Exploration Exhibit On Display from Sept. 3 through Oct. 1 A solo art show, "Exploration: A Representation of Various Printmaking Techniques," set for the Orange Hall Gallery Fringe from Sept. 3 through Oct. 1, features the works of Joan L. Mamelok.

Mamelok grew up in Middletown and now lives in Seattle, Wash. She holds a BA, BS, and MS in Philosophy from Hamilton College, Nursing from Cornell University, and Community Health/Teaching from Boston College, respectively.

But, it was her studies in Advanced Print-making Techniques at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle that fine-tuned the focus of her artistic creativity. She presently teaches printmaking at the Kirkland Arts Center, Kirkland, Wash., and will give a master class at SUNY Orange.

Her works have been shown in many exhibitions in the state of Washington. Much of her work is abstract and conveys movement sometimes related to the music she always has on when she works. She enjoys the variety of techniques that print-making offers which allows her to add components. She often puts a piece through the press several times or without a press she rubs the paper with a metal spoon or door knob, or traditional, hand-held Japanese baren to give complicated effects.

Mamelok states, “I work spontaneously with line, rounded shapes, and color. I am particularly drawn to the simultaneous feeling of what is microscopic and cosmic. I feel the tiniest part of myself as a reflection of the overwhelming-ness of the universe.”  Additionally, she remarks, “I work intuitively.... some people work narratively, but I am never consciously telling a story... doesn't mean there isn't one there, but it is not my intent.”

The "Exploration" exhibit will be on view in Orange Hall Gallery Fringe Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is free and open to the public. Questions may be directed to and (845) 341-4891. You may also visit the Cultural Affairs website at

Magician Ran'D Shine to Perform Sept. 2 in Newburgh In the time that it takes you to read these words, Ran'D has already read your mind and likely figured out which card you will pluck from the deck a week from now.

The Newburgh campus Board of Activities is pleased to present Ran D Shine, who will perform at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 2 in the Kaplan Hall Great Room.

With the flick of a wrist, the Philadelphia native has become a global phenomenon by wowing the most diverse and wildly appreciative audiences for more than a decade. His unique style and presentation so impressed President Barrack Obama that he was invited to be a special performer for the "Salute to Heroes" at the 44th Presidential Inauguration Banquet and Ball in 2009…As his fans will so gleefully attest, he is so much more than a magician.
