New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s. Of note is an ad campaign of the late 1950s in which Bob Hope, Art Linkletter, and John Cameron Swaze happily endorsed Perry's "asymmetric floral" look in Flower Lane, Silver Rose, and Young Love. Perry’s daughter, Maria Skinner (Simply Designed Spaces), installed the exhibit curated by Tony Wonderley. Don Cornue (Sign & Art, Etc.) designed the text panels for the exhibit which will be up through June, 2014. The Oneida Community Mansion House was home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, and banquet and meeting space. The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY. For information, call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org.

Hamilton College to Screen Feeding Frenzy

Hamilton College Days-Massolo Center Living Room

Hamilton College will host a screening of the film "Feeding Frenzy." The event is part of the Health[Care] Programming Film Series sponsored by the Days-Massolo Center, and is free and open to the public. Over the past three decades, obesity rates in the U.S. have more than doubled for children and tripled for adolescents – and a startling 70% of adults are now obese or overweight. The result has been a widening epidemic of obesity-related health problems, including coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and Type 2 diabetes. While discussions about this spiraling health crisis have tended to focus on the need for more exercise and individual responsibility, "Feeding Frenzy" trains its focus squarely on the responsibility of the processed food industry and the outmoded government policies it benefits from.

Utica College's Nexus Series Presents: Development of a screening tool for overhead collegiate athletes who are at risk of shoulde

Willard Conference Room in DePerno Hall at Utica College

David Schilling, Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy, and Ashraf Elazzazi, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy, will explain how shoulder injuries such as tendon inflammation, shoulder instability, and cartilage tears are common in collegiate overhead athletes. Currently there is no comprehensive, reliable, and valid established screening tool for predicting those at risk of injury in this population. As part of their research, Professors Schilling and Elazzazi are developing a screening tool that aims to identify impairments of overhead athletes that may be associated with increased future risk of injury. This knowledge will allow healthcare practitioners to devise evaluative and therapeutic procedures that may help in the prevention of shoulder injuries among collegiate athletes.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s. Of note is an ad campaign of the late 1950s in which Bob Hope, Art Linkletter, and John Cameron Swaze happily endorsed Perry's "asymmetric floral" look in Flower Lane, Silver Rose, and Young Love. Perry’s daughter, Maria Skinner (Simply Designed Spaces), installed the exhibit curated by Tony Wonderley. Don Cornue (Sign & Art, Etc.) designed the text panels for the exhibit which will be up through June, 2014. The Oneida Community Mansion House was home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, and banquet and meeting space. The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY. For information, call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961.

Utica College's Asa Gray Series Presents: Asa Gray, Dean of American Botany

Donahue Auditorium, Utica College

David L. Moore, Ph.D., Asa Gray Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Biology at Utica College, will describe how 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.

New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s. Of note is an ad campaign of the late 1950s in which Bob Hope, Art Linkletter, and John Cameron Swaze happily endorsed Perry's "asymmetric floral" look in Flower Lane, Silver Rose, and Young Love. Perry’s daughter, Maria Skinner (Simply Designed Spaces), installed the exhibit curated by Tony Wonderley. Don Cornue (Sign & Art, Etc.) designed the text panels for the exhibit which will be up through June, 2014. The Oneida Community Mansion House was home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, and banquet and meeting space.

Chemical Heritage Foundation Director to Lecture at Hamilton College

Hamilton College - Red Pit (room 127) in the Kirner-Johnson Building

“Sensing Change: How Art and Science Work to Communicate Environmental Change” by Jody Roberts, director of the Center for Contemporary History and Policy at the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) in Philadelphia. Roberts’ work explores the intersections of emerging molecular sciences and public policy and the ways in which tensions brought about between the two get resolved. He received advanced degrees in science and technology studies from Virginia Tech, where he cultivated an interest in the practice of the molecular sciences and the ways in which they are shaped by internal architecture and design (e.g., technologies of the laboratory) and the politics of the broader world (e.g., chemical regulations). Those interests became the basis for the projects that formed CHF’s Environmental History and Policy Program, which explores social, technical, and policy innovations for governing molecules. The lecture is sponsored by the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center.

