    Over 2,000 years ago the Roman poet and philosopher Lucretius wrote an epic didactic poem, De rerum natura (On the Nature of Things), with the intent of explaining the laws of nature and the primary principles of Epicurean philosophy. Krause, inspired by this extraordinary poem, began wondering what was the “nature of things” in his life and how this might be expressed in painting. This series of paintings explores his experiences concerning the relationships between job, family, love/sex, mortality, pleasure, responsibilities and obligations, travel and what comes next.

    Krause is a Cincinnati native whose paintings have been included in more than 100 exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including eight solo exhibitions. The artist’s work has been purchased for numerous public and corporate collections including the Cincinnati Art Museum, Chase Manhattan Bank and Fidelity Investments, among others. Krause has been awarded numerous artist residencies including the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida; Rathausgalerie in Munich; The Cooper Union in New York; and the Chateau in Rochefort-en-Terre, France. He is a Professor of Art at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and Chair of the Department of Fine Arts.

    Most artists would like to make work that matters to them, while also sustaining their ability to live. WORK Cycle is an exhibition that explores this tension between artist and artrepreneur. Using the work of Mac Premo, the show seeks to illuminate the fine and precarious lines that an artist balances between working in the fine arts and working commercially. WORK Cycle is an exhibition that displays Premo’s wordplay and work process, while also being introspective, tongue-in-cheek, and at times–a bit of a conundrum. Overall, the show is an observation about how two worlds collide in the best possible of ways.

    Mac Premo is an American artist and stuffmaker, who graduated from RISD in 1995. He has exhibited art in NYC, LA, Miami, DC and Belfast, Northern Ireland. Premo is represented by Pavel Zoubok Gallery in NYC. He has won 7 New York Emmy® Awards, including awards for best commercial, best photography, best set design and best PSA. A 2008 NYFA fellow in video, Premo currently makes art, illustration, commercials and most nights, dinner. Premo lives in Brooklyn with his wife and totally radical daughters.

    Dust, Drought, and Dreams Gone Dry,” a national traveling exhibition about the causes and aftermath of the historic Dust Bowl period, will be on display at Booth Library from Jan. 11-Feb. 26.

    The exhibition recalls a tragic period in our history — the drought and dust storms that wreaked havoc on the Great Plains in the 1930s — and explores its environmental and cultural consequences. It raises several thought-provoking questions: What caused fertile farms to turn to dust? How did people survive? What lessons can we learn?

    If you are working on an article, a book chapter, a grant report or any other writing project, please join us for Write-On-Site, which meets every Wednesday morning from 9am to 11am in the Faculty Development Office, 1116 Booth Library (below north entrance).

    What does it mean to “write-on-site”? Kerry Ann Rockquemore coined the term to describe people coming together to work on their particular projects for up to two hours at least once a week. Writing together in one place can provide the accountability of showing up, cultivate the sense that we are part of a community of writers and help create that energy buzz that comes from being around others who are doing the same thing. Please join us! Bring your laptop to the Faculty Development Office, check in, grab a cup of tea or coffee and start working.

    Faculty Development supports your research. For further information, contact the Faculty Development Office at 581-7051.

    Keith and Ellen Wolcott completed the Race Across America (RAAM), a 3,000-mile nonstop bicycle race from coast to coast which took place in June 2014.  The racer must finish in 12 days to be an official finisher.  Keith raced as a solo rider with Ellen as his crew chief in charge of a crew of eleven.  RAAM is not a tour, but a race with time cutoffs and disqualifications for racers that do not complete 250 or more miles per day.  Keith finished in 11 days and 19 hours, averaging 256 miles per day with 4 hours of sleep per day.  There are many challenges to face just to get to the starting line: physical training, crew training, learning about sleep strategy and food strategy, handling saddle sores, and forming an overall plan for how the crew and racer can all get enough sleep.  For the race itself we had to overcome the desert, the mountains, and rain, fog, and wind.  We will talk about the challenges that we faced and overcame, including recovery after the race.

    Dust Bowl Ballads: Woody Guthrie and the Politics of the Working Class

    Wednesday, Feb. 10, 4 p.m., Doudna Fine Arts Center Lecture Hall
    Presented by J.B. Faires, adjunct professor of music

    Often hailed as the most important voice from the grass roots of America, Woody Guthrie was a dynamic, articulate spokesperson from the Dust Bowl community who was able to verbalize contemporary issues in the vernacular of the “folk.” This presentation that includes live music will focus on Guthrie’s search for the “American Dream” upon his arrival in Southern California in the late 1930s, as well as the radicalization of his political ideology and his songs addressing the treatment of Dust Bowl migrants. The greatest success of his Dust Bowl Ballads album was to portray his subjects in humanistic terms even while making an economic or political point, causing the general public to question whether the American capitalist system was serving the interests of the working poor.
