Join us in the gardens of the Peter Bullough Bullough Foundation for hors d’oeuvres and drinks as we celebrate our summer residents Nerys Apple, Robin Ha, and Shelby Hubbard. Tour the studios, visit the resident house, and learn more about our upcoming fall events as you listen to jazz and take in your surroundings. This event has been graciously sponsored in part by the Marion Park Lewis Foundation for the Arts and F&M Bank! While there is no fee to attend, we do ask that you RSVP! We can’t wait to see you there.
More about the artists:
Robin Ha (she/her) is a Korean American cartoonist based in Virginia. She is the author and the illustrator of Almost American Girl, a 2020 Harvey Award nominee and 2021 Walter Award honoree memoir, and Cook Korean!: A Comic Book With Recipes, a New York Times bestselling cookbook graphic novel. Her comics and illustrations have appeared in various publications including The Washington Post, and LA Times, as well as in anthologies highlighting Asian American culture including RISE: A Pop History of Asian America from the Nineties to Now, New Frontiers: The Many Worlds of George Takei, and Shattered: The Asian American Comics Anthology (Secret Identities).
Shelby Hubbard (she/they) is a sewist, sculptor, and writer. She was born and raised across the rural and urban South. Hubbard is reexamining her familial and intimate relationships through the tools and aesthetics of their girlhood and adolescence to better understand the short- and long-term impacts of trauma on their brain and body. Hubbard uses fabric, textiles, sewing, and paper mâché to bring these impacts into physical reality. Play, tactile exploration, craft skills, and therapeutic practices are processes to explore and negotiate with their experiences.
Nerys Apple (she/her) draws from experience in musical theater, classical music, jazz, folk, and rock to cultivate an expressive tonal, timbral, and compositional canvas. Her lyrics tend toward the introspective, taking dreams, real and fictionalized events, her own life experiences, and much more as inspiration, with a genuine and profound approach to performance which bridges the gap between listener and artist. She has studied vocal performance, music composition, and music production at the collegiate level. Nerys began working with the independent record label Boneyard Records in April of 2022, and her debut EP with Boneyard Records, "Habitual," was released on October 6th, 2022.
