Mona Brody: Disquiet in a Time of Uncertainty

Disquiet in a Time of Uncertainty Mona Brody, NYC and Pratt Art Institute This body of work is a response to our time of uncertainty, an unraveling sense of a reality unfamiliar to me. No longer is a silence of whispers enough to protect and create a safe haven for humanity. The innocent of the world are forced to hide, driven underground, and unauthorized to breathe. The metaphoric possibilities that result from the collection and discovery of natural objects, the physical space of the canvas, and the interaction of materials reveal the strange and uncanny place within the familiar. - Mona Brody (2017) Opening Reception: Friday, January 26, 2018, 4:00–6:00 p.m. in the Gallery
2:15 p.m (refreshments), 2:30 p.m. (talk)
NOTE: THIS EVENT IS CANCELED. Designing materials one layer at a time: Novel organosilicate systems

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. We will reschedule Professor Boucher's talk - please check back for updates. Naturally occurring silicates have in them organized lattices of silicon and oxygen linkages. These lattices have the potential to be very useful in a variety of materials applications except for the fact that they are trapped in a mineral lattice. All of the useful silicate organization is part of a rock! Chemical modification of the silicate surface yields an organosilicate system; a new material is formed with properties from both the incoming functional groups and the parent silicate lattice. These organosilicate systems can be designed to have specific properties including the ability to thicken solvents, to form nanocomposites for reinforcement of materials, and to offer further reactivity to create even more complex systems. Nexus is a seminar series presented by Utica College faculty in which they discuss their research interests and scholarly pursuits. It is an opportunity for participants to explore new findings and viewpoints and share ideas with faculty, students, and the local community. Refreshments are served at 2:15 p.m.; seminars begin at 2:30.
