Details: WASHINGTON AND LEE UNIVERSITY & Staniar Gallery presents:Salvador Dalí: Les Chants de Maldoror Artist Exhibit: Thursday, January 11 - Thursday, February 8, 2024 - Staniar Gallery/Wilson Hall/Lenfest Center. Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm. Lecture & Reception: Tuesday, January 30, 5:30pm - Wilson Concert Hall and Lykes Atrium/Wilson Hall/Lenfest Center Between 1933 and 1934, Salvador Dalí created 44 illustrations for Les Chants de Maldoror, a fantastical 1869 text written by Isidore Ducasse, better known by his pen name, the Comte de Lautréamont. Lautréamont's book had nearly vanished into obscurity when it was rediscovered in the 1920s by the French Surrealists, who championed its rebellious spirit and bizarre prose—elements Dalí complemented with an arsenal of personal visions drawn from his creative subconscious. The resulting etchings record the development of the artist’s ideas during one of the most fertile periods of his career and are considered his finest contributions to printmaking. Celebrating the 2024 Centennial Anniversary of the founding of the Surrealist movement, and in partnership with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts—which recently acquired the complete set of etchings that the artist made for the original 1934 edition—this exhibition will present Dalí's astonishing Maldoror prints with researched didactic materials by W&L students, as well as Surrealist catalogs and ephemera from the collection of Dr. Elliott King, Associate Professor of Art History at W&L. The exhibition is co-curated by Professor King and Dr. Michael R. Taylor, Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Art and Education at the VMFA. Salvador Dalí (1904-1989).

Details: W & L University presents a Staniar Gallery Exhibit and Lecture: "Florence As It Was: The Digital Reconstruction of a Medieval City" Exhibit: Tuesday, February 13 - Friday, March 22, 2024. Staniar Gallery: Wilson Hall/Lenfest Center. Hours: Mon-Fri 9-5 Lecture & Reception: Tuesday, February 13, 5:30pm. Wilson Concert Hall and Lykes Atrium/Wilson Hall/Lenfest Center This exhibition presents the ongoing art historical project "Florence As It Was", which aims to digitally reconstruct the Italian city the way it appeared at the end of the fifteenth century. Spear-headed by Washington and Lee's Sidney Gause Childress Professor in the Arts, George Bent, Florence As It Was combines three-dimensional point clouds of buildings, digitized documents, photogrammetric models of art works, translations of early modern descriptions, and original interpretative essays to create a historical representation of the city. Using virtual reality technology and computer stations, visitors to the exhibition will be able to explore 3D models of various architectural structures, view art works inside the buildings in which they were originally displayed and learn more about the Tuscan city as it existed over 500 years ago. Header: Cutaway view of S. Maria Novella, Florence, constructed ca. 1279-1450; Colored point cloud model; LiDAR scans with HDR photographs; Data collected in June 2021 and February 2022, edited and modeled in July 2021 and March 2022

Hours: M-F, 9-5 Lecture & reception: TBA In his post-sabbatical exhibition, Washington and Lee Assistant Professor of Art Sandy de Lissovoy presents sculptural constructions that explore interactions between landscape and mapping. De Lissovoy's work applies the aesthetics of abstraction to issues reflect upon contemporary environmental conditions. Combining diverse materials, such as metal and hand-dyed fabrics, de Lissovoy seeks an expression that resides between the accuracy of satellites and the poetry of imagined future landscapes. The show will also include collaborate works that are a visual conversation about translation, migration, proximity, and distance, made with Mexican artists Ander Azpiri and Griselda Rosas. Sandy de Lissovoy earned an M.F.A. from the University of California, Irvine, and a B.F.A. with Honors from CCA, San Francisco. He has had solo shows at Augustana University, Whittier College, Commonwealth and Council Gallery, Monte Vista Projects and Las Cienegas Projects.

