Week of December 4
12/04/2019 3:00am

ARIES March 21-April 19 In composing this oracle, I have called on the unruly wisdom of Vivienne Westwood. Shes the fashion designer who incorporated the punk esthetic into mainstream styles. Here are four quotes by her that will be especially suitable for your use in the coming weeks. 1. I disagree with everything I used to say. 2. The only possible effect one can have on the world is through unpopular ideas. 3. Intelligence is composed mostly of imagination, insight, and things that have nothing to do with reason. 4. Im attracted to people who are really true to themselves and who are always trying to do something that makes their life more interesting.TAURUS April 20-May 20Im drowning in the things I never told you. Famous make-up artist Alexandra Joseph wrote that message to a companion with whom she had a complicated relationship. Are you experiencing a similar sensation, Taurus If so, I invite you to do something about it The coming weeks will be a good time to stop drowning. One option is to blurt out to your ally all the feelings and thoughts youve been withholding and hiding. A second option is to divulge just some of the feelings and thoughts youve been withholding and hidingand then monitor the results of your partial revelation. A third option is to analyze why youve been withholding and hiding. Is it because your ally hasnt been receptive, or because youre afraid of being honest Heres what I suggest: Start with the third option, then move on to the second.GEMINI May 21-June 20Ive got some borderline sentimental poetry to offer you in this horoscope. It may be too mushy for a mentally crisp person like you. You may worry that Ive fallen under the sway of sappy versions of love rather than the snappy versions I usually favor. But there is a method in my madness: I suspect you need an emotionally suggestive nudge to fully activate your urge to merge you require a jolt of sweetness to inspire you to go in quest of the love mojo thats potentially available to you in abundance. So please allow your heart to be moved by the following passage from poet Rabindranath Tagore: My soul is alight with your infinitude of stars. Your world has broken upon me like a flood. The flowers of your garden blossom in my body.CANCER June 21-July 22Try saying this, and notice how it feels: For the next 17 days, I will make ingenious efforts to interpret my problems as interesting opportunities that offer me the chance to liberate myself from my suffering and transform myself into the person I aspire to become. Now speak the following words and see what thoughts and sensations get triggered: For the next 17 days, I will have fun imagining that my so-called flaws are signs of potential strengths and talents that I have not yet developed.LEO July 23-Aug. 22An interviewer asked singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen if he needed to feel bothered and agitated in order to stimulate his creativity. Cohen said no. When I get up in the morning, he testified, my real concern is to discover whether Im in a state of grace. Surprised, the interviewer asked, What do you mean by a state of grace Cohen described it as a knack for balance that he called on to ride the chaos around him. He knew he couldnt fix or banish the chaosand it would be arrogant to try. His state of grace was more like skiing skillfully down a hill, gliding along the contours of unpredictable terrain. Im telling you about Cohens definition, Leo, because I think thats the state of grace you should cultivate right now. I bet it will stimulate your creativity in ways that surprise and delight you.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22Poet Juan Felipe Herrera praises the value of making regular efforts to detox our cluttered minds. He says that one of the best methods for accomplishing this cleansing is to daydream. You give yourself permission to indulge in uncensored, unabashed fantasies. You feel no inhibition about envisioning scenes that you may or may not ever carry out in real life. You understand that this free-form play of images is a healing joy, a gift you give yourself. Its a crafty strategy to make sure youre not hiding any secrets from yourself. Now is a favorable time to practice this art, Virgo.LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22In accordance with current astrological omens, heres your meditation, as articulated by the blogger named Riverselkie: Let your life be guided by the things that produce the purest secret happiness, with no thought to what that may look like from the outside. Feed the absurd whims of your soul and create with no audience in mind but yourself. What is poignant to you is what others will be moved by, too. Embrace what you love about yourself and the right people will come.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21I swear I became a saint from waiting, wrote Scorpio poet Odysseus Elytis in his poem Three Times the Truth. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you may be in a similar situation. And youll be wise to welcome the break in the action and abide calmly in the motionless lull. Youll experiment with the hypothesis that temporary postponement is best not just for you, but for all concerned.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21My greatest asset is that I am constantly changing, says Sagittarian actress and activist Jane Fonda. This description may not always be applicable to you, but I think it should be during the coming weeks. Youre primed to thrive on a robust commitment to self-transformation. As you proceed in your holy task, keep in mind this other advice from Fonda. 1. One part of wisdom is knowing what you dont need anymore and letting it go. 2. It is never too late to master your weaknesses. 3. If you allow yourself, you can become stronger in the very places that youve been broken. 4. The challenge is not to be perfect. Its to be whole. P.S. And what does it mean to be whole Be respectful toward all your multiple facets, and welcome them into the conversation you have about how to live.CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19You cant escape your past completely. You cant loosen its hold on you so thoroughly that it will forever allow you to move with limitless freedom into the future. But you definitely have the power to release yourself from at least a part of your pasts grip. And the coming weeks will be an excellent time to do just that: to pay off a portion of your karmic debt and shed worn-out emotional baggage.AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18Aquarian playwright August Strindberg didnt have much interest in people who regurgitate what they have learned from books. He was bored by stories that have been told over and over again was impatient with propaganda disguised as information and by sentimental platitudes masquerading as sage insights. He craved to hear about the unprecedented secrets of each persons life: the things they know and feel that no one else knows and feels. He was a student of the natural history of the human heart. I bring Strindbergs perspective to your attention, my dear one-of-a-kind Aquarius, because now is a perfect time for you to fully embody it.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20Its no fun being in love with a shadow, wrote Piscean poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. And yet she indulged profusely in that no-fun activity, and even capitalized on it to create a number of decent, if morose, poems. But in alignment with your astrological omens, Pisces, Im going to encourage you to fall out of love with shadows. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to channel your passions into solid realities: to focus your ardor and adoration on earthly pleasures and practical concerns and imperfect but interesting people.

