"Silent Spaces" Photography by Casey Woodzell

  • Scottsville Center for Arts and Nature

SCAN Gallery, 401 Valley Street, Scottsville

CaseyWoodzell is a Fine Art Photographer in Scottsville VA. Casey grew up in Crozet VA and has lived in Scottsville area for nearly 15 years.  She majored in photography, graduating with a B.A. in 2000 from Virginia Intermont College.  

Casey’s interest in photography has always been to frame things the way she sees them.  Carefully arranging compositions with shapes and lines, or capturing the shadows and beams of light every where she looks.  Photography has also been an interest of hers as a way of stopping time. Documenting growth and change around major life events and tiny little moments that may otherwise go by unnoticed. 

  She has done a variety of assignments professionally, including real estate photography, pet portraits, weddings and events.  Casey is currently working on an exhibit called Silent Spaces that will be displayed in Scottsville, VA in May of 2017. The show consists of a  collection of photographs from many different abandoned places.  Exploring abandoned places has always been a curiosity and she is excited to share this collection of images that span over the last 12 months.

Jeremiah: An Award Winning Documentary

Jeremiah winner of the Edward R. Murrow National Award for Best News Documentary at the 2016 Emmys ceremony was written and directed by Mark Fastoso and produced by Alabama Public Television. Jeremiah first aired in November of 2015.

About the film:
July 18, 1965, U.S. Navy Commander Jeremiah Denton took off from the aircraft carrier USS Independence leading a 28-plane mission over the city of Thanh Hoa in North Vietnam. Denton’s plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire during the attack, and for the next eight long years, he would battle the North Vietnamese as a prisoner of war in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. As the senior American officer at the prison, Denton was forced by the North Vietnamese to participate in a press conference and told he must say the POWs were being treated well. Looking haggard, weak and beaten from the severe punishment he had undergone, Denton took advantage of that opportunity however, to send a secret message home, blinking out the letters T-O-R-T-U-R-E in Morse code.

This is a free offering in honor of our Veterans.

Bioblitz--Come be a scientist

  • Victory Hall Theater

This two day event begins with an introduction to the BIOBLITZ!

Nature is everywhere!  Plants and animals are what people notice the most often, but fungi, slime molds, bacteria, and "protozoans" can be incredibly abundant and diverse as well. This diversity of organisms is termed Biodiversity. My name is Jonathan Carpenter. I am a biodiversity and Bioblitz specialist. In short, a Bioblitz is a citizen-science driven event that focuses on a location's biodiversity. Education, science, and community are integral to the Bioblitz concept. A Bioblitz is for everyone, from school children to teachers to land managers to taxonomists. It is for anyone who has a stake in the nature world - and indeed that's all of us. Bring yourself, your family, your friends, your enthusiasm, your curiosity. Photographers welcome.  We will be documenting all forms of life that we find and recording our findings on iNaturalist, a citizen-science database hosted by California Academy of Sciences.
