  • Artist Lecture Series - Scott Pernicka
    Co-sponsored by Opalka Gallery and the Department of Art + Design, this second installment of the 2014-15 Artist Lecture Series at Sage College of Albany will feature glass artist Scott Pernicka and his experience of using fire as a tool in his art practice.
    Location: Opalka Gallery - Albany Campus
    Time: 7:00pm
    More Details »

    Artist Lecture Series - Scott Pernicka

    Pernicka was born in Santa Fe and grew up on a cattle ranch in northern New Mexico. During college, Pernicka enjoyed exploring the three dimensional space of sculpture and the importance of color in painting. Working in glass and combining the qualities of color and form, Scott continually discovers new creative possibilities in his art practice.

    Borosilicate glass, also known as hard glass, starts melting at a temperature of 1200 degrees. Using a torch fueled by propane and oxygen, Scott heats the clear glass to an average of 2500 degrees to form and shape it, then adds colors made from different metal oxides. This style of glass blowing known as flame or lamp working, is very intricate and quite valuable due to the extremely high temperatures required to work with the material.

    Pernicka's glass orbs, jewelry, and sculptures can be found in galleries across the United States and are held in private collections throughout the world.

  • Stinks and Bangs: Hobby Science in Gendered Spaces
    In cities, basements and attics were pressed into service as retreats for amateur scientists; in suburbs and rural areas male hobbyists insulated family members from their “stinks and bangs” by colonizing garages, sheds, barns, and even former chicken coops as recreational work spaces. Hobby workspaces for girls and women, however, were almost never intended as scientific retreats, and were integrated into the household as sewing rooms and adjuncts to the kitchen. This gender segregation of hobby science has, in many cases, persisted into the 21st century as an almost invisible obstacle to introducing girls and women to the pleasures of science.

    Stinks and Bangs: Hobby Science in Gendered Spaces

    Title of event: Stinks and Bangs: Hobby Science in Gendered Spaces

    Speaker:

    Rachel Maines, Ph.D.

    Description: 

    Hobbies in the United States and Britain co-evolved with 20th-century living spaces, especially single-family residences for the white middle class.  Scientific hobbies associated primarily with men and boys, such as photography, amateur chemistry, junior rocketry, model railroading, electronics, automobile mechanics, and carpentry tended to create domestic disamenities in the form of loud noises, penetrating and sometimes poisonous stenches, fire hazards, and ever-expanding clutters of tools, materials and projects finished and unfinished.  In cities, basements and attics were pressed into service as retreats for amateur scientists;  in suburbs and rural areas male hobbyists insulated family members from their “stinks and bangs” by colonizing garages, sheds, barns, and even former chicken coops as recreational work spaces.  Hobby workspaces for girls and women, however, were almost never intended as scientific retreats, and were integrated into the household as sewing rooms and adjuncts to the kitchen.  This gender segregation of hobby science has, in many cases, persisted into the 21st century as an almost invisible obstacle to introducing girls and women to the pleasures of science.​​

  • Artist Lecture Series - Benjamin Etner
    Co-sponsored by Opalka Gallery and the Department of Art + Design, interdisciplinary artist Benjamin Entner wraps up the first half of the 2014-15 Artist Lecture Series at Sage College of Albany.
    Location: Opalka Gallery - Albany Campus
    Time: 7:00pm

    Artist Lecture Series - Benjamin Etner

    Benjamin Entner creates works that are the result of conceptual play and material experimentation. Entner’s work actively engages a viewer to intimately react and interact through the use of humour, wonder, and large physical presence. Entner writes, “When I work, I am very conscious of my viewer and, often, I want to make my viewers conscious of themselves. I try to accomplish this by creating a presence of an object or installation that interrupts or intervenes in a viewer’s passive viewing of a piece, and forces them to actively experience it.”

    Entner’s current body of work is exploring the boundaries and interplay between two and three dimensional methods of making. Specifically, the point at which a drawing can become form and an object can become representation. These works are made with a keen awareness to art historical precedents and are often a direct reference to or parody of the figurative work of Classical and Renaissance masters.

    Benjamin's work has shown nationally and internationally; most recently with exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Center of Las Vegas, the Soap Factory of Minneapolis, the Kenneth J Minnaert Center of the Arts in Olympia, WA, as well as, SOMA Kunstgeneratorinstitusjon in Bergen, Norway, and the Handwerker Gallery of Ithaca College.
