Real Estate Related News Support Seniors Safe at Home!

Seniors Safe at Home helps senior citizens make critical repairs to their homes. The Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors, Blue Ridge Home Builders Association and AHIP are joining forces to help local senior citizens stay safe, warm and dry. Together, they are raising funds, building awareness, and making repairs. The community is being asked to help by sending a tax-deductible donation to AHIP by July 15, 2012 so that Seniors Safe at Home can reach its $25,000 goal.

• $500 replaces a hot water heater • $1,000 covers patching and coating of a mobile home roof • $2,000 buys a handicap access ramp AHIP purchases all materials from local businesses and employs local subcontractors. Your donation will go a long way in helping ensure that no senior citizen in our community will have to wait for an urgent home repair. AHIP is a 501(c)(3) not-forprofit organization and your donation to AHIP is fully tax-deductible. You can donate online at www., and click the “donate now” button. Under additional comments, select Seniors Safe at Home from the drop-down menu. Or you can mail a check, payable to AHIP, 2127 Berkmar Drive, Charlottesville VA 22901, attn: Seniors Safe at Home. Please write Seniors on the memo line of your check. If you have questions, or would like more information, please contact: Ravi Respeto, AHIP’s Development Director, 434.817.2447 x26 |; or Kay Sands, Chair, CAAR’s Senior Safe at Home Committee; 434.220.7637 |

What’s Happening Around Town? The program helps low-income senior citizens (aged 62 and older) who live in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Right now, AHIP has a waiting list for urgent repairs. More than 60 elderly households are waiting for help, and they field new calls every week. Seniors Safe at Home is raising funds so that no senior has to wait for help. Repairs tackle such items as leaking roofs, broken furnaces, water and waste emergencies, loose steps, electrical and plumbing hazards, insecure windows and doors, and more. Repairs range from $100 to $6,000, with an average cost of $2,000. Donations go a long way to help: • $30 buys a box of screws for assembling a wheelchair ramp • $50 covers paint and paint supplies for three rooms of a house • $100 buys a square foot of shingles

Andrew Owen, the co-founder and director of the festival that has made Charlottesville an important stop for serious photographers and photo lovers each June, has fond memories of the slide show parties wildlife photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols used to hold in his Albemarle County backyard. A 25-year tradition, these annual one night affairs, last held in 2005, drew as many as 500 people from as far away as Washington D.C. and New York City. “The idea was that anybody who showed up could show work,” Owen says. “So you might have a National Geographic photographer showing his newest project and that would be

Owen is “particularly excited about Stanley because he’s so analog. He’s a strong critic of what digital has done to photography, and for a lot of the young photographers in the audience it will be a perspective they don’t know anything about.” Greene will be interviewed by photojournalist Jean-François Leroy at the Paramount on June 7 at 7:00 p.m. Donna Ferrato’s unflinching documentary work is on display in the McGuffey Art Center’s Main Gallery. Ferrato determined to shine a light on the lot of battered women early in her career, after seeing a man hit his wife. Her exposés of domestic violence add up to “powerful and important work,” Owen says. “Nobody has made a contribution to this field quite the way she has.” Ferrato’s 1991 collection, Living with the Enemy, the first book-length photographic exploration of domes-


tic abuse, has been reprinted four times and sold 40,000 copies worldwide. Since 9/11 she has focused on her Lower Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca, a now trendy area with elegant landmark buildings and a gritty commercial and industrial history. Ferrato will be interviewed at the Paramount on June 8 at 4 p.m. by Alex Chadwick, journalist and cocreator of National Public Radio’s Morning Edition. A retrospective of the work of Alex Webb is on display at 2nd Street Gallery. “Alex is the photographer’s photographer,” Owen says. “He has been copied and emulated for 30 years.



Each year the festival celebrates “three legends of photography who have made an indelible mark on the medium.” This year’s three Insight Artists—Stanley Greene, Donna Ferrato, and Alex Webb—who largely work as photojournalists, will be interviewed at the Paramount Theater in separate evenings devoted to their work. Stanley Greene’s work is showing in a specially constructed gallery at 306 Main Street adjacent to Bank of America. Although Greene has produced iconic images in such news hot spots as Croatia, Rwanda, the Berlin Wall and the post-Katrina Gulf Coast, he rejects both the photojournalist and the artist labels, claiming the former has been “bastardized” and preferring the idea of being “a photographer, just being photographer.” A photographer “is someone who looks at the world and tries to

