In Plein Site is a must-see exhibit that embraces the spontaneity of plein air painting and ability of artists to capture the essence of downtown Suffolk on canvas. The works featured in this exhibit are the result of a day-long plein air painting adventure on Saturday, May 5, 2018, throughout Downtown Suffolk. The day of painting will culminate in a Crititique and Wet Paint Sale reception from 4:30-6:30pm at the Suffolk Center. The "People's Choice Award" will be presented at that time. Special Thanks to Event/Exhibit Co-Chairs, Sandy Waters and Barbara Harris

In 1954, Batman and Robin were "outed" as closet homosexuals, an accusation that caused the comic's creators to skirt sexuality in the Batman comics. This presentation by Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (FMFA) Speaker Christopher Irving parallels their plight against the backdrop of gay rights, and women's lib, from the late 1930s through the 1970s. Subjects covered include the communist witch hunt, the Batman TV show, pop art and camp, the sexually chaotic Batwoman of the Eisenhower era and the liberated Batgirl of the 1960s.
