Eco Artist Krisanne Baker Exhibition at Husson University’s Robert E. White Gallery
(All day)

  Husson University announced today that it would be featuring a multimedia art and science gallery installation by Krisanne Baker at the Robert E. White Gallery in Peabody Hall on its Bangor, Maine campus. The opening reception for the exhibition will take place on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. and will begin with an artist talk by Baker. Prior to the opening, Baker will be spending time in classes where she will share her insights with Husson students as a visiting artist. The gallery installation will be on display until March 31, 2017.       “The concept of entropy, or the spiraling process of things falling apart, and the way our culture continues to layer refuse conversely inspires my work toward sustainability in our environment and culture,” said Baker. “By engaging the viewer in an internal dialogue on the results of unsustainable cultural practices, my work explores a theme of regeneration; or how we might reverse entropic situations into those that emphasize renewal or sustainable growth. I like to call this new term ‘regenerentropic.’ The meaning of my multi-media work is not embodied solely by the objects, but by the idea that we need to improve and care for our ecologies. In addition, I want to begin a dialogue and inspire action between the work and the viewing public.”       Baker grew up on Cape Cod sailing the waters of New England with her father. Her love for the ocean and our connection to it as the basis of life is evident in the digital video ‘Upstream to Downstream (In Our Bloodstreams).’ She received training as a painter at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1982. This was where she first encountered video production. Baker’s graduate work at the Vermont College of Fine Arts combined her love for the natural environment with her art. Today, she is an ecological art activist. Her multi-media sculptures, drawings, and digital media works are specifically concerned with the sustainability of water quality, availability, and the rights of all creatures on this water planet. Baker has lived and worked on the coast of Maine for over 20 years.       “We are honored to have an artist of Krisanne Baker’s caliber exhibiting at the Robert E. White Gallery,” said Kathi J. Smith, an assistant professor at Husson University’s College of Science and Humanities and gallery coordinator. “Her work reminds us of both the power and beauty contained in the natural world, along with our responsibilities as custodians of this planet to protect and ensure the ongoing sustainability of the environment. We aim to introduce students to the places where science and art meet, and to develop conversation across curriculums.”       Additional work by Baker can be seen at krisannebaker.com.       About the Robert E.

Kaytek the Wizard
(All day)

  Nashville puppet mastermind Brian Hull, director of the Nashville Public Library's Wishing Chair Productions and puppet designer, is bringing his puppet play “Kaytek the Wizard,” based on Janusz Korczak's book, to the Gracie Theatre for two performances on Friday, February 10, 2017.       The original book, written in 1933, was translated from Polish to English in 2012. Set in the city of Warsaw, the story revolves around Kaytek, a mischievous schoolboy who wants to become a wizard and is surprised to discover that he’s able to perform magic spells and change reality. He begins to lead a double life: a powerful wizard in the dress of an ordinary boy. The book is often compared to the "Harry Potter" series.       “This is the first time we are presenting a show geared toward children ages 9 and older,” said Jeri Misler, managing director of the Gracie Theatre. “Our show is perfect for children or grandchildren who like stories about magic and wizards. Public, private and home school groups should also take the opportunity to see this unique presentation, especially the daytime performance.”       There will be a question and answer session with the master puppeteer, following this hour-long multi-media show with music.       Scriptwriter and master puppeteer Brian Hull felt compelled to develop this tale because of its appeal to mature audiences ages 10 and older and its message. "Kaytek has more power than he knows how to use," Hull said during a rehearsal of the play. "It’s a lesson for all of us. Everyone has more power than they understand."       The story revolves around a troubled child by the name of Kaytek. When he first gains his powers, he wreaks havoc on his classroom by turning ink into water and making flies attack the teacher. His experiences and the results of his actions teach him the importance of responsibility.       In addition to puppets, the performance creates a magical atmosphere through a dynamic soundtrack and film projected on the screen behind the performers. The characters even sing songs. Hull’s friend and local songwriter Sarah Hart composed the music. Projections weave animation of Kaytek and his shenanigans, images of Warsaw, and footage of a puppet Korczak writing the story.       Korczak, the author of the book on which the show is based, spent his life helping troubled children. He ran an orphanage that cared for over 200 young people. When the Nazis took over Poland, he refused to leave the children and died in an internment camp. Janusz Korczak was Jewish and was a significant hero of the Holocaust.       Performances of the puppet play will be Friday, February 10, 2017 with shows at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. As a community service, Husson University is offering tickets to the 11 a.m. show for only $2. The 11 am performance is free to all Husson students, staff, faculty, and members of their families.       Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are currently on sale from $10.00-$15.00. To reserve tickets, call the Gracie Theatre box office at 207.941.7888 or visit www.gracietheatre.com. Group rates are also available for the 7 p.m. evening show.       This show is another example of the slate of exciting entertainment that the Gracie Theatre is bringing to Bangor over the next five months. Information about other upcoming performances is available on the theatre’s website, Facebook page, or by calling the box office.       Completed in October of 2009, the Gracie Theatre is Husson University's center for the fine and performing arts. This beautiful 500-seat theatre is quickly earning a reputation as one of Maine’s premier performance venues. In addition, The Gracie also serves as a learning platform for students from the New England School of Communications in digital audio, sound mixing, set design and construction, lighting, acting and electronics.       For more than 100 years, Husson University has prepared future leaders to handle the challenges of tomorrow through innovative undergraduate and graduate degrees. With a commitment to delivering affordable classroom, online and experiential learning opportunities, Husson University has come to represent superior value in higher education.

