New Exhibition:

    Veterans Book Project by Monica Haller

September 10 - November 12, 2015

Opening Reception: September 10, 6-8pm


The Veterans Book Project is an art collaboration consisting of fifty books, each written by artist Monica Haller and individuals with first-hand experience of the current American wars.  Most of the bookmakers are veterans, some are family members of soldiers and others are Iraqi or Afghan civilian refugees.  Haller’s aim in creating the Veterans Book Project has been to provide a means for veterans and others to articulate their memories of war experiences and to offer exhibitions of the project as quiet spaces for contemplation and thoughtful discussion about war and its impact on our lives.  Visitors to the exhibition are invited to sit and read through the books and comment on their own experiences or how war has impacted them.  Thank you to The Weeks Gallery at Jamestown Community College for the loan of the exhibition to SUNY Adirondack.

Weiss Works: Collage, Assemblage, Painting


November 19, 2015 - February 4, 2016


Professor Emeritus of English, William Weiss returns to SUNY Adirondack to present his collage works and paintings.  Inspired by writer and artist William Burroughs, Weiss began collage work back in 1984.  Weiss’s work is beautifully textural and inclusive of a variety of materials ranging from poppy seeds and oatmeal to dirt and rock salt.   “Collage physics spatialize time and render texts and visual articulations not only multiplicitous but simultaneous and instantaneous; this is often enhanced if the text or picture is self-reflexively disjunctive, as much of my work is.  That is, the work is self-conscious.  It teaches the reader/viewer how to see it.  And because it is collage, its surfaces are often varied and uneven.  Artifice is meant to be seen.”  Bill Weiss
