ORANGE SEAS & ROBOT BEES M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition by Emily Beveridge School of Art + Design August 21-29, 2015 Seigfred Hall, Ohio University Art Gallery Reception Tuesday August 25, 5-8 p.m. Gallery Hours: 10am-5pm Monday-Friday Free and Open to the Public This is a fable of our future. From the beginning humans have been telling stories to make sense of, and add meaning to their lives. More often than not, these stories include animals. This is to be expected, because we share our world with them, and our very existence relies upon them. As history unfolded, the disconnect between our species and our natural world has grown larger. We now find ourselves experiencing a human caused mass extinction event, the 6th extinction, which is a result of our population numbers and our consumption. Orange Seas & Robot Bees is an exploration of current and upcoming environmental changes, paired with classic animal stories in my attempt to bridge the gap between myth and reality.

Earth Stories is a collection of 24 extraordinary works by Studio Art quilt Associates’ (SAQA) studio artists in celebration of SAQA’s 25th anniversary. Each artist was asked to select a project they believe in and create a work of art embodying the positive, non-political goals of the project. Some of the artworks celebrate the quiet beauty of nature while others look at how human influences and technology are shaping the earth’s future. The works were selected by juror Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, of Ohio. Dr. Mazloomi is an artist, author, historian, and curator and is acknowledged as one of the most influential African American quilt historians in the United States.

Midnight Madness is part of the practical-based portion of the MFA Playwriting Program consisting of the weekly, informal production of new work. It begins early in the week with a different writer from the program serving as the week’s producer. The producer selects the theme, style, or concept for the upcoming week’s production. Each writer must then write a three to five minute play based upon that theme, style or concept. Each play is written, cast, and rehearsed throughout the week in preparation for the Friday night, script-in-hand production presented before an audience. Madness takes place Fridays at 11pm in Hahne Theater in Kantner Hall. The performances last about an hour and are free and open to the public.

In 2015, the Athena Cinema celebrates its 100th Anniversary as one of the nation’s oldest movie theaters. The Athena will be hosting monthly screenings of iconic films through the decades. Join us as we celebrate! Surveillance expert Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is hired by a mysterious client’s brusque aide (Harrison Ford) to tail a young couple, Mark (Frederic Forrest) and Ann (Cindy Williams). Tracking the pair through San Francisco’s Union Square, Caul and his associate Stan (John Cazale) manage to record a cryptic conversation between them. Tormented by memories of a previous case that ended badly, Caul becomes obsessed with the resulting tape, trying to determine if the couple are in danger. Matinee pricing is $5.00 per ticket and any show happening before 6:00 p.m. is considered a matinee. For more information: http://athenacinema.com/100years/