Eco Artist Krisanne Baker Exhibition at Husson University’s Robert E. White Gallery
(All day)

  Husson University announced today that it would be featuring a multimedia art and science gallery installation by Krisanne Baker at the Robert E. White Gallery in Peabody Hall on its Bangor, Maine campus. The opening reception for the exhibition will take place on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. and will begin with an artist talk by Baker. Prior to the opening, Baker will be spending time in classes where she will share her insights with Husson students as a visiting artist. The gallery installation will be on display until March 31, 2017.       “The concept of entropy, or the spiraling process of things falling apart, and the way our culture continues to layer refuse conversely inspires my work toward sustainability in our environment and culture,” said Baker. “By engaging the viewer in an internal dialogue on the results of unsustainable cultural practices, my work explores a theme of regeneration; or how we might reverse entropic situations into those that emphasize renewal or sustainable growth. I like to call this new term ‘regenerentropic.’ The meaning of my multi-media work is not embodied solely by the objects, but by the idea that we need to improve and care for our ecologies. In addition, I want to begin a dialogue and inspire action between the work and the viewing public.”       Baker grew up on Cape Cod sailing the waters of New England with her father. Her love for the ocean and our connection to it as the basis of life is evident in the digital video ‘Upstream to Downstream (In Our Bloodstreams).’ She received training as a painter at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1982. This was where she first encountered video production. Baker’s graduate work at the Vermont College of Fine Arts combined her love for the natural environment with her art. Today, she is an ecological art activist. Her multi-media sculptures, drawings, and digital media works are specifically concerned with the sustainability of water quality, availability, and the rights of all creatures on this water planet. Baker has lived and worked on the coast of Maine for over 20 years.       “We are honored to have an artist of Krisanne Baker’s caliber exhibiting at the Robert E. White Gallery,” said Kathi J. Smith, an assistant professor at Husson University’s College of Science and Humanities and gallery coordinator. “Her work reminds us of both the power and beauty contained in the natural world, along with our responsibilities as custodians of this planet to protect and ensure the ongoing sustainability of the environment. We aim to introduce students to the places where science and art meet, and to develop conversation across curriculums.”       Additional work by Baker can be seen at krisannebaker.com.       About the Robert E.

