That includes a monthly ‘hello’ from me! I welcome comments and feedback and you can always contact me at aefimetz@vagazette.com! We are fortunate to live in an area that is so culturally diverse. There are dozens of organizations ranging from art galleries to performing arts that regulary present programs designed to entertain, educate and deepen appreciation for creativity. As the arts reporter for the Virginia Gazette for the past 24 years, I have seen firsthand the steady growth in all artistic areas. And that is truly good news! People have moved to our area from across the U.S., and many of them bring a wealth of talent which they have shared with our community. During Arts Month, there are literally dozens of chances to be entertained and inspired ranging from musical entertainment at A Touch of Earth to Plein Air at the Williamsburg Winery. Whatever your likes, whatever your passion, take part, enjoy. Attend alone or with friends. But take it in. Experience all our growing artistic community has to offer.

Positive results I consistently get a noticeable response from my ads placed in the “Williamsburg Magazine”. I run a small-sized ad monthly and it brings in tourists and locals alike. The staff is easy to deal with and very helpful. If I had to cut my advertising budget, this would be the last to go. -Jennifer Raines Owner, Quirks of Art 20

I cannot say enough good things about the effectiveness of advertising in the Williamsburg Magazine. This magazine is distributed so widely, via the newspaper, at businesses all over town, at rest stops, etc. If you are not advertising in the Williamsburg Magazine, you are missing a very crucial opportunity to reach those who visit and live in this community! The rates are very reasonable for what is offered and it is truly the most bang for your buck! I would drop every other advertisement I run before I would drop the Magazine. -Julia Carter, Owner Chickadees Fine Furniture, Antiques & Home Décor 36

Those who drive up Richmond Road in Lightfoot may pass by the Parker Piano Outlet without knowing that housed within the store is a 6-room gallery of musical instruments and other memorabilia associated with the history of music. The Virginia Musical Museum opened in June and since has been attracting those who are interested in learning more about famous Virginians who have played a part in musical history and to see examples of instruments, keepsakes and items that can’t be seen anywhere else. Owner Buddy Parker and his wife Peggy, have been collecting rare items for more than 40 years. For the past 20, they have been working toward opening a museum to display their finds. That finally came to fruition June

22.The response of who have come to take the tour of the bileveled gallery has been enthusiastic. “The response has been very positive,” Buddy Parker said recently, while providing a tour of the museum. “People go through it and remark that they never knew that all of this was here.” The Parkers opened the Piano and Organ Outlet in 1988. “I remember that because of the 88 keys on the piano,” Peggy Parker said with a laugh. The couple has been selling musical instruments since, but have always had a goal of opening the museum, which is now located in the back section of the store. It features a collection of antique nickelodeons, music boxes, phonographs, pianos, organs and other instruments.

Klinger has mastered the art of “molecular gastronomy,” a chemical transformation of ingredients to give his dishes a distinctive, brilliant taste. “We try to keep the quality consistent, while keeping things different,” Dengs said. “We change the menu completely every eight to ten weeks to provide our customers a new experience. We also change the art along with the food depending on the season.” The location on Center Street in New Town has proved favorable for the restaurant. “This location is perfect. It is in a beautiful location, it has easy parking for our customers, and it attracts just the right customers,” Dengs said. Dengs realizes the collaboration necessary for the winning recipe. “We have a great team, the success is not all from me,” she said. “With our great staff and our head chef being one of the best in the country, it is a team effort.” Art aficionados may take particular interest in the restaurant’s regular “Meet the Artists Night,” which showcases the work of various artists. Tanner Sheldon is an intern for the Virginia Gazette.

The tour begins with a room dedicated to several pieces the Parkers have obtained from amusement parks including “Laughing Sal” a large laughing animated piece that was obtained from the collection of Jim Wells of Fairfax. “We thought it would be fun to have an amusement and circus items,” Parker said. “So that is what that section is all about.”

