All Day Diwali
Hindu, Jain, Sikh, & Buddhist holyday: Diwali (the Festival of Lights) is the biggest festival in India. An ancient harvest festival, Diwali is a 4-day celebration for Hindus of the triumph of good over evil, grounded in tales of the Gods & Goddesses, including Rama, Kali, Ganesha, Krishna, Lakshmi, Parvati, and Shiva, associated with wealth, prosperity, and goodness, and celebrated by lighting lamps and exchanging gifts.[i] Some Buddhists celebrate this as the day Emperor Ashoka converted from Hinduism to Buddhism in 262 BCE.[ii] For Jains, it marks Lord Mahavir’s attainment of Nirvana in 527 BCE and the beginning of the New Year.[iii] Sikhs remember Diwali as Bandi Chhor Diwas (Day of Liberation) when the 6th Guru and 52 princes were freed from prison by the Muslim Mughal emperor in 1619.[iv] Diwali is a significant occasion for South Asians from many religious traditions.

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Opening Reception, Cryptogram: New Works by Brian Knep and Natalie Andrew
Suffolk University Gallery is very pleased to present Cryptogam: New works by Brian Knep and Natalie Andrew from October 19 - November 25, 2014. A reception will be held Thursday, October 23 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
 
In Cryptogam, artists  Brian Knep and Natalie Andrew explore unconventional reproduction. Cryptogams, from the Greek word for "hidden marriage", are plants that reproduce without flowers or seeds. In their works, the artists, who are married but work independently, play with growth, multiplication, variation, and propagation.
 
Starting from grainy photographs of failed embryos, Andrew builds living reproductions from mosses, ferns, and slime molds - all cryptogams - and inks made from their spores. These gardens depict aspects of the emotional journey of infertility while providing a contemplative visual experience rooted in components of mythic and folkloric scenery - places where magic can happen. To create his sculptures, Knep sets up mathematical systems that mimic natural patterns. He seeds the systems with models of early-stage embryos, lets them develop, and builds the results. The pieces are a mix of control and lack of control; the determinism of the systems balanced against the intuition and desires of the creator.
 
Natalie Andrew is an artist, biologist, engineer, and cognitive-scientist researching creativity, myxomycete biology, paradigm shifts, and the ingredients of wonder. She has exhibited at the McColl Center for Visual Arts, Axiom Gallery, Boston Cyberarts Gallery, Nave Gallery Annex, and was a 2013 Massachusetts Cultural Council award recipient. A biologist at Harvard University, Andrew has published in Nature Cell Biology (where her illustrations made the cover) and other journals. She has a Doctorate in Biology, a Masters in Cognitive Science, and a Bachelor in Physics with Electronics, all from the University of Birmingham, England. Natalie currently lives and works in Cambridge, MA.
 
Brian Knep is a media artist whose works range from large-scale interactive installations to microscopic sculptures for nematodes. He was the first artist-in-residence at Harvard Medical School, working side-by-side with scientists, using their tools and techniques to explore alternative meanings and ways of connecting. Knep's Deep Wounds, commissioned by the Office for the Arts at Harvard University, has won awards from Ars Electronica, the International Association of Art Critics, and Americans for the Arts, who selected it as one of the best public art projects of 2007. He has also shown at the Denver Art Museum, Milwaukee Art Museum, RISD Museum,  Aldrich Center for Contemporary Art, and others; and he has grants and awards from Creative Capital, Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the LEF Foundation, among others. Knep holds a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and a Master's degree in Computer Science, both from Brown University. He studied ceramics at the Radcliffe Ceramics Studio and glass blowing at Avon and Diablo Glass. His publications have appeared in computer graphics and computer-human interaction journals. Knep lives and works in the Boston area and is represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, NY.

Moderator: Father Richard McGowan (Research Associate, Harvard Medical School)

Description:  This public forum to be held just before the November 4th vote will likely be the last chance for the leaders on each side of the casino debate to make their case to – and take questions directly from – the people of Greater Boston. We present this an opportunity for the people of our state to hear whether the licensing process is playing out as expected and jobs will be available right on schedule or that the lawsuits, hints of organized crime, and regulator bias in this process thus far are harbingers of worse effects to come.
