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

Accomplished ceramicist Regis Brodie will present sculptures and paintings in this solo show. Having spent the last 40 years as Professor of Art at Skidmore College, Brodie will present the relationship between the working artist and the educator. "I strongly believe in the power of a positive attitude and the ability to be flexible enough to respond to the creative opportunities that present themselves along the way, even when they’re headed in an opposite direction. My work is exploratory in nature and it doesn’t always go in a straight line. The true challenge is to see the many possibilities in the materials, the forming processes and the myriad effects that the firing and finishing can contribute to the energy and vitality of the piece." Regis Brodie
