WNY Artists Small Works Exhibit

craig_larotonda_baghdad_diaryJoin the Fine Arts Department for an opening reception in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library on Friday, February 3, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. for the Small Works Exhibit.

The paintings, prints, photographs, drawings and constructions in this exhibition, drawn from the extensive collection of Gerald Mead, well-known collector in Buffalo, are each smaller than seven inches. Due to their size, they become more intimate works of art that encourage inspection of their complexity and detail.

Gerald Mead is an award-winning artist, educator, writer and leading authority on Western New York art. He is currently an independent curator and serves on the boards of several arts organizations in Buffalo.

Mead also lent works from his collection to major exhibitions at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Castellani Art Museum, UB Art Galleries, Buffalo Arts Studio, the CEPA Contemporary Photography and Visual Arts Center, and Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center.

Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges

Each fall semester, the college is given the opportunity to nominate a number of talented junior and senior students for inclusion in the publication Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.

The selection committee invites faculty and staff to actively participate in the nomination of juniors and seniors for this honor.  In order to obtain the broadest base of nominees, junior and senior Canisius students have been invited to submit their own names in nomination this year.  The selection committee is still hopeful that most faculty members and administrators will take the time to nominate students they feel are deserving of this honor.  Reconsideration of students not selected last year but highly recommended is appropriate.

In choosing nominees, please bear in mind the three criteria, which will serve as a guide to the selection committee:

  1. Academic achievement as demonstrated by the maintenance of at least a 3.0(B) grade point average.
  2. Significant participation in at least one extra-curricular activity on campus and one off campus, or two on campus activities if nothing off campus.
  3. Evidence of exemplary character and leadership qualities.

Students are eligible to self-nominate also.  Please include as much detail as possible in the nomination.  It is highly encouraged to attach a copy of the student’s resume to the attached applicationThe deadline for nominations is February 1, 2017.  Applications are to be brought to the Office of Student Life, in the lower level of Dugan Hall.

Attached is the application as well as a list of students who are currently members of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.

In this VR play session we will experience educational applications of VR that include a brief history of flight, exploration of anatomy within a human body, a journey to the moon on board the Apollo 11 spacecraft, an autism simulator and others.
