    A Day's Work: Rebekah Modrak and Nick Tobier, March 1- April 1, 2017

    Closing Reception April 1, 6-8pm

    Rebekah Modrak (Class of '92) and Nick Tobier present 'A Day's Work' at the Cohen Gallery, March 1-April 1, 2017


    The joint show features distinct but related bodies of work that serve to challenge viewers' social expectations. 'A Day's Work' opens March 1, with a closing reception on April 1.

    Rebekah's installation, Re Made Co., is a multimedia artistic intervention satirizing the brand narrative of Best Made Co., a New York City-based company that sells painted axes and a range of 'outdoor' consumer products using calculated and false associations with manual labor. Evolving since its launch in July 2013, Re Made Co. works across genres, including Fluxus art whose distribution channels circumvent and subvert the gallery system; critical design that challenges the values of design practice; and activist art or 'culture jamming' that attempts to introduce a critical discourse into passive consumption. Re Made Co. at Cohen Gallery will create a storefront space on Main Street in Alfred with both the products and the critique of luxury consumer culture that seeks to appropriate the work of labor.

    Nick will conduct performances in the gallery and community during the month of March. He will present, 'Marvelous Guests,' which lends new working conditions and meanings to several trades by inviting professionals to conduct their business in unusual locations. As a guest. Each encounter will produce its own forms of communication on location.

    Both artists taught at the School of Art Design at Alfred University before joining the faculty at the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where they currently live and work.

    Event to be held Thursday, March 30th at 5:00 pm in Holmes Auditorium.

    On Thursday, March 30th, at 5:00pm in Holmes Auditorium the Institute for Electronic Arts will host a panel discussion with printmaker Scott Stephens, new media artist Elisabeth Pellathy, and sculptor Lee Somers on their collaborative project, the Cahaba River Watershed Project.

    The Cahaba River Watershed Project is an investigation of the natural environment and how it has shaped and is shaped by human activity. The Cahaba River is a 200-mile free flowing river with some of the greatest biodiversity and scenic beauty in the South. It rises near Birmingham and flows southwest to the Alabama River just south of Selma. As it passes through Montevallo's Shelby County it is fed by the Little Cahaba watershed that rises in Ebenezer Swamp, an ecological preserve and research center of the University of Montevallo.

    The three themes of interest around the Cahaba River are the natural environment, the human history, from Civil War to Civil Rights, and its ecological and geological features, containing natural resources that are used for economic activity, especially the coal, limestone and iron ore mining that was the foundation of the early iron industry in the area.

    Once again, the Writing Center is sponsoring a Pizza and Pedagogy lunchtime discussion on how to help your students become better writers when writing is not the main point of your class. The topic for this year is building on writing skills taught in our first year writing classes. The majority of our students take Writing I and/or II in their first year. So by the time they get to their upper division classes, their writing should be perfect, right? Not so much. Apart from the fact that writing is a skill that takes time to develop, students often don’t transfer the skills they’ve learned in their introductory writing class(es) to their other classes. There obviously isn’t time to completely reteach writing in every class, but possibly we can encourage transfer of skills by explicitly making connections to what the students have already learned. To start off the discussion, Allen Grove will provide an overview of skills taught in Writing I and II and Mary McInnes will talk about ways she explicitly builds on those skills in art history classes without sacrificing content. Come share your ideas and successes with fellow faculty or just listen. Pizza will be served. RSVP to Vicky Westacott, fcobb@alfred.edu (so I know how much pizza to order).

    Rebekah Modrak (Class of '92) and Nick Tobier present "A Day's Work" at the Cohen Gallery, March 1-April 1, 2017. The joint show features distinct but related bodies of work that serve to challenge viewers' social expectations. "A Day's Work" opens March 1, 6-8pm, with a closing reception on April 1 at 6-8pm.

    Rebekah's installation, Re Made Co., is a multimedia artistic intervention satirizing the brand narrative of Best Made Co., a New York City-based company that sells painted axes and a range of "outdoor" consumer products using calculated and false associations with manual labor. Evolving since its launch in July 2013, Re Made Co. works across genres, including Fluxus art whose distribution channels circumvent and subvert the gallery system; critical design that challenges the values of design practice; and activist art or "culture jamming" that attempts to introduce a critical discourse into passive consumption.

    Re Made Co. at Cohen Gallery will create a storefront space on Main Street in Alfred with both the products and the critique of luxury consumer culture that seeks to appropriate the work of labor.
    Nick will conduct performances in the gallery and in the community during the month of March. He will present, "Marvelous Guests," which lends new working conditions and meanings to several trades by inviting professionals to conduct their business in unusual locations. As a guest. Each encounter will produce its own forms of communication on location. We see the relationship between guest and host as dynamic, and not without friction as each adjusts to the other.