Smart Business Seminar Series: Management and Formalizing the Decision-Making Process
(Wed. 15 Feb, 2017 9:00 am - 11:00 am)

  Eaton Peabody and Husson University are combining forces to offer this informative educational opportunity       BANGOR, MAINE – January 31, 2017 – Husson University and the law firm of Eaton Peabody announced today that their second workshop in the Smart Business Seminar Series would be focusing on management and formalizing the decision-making process. The seminar will be at the Richard E. Dyke Center for Family Business on the Bangor, Maine campus of Husson University on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.   “When small business owners launch their companies, they often begin operating in an informal format. As the business grows and prospers, owners need to create a framework where others assume responsibility for meeting organizational goals for short and long term success,” says Husson University College of Business Dean Marie Hansen, JD., PhD. “Our seminar will help small business owners better understand how to create a process that streamlines decision-making by defining roles and procedures. This in turn, drives efficiency and accountability within businesses, while empowering employees.”       The upcoming seminar features two knowledgeable presenters:       The first is Eric Marshall, Of Counsel at Eaton Peabody. Marshall’s practice focuses on new business formation, debt and equity financing, business acquisitions, cooperative ventures, and general commercial contracting. He works with start-up companies, family-owned businesses, and divisions of global corporations. He enjoys diving into the competitive dynamics of his clients’ industries, and collaborating with business managers and owners to guide and execute business strategies.       Joining Marshall will be Lee Speronis, JD, CHE, CHIA, Director of School of Hospitality, Sport, and Tourism Management at Husson University’s College of Business. Speronis received his law degree from Stetson University and worked as an attorney in Florida in various capacities for over ten years. He was an area director for a major restaurant company in metropolitan New York before moving to Bangor with his family where he became an award-winning managing/partner at one of the area's premier restaurants. Speronis served as the board chair of the Bangor Convention and Visitor’s Bureau from 2013-2015 and became the chair of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce in 2017. He is also a member of the Friends of the Maine Center, the group that led the effort for a new arena/convention center to be built in Bangor.       "Working alongside Husson University on this series of seminars has been a pleasure. We were very pleased with the turnout at our first seminar in October, covering Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs). The seminars provide practical and pertinent information which is reflective of the services we regularly provide to our clients," says Gretchen Jones, chair of Eaton Peabody’s Business Practice Group. "We hope that with these seminars, we will provide valuable insight to local businesses and business people to help them address the critical issues and questions they face in order to foster their continued growth and success"       On May 17, 2017, the Smart Business Seminar Series will return to the Richard E. Dyke Center for Family Business with a workshop on “Shareholder/Limited Liability Corporation Agreements and Member Agreements.” Eaton Peabody presenters will include David Austin, managing partner and Dan Pittman, shareholder. Pittman’s presentation will focus on tax considerations associated with these agreements.       A continental breakfast will be available at each seminar. Individuals interested in registering for the upcoming seminar in February or the one in May should contact Nate Levesque via email at [email protected] The seminars are free and open to the public.       Founded in 1939, Eaton Peabody is a community-based law firm with over 50 attorneys serving New England and Atlantic Canada from offices in Augusta, Bangor, Brunswick, Ellsworth, and Portland. The firm offers broad legal expertise through a variety of focused practice groups led by some of Maine’s leading attorneys.

Starstruck Robots Compete for World Competition Berth
(Sat. 18 Feb, 2017 9:00 am - 5:30 pm)

The Maine VEX Championship will take place on February 18th at Hampden Academy in Hampden, ME. Admission is free and open to the public. High School and Middle School teams from across the state have been competing since October to earn a coveted spot in this 50 team competition. The top seven teams will go on to the VEX World Championship in Louisville, KY in April.

The Robotics Institute of Maine (RIM) has been hosting seven qualifying tournaments through the state since October. 97 teams comprised of over 1,000 students from around the state have been building, strategizing and programming their robots to compete. Qualification rounds begin at 9am with the Elimination Rounds starting around 2pm.

