Join the School of Art and Design for a lecture/presentation presented by Keith Lemley, candidate for assistant/associate professor in glass in the School of Art and Design.

"I focus on the quiescent potential of materials and environments to be more and different than how they are currently perceived and understood; fulfilling an innate desire to explore, discover, share, and think.

"Drawing attention to physiological systems of vision, thought, and memory, I am interested in making conspicuous our abbreviated and abstracted understanding of reality, time, and identity. Initially capturing attention through formal means, the content of my work then enters the cognitive as one actively relates this experience with those already held in the mind as memory.

"At this juncture of feeling and thought meaning is produced. By delaying this process through reorganizing the fabric of the everyday into the unusual, a heightened sense of the present is felt. Ultimately, one walks away more self aware and delighted in everyday visual ephemera and the experience of being a living breathing being."

SAGE: Write a Piece for the Vagina Monologues!

- Location: N/A

Students Advocating Gender Equality is organizing the Vagina Monologues. This year though we would like female writers, who feel inspired by the play, to write their own pieces to be performed in addition to already written monologues.

These could be monologues, dialogues, or short performance pieces that stay true to the spirit of the VM by exploring the feminine experience. Contact SAGE at sage@alfred.edu for more information or to send in pieces. Submissions should be in a little after Spring Break!