followed up by the neighbor who just got back from a family vacation. It was that campfire spirit that got us started.” Now in its sixth year, LOOK3 has grown out of beloved informal gettogethers to a month-long community happening highlighted by “three days of peace love and photography” on and around Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall. David Doubilet’s stunning underwater images of the world’s oceans grace the Mall. Exhibitions by nine other artists are on display all June. Open air slide shows plus artist interviews, book signings and master classes all designed to showcase a vibrant, evolving art form take place June 7-9. “I call it an immersive public arts experience,” Owen says. “Photographs are hanging in the trees; they’re on the sides of buildings; they’re in the galleries. We have shows in the Paramount and the Pavilion, and they’re in all the coffee shops. Any business with wall space that puts up art is showing photography in June.” Since it was first held in 2007, LOOK3 has drawn photo fans from 46 U.S. states and 26 other countries. Eighty-five percent of attendees who buy three-day festival passes come from out of town. Besides pumping tourist dollars into the area economy, the festival organization itself spends liberally in the local business community as it produces exhibits and events that are free and open to all.

GREENE make some sense of it for themselves, and for everyone else,” Greene says. “And that’s what I want to do.” A man who believes in believes working deep and thorough, Greene spent more than a decade in Chechnya as Chechnyans fought Russia for independence. “He stands his ground,” says fellow photographer David Griffin, curator of Greene’s exhibition. “He’s very impassioned and refuses to compromise his values.”

ture. This year’s photos from the 40year career of National Geographic underwater photographer David Doubilet, including coral reefs, blueringed octopuses, leafy sea dragons, schools of giant bumphead parrotfish, and tiger sharks, make the Mall the setting for “a self-guided tour of the world’s most fascinating ocean environments.” Under Exposed, Doubilet’s interview with Alex Chadwick, takes place at the Paramount on June 6 at 7:30 pm. Friday and Saturday evenings at 9:00, the festival will take over the nTelos Wireless Pavilion for Shots and Works, two hours a night of what Owen describes as “visual essays by photographers from all over the world,” culled by “advisory boards from New York who look at hundreds of potential projects.” These onscreen projections will feature new and innovative work from both professionals and emerging talents in photojournalism, fine art, and everything in between. Rather than presenting a smorgasbord of individual photos, the 40 artists will show entire projects


baZaN constructed free from commercial restraint, sometimes with musical accompaniment. Shots on Friday will be a sort of Fridays After Five continued in the dark, and still free. Tickets for Works on Saturday are $10. Each evening will follow the same format, but with different participants.

wEbb His use of color is singular.” Webb was first inspired to use color in the 1970s when forays to Haiti, the Caribbean and the U.S.-Mexico border, so different from the New York and New England environments he’d been documenting, led him to switch from black-and-white to capture the South’s particular heat and light. Webb “is one of the most patient photographers still working today,” Owen says. “He will go and find a beautiful wall or a particular street intersection and just wait; he’ll go back to it every night when he thinks the light’s right and just wait for something to happen.” Webb will be interviewed by essayist and novelist Geoff Dyer at the Paramount on June 9 at 4:00 p.m. LOOK 3’s most popular show each year is the one hanging in the trees—the trees along the Downtown Mall. Intended to promote environmental awareness and conservation, the exhibit features images from na-

on a team that received the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. Addario’s exhibit Veiled Rebellion is on display at McGuffey. Bruce Gilden’s criterion for a good street photograph is that it makes you smell the street. “He’s proven that the street is an exotic destination,” says guest curator Vince Musi. “I’ve been known for taking pictures very close,” Gilden says, “and the older I get, the closer I get.” Gilden’s exhibition Street Smart, including images from Coney Island, Tokyo, and Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, are on display on the wall outside the Regal Cinema.

Hank Willis Thomas is a rising art world star whose central subject is the black male figure as portrayed in the media. “Thomas appropriates images from popular culture—advertisements, magazines—and strips

Thomas’ Myth(ology) has been printed on vinyl banners and is displayed on the Freedom of Speech Wall on the Mall. “There has been a lot of talk about race relations in Charlottesville,” Owen says, referring to the City’s ongoing Dialogue on Race initiative, “and I think that this is going to be an important contribution to that conversation because it is about how black males are perceived in popular culture.” When Camille Seaman was growing up as part of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, a self-governing tribe in a small village outside Long Island, New York, she was taught that the human race and the natural world are intimately connected. “This false idea that we as humans are separate from nature is what I seek to challenge with my images,” she says today. Seaman’s conviction is reflected in a body of work that guest curator David Griffin describes as dramatic and sometimes ominous. Seaman herself compares her photos of polar ice in the Arctic and Antarctica to portraits of ancestors, each revealing a unique personality. Her exhibit The Last Iceberg is at Chroma Arts Project.