Starstruck is played on a 12 x 12 foot field. Alliances of two teams are randomly selected to play a 2 minute match. Each match begins with a 15 second autonomous mode (pre-programmed commands written by the students) followed by a 1:45 minute Student Driver Mode. The objective is to score more than the other Alliance by placing Stars and Cubes within certain Zones and by Hanging Robots on a Hanging Bar. The game is fast paced with major scoring changes happening quickly.

RIM is a non-profit dedicated to engaging more Maine students in competitive robotics as a way to inspire them toward studies and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. Karen Giles, RIM Director, states “competitive robotics brings together engineering, programming, leadership skills and project management in an exciting and fun format.

Eco Artist Krisanne Baker Exhibition at Husson University’s Robert E. White Gallery
(All day)

  Eco Artist Krisanne Baker to Exhibit Work at Husson University’s White Gallery       Husson University will be featuring a multimedia art and science gallery installation by Krisanne Baker at the Robert E. White Gallery in Peabody Hall on its Bangor, Maine campus. The opening reception for the exhibition will take place on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. and will begin with an artist talk by Baker. Prior to the opening, Baker will be spending time in classes where she will share her insights with Husson students as a visiting artist. The gallery installation will be on display until March 31, 2017.       “The concept of entropy, or the spiraling process of things falling apart, and the way our culture continues to layer refuse conversely inspires my work toward sustainability in our environment and culture,” said Baker. “By engaging the viewer in an internal dialogue on the results of unsustainable cultural practices, my work explores a theme of regeneration; or how we might reverse entropic situations into those that emphasize renewal or sustainable growth. I like to call this new term ‘regenerentropic.’ The meaning of my multi-media work is not embodied solely by the objects, but by the idea that we need to improve and care for our ecologies. In addition, I want to begin a dialogue and inspire action between the work and the viewing public.”       Baker grew up on Cape Cod sailing the waters of New England with her father. Her love for the ocean and our connection to it as the basis of life is evident in the digital video ‘Upstream to Downstream (In Our Bloodstreams).’ She received training as a painter at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1982. This was where she first encountered video production. Baker’s graduate work at the Vermont College of Fine Arts combined her love for the natural environment with her art. Today, she is an ecological art activist. Her multi-media sculptures, drawings, and digital media works are specifically concerned with the sustainability of water quality, availability, and the rights of all creatures on this water planet. Baker has lived and worked on the coast of Maine for over 20 years.       “We are honored to have an artist of Krisanne Baker’s caliber exhibiting at the Robert E. White Gallery,” said Kathi J. Smith, an assistant professor at Husson University’s College of Science and Humanities and gallery coordinator. “Her work reminds us of both the power and beauty       -more-   Page 2 of 2       contained in the natural world, along with our responsibilities as custodians of this planet to protect and ensure the ongoing sustainability of the environment. We aim to introduce students to the places where science and art meet, and to develop conversation across curriculums.”       Additional work by Baker can be seen at krisannebaker.com.       About the Robert E. White Gallery at Husson University       Artists with connections to Maine who work in every possible medium including watercolors, still lifes, oil paintings, pastels, sculptures, acrylics, photographs and printmaking, are featured at the Robert E. White Gallery.       With a new show approximately every 10 weeks, the gallery provides students with a glimpse at how regional artists express themselves, giving them added insight into the place where they've chosen to go to school. The newly developed visiting artist program, invites artists into the classroom to engage students in opportunities for experiential learning. The gallery was established in 1992 and named for, and endowed by, Husson alumnus and former Board of Trustee Chair Robert E. White '65.       The Robert E. White Gallery is free and open to the public, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or by appointment. It is located in Peabody Hall on the campus of Husson University at 1 College Circle, Bangor, ME. For additional information contact: 207-941-7004 or email [email protected]     For more than 100 years, Husson University has prepared future leaders to handle the challenges of tomorrow through innovative undergraduate and graduate degrees. With a commitment to delivering affordable classroom, online and experiential learning opportunities, Husson University has come to represent superior value in higher education. Our Bangor campus and off-campus satellite education centers in Southern Maine, Wells, and Northern Maine provide advanced knowledge in business; health and education; pharmacy studies; science and humanities; as well as communication.