Savoring the Moment
12/03/2019 12:00am

A lifelong, self-taught artist leaves his investment firm and gets his first show at Reynolds Gallery. Barry Purcell has loved making art his entire life, but hes taken an unusual path to arrive at his first big local show.Most of his life, hes been a star athlete and an executive at an investment management firm. A graduate of Collegiate School, Purcell took art classes at the University of South Carolina, where he was a soccer star on full scholarship. One of the reasons he abandoned his art major were the odd looks he received showing up to classes dressed like a jock in sweat clothes. I felt out of place, bottom line, he says. Purcell would transfer to James Madison University in fall of 1993, where he earned All-American status as the soccer teams goalie and captain, a team ranked second in the nation. After college, he played one year of professional soccer for the Richmond Kickers. But he loved painting, he says, and never stopped. After college there was business school and law school, then trips to Asia before Purcell began working for a hedge fund in association with Blue Pool Capital, now the family office for one of the founders of Alibaba Group, a Chinese multinational conglomerate. Purcell spent the next decade working in the high dollar finance world.The Richmond Times-Dispatch once published a story about him after he saved the life of a woman who was choking on her lunch during a business meeting at the Berkley Hotel. As she turned blue and others stared, Purcell leapt to her aid and applied the Heimlich maneuver. The kicker She was a nurse at Virginia Commonwealth University who taught emergency medicine, including the Heimlich maneuver.Three years ago, Purcells life underwent a major upheaval that would find him turning to his life-long love of art to make sense of it all. In 2016, he had decided to start a private investment firm, not knowing he was about to lose several close family members including his mother, grandmother, an uncle in a plane crash and an influential mentor, he says. Ultimately, I found a different perspective, he recalls, noting that he went on vacation with his family. I was feeling shook up, and I was taking a lot of photography. Really staring at a lot of it, manipulating it into these photo collages.Much of this work can be seen in his new show at Reynolds Gallery, A Place and Time, which involves tiled iPhone photos that combine images of nature and family in geometric patterns that require close viewing. Each colorful work represents one moment and features the latitude, longitude, day and time the images were taken. Your reality is comprised of your failures, happiness, all that creates what you see, he says. But when you can really break it down and look at things like the ocean, I forget about that stuff and focus on whats immediately in front of me.After some encouragement at Ricks Custom Frame and Gallery, and a corporate contact at Capital One who bought some of the work, Purcell now has his first big show at the Reynolds Gallery for most of December. A Place and Timepresents a series of deeply saturated photo collages. The works are comprised of repeated photographs, each captured from a dramatic perspective, notes Alice Livingston, director of Reynolds Gallery. The gallery has always focused on exhibiting emerging artists, and we are proud to support Barry in his new focus. Barrys first career has developed an incredible network of friends and supporters, and we are excited that Reynolds Gallery can serve as a connector between that community and Richmonds contemporary art scene. We have guests tonight coming in from Hong Kong, New York, and throughout the East Coast.Purcell, a previous Style Top 40 under 40 winner who helped start the Massey Alliance at VCUs Massey Cancer Center, is still active as an investor. Hes also the vice chairman of the JMU Foundations board of trustees. But Im really excited about getting back to art, he says.

