Opening reception for artist Sheilah Wilson

The opening reception for photographer, videographer, and performance artist Sheilah Wilson will be held in the Herndon Gallery in South Hall on Thursday, August 30. The exhibition is titled If Becoming This and will run through November 16. The exhibition will include both photography and video. The reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. with an artist’s presentation at 7:30 p.m. “My work is consistently drawn to the romantic and absurd ideal of the body acting as a translation machine of experience and story,—Wilson said. “I believe in the potential of the personal voice, and the body itself, to act as diversionary forces. I use photography, video, and text as performative and documentary tools for my various attempts to pick through the seams of narrative and image.” Wilson is an assistant professor of photography and new media at Denison College in Granville, Ohio. Wilson has been the recipient of numerous awards in the U.S. and Canada, and shows her work both nationally and internationally. Visit her website at www.sheilahwilson.com.

Annie Reichert ’06: Sustainability at Sterling College

On Tuesday, August 28, at 7:30 p.m. in McGregor 113, Annie Reichert ’06 will speak about her experience attending Vermont’s Table, an intensive five-week course in sustainable food production at Sterling College in Craftsbury Commons, Vermont. (Notable for the Antioch community, Matthew Derr, interim president of Antioch College from 2009 to 2011, will serve as Sterling College’s next president.) Reichert has been developing an interest in food production and experience in a small business operation while living in New York City for the past few years. While at Sterling College, she is learning about the economics of farming practices and how to work with draft horses, and make cheeses and bread. Sterling College produces most of their food, or sources it locally as much as possible, and teaches the use of farming with draft horses, among other things. Sustainability is a very high goal, and Reichert reports that the students are very hard workers.