Details: 2024 Chessie Trail Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K & 26.2 Relay October 26, 2024 www.runthechessie.org We are proud to announce that the Chessie Trail 10K has been selected for inclusion in the 2024 USATF Virginia Fall Distance Running Grand Prix! USATF members will be eligible for additional medals and scoring points towards the Grand Prix’s $3500 prize purse. Run The Chessie! Run America’s most spectacular rail trail! The Chessie Nature Trail was voted one of the top three recreational trails in the nation in 2023. The seven-mile Chessie Trail, situated at the southern end of the Shenandoah Valley, parallels the scenic Maury River and connects historic Lexington, Virginia, with the boom-town community of Buena Vista. The smooth, flat, and fast, gravel and grass trail runs along the former Chesapeake and Ohio rail line and parts of the earlier James and Kanawha Canal towpath. You’ll run 26.2 miles without ever having to cross a road, jump a curb, or pound your knees on concrete and asphalt. You’ll glide through an ever-changing landscape along the wild Maury River, through farmland and leafy canopies at their peak of fall color, past ruins of massive stone locks and dams. View wildlife from fish and ducks to rabbits, deer, wild turkeys, river otters, and even bald eagles (if you are lucky), feel the cool moist air as you pass small caves, and enjoy the serenity of a breeze rustling through a bamboo forest. A corps of the most dedicated and friendly volunteers you’ll ever meet has been working for 12 months to provide you with an unforgettable running experience and will cheer you on and provide support throughout the race. This event is sanctioned by USATF and all four race courses are USATF certified. The Marathon is a Boston Qualifier. Marathon runners will get to see the whole trail twice. You will be amazed at how the landscape changes as the sun comes over the cliffs transforming the narrow valley and the sparkling river at its bottom. Spectators will agree that this is the best marathon course ever as they cheer on their loved ones five times without ever having to leave the park-like setting of the start/finish area. And while we certainly hope this doesn’t happen, if you have to change your marathon run to a half marathon or ¾ marathon, you won’t have to worry about hitchhiking back to your car. Ideal for the first-time marathoner! USATF Certification VA22005DJR . Half Marathon runners will see nearly all of the trail as they head east towards Buena Vista, loop back to the starting line on the way to Lexington, and then loop back down to the finish line. USATF Certification VA22004DJR . 10K runners will head towards Buena Vista first, turning back just after South River, then continue past the starting line towards Lexington, turning once more and running the final 2.5K downhill to the start/finish line. USATF Certification VA22003DJR . Runners wishing to participate in the USATF Virginia Fall Grand Prix must be USATF members and enter their membership number on the registration form by Thursday, October 24 (11:59 pm). 5K runners will head towards Lexington, running along remote sections of the Maury River through forests and fields, and at the base of towering limestone cliffs. When the river bends into a double horseshoe, they will loop back for a slightly downhill finish. USATF Certification VA22002DJR . 26.2 Relay runners will follow the same course as the Marathon. There will be four legs to the relay of approximately 8.5m, 4.6m, 8.5m, and 4.6m. Runners may run more than one leg for their team. Each team will be issued a standard aluminum relay baton, which they will be required to carry on their bodies for the entire race. All exchanges will take place at the start/finish area. Teams are encouraged to decorate their baton with their team colors, logo, etc. The winning team in each division will be awarded a trophy. Winners will be determined by first across the finish line (not chip time). There will be three divisions, all female, all male, and mixed gender.

Main St., Lexington, VA 24450, except registrants who sign up the Friday just before the race. Those registrants will have to pick up their packets at the race, Saturday. You may pick up someone else’s packet, with their permission, a copy of their ID, and a signed waiver. Packets may also be picked up prior to the race near the starting line, Saturday 6:30-7:00 a.m. Participants will be required to show ID and sign a waiver to receive their packet and students must have current student ID. Course Description & Map: The trail follows a very gentle grade throughout. The surface is smooth gravel and grass, usually about 10 feet wide. Overhanging trees may drop branches and nuts, adjoining cliffs may drop rocks, there are still a couple of sections where livestock may be dropping things, there are a couple of small springs which may be seeping, and very rarely there may be a small root in the trail. So you will want to keep your eyes on the trail at all times, and watch where you step for many reasons. Full Marathon Course: Start time 8 a.m. The course starts and ends at the midpoint of the Chessie Trail. It consists of an out and back loop east towards Buena Vista, and then an out and back loop west towards Lexington. The full route will be completed twice. Half Marathon Course: Start time 8 a.m. The course starts and ends at the midpoint of the Chessie Trail. It consists of an out and back loop east towards Buena Vista, and then an out and back loop west towards Lexington. The race will start and finish on the Chessie Trail at the McKethan Park/I-81 overpass. From McKethan Park the course will go approximately 4 1/4 miles towards Buena Vista. At the boat launch near Buena Vista, the course will turn around and retrace the trail 6 3/4 miles towards Lexington. It will pass the starting line and continue until reaching the Lexington trailhead and then looping back about 2 1/2 miles back to the finish line at McKethan Park. 10K Course: Start time 8:15 a.m. Race will start and finish on the Trail at McKethan Park/I-81 overpass. From McKethan Park the course will go towards Buena Vista, 2.5 K, then turn around just after the South River bridge and proceed back to the starting line at McKethan Park, and continue 2.5K towards Lexington before turning back to finish at McKethan Park. 5K Course: Start time 8:25 a.m. Race will start and finish on the Trail at McKethan Park/I-81 overpass. From McKethan Park the course will go towards Lexington, 2.5 K, then turn around near the middle of the two horseshoe bends, and proceed back to the finish line at McKethan Park. 26.2 Relay Course: Start time 8 a.m. Same course as the Full Marathon. All exchanges will take place at the start/finish line. Aid/drink stations will be set up at the start/finish, all turn-around points, and near the South River bridge.

No animals allowed in race, except service animals. Ear buds are permitted, but are discouraged for safety reasons. Stay to the right when encountering oncoming runners. Walkers are welcome in the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon races. Spectators: Spectators may park at McKethan Park for free, and walk a short distance down to the trail and the start/finish line. There are very few access points to the trail and none with good parking. So the best choice for spectators is to remain at the start/finish line. The full and half marathon runners will come back by the start line about 8 1/2 miles into the race. 10K runners will also come by the start/finish area half way through their race. The start/finish area is beneath an I-81 overpass, so spectators may stay out of the sun/rain, if they so choose. There is a small amount of bleacher seating at the start/finish area, but you may want to bring your own chair. Results: Results will be posted at runroanoke.com and runthechessie.org Refunds & Transfers: Registrants may transfer to a different race, or defer, up to October 18, 2023. Transfers may require a small fee from runsignup.com plus any difference for transferring to a more expensive race. We are sorry that we cannot make refunds for any reason.