RVA Dance Awards
12/03/2019 12:00am

The local dance community is growing and has an inaugural award ceremony. For the first time, the dance community of Richmond is coming together to hold its own awards ceremony. The inaugural 2019 RVA Dance Awards has 21 categories of dance superlatives, ranging from youth performer of the year to a lifetime achievement award.Each categorys nominees were announced after a public period of voting, resulting in more than 50 dancers and companies vying for trophies on Wednesday, Dec. 11.Deandra Clarke, the organizer of the event, is a director of Studio 4 Dance Agency and a professional hip-hop choreographer. She is most responsible for the sold-out event. I got the idea for the awards one night after dance rehearsal, Clarke says. We were all sweaty, and I thought, People in this industry need to be recognized for their hard work.Clarke created a website with a ballot asking local dance studios, companies, nonprofits and artists for nominations in the 21 categories. There were no limitations on how many times one person could vote. The official nominees were announced in September via the RVA Dance Awards social media page.Everything was numbers-based unless it came down to a tie, Clarke says. If that happened, I resorted to my voting committee comprised of local dance experts and professionals to make the final call.After the awards were announced, other members and organizations of the dance community expressed interest in Clarkes project and became in-kind sponsors. One sponsor is Katrina Boone, owner of Gianna Grace Photography and creator of Dancers of RVA. Boone has donated all photography including individual shoots of each nominee as well as photos of the blue carpet ceremony. When Deandra first announced that she was doing this, I immediately wanted to contribute, Boone says. I wanted them to feel celebrated, so Ive had about 40 10- to-15-minute shoots with every nominee that wanted one.Boones photography project, Dancers of RVA, features monthly dancers who practice or teach in Richmond by giving them professional dance photo shoots and quotes. She also provides each nominee for the ceremony with a dance shoot and a new quote.One of my favorite things I like to ask the dancers is, Why are you excited Boone says. Id listen to their stories and tales of how theyd gotten into dance, and I just wanted to share that excitement and enthusiasm with the world.Another sponsor is Dogtown Dance Theatre, a nonprofit dance organization that helps independent dancers start their careers. Dogtown has donated about 50 hours of rehearsal space for the performers of the ceremony. These performers include the Brand RVA, Karar Dance Company, RVA Dance Collective Youth Ensemble and Studio 4 Dance Agency.Dogtowns executive director, Jess Burgess, also wanted to contribute to Clarkes project in any way she could because it is one of the nonprofits visions to make Richmond a destination for dance professionals. The dance community has significantly grown in recent years, and we are all so grateful that Studio 4 and Deandra are making this happen, Burgess explains. Dance was one of the last art scenes in Richmond that did not have an annual awards ceremony and I believe it was because the community wasnt ready.Both Clarke and Burgess say they felt the growth of Richmond dance take root in 2018. Urban Bush Women visited the Modlin Center for the Arts last year and held auditions, free public classes and performances. More accessible dance events, classes and workshops appear to have sprouted in the city since then. Now the community is at a place where we can support and uplift one another without competing with one another, Burgess says. RVA Dance Collective also held a large collaborative dance production titled Dark Side of the Moon. The piece featured dancers from Dogwood Dance Project, Radar Dance Company and is nominated for best collaboration at the awards.I got to see Dark Side of the Moon, Clarke says, but I didnt get a chance to see Radars performance this year. I love how fast the community is growing and how much we support one another now. The 2019 RVA Dance Awards are being held at the Hofheimer Building on Wednesday, Dec. 11. It has sold out.

