George Shaw, professor emeritus, delivered the second of a six lecture series on “Great Moments in the History of Life” at the Glen Eddy Senior Living Community. His second talk covered the formation of the solar system Earth’s early atmosphere and ocean. He showed several meteorite specimens from the Geology Department’s collection.

Work by Tim Olsen, associate professor of music, will be featured in “Then & Now,” a multi-disciplinary exhibition celebrating the past and present work of artists who have received individual artist grants through Saratoga Arts’ Community Arts Grant Program. These grants are designed to support artists making new work and developing new approaches to its creation. Featuring the work of 29 visual and performing artists and writers, the exhibition continues through Nov. 3 at the Saratoga Arts Center, 320 Broadway, Saratoga Springs. At 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 20, Olsen will join composers Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius and Maria Riccio Bryce for an evening of music and conversation at the Dee Sarno Theater at the Saratoga Arts Center, during which Olsen will perform his piano composition “Three Postcards.”