Also included in that room is a brightly painted calliope, a Wurlitzer organ and one of Parker’s favorite items, a French Plerodienque music box. “The reason I like it, other than the rarity, is that we like it’s history,” he said. “It was once owned by James Sprigg, founder of Smithfiled Hams, and was later owned by President James Madison’s fourth generation nephew. So it has a lot of Virginia history associated with it.” Parker has come up with a high-tech way to allow people to hear the instruments playing without having to demonstrate them which could compromise them by constant use. An iPad tour of the museum simultaneously plays on a large-screen TV has been mounted on the wall to give people the chance to hear their sound. Upstairs, the gallery opens up to include a history of recorded

music ranging from Edison’s tin foil phonograph to the more elaborate opera phonograph and first talking doll. There are also several pieces on display including a tiny harmonica, which was donated to the museum by local resident Buddy Wakefield. “I have been impressed by the people who have donated things to the museum since they found out we were opening it,” Parker said. One of the rarest pieces in the museum is a Joshua Shudi harpsichord which dates to 1770. It is one of the two known to exist. It has been completely restored by Virginian, Louis Dolive. A few rooms are dedicated to Virginia’s famous artists including Wayne Newton, Bruce Hornsby, The Statler Brothers, Pearl Bailey, Polk Miller, The Carter Family, Patsy Cline, Ruth Brown, Ralph Stanley, Gene Vincent, Ella Fitzgerald and Roy Clark. “A lot of people don’t realize how many Virginians played a role in the development of music,” he said. One of the most impressive is the 1978 Clenet Roadster automobile which was willed to Wayne Newton by the late Marvin Gaye. The piece encompasses the Wayne Newton room in the lower level. “There were 250 made and this is number 69,” Parker said. “It is all original except the tires and the battery.” He said Newton contacted him last year about the prospects of buying the car from him. Parker’s response? “I don’t think I’ll sell it,” he said with a laugh. Want to go? The museum is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, military. Kids are $5, and those under 4 get in free. Call 3035907 or visit www.virginiamusicalmuseum.com. WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / SEPTEMBER 2013

The taggers have an extreme range that far exceeds paintball or airsoft plus they are pinpoint accurate even if your target is hundreds of feet away. They are equipped with tactical slings and red dot sights.

In traditional laser tag winning is based on walking around a maze and shooting everything that ashes. Tactical Adventure Games has many different missions where players must work as a team to achieve their goal. It is even possible for a skilled TAG player to win the game for their team without ever ďŹ ring a shot. The game is recommended for adults and children over 8 years old. Want to go?

Arts month blooms

in the garden

By Ann Efimetz

Arts Month will be celebrated in the Williamsburg Botanical Garden with a plant sale scheduled 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 28. “Art in the Garden” will feature various plants, flowers, bushes and garden-related art work. The theme fits well with the month-long celebration of the arts in the Historic Triangle. “Planning a garden is artistic,” said Karen Jamison, president of the garden’s board. The garden will be in bloom with fall flowers and

those who attend will have choices of various materials to bring home for their landscapes. A visit to the Williamsburg Botanical Garden is an apt way to observe Arts Month. It provides visitors with a quiet respite and is overflowing with colors and textures. There are 15 sections in the garden, all bursting with interesting plants. Sections include the Native Plant Garden, Therapy Garden, Native Grass Garden and the Bulb Garden. Plants are distinguished with small signs. The garden even contains a geocache in the Calcareous Ravine. Geocaching is a treasure hunting game where you use a GPS to hide and seek containers with other participants in the activity. One of the focal points is a large butterfly bench located in the center of the garden. It was a gift from the Williamsburg Area Council of Garden Clubs to commemorate their 50th anniversary. Jamison said the bench has been a great addition to the garden landscape. “We were quite thrilled about the bench,” she said. The garden is located in Freedom Park at the intersection of Centerville and Longhill Roads. It is open every day, dawn to dusk. For more information, visit www.williamsburgbotanicalgarden.com.