The Amazing Doctor Wilson Children's Camp
(Fri. 24 Feb, 2017 8:30 am - 12:00 pm)

The Wilson Museum is excited to offer The Amazing Doctor Wilson, a children’s camp recommended for grades 1 - 8, during the February school break. Camp will begin on Tuesday, February 21 and end on Friday, February 24, starting each day at 8:30 a.m. and concluding at 12 p.m. All participants should bring a lunch and all-weather clothing for outside. The camp will explore the travel and adventure of Museum founder Dr. John Howard Wilson, as he discovered treasures that would establish the beginnings of his collection at the Wilson Museum.

Day 1 starts with exploring Dr. Wilson’s life. Groups will construct a timeline of his life and deduce what it was like for him traveling abroad. Participants will make a pith helmet similar to the hat Dr. Wilson used while traveling. Everyone will learn how to use a compass. Day 2 will focus on outdoor shelter building. While traveling abroad, Dr. Wilson often explored far away from cities and relied on building basic structures for shelter. On Day 3, students will explore one of Dr. Wilson’s destinations – the American Southwest. Native American sand art and leatherworking will be the highlights of the day.Students will use the compass skills from Day 1 to complete an orienteering activity. Day 4 will focus on documenting artifacts to be added to a Museum collection. There will also be another orienteering activity. The conclusion of camp will be celebrated with a party. Every camp day will include games, focusing on collaboration, problem solving, hand-eye coordination, and strength – all qualities Dr. Wilson needed as a successful traveler.

It is not necessary to attend every day and parents are welcome to stay and participate. Pre-registration is required. The deadline for registration is Tuesday, February 14. The cost of the camp for one child is $5.00 per day, or $15.00 for the entire week. Contact the Museum at (207) 326-9247 or [email protected]

Eco Artist Krisanne Baker Exhibition at Husson University’s Robert E. White Gallery
(All day)

  Eco Artist Krisanne Baker to Exhibit Work at Husson University’s White Gallery       Husson University will be featuring a multimedia art and science gallery installation by Krisanne Baker at the Robert E. White Gallery in Peabody Hall on its Bangor, Maine campus. The opening reception for the exhibition will take place on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. and will begin with an artist talk by Baker. Prior to the opening, Baker will be spending time in classes where she will share her insights with Husson students as a visiting artist. The gallery installation will be on display until March 31, 2017.       “The concept of entropy, or the spiraling process of things falling apart, and the way our culture continues to layer refuse conversely inspires my work toward sustainability in our environment and culture,” said Baker. “By engaging the viewer in an internal dialogue on the results of unsustainable cultural practices, my work explores a theme of regeneration; or how we might reverse entropic situations into those that emphasize renewal or sustainable growth. I like to call this new term ‘regenerentropic.’ The meaning of my multi-media work is not embodied solely by the objects, but by the idea that we need to improve and care for our ecologies. In addition, I want to begin a dialogue and inspire action between the work and the viewing public.”       Baker grew up on Cape Cod sailing the waters of New England with her father. Her love for the ocean and our connection to it as the basis of life is evident in the digital video ‘Upstream to Downstream (In Our Bloodstreams).’ She received training as a painter at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1982. This was where she first encountered video production. Baker’s graduate work at the Vermont College of Fine Arts combined her love for the natural environment with her art. Today, she is an ecological art activist. Her multi-media sculptures, drawings, and digital media works are specifically concerned with the sustainability of water quality, availability, and the rights of all creatures on this water planet. Baker has lived and worked on the coast of Maine for over 20 years.       “We are honored to have an artist of Krisanne Baker’s caliber exhibiting at the Robert E. White Gallery,” said Kathi J.
