Veterans Project: Odyssey Home

Female veterans of the U.S. military, as well as women from military families, will share personal stories of service and life after the military in Veterans Project: Odyssey Home, which will be presented at the Edson R. Miles Black Box Theater on the St. Lawrence University campus in Canton on September 14 and 15. Odyssey Home is the product of a collaboration among local veterans, members of the larger military community, and St. Lawrence University to create space for veteran-civilian community dialogue.

The University Chorus, comprised of students, faculty/staff, and members of the community, under the direction of Barry Torres, celebrates Christmas with a program called Angels and Shepherds featuring a 25-minute cantata by Ottorino Respighi, "Lauda per la Nativitá del Signore."

This concert will also be presented on Saturday, December 2 at 8 pm in Peterson-Kermani Performance Hall.

Free admission. Open to the public.

Art Gallery Reception

On Monday, September 4, at 4:30 pm, the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery will present a Poetry for Peace event in the gallery. On of the artists in the papermaking exhibition, Ben Aleshire, will also read a poem. The reading will be followed by a reception with current exhibition curators, Drew Matott and Jana Schumacher, and other local papermakers.

Exhibition: Hand Papermaking

While making paper by hand dates back to China ca. 105 C.E., the practice has only been used as a form of artistic expression in its own right for past century. Dard Hunter is considered a leading 20th-century authority on the craft of handmade paper after his publication of Old Papermaking (1923) and Papermaking by Hand in America (1950), in which he prepared every aspect of each book himself.
