Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Arlene Shechet

Friday, April 27, 2018, 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Arlene Shechet was born in 1951 in New York City. Fascinated by the way things are made, Shechet likens her studio to both farm and factory. Employing an experimental approach to ceramic sculpture, she tests the limits of gravity, color, and texture by pushing against the boundary of classical techniques, sometimes fusing her kiln-fired creations with complex plinths formed of wood, steel, and concrete.

By incorporating casts of firebricks and porcelain slip molds into her sculptures (revealing the tools of industry), she reflects on and investigates the tradition of decorative arts. Variously sensual, humorous, and elegant, her clay-based vessels evoke the tension between control and chaos, beauty and ugliness, perfection and imperfection. Considering herself an installation artist who happens to make objects, Shechet focuses intently on ensuring that the display, sight lines, and relationships of the objects in her exhibitions change with every view while maintaining formal equilibrium.

The Department of Theatre Arts at SUNY New Paltz presents Avenue Q in McKenna Theatre April 19-22 & 26-29.

Music & Lyrics by Robert Lopez & Jeff Marx Book by Jeff Whitty Directed by Bria Walker

The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad name Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way across Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.

Tuesday, May 1, 2018, 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

A Passion for Lakes and Ecological Puzzles: How Cyanobacteria, Cyberinfrastructure, Citizens and Scientists are Advancing Freshwater Science Dr. Kathleen Weathers, Carey Institute Ecosystem Ecologist

Dr. Kathleen C. Weathers received her master’s degree from Yale University and Ph.D. from Rutgers University. Her research is focused on understanding how biology influences geochemical cycles: how lake cyanobacteria affect nutrient cycles, trees influence nitrogen cycling, or how fog and ecosystems interact at the spatial scale of landscapes and in the face of global environmental change. Dr. Weathers also works at the interface of science and citizen science focusing on lakes and watersheds. She is the G. Evelyn Hutchinson Chair of Ecology and Senior Scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, NY, an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the Ecological Society of America (ESA), and co-chair of the grassroots Global Lakes Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON). Weathers carries out biogeochemical research in ecosystems around the world focusing on carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, and other elemental cycling.
