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

Lessons From Four-Legged Patients: What Mouse Models Can Tell Us About Human Genetic Diseases

Lessons From Four-Legged Patients: What Mouse Models Can Tell Us About Human Genetic Diseases Abstract: Mouse models can be used to test whether the loss of function of a specific gene results in disease. Using a knockout mouse model, we discovered that the loss of a cytoskeletal protein, myosin 1e (myo1e), leads to kidney disease in mice, which led us to predict that mutations in the MYO1E gene in humans may cause familial kidney disorders. As predicted, several families with mutations in MYO1E and associated kidney disease have been identified in clinical genetic studies. Mutations in the human MYO1E gene disrupt domains important for Myo1e functions in cells, leading to defects in protein filtration and subsequent kidney failure. Our lab is investigating the role of myo1e in the assembly and maintenance of the renal filtration barrier and the effects that disease-associated mutations have on myo1e activity. 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.
