Exhibition: The Fez as Storyteller @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Sep 21 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Artist: Camille Eskell
Exhibition dates: September 6 through October 5, 2017

This timely exhibition reminds us of the traditions, challenges, and celebrations of America’s vast multicultural heritage. Eskell’s work makes use of the Middle Eastern head piece know as a Fez. With this traditional item of clothing as a backdrop she explores her multi-racial and multicultural heritage to question “attitudes, conventions, and the indoctrination of religious and social systems perpetuated over the generations.”

The artist uses a variety of found, manufactured, and personal objects to tell the story of her family legacy; one which most Americans can relate to because those of us not of Native American extraction were all immigrants. These complex and labor intensive works are very much mixed media, and include beadwork, digital images, fabric and more.  This work links the traditions of the hand-made with 21st century digital image construction.

For more information call Lori Houtz at 245-5841.

Genesee Valley Hunt Parade and Opening of the Hunt @ The Wadsworth Homestead and Main Street
Sep 23 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

GVHThe Opening Meet marks the beginning of the formal foxhunting season. Hounds, staff and subscribers traditionally ride up Geneseo’s Main Street at 7:30 AM from the Wadsworth Homestead to the Hartford House at the north end, and off into the countryside from there. The sight of so many riders of all ages and sound of so many hooves on the pavement are stirring. (Valley Horses by Sally Fox, Livingston County News, September 18, 2014)

This is the 141st season of the Genesee Valley Hunt.

Stories of the College: How the Normal School Came to Geneseo @ Milne Library Room 105 at SUNY Geneseo
Sep 23 @ 10:00 am

Wayne Mahood, Professor Emeritus

Wayne Mahood, Professor Emeritus and author of SUNY Geneseo: From Normal School to Public Ivy, will present a brief talk supplemented by original research from SUNY students.

SUNY Geneseo graduated its first Normal School class nearly 150 years ago.  However, prior to that key element in the story of the College, the Town and Village of Geneseo had to secure agreement from New York State to place a Normal School here.  The story of how the community won that designation in 1867 will be the focus of this event.

The involvement of students from the Shear School of Education was designed to interest future Social Science teachers in the history of the local community and prepare them to use primary source materials in their own classrooms in the future.  They were members of the 2016-2017 classes of Dr. Crystal Simmons.

This program is part of Homecoming and Family Weekend, and is free and open to the public.  A brief reception follows the presentation.

Co-sponsored by SUNY Geneseo Shear School of Education and the Association for the Preservation of Geneseo (APOG)
