Art, with spirit

The work of local artist KB Joseph is on display at The Daily Grind Coffee House and Café in Short Pump for a three-month period as part of owner Sam Jarrar's ongoing effort to spotlight the works and talents of local visual and musical artists.

Joseph, a James Madison University graduate, has won multiple awards for her work and publications in The Virginia Art Education Association Magazine and The Visual Arts Center of Richmond. Her style of movement and “hidden” imagery involves artistic movements such as futurism, cubism, abstract expressionism and even graffiti. The series on display was inspired by the mental and physical strength developed from major life events and from the analysis of the Olympic spirit.

CAT Theatre announces cast of Sherlock Holmes play

CAT Theatre’s 51st season will open with Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, which will run from Oct. 24-Nov. 8. Adapted by Steven Dietz, it is based on the original 1899 play by William Gillette and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and was the winner of the 2007 Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play.

The plot follows what seems to be the end of the career of the world’s greatest detective as he is confronted with a case far too tempting to ignore. When the King of Bohemia faces blackmail by famed opera singer Irene Adler, Holmes and his faithful companion, Dr. Watson, find themselves falling into the trap of evil genius Professor Moriarty. As Holmes says, “The game is afoot Watson, and it is a dangerous one!” > Read more.