New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

Bridgeland's 7th Annual Nature Fest

Bridgeland's Oak Meadow Park, 11730 House Hahl Rd., Cypress TX 77433

Wild things of all ages will flock to Bridgeland Saturday, April 26, for Nature Fest, an annual event that showcases a lively menagerie of creatures, characters and cuisines. This year’s gathering could go down in history as the crowd will attempt to break the world record for the most people giving a simultaneous bird call. This year, Houston Chronicle nature columnist and noted bird watcher Gary Clark will return to teach attendees how to call the northern cardinal, a bird common in the Houston area and known for its vigorous song and the male’s vibrant red feathers. To break the record, at least 802 people need to make the cardinal’s call for 10 seconds or more. This year, Houston Chronicle nature columnist and noted bird watcher Gary Clark will return to teach attendees how to call the northern cardinal, a bird common in the Houston area and known for its vigorous song and the male’s vibrant red feathers. To break the record, at least 802 people need to make the cardinal’s call for 10 seconds or more. “The northern cardinal’s song is beautiful and easy to learn,” Clark said. “It starts with ‘cherry, cherry, cherry,’ and is simple to mimic.” In addition to the record attempt, Staples Safari Zoo will return with its unique troop of rescued lemurs, kangaroos, movie-star monkeys and other exotic animals. A Siberian fox and a young lion, both featured on the Today Show and Fox & Friends earlier in the year, also will be in attendance. Another spectacle, Crocodile Encounter, will perform its interactive reptile show and showcase a variety of native creatures. New this year is Austin Bike Zoo, an assembly that combines puppetry and mechanics to create pedal-powered animal art. The cycling clan will showcase two of its butterfly bikes, one of which comes in at 15 feet tall, making it the ‘monarch’ of the duo. With pony and camel rides, a petting zoo, bubble runners, bounce houses, arts and crafts and a pack of gourmet food trucks, there will be plenty of ways to monkey around. While some activities are free, others require a small donation that will benefit the non-profit Staples Safari Zoo and Habitat for Humanity Northwest County (NWHC), a non-profit organization that builds affordable housing for families in need within northwest Harris County.

Bridgeland's 7th Annual Nature Fest

Oak Meadow Park, 17730 House Hahl Rd., Cypress TX 77433

BRIDGELAND’S NATURE FEST TAKES CROWDS ON A SUBURBAN SAFARI APRIL 26 Seventh Annual Event Features Attempt to Break World Record CYPRESS, TX (February 7, 2014) - Wild things of all ages will flock to Bridgeland Saturday, April 26, for Nature Fest, an annual event that showcases a lively menagerie of creatures, characters and cuisines. Held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the community’s Oak Meadow Park, 17730 House Hahl Road, this year’s gathering could go down in history as the crowd will attempt to break the world record for the most people giving a simultaneous bird call. Approximately 10,000 guests gathered to achieve this tweet feat at last year’s event, but Mother Nature intervened and cut the attempt short after an unexpected downpour. This year, Houston Chronicle nature columnist and noted bird watcher Gary Clark will return to teach attendees how to call the northern cardinal, a bird common in the Houston area and known for its vigorous song and the male’s vibrant red feathers. To break the record, at least 802 people need to make the cardinal’s call for 10 seconds or more. “The northern cardinal’s song is beautiful and easy to learn,” Clark said. “It starts with ‘cherry, cherry, cherry,’ and is simple to mimic.” In addition to the record attempt, Staples Safari Zoo will return with its unique troop of rescued lemurs, kangaroos, movie-star monkeys and other exotic animals. A Siberian fox and a young lion, both featured on the Today Show and Fox & Friends earlier in the year, also will be in attendance. Another spectacle, Crocodile Encounter, will perform its interactive reptile show and showcase a variety of native creatures. “More than just fun, Nature Fest also gives rescued animals a voice and teaches the community to appreciate the natural world,” said Brian Staples, owner of Staples Safari Zoo, a group that has performed at the event twice before. “We are happy to return to such an event that has proved so popular in the Houston area.” New this year is Austin Bike Zoo, an assembly that combines puppetry and mechanics to create pedal-powered animal art. The cycling clan will showcase two of its butterfly bikes, one of which comes in at 15 feet tall, making it the ‘monarch’ of the duo. With pony and camel rides, a petting zoo, bubble runners, bounce houses, arts and crafts and a pack of gourmet food trucks, there will be plenty of ways to monkey around. While some activities are free, others require a small donation that will benefit the non-profit Staples Safari Zoo and Habitat for Humanity Northwest County (NWHC), a non-profit organization that builds affordable housing for families in need within northwest Harris County. “We’re thrilled to host Nature Fest for the seventh year,” said Peter Houghton, Bridgeland’s vice president of master planned communities. “With the entertainment we’ve lined up, attendees are in for a fun-filled day.” Keep up-to-date on news of Nature Fest and other Bridgeland activities on Facebook, http://www.facebook.com/Bridgelandcommunity, Twitter, http://twitter.com/BridgelandTX and Instagram, http://www.instagram.com/Bridgelandbalance.

