LOCKHART GALLERY: The Lockhart Gallery, located in the McClellan House, 26 Main St., Geneseo, presents "The Art of Science." This exhibition of contemporary artists reveals the art (sometimes in its aesthetic beauty, sometimes in its awe-inspiring power) that is found in science. The exhibit includes the work of nationally and internationally recognized local artists: Doug Anderson and Dan DeZarn, faculty in Geneseo's School of the Arts, and Andrew Davidhazy and Michael Peres, faculty of photographic science at Rochester Institute of Technology.  Also on view from the gallery's permanent collection are Jane Jeffrey's scientific watercolor illustrations of insects. The gallery is open noon-4 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and noon-8 p.m. Thursdays.  The exhibit runs through Thursday, Dec. 14.  This exhibit is in conjunction with the dedication of the Integrated Science Center.

FILM: "Games of Love and Chance," a 2003 film produced in France with a running time of 123 minutes. It will be screened at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, in 204 Newton Hall. The film is a graceful and frank coming-of-age story about teenage love in a Muslim neighborhood on the outskirts of Paris. When Krimo, a tough-minded but introverted 15-year-old, falls in love with Lydia, he schemes up to be cast as Lydia's romantic opposite in their school's staging of Marivaux's "The Game of Love and Chance," with bittersweet results. Winner of four Cˇsar Awards. In French with English subtitles. Discussant: Anne Lutkus (Department of Modern Languages and Cultures, University of Rochester).
