“Art in the Afternoon” to feature documentary about cats in Turkey called “Kedi”

Join the ABEC and Art History programs as they host an enlightening documentary about stray cats and their human companions. “Kedi” was distributed worldwide in 2016 and celebrates the relationship between human and cat as one that respects the wildness of the cat and the other is content to accept the care offered to them by those who share their domain in Istanbul, Turkey.

The film is shown as part of “Art in the Afternoon,” a series of art-historically themed documentaries and will begin at 1:00 PM in Regis Room on Tuesday, March 12, 2019. It is part of the coursework for FAH272 Animals in Art, and this screening is free and open to the public. N.B. The film is in Turkish and will have English subtitles.

NEW! Important Registration Change for Summer and Fall!

Effective for the Summer & Fall 2019 registration period, your new Student Profile should be utilized to view your grades, view your advisor’s contact information, look up classes, prepare registration plans (ahead of your registration date!), and register for classes. The Student Profile also provides you with a user and mobile friendly view of the biographical and academic information that is on your student record, such as your major declaration. We will continue to support the previous registration process for this registration cycle only, but encourage you to familiarize yourself with the new process prior to the start of registration.

The Student Profile and the Learn about Student Profile training documentation are located under the My Campus heading on the right-hand side of the MyCanisius portal. Registration dates are available on the academic calendar, or in the advisement guide, which is located on the portal under the Schedule and Registration Heading.

By building registration plans ahead of time, you are able to discuss them with your advisor, and registering from a plan is much quicker than our current process! In addition, you can create multiple plans in order to have backup options quickly available to you. Don’t wait – take advantage of the Plan Ahead functionality, and start planning your summer and fall schedules now!

Questions regarding the Student Profile or the new registration process, can be directed to the Student Records & Financial Services Center at 888-2990, or via email at studentservices@canisius.edu. You can also stop by our office for assistance. We are located in Bagen Hall, room 106, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily (7:00 am to 5:00pm on Registration Tuesdays).

FAH Art Show/Fundraiser is Looking for Artworks by Students

The Art History program is accepting artworks to be displayed as part of a silent auction to raise funds for arts organizations. Please consider submitting an artwork in any media for the 2nd Annual Art Show Fundraiser to be held on April 10, 2019, 5-7 PM in the Science Hall Commons.

This year, clients at Baker Victory Services will participate and offer handmade note cards, jewelry, and gourmet spice rubs.

Submissions can be dropped off in LY 306 by no later than April 1, 2019, and if you have any questions, please contact Professor Yvonne Widenor at widenory@canisius.edu

Makerspace needs your help!

A future Makerspace event is asking students, staff, and faculty to donate clean plastic lids so that we can create an artwork inspired by the work of Mary Ellen Croteau. She creates large scale landscapes and portraits using plastic lids, and the results are spectacular. There are two donation boxes on campus- one in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library (where we plan to work of the project and display it) and one outside LY 306.

Any plastic lids are most welcome – from water bottles, laundry containers, anything! Examples of Croteau’s inspiring work can be seen on her website at www.maryellencroteau.net

Please contact Professor Yvonne Widenor at widenory@canisius.edu if you have any questions or concerns or ideas for an image. We plan to create the work next year as part of the College’s Sesquicentennial celebration.Croteau box.jpg

De-stress Through Meditation and Mindfulness

Do you feel stressed and a little overwhelmed at times?  Does “life” get to you now and then?  It’s really possible to manage these things and find peace of heart in the midst of busyness and work.  I’d like to offer you a moment once a week for about 1/2 hour to come together and practice mindfulness and do some meditation which can help quiet your life and get your worries to behave.  How to do this is really quite simple and you might find it a great help.

If you’re interested, please contact Sr. Pat and we can arrange a day and time for this.  I hope it wouldn’t be a problem that it would have to be between 8:30am and 4:30pm.  My contact information is:

bradyp@canisius.edu

Wishing you a peaceful heart!  Sr Pat
