The Ivories - piano parts - Mary Ann LomonacoThe State University of New York is celebrating New York Foundation of the Arts Fellows’ winning grants and fellowships during the last thirty years of NYFA’s granting. The Mid-Hudson is the first region to schedule events.

SUNY Orange is participating in this celebration of the arts by having events on both campuses during the Fall 2017 semester. The first event is an eight-artist exhibit on view in Orange Hall Gallery August 24 through October 3, 2017:

Innovator and Activist Visual Artists:
SUNY Celebrating New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships

Artworks have been created in various media including paintings, drawings, lithographs, fresco-secco, paper art, wood-cuts, and three-dimensional works in repurposed and recycled materials.  The subjects of the works vary greatly, making this an interesting show to enjoy and investigate.

Artists included in this show are Andrea Moreau, Angela Basile, Beth Sutherland, Jill Parisi, Marisa Gonzales Silverstein, Phyllis Gay Palmer, Mary Ann Lomonaco, and Ivy Dachman. They reside in Dutchess, Ulster, and Westchester Counties.

During the reception in Orange Hall Gallery on Thursday, September 7 from 6:30 to 8:30pm, some of the participating artists will speak briefly during a panel discussion about the effects their grants had on their lives as artists. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

Hanging by a Thread - paper, thread - Marisa Gonzales SilversteinRegular gallery hours are 9am to 8pm, Monday through Thursday and 9am to 6pm on Friday. The gallery is closed for the Labor Day Weekend.

The show in Orange Hall Gallery has been curated by artist/adjunct art professor Polly Giragosian.

In addition, two other NYFA artists’ shows are opening in the region: the large touring NYFA show opens at a reception at SUNY New Paltz on Saturday, September 9 from 5 to 7pm. And a local exhibit showcasing Ulster County NYFA recipients opens on the SUNY Ulster campus on Friday, September 8 from 5 to 7pm.

NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowships are administered with leadership support from New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

LINES OF INQUIRY....PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS, MODELS, MIXED MEDIA, THREE-DIMENSIONAL WORKS....

Monday, August 7 to Sunday, October 15
Kaplan Hall, Mindy Ross Gallery (NBG)

Lineation - acrylic on canvas - by Vivien Abrams CollensVivien Abrams Collens by by Jon MalinowskiTwo and three-dimensional, small and large works are on the walls as well as free-standing in the Mindy Ross Gallery at SUNY Orange. Additionally, several media are represented in the three-dimensional artworks in the glass vitrine cases in the Foyer of the Mindy Ross Gallery. The exhibit extends from August 7 through October 15, 2017.

Viewers will be able to experience the “playful dynamic approach” which Collens says guides her in painting and creating three-dimensional works in the forms of models and large pieces. Through her works she would like to convey to viewers her “curiosity-fueled thought process [which] is at the heart of my artmaking process.”

The artworks are engaging because something new seems to come forth when looking at them from different angles. Also, her choices of colors are very inviting. One goes away happy.

To complement this multi-faceted art exhibit, Collens is offering an art master class – workshop, Moving Between 2 and 3 Dimensions, starting at 3pm on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 in the OCTC Great Room 101. Additionally, immediately fGeomeTREE - model for large scale sculpture by Vivien Abrams Collensollowing the workshop, an art reception is scheduled from 4:30 to 6:30pm in the gallery and foyer. These consecutive events plus the exhibit are free and open to the public.

Vivien Abrams Collens received a BFA at Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, and an
MFA at Instituto Allende, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Her works are in many corporate and private collections and have been in numerous group and solo shows in NYC, the mid-Hudson Valley, New England, Cleveland, and other parts of the US. In addition, several paintings on long-term loan can be viewed on the second and third floor hallway walls of Kaplan Hall and one three-dimensional work at Tower Building’s fourth floor.

Regular gallery hours are 8am to 9pm Monday through Thursday and 8am to 6pm on Fridays.

The Mindy Ross Gallery and Foyer are situated in the eastern section of the first floor of Kaplan Hall which is located at the corner of Grand & First Streets on the Newburgh campus of SUNY Orange.

The Science of Safety: Aviation Security/Explosives Detection

How safe do you feel when you step on a commercial jet? What’s behind the regulations and the checking of everything—bags, shoes, body scans?

On Wednesday, October 11, 2017, David A. Atkinson, PhD, will discuss the scientific basis of the detection equipment used at airports. His talk will include information about the research in the laboratory and group, which he leads, that is changing the face of aviation security.  Come at 7pm to the Sandra and Alan Gerry Forum, Room 010 in the Rowley Center for Science and Engineering for The Science of Safety: Aviation Security/Explosives Detection, a lecture by Dr. Atkinson, an expert in the field of explosives detection technologies.David A. Atkinson, PhD

Translating the Mind’s Eye: paintings by Laura Von Rosk

A solo show in the Mindy Ross Gallery, Translating the Mind’s Eye: paintings by Laura Von Rosk, contrasts palettes created by the artist’s interpretation of extremely different parts of the world -- Antarctica and the Adirondacks along with the Hudson Valley. Von Rosk lives in the Adirondacks in upstate New York and has lived in Antarctica while being part of a scientific research team led by her husband, Sam Bowser, PhD, who grew up in the Town of Wallkill near Middletown. Untitled (tree - 2017) oil by Laura Von Rosk

“By using elements of landscape, mixing natural forms with memory and imagination, the images become ‘constructed’ landscapes. Forms are repeated, emphasized, manipulated, or invented,” she explains. Her paintings may be about a specific place, or a certain experience of a place, or a response to the work of other artists such as European early Renaissance paintings, as well as Persian manuscripts.  “The forms (lakes, ditches, open fields, holes, icebergs, glaciers) are not just a product of what I see, but combine what I know about constructing paintings with some deep and as yet unconscious memory system with what I see in the landscape.”

Von Rosk’s exhibit is scheduled from October 22 to November 21, 2017. The Opening Reception for the show is Sunday, October 22 from 2 to 4pm in the Mindy Ross Gallery and Foyer in Kaplan Hall where pianist Amy Baglione will provide music. Kaplan Hall is located at the corner of Grand and First Streets (GPS: 73 First St), on the Newburgh campus of SUNY Orange. Regular Gallery hours are 8am to 9pm, Monday through Thursday and 8am to 6pm, Friday.

Untitled (light on snow trail) oil by Laura Von RoskIn addition to the NYFA fellowship, her awards include an Individual Artist Support Grant from the Pollack-Krasner Foundation; an artist Fellowship Grant from the Bernheim Foundation in Clermont, KY; a Lake Placid Lodge, Adirondack Art Fund Grant; an Arts Council of the Northern Adirondacks, Artist and Community Exchange Grant; as well as several art residencies in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, California, and the State of Washington.

Laura Von Rosk holds a BFA from SUNY Purchase and an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. Presently, she is Gallery Director of the Lake George Arts Project. Questions may be directed to Cultural Affairs at   (845)341-4891 or cultural@sunyorange.edu