Set in 1953, Neil Simon's "flat-out funniest play in years" (Dennis Cunningham, CBS- TV) re-creates the mayhem, neuroses, nonstop gags, and constant one-upmanship of a brilliantly funny, social misfit team of writers for The Max Prince Show, a weekly variety program. The writers, along with their boss Max (a comic genius, paranoiac with a heart of gold), are under the pressures of a rising McCarthyism, network executives, and sponsors who want to cut back the "too-smart" show and staff to chase after the Leave It to Beaver and Father Knows Best audience.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

Hamilton College’s Wellin Museum Presents “In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice”

Hamilton College - Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art

“In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice” brings together the work of 13 conceptual artists whose practices address an underlying sociopolitical agenda as well as photojournalists and social documentarians who utilize conceptual strategies to subjectively shape the portraits they create. The convergence of these approaches yields work that carefully balances aesthetic and political goals to frame important social issues in a contemporary manner. The show, which is open until July 27, is curated by Assistant Professor of Photography Robert Knight. Featured photographers include Magali Corouge, Chris de Bode, Laura El-Tantawy, Ulrich Gebert, Jim Goldberg, Mishka Henner, Tom Hunter, Alfredo Jaar, Sharon Lockhart, Taryn Simon, Alec Soth, and Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s. Of note is an ad campaign of the late 1950s in which Bob Hope, Art Linkletter, and John Cameron Swaze happily endorsed Perry's "asymmetric floral" look in Flower Lane, Silver Rose, and Young Love. Perry’s daughter, Maria Skinner (Simply Designed Spaces), installed the exhibit curated by Tony Wonderley. Don Cornue (Sign & Art, Etc.) designed the text panels for the exhibit which will be up through June, 2014. The Oneida Community Mansion House was home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, and banquet and meeting space. The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY. For information, call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org.

New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s. Of note is an ad campaign of the late 1950s in which Bob Hope, Art Linkletter, and John Cameron Swaze happily endorsed Perry's "asymmetric floral" look in Flower Lane, Silver Rose, and Young Love. Perry’s daughter, Maria Skinner (Simply Designed Spaces), installed the exhibit curated by Tony Wonderley. Don Cornue (Sign & Art, Etc.) designed the text panels for the exhibit which will be up through June, 2014. The Oneida Community Mansion House was home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, and banquet and meeting space. The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY. For information, call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org.

The importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Utica, New York

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People A comedy realm located somewhere between Downton Abbey and Seinfeld.. . Oscar Wilde set out distinctly to write a comedy about nothing, and he has succeeded with flare and wit. It’s philosophy? According to Wilde, “That we should treat all the trivial things of life very seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality”. At once a commentary on social norms, an exercise in high farce, and rip roaring good time, the play is a brilliant Wildean lecture on The Importance of Being Earnest.

The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s. Of note is an ad campaign of the late 1950s in which Bob Hope, Art Linkletter, and John Cameron Swaze happily endorsed Perry's "asymmetric floral" look in Flower Lane, Silver Rose, and Young Love. Perry’s daughter, Maria Skinner (Simply Designed Spaces), installed the exhibit curated by Tony Wonderley. Don Cornue (Sign & Art, Etc.) designed the text panels for the exhibit which will be up through June, 2014. The Oneida Community Mansion House was home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, and banquet and meeting space. The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY. For information, call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org.

The importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Utica, New York

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People A comedy realm located somewhere between Downton Abbey and Seinfeld.. . Oscar Wilde set out distinctly to write a comedy about nothing, and he has succeeded with flare and wit. It’s philosophy? According to Wilde, “That we should treat all the trivial things of life very seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality”. At once a commentary on social norms, an exercise in high farce, and rip roaring good time, the play is a brilliant Wildean lecture on The Importance of Being Earnest.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

Hamilton College’s Wellin Museum Presents “In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice”

Hamilton College - Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art

“In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice” brings together the work of 13 conceptual artists whose practices address an underlying sociopolitical agenda as well as photojournalists and social documentarians who utilize conceptual strategies to subjectively shape the portraits they create. The convergence of these approaches yields work that carefully balances aesthetic and political goals to frame important social issues in a contemporary manner. The show, which is open until July 27, is curated by Assistant Professor of Photography Robert Knight. Featured photographers include Magali Corouge, Chris de Bode, Laura El-Tantawy, Ulrich Gebert, Jim Goldberg, Mishka Henner, Tom Hunter, Alfredo Jaar, Sharon Lockhart, Taryn Simon, Alec Soth, and Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s.

