Film Screening at Quinnipiac University “The Age of Love,” a new award-winning documentary about senior citizens and speed dating, will be screened at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 5, in the Clarice L. Buckman Theater at Quinnipiac University. This event is free and open to the public. “The Age of Love” follows the humorous and poignant adventures of 30 senior citizens in Rochester, N.Y. who sign up for a first-of-its-kind speed dating event exclusively for 70-90 year olds. From anxious anticipation through the dates that follow, it’s an unexpected tale of intrepid seniors who lay their hearts on the line, and discover how dreams and desires change – or don’t change – from first love to the far reaches of life. Born in the years before World War II, none of the 30 registrants for Rochester’s first senior speed dating event dreamt of being flung into the high-tech social scene of the new millennium. But now as posters go up, local media buzzes and anticipation grows, these typically overlooked seniors are spurred to confront the realities of physical appearance, romance and loneliness, loss and new beginnings. The film takes viewers where no documentary has gone before – directly into the lives of older singles who still yearn to be seen and understood, who still desire another’s touch, who seek a new chance at love. A student panel will discuss the movie and dialogue with the audience following the screening at Quinnipiac. Seating is limited for the screening. To register, please visit www.quinnipiac.edu/ageoflove. For more information about the screening at Quinnipiac, please call 203-582-8652. Familiar at the Yale Rep YALE REPERTORY THEATRE (James Bundy, Artistic Director; Victoria Nolan, Managing Director) presents the world premiere of FAMILIAR by Danai Gurira, directed by Rebecca Taichman, January 30–February 21 at Yale Repertory Theatre (1120 Chapel Street). Opening Night is Thursday, February 5. The cast of FAMILIAR is Shyko Amos, Harvy Blanks, Cherise Boothe, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Juanita Jennings, Ross Marquand, Kimberly Scott, and Joe Tippett. In a snowy Midwestern suburb, Marvelous and Donald are preparing for the marriage of their eldest daughter. Clashes erupt within the family when the first-generation American bride-to-be insists on observing a traditional Zimbabwean wedding ritual. Familiar is a richly funny and deeply moving new play about the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters, sisters, wives and husbands—the customs they keep, and the secrets they keep buried. Tickets for FAMILIAR range from $20–98 and are available online at yalerep.org, by phone at (203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street).

Each year, CAW offers over 300 classes and workshops taught by more than 50 professional artists. Artwork by budding young artists ages two and up is displayed along side the work by professional artists continuing their studies at CAW. All types of media are featured, including book arts, drawing and painting, fiber, jewelry, photography, pottery, printmaking, sculpture and more.

Part of a larger conceptual series titled “Ephemera,” the exhibition features small cubes comprised of shredded documents, photos and other objects that refer to the artist’s personal experience and the process of transformation.

A Body in Fukushima Wesleyan University's Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, Davison Art Center, and College of East Asian Studies Gallery at Mansfield Freeman Center present A Body in Fukushima Tuesday, February 3 through Sunday, March 1, 2015 South Gallery, Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery Tuesday, February 3 through Thursday, March 5, 2015 Davison Art Center Tuesday, February 3 through Sunday, May 24, 2015 College of East Asian Studies Gallery at Mansfield Freeman Center A Body in Fukushima is a haunting series of color photographs and videos presented in a groundbreaking exhibition across all three of Wesleyan’s galleries: the South Gallery of the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery; the Davison Art Center; and the College of East Asian Studies Gallery at Mansfield Freeman Center. In 2014, dancer-choreographer Eiko Otake and photographer-historian William Johnston followed abandoned train tracks through desolate stations into eerily vacant towns and fields in Fukushima, Japan. Following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the explosions of the Daiichi nuclear plant there made the area uninhabitable. Sometimes in vulnerable gestures and at other times in a fierce dance, Ms. Otake embodies grief, anger and remorse. Mr. Johnston’s crystalline images capture her with the cries of the Fukushima landscapes. “By placing my body in these places,” she says, “I thought of the generations of people who used to live there. I danced so as not to forget.” A project of witness, remembrance and empathy, "A Body in Fukushima" grapples with the reality of human failure. As Mr. Johnston writes, “By witnessing events and places, we actually change them and ourselves in ways that may not always be apparent but are important.” An artist talk with Eiko Otake and William Johnston will be held on Thursday, February 5, 2015 from 5:30pm to 6pm in CFA Hall, located at 287 Washington Terrace on the Wesleyan campus in Middletown, followed from 6pm to 7pm by a walking tour of the three galleries, with an opening reception in each location. The snow date for the artist talk, gallery tours and opening receptions is Tuesday, February 10, 2015 from 5pm to 7pm. Admission to the artist talk, gallery tours, and opening receptions is free. Paint Skin January 31 through March 7 Farrell Brickhouse Lucy Mink Covello Allison Hornak Ted Gahl Christopher Mir Susan Carr David Taylor Natalie Westbrook Valentina Sarfeh Curated by Noé Jimenez Opening reception: Saturday, January 31, Noon until 2. Lucy Mink Covello, In, 2011. Oil on linen over panel. Image courtesy of the artist. This group of artists engages in similar themes of visual gestures, painting surface, and abstraction of both natural, digital, synthetic, or photographic imagery. Their work is united by this development of an ever changing vocabulary and definition of painting. Although they share similar concepts and execution, their differences speak to the variety of paintings being made in the digital age, each piece a different form of “Paint Skin."
