will be notified by July 30. For details, go to

There is no clear before-and-after in this, but there are key episodes and an evolution from portraiture as a natural likeness to portraiture as a symbolic, allegorical and literary form.

The virtual version has some advantages over being in-person. It allows some to take part for longer periods. It also is free of physical hurdles, like driving downtown in the District of Columbia, trying to find parking and heading to the spot to meet up with the rest of the group, Grady said. Typically, getting in and out of the museums would add about 30 minutes to each program.
