The stage was set for an exercise at the Henrico County fire training facility last month. A three-story cinderblock structure represented the burning building. Traffic cones stood in each window, and dummies were hidden in the dark recesses within. Sirens could be heard in the distance.
Three fire trucks filled with trainees pulled up to the imaginary scene. Firefighters hopped out of one truck and initiated a search and rescue mission, soon emerging with one dummy and reentering to find another. Crew members from the second truck set up hoses, charged the lines and entered the building, expertly knocking down the cones with the water. > Read more.

Abstract paintings of Inge Strack (pictured) are on display through March 9 at the Gumenick Family Gallery at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen. Strack, a Chestefield painter of German origin, often paints in bold colors with a deep sense of emotion, focusing on brushstrokes, texture and form to find a balance. Strack’s painting is routed in the European tradition of expressionism but has found its own, unique language in following the American dream.
“I am not attempting to abstract the physical world," she said. "I draw my subject matter from inside of myself hoping to create a constant conversation between the viewer and the painting, especially since abstracts do not seem to answer but ask.” > Read more.