Natural Stone & Tile:Beauty


ranite, Travertine, Marble, Tile—everywhere, eternally! Its eye-catching beauty, timeless quality, and universality strike most visitors to Italy and the Mediterranean with awe. Natural stone has been used as a building material for eons because it weathers many different climatic conditions, just as it does in nature. Tile ranks with natural stone in its durability, while its design options are limitless and magnificent. Beyond beauty and durability, using natural stone and tile is a smart investment, being more trouble free and cost effective than many imitative products, and their sustainability makes these materials the best choice. So even if you’re not building the Duomo, but plan your renovation to last, you can’t do better than to use natural stone and tile products, both indoors and out.

The Many Shades of Green

CAAR Real Estate Weekly | celebrating 20 years 1992-2012

m a y 3 1 - j u n e 6 , 2 0 1 2 | I s s u e 21 - 22

‘Green’ and ‘sustainable,’ like ‘organic,’ have become buzzwords and their overuse has made many people skeptical. Basically, sustainable or green building is the result of a design process that focuses on increasing the efficiency of resource use—energy, water, and materials. A green building reduces its impact on human health and the environment during its life cycle—from site selection through to eventual disposal or removal of its products. The building industry is no different from others, having many products that claim to be ‘green.’ But natural stone is the original green building material. It is neither bonded by petroleum based resins nor does it emit VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into your home. Stone products can be cleaned with Ph-neutral dish detergent and are 100 percent recyclable, with afteruse in other projects or crushed for roadbeds, etc. Tile, a manufactured product, has breathtaking beauty and longevity just as outstanding as natural stone. In addition to limitless design options, tile is also inherently sustainable, hygienic, and extremely durable. Sustainable pro-

Plus by Francesca Toscani

duction by quality manufacturers is on the upswing as are choices, including tiles composed of recyclable materials (glass, leather, etc.). But, sustainability means more than recycled products. Clean water and its usage are major environmental concerns globally. Domestic stone fabricators utilize a filtration system for their wastewater, while cutting edge technology has a closed-loop, 100 percent water recycling system that dramatically lowers consumption. According to the Marble Institute (, quarrying has improved enormously

from an environmental perspective. The US, Canada, and Europe especially have reclamation plans in place for when operations cease. As a result, some of those beautiful state parks, golf courses, lakes, and recreation areas you see on ‘Sunday drives’ may be former quarries.

Much More than Green While websites can educate, to get the lowdown on what’s happening locally Real Estate Weekly visited two area businesses that specialize in natural stone and tile—from the exquisitely rare to the sublimely staid.

Pete Sandfort of SariSand Tile and John Cogswell of Cogswell Stone satisfied the quest for information, and their showrooms, the desire for beauty. Entering SariSand Tile, you’re greeted with an array of texture and color that comforts with warmth and excites with possibilities. Tiles from many nations open a breadth of ideas and potential, and Pete Sandfort and the other designers are expert guides to help winnow the choices to a few that will make your project come alive. Sandfort says that since the economic downturn, only one or two area custom builders specify sustainable building products, including tile. Most people, however, are interested in doing ‘the right/green thing’ and at SariSand you’ll see a wide array in a broad price range. Exquisite leather and glass tiles, ‘wood planking,’ and much more. Visit first and then visit SariSand Tile on Berkmar Court. John Cogswell has been in the building and decorative stone business, literally from the ground up, for 22 years. Visiting Cogswell Stone in Palmyra, and speaking with him personally, is an education that is mandatory before beginning any project—interior or exterior. At the inclusive showroom and yard that exude an impression of solidity and beauty, your senses will be sated as you see and feel the difference between slate, soapstone, limestone, travertine, marble, granite, onyx, and others. Cogswell can show you what stone is best for your practical needs and guide you in design and product choice to achieve the look you want. Cogswell is forthcoming about environmental differences of quarries—domestic and international— helping you make choices based on your values and the value you want for your project. Visiting is a good first step, but a drive to Palmyra is a must. Sandfort and Cogswell agree that in the Charlottesville area, while the choices are many, only a few projects push the edges of design. But even if your tastes run to the more traditional or classic, SariSand Tile and Cogswell Stone can still help make your project unique. Visit them—you won’t be disappointed.