Word and Image: How Richmond Acquired ‘Rumors of War’
12/03/2019 12:00am

Pamela Royall discusses how her familys relationship with Kehinde Wiley helped bring a major work to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Editors note: Civic leader and art collector Pam Royall and her husband William were instrumental in securing Rumors of War, the major sculpture by American artist Kehinde Wiley, which will be publicly unveiled at its permanent installation in front of VMFA on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 3:30 p.m. Style arts writer Amanda Dalla Villa Adams recently sat down with Pam Royall to hear how the piece made its way to Richmond.Pamela Royall: When Kehinde was here three years ago, when we had his exhibition at VMFA, Bill Royall and I hosted him and his entourage at Try-Me Gallery and a lot of local art people were there as well. Bill had a chance to host Kehinde and they went to our home in Gloucester. They went fishing. We had purchased his work in the past, four or five of his pieces, and weve been big supporters of him. We have enough of a personal relationship that he kind of hinted to Bill that, while he was here three years ago. He was being inspired by the monuments on Monument Avenue, and he was working on a project. So, fast forward a couple of years, and Bill said, Whats going on with that project, Kehinde He said, Well, contact my gallery. We approached Sean Kelly Gallery early last spring. There were sketches and I think before it moved into the fabrication phase, they wanted to have a commitment because it is a $1 million-plus piece and it was fabricated in China. What we got excited about were the sketches that Kehinde had done. Sean Kelly is also a good friend of ours through the art world. When we expressed an interest in knowing more about the sculpture, it was really super, super secret. We both said to Sean that It absolutely should be in Richmond, Virginia. We understood that one piece was in production and they were maybe going to make one or two others at some future date, but we said No. 1 should really come to Richmond. Bill and I said personally we would make sure that, either we provided funds or wed help fundraise, so that it could be here. We got not only Alex Nyerges but also Michael Taylor and Valerie Cassel Oliver involved in conversations with the gallery. But I think the most significant thing that happened is when the museum said this is something we want to do at a board meeting in May 2019. Bill stood up and told everybody, This is our moment. This is the right place, the right time and the right thing to do and he said Pam and I are going to support this and for our family the idea that we would have our name associated with something of this significance at this time in Richmond was really important to us. Really, in typical direct-marketer fashion, he gave everybody else a call to action: Do you want to be associated with this important moment in the history of Richmond, Virginia And numerous board members and extended family members of the VMFA said Absolutely, I want to be part of it. The museum made a commitment that they were going to buy it. The board voted at that meeting that the museum would acquire the piece. I know in other press coverage its been stated that the museum commissioned the piece, but it is absolutely inaccurate and inappropriate because the artist made the piece and it was the artists idea to make the piece. It was purchased by the VMFA. I think its significant enough that the VMFA bought it, but Im offended by the notion that it has been stated that it was commissioned because the piece was already being manufactured when the museum stepped in. I didnt think it was necessary to put it on Monument Avenue. I think its proximity to Monument Avenue is significant. We have decided to leave that to a different group of people to figure out what should happen with Monument Avenue. I know that Bill drove Sean Kelly around Richmond and looked at potential places for it. We had a conversation with a friend of ours who said, Oh, it should be down on the river. It should be down in the Shockoe Bottom area. Im on the board of the Virginia Historical Society and if the VMFA had not said that they were in on making it happen, I wouldve approached our president at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture because I wanted it to be there. I thought the Boulevard-Monument intersection is so significant and the things that are happening to draw larger and larger audiences to both the Virginia Museum of History & Culture and the VMFA is really powerful in this moment. And I think it has been a turning point for both institutions in appealing to a much more expansive and diverse audience. Im inspired by the fact that it will continue a conversation. I would like, like so many Richmonders, for people to look at the city differently than what they may have thought of it in the past. Were not the same Richmond that we were five years ago much less decades ago. I think were still being judged by our history from which weve moved forward in very significant ways.The unveiling of the Kehinde Wileys Rumors of War takes place on Tuesday, Dec. 10, in front of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts at 3:30 p.m. Open to the public.
