* Share your holiday traditions and greetings!

The holiday season is quickly approaching, and our fall semester is quickly coming to a close! As you prepare to head home for the holidays, UE wants to know: what is your favorite holiday tradition?

The University would like to feature a video sharing the holiday traditions of students around the world and in America, and we need your help! If you'd like to be included in this project, please record a video sharing your favorite tradition. Our students and faculty come from diverse backgrounds, and the holiday season is a great time to learn about cultures and traditions!

Additionally, if you are an international student or come from a multicultural background, we would like to learn more about your holiday greetings. Please record a short video sharing your holiday greetings in your native language and UE will create a video showing holiday messages from around the world!

All videos can be uploaded to a designated OneDrive folder. You may also provide a link to the file on OneDrive, Dropbox, or Google Drive and email jb855@evansville.edu. Please upload all videos by Wednesday, November 18!

Some video guidelines to keep in mind when recording:

  • Film your video horizontally (wide screen)
  • Don't record your video extremely closeup (in case cropping is necessary)
  • Leave a 2 or 3-second gap before you start speaking so your voice isn't cut off in the videos
  • If you choose to record outside, make sure there is no wind noise or other sounds in the background

If you have any questions, please contact Julie Bryant, university relations coordinator, at jb855@evansville.edu.

UE’s PT Club is sponsoring a Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive to support our neighbors in need. The food items will be donated to the Food Pantry at St. Mary and John Catholic Church in downtown Evansville. Collection sites are the 1st floor of Graves Hall and the 3rd floor of Stone Center through November 19 by Noon. The items needed are canned green beans, corn, baked beans, instant potatoes, mac & cheese, oatmeal, pasta, rice, canned fruit, and creamy peanut butter.

The St. Mary Food Pantry opened its doors more than 20 years ago when the parish realized the great need to provide food for the hungry in downtown Evansville. They began by assisting a few families each month. Since then, the Food Pantry has grown tremendously, now assisting more than 250 households per month.

* UEvents Online Series-Lecture Event – The Neuroscience of Stress and Resilience During a COVID-19 Holiday Season by Lora Becker, PhD

Wednesday, November 4, 2020
6:00 p.m. CST

lora becker.

We look forward to the winter holidays when we gather with friends and family to reflect on the year and share the joy of the season.

This is also a time that can be very stressful! All of the planning, negotiations, family disagreements, and loss of loved ones can make this season of joy quickly turn into a season of anxiety and stress.

This year is bringing a new challenge to the holiday season, COVID-19. In this lecture, Lora Becker, PhD, will explain our human stress response and provide suggestions, backed by neuroscience findings, on how to bolster resilience so that we can enjoy our traditions, if not in the most traditional way.

Bio

I currently reside in Evansville, Indiana but I grew up on my family’s farm in Western Kentucky. That area would provide inspiration that I still use in my work today. I have many passions, but I have always been most passionate about is art, and art education. I studied art education at Murray State University and during this time was able to explore several art mediums to better teach a wide variety of art styles and techniques. I was always a shy, quiet child and learned at an early age to use art for my own expression and communication. Still, as an adult, I use art to communicate what I can’t in words. I am currently a middle school visual arts teacher. I feel it is important for growing children to explore their own feelings, opinions, and be able to express through the language of visual arts.

Artist Statement

Time constantly passes over us leaving behind the remains of what once was. My art largely deals with the passing of time and the commonality of times effect on everything and everybody. I explore time not being a beginning or an ending, but a never-ending cycle. An example of this idea is evident in my painting Rerum Gestarum (Events of Circumstance). Rerum Gestarum is about striving for solidarity and meaning in life, all with the acknowledgement of life’s unpredictable frailness and eventual physical ending, but still existing in time even after we are gone. Growing up on a farm, I was exposed to acres of nature, machinery, and livestock I would spend my time walking down fencerows, exploring creeks, and examining the life cycles of a farm. I was fascinated by expansive spaces, gnarled tree roots, abandoned grain-bins, rusted tools and the expendable livestock. All these things combined started my fascination with cycles of both living organisms and objects.

My earliest artistic influences stem from surrealist artists such as Dali, Magritte, and the organic style of art nouveau. My emphasis in college was clay where I learned and experimented with clay and glaze techniques and recipes. After college I quickly abandoned traditional firing techniques in place of a more primitive alternative pit firing. Much like with my paintings, I use the idea of leaving a fingerprint in time; a fossil. I fire organic material to “paint” a carbon image directly onto the clay’s surface.

My current style is largely influenced by artist, Ben Mahmoud, and his large acrylic paintings, specifically “The Retrospective”. Recurring themes in my work are items that are decayed or are associated with decay, icons of time, and viewing windows to show a moment in that particular time and space. I use recycled materials such as paint, newspaper, house siding, bones, and other organic material in most of my pottery, paintings, and jewelry. I recycle materials to add to an idea of items having a previous life, and being repurposed. I also utilize shadow boxes, focal points, and linear perspective to help guide what my work is trying to communicate to the viewer. I am interested in art that subtly tells a story using lighting, focal points, and or composition. I hope to continue experimenting with different mediums, and using my work to communicate with an ever changing society.
