SUNY Geneseo Calendar of Events for Feb. 8 - 14

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8:

LEDERER GALLERY: The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery in Brodie Hall presents "Pins and Needles: A Pointed Look at Domestic Tradition."  The two-person multi media exhibit includes embroidery work by Maggy Rozycki Hiltner and sculpture, drawings and wood block prints by Melissa Haviland. Each artist uses familiar domestic imagery-the sewing pin, the sweet "Dick and Jane" children-in unfamiliar settings to jolt the viewers into looking and thinking again. The gallery is open from noon-4 p.m. Sundays-Wednesdays and 5-8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays. The exhibit runs through Monday, Feb. 19, and is free and open to the public. For more information, go to http://lockhartgallery.geneseo.edu.

LOCKHART GALLERY:  The Lockhart Gallery, located in the McClellan House, 26 Main St., Geneseo, presents "Alumni Scene: Enid Crow (Lori Barrett '89)."  The gallery is open from noon-4 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and noon-8 p.m. Thursdays. The exhibit runs through Friday, Feb. 16, and is free and open to the public. For more information, go to http://lockhartgallery.geneseo.edu.

LEDERER GALLERY: (See Thursday, February 8).

LOCKHART GALLERY:  (See Thursday, February 8).

FILM SERIES:  "Bloody Sunday" at 3:15 p.m., Friday, Feb. 9, in 201 Newton Hall. This film depicts the events of January 30, 1972, when British paratroopers fired on a crowd of civil rights marchers in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.  Using handheld cameras and a cast of largely unknown actors, Paul Greengrass (who also directed the recent film "United 93") presents the chaotic events of the day from the perspective of the marchers and the soldiers. In the midst of a march to protest the British government's suspension of due process rights for suspected Irish Republican Army supporters, British soldiers fired on protestors, killing 13 civilians.  Although controversy surrounds the events of  "Bloody Sunday," it is universally recognized as a key date in the history of Northern Ireland. Coinciding with the 35th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, this February, six Geneseo students will present a series on the history of the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland.  These students spent the fall 2006 semester participating in a directed reading group on the Troubles, exploring firsthand accounts and scholarly works on sectarian conflict and the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland.  On Friday, February 2, the students presented a 90-minute

introduction to the history of Northern Ireland and the Troubles. Three films about the Troubles will be screened on subsequent Friday afternoons.  A short student presentation outlining the historical context will precede each film, and there will be time for discussion at the end of the sessions.
