    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?

    Recapturing the Experiences of Women in the Dust Bowl:
    The Life and Writings of Caroline Henderson

    Tuesday, Feb. 16, 4:30 p.m., Witters Conference Room 4440, Booth Library
    Presented by Bonnie Laughlin-Schultz, assistant professor of history

    Caroline Boa Henderson (1877-1966) lived an extraordinary life. Able to access higher education in an era where women had limited access, she graduated from Mount Holyoke in 1901 and embarked upon a career as a teacher. After teaching in Iowa, she moved to western Oklahoma and began a second career as a farmer.

    In the course of this, her life become quite ordinary for 1930s-era Westerners: she endured the Great Depression and carried on against the backdrop of the Dust Bowl. At the same time, she pursued an M.A. in English at the University of Kansas. Her writings and correspondence are housed at Mount Holyoke College Archives and Special Collections, and they offer a window into her extraordinary life as well as into the day-to-day experience of women during the Dust Bowl.

    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.

    "The news and political rhetoric are filled with the term, "fracking," these days.  There are two camps, one touting the huge financial benefits, less reliance on foreign fuels and putting America back to work.  The other camp heartily condemns the process, citing massive environmental devastation and the poisoning of our water supplies.  This class will explore both sides of the process in hopes of enlightening folks to come to their own, educated conclusions."

    The Politics of Drought in 'The Grapes of Wrath'

    Wednesday, Feb. 17, 4 p.m., Witters Conference Room 4440, Booth Library
    Presented by Robin Murray, professor of English

    Drought serves as the protagonist in John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath and its John Ford film adaptation of 1940. But the film and novel also draw on environmental history and environmental law and highlight America’s conflicting views of water rights, views almost always grounded in the 19th-century American drive for progress. Water rights in America respond to at least three political, historical and economic perspectives, all of which have addressed water distribution during times of both drought and abundance of water. The first of these, the riparian doctrine, connects water with the land adjacent to it, so that “Riparian land owners can access water for a ‘reasonable use,’ so long as downstream users are not adversely affected” (Zachary Donohew, “Property Rights and Western United States Water Markets,” 90). A second approach, the appropriative doctrine, grounds legislation that opened up the West to pioneers with the Desert Land Act (1877), the General Mining Act (1872) and the Homestead Act (1862), which rested on the doctrine of prior appropriation: “Water rights with older priority dates are more likely to receive their full allocation and hence are more valuable” (Donohew 89). A third perspective focuses on groundwater rights, which are more difficult to define and measure, so specifications differ from state to state. The Grapes of Wrath illustrates the ongoing power of this environmental legal context.
