The Landscape Revisited: Martin Weinstein, Jonathan Beer, Sandra Gottlieb

Opening Reception: Mon, March 3, 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. Martin Weinstein: Dahlias, 2008The landscape Revisited presents three New York artists specific vocabularies examining how memory works in images and feelings with reflection and remembering through what is real and imagined. Weinstein created images of illusion and certainty inspired by the Hudson Valley landscapes and personal relationships in painterly images made on multiple acrylic layers...as are our layered memories and perceptions. Gottlieb photographs the sea and sky from the same third floor window overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Rockaway Beach, Queens, NY. Natural, non-cropped and unaltered digital images reflect time, colors and naturally occurring textures where the water and sky form our views of the landscape. From upstate, Beer combines architectural structures with images of memory and imagination in painterly essays as new ways to view real and imagined landscapes, challenging our views of reality. This exhibit is supported by and provided in partnership with Katharine T. Carter and Associates. To learn more about the agency and the artists, visit www.ktcassoc.com

Asa Gray, Dean of American Botany

Asa Gray, Dean of American Botany Abstract: Of humble origin, Asa Gray was born on a farm in Sauquoit, New York. Through his mentor John Torrey of New York City, Asa Gray began a botanical journey that would first introduce him to the foremost American botanists and, eventually, interaction with the greatest European botanists. Gray’s interest in phytogeography and the evolution of plants would influence Charles Darwin, with whom Gray maintained frequent correspondence, and help shape Darwin’s thoughts on evolution. Gray’s impact on plant exploration, classification and the popularization of botany would make him the most important American botanist of the nineteenth century. The Asa Gray Seminar Series is sponsored by the Asa Gray Biological Society, and is the longest running seminar series at Utica College. Scientists are invited from throughout the region to present seminars on their ongoing research. All lectures are held in Donahue Auditorium, Gordon Science Center, at 4:00 p.m. An informal reception immediately follows. Call (315) 792-3028 for more information.