New Exhibition - Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama

Longyear Museum of Anthropology, Colgate University, Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama. Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life. Museum Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment.

"Here One Day" Documentary Showing

SUNYIT Student Center

Early one February morning, after a decades-long struggle with Bipolar Disorder, Nina Leichter, a sixty-three year old mother of two, completed suicide by jumping out of a window. Being the wife of a New York State Senator, her death was reported on the radio, in newspapers, and on television. HERE ONE DAY picks up where the mainstream press left off. Shot by the winner of last year’s Excellence in Cinematography Award at The Sundance Film Festival, this un-sensationalized, beautiful film paints a captivating, intimate portrait of those left behind. Told from the point of view of Nina’s daughter, Director Kathy Leichter, and featuring Nina’s husband, son, sister, and grandchildren, HERE ONE DAY follows this family from 2004 to 2008 as they attempt to make sense of what happened and go on with their lives. Watch as the film reveals the universal emotions of guilt, blame, rage, despair, humor and affection that the family experiences. Some family members think they have moved on but haven’t. Some want to move on but can’t. Some, like Nina’s grandchildren, don’t even know the full story. To tell them or not becomes a storyline, as does the role of family secrets, and how people live with loss in very different ways. By film’s end, the family, who goes through struggles, conflicts and resolutions on-screen, is less broken, less traumatized, but still scarred and forever changed. While HERE ONE DAY is about mental illness and suicide, all too common experiences that remain alarmingly taboo and dreadfully need more public discussion, it is also about holding on and letting go, the ever-changing parent/child relationship, and how our emotional experiences, not just our biology, get passed down from one generation to the next. Join the director of this amazing documentary, Kathy Leichter, CFLR, Inc. and the Oneida County Suicide Prevention Coalition as we watch the film and talk with Kathy Leichter herself, in celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month. This is a free event!

Hamilton College’s Wellin Museum Presents “In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice”

Hamilton College - Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art

“In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice” brings together the work of 13 conceptual artists whose practices address an underlying sociopolitical agenda as well as photojournalists and social documentarians who utilize conceptual strategies to subjectively shape the portraits they create. The convergence of these approaches yields work that carefully balances aesthetic and political goals to frame important social issues in a contemporary manner. The show, which is open until July 27, is curated by Assistant Professor of Photography Robert Knight. Featured photographers include Magali Corouge, Chris de Bode, Laura El-Tantawy, Ulrich Gebert, Jim Goldberg, Mishka Henner, Tom Hunter, Alfredo Jaar, Sharon Lockhart, Taryn Simon, Alec Soth, and Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Mondays and college holidays.

South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s

Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421

The exhibit, “South Seas to Botticelli: Frank Perry Flatware Designs for Oneida, 1950s-1970s” at the Oneida Community Mansion House, pays tribute to Frank Perry, the creator of more than 100 silverware patterns at Oneida Ltd. ranging from the archetypal Colonial design, Paul Revere, to classic Baroque offerings such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. Highlighted is the importance of Paul Revere (1958), an elegant, simple style which powered Oneida's successful changeover to stainless steel. The display also stresses the impact of South Seas (1954), a pattern so popular it rejuvenated the company's traditional line of sliver-plated ware. Visitors can examine several original design drawings and heft examples of Perry-designed flatware in plate, sterling, and stainless. The exhibit includes magazine advertising that promoted Perry's South Seas in the mid-1950s and First Frost in the mid-1960s. Of note is an ad campaign of the late 1950s in which Bob Hope, Art Linkletter, and John Cameron Swaze happily endorsed Perry's "asymmetric floral" look in Flower Lane, Silver Rose, and Young Love. Perry’s daughter, Maria Skinner (Simply Designed Spaces), installed the exhibit curated by Tony Wonderley. Don Cornue (Sign & Art, Etc.) designed the text panels for the exhibit which will be up through June, 2014. The Oneida Community Mansion House was home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, and banquet and meeting space. The Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY. For information, call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org.
