Nancy Train Smith ‘Cloud of Unknowing’ – SCCC Art Gallery

in Home Page, News, Performing Arts, Performing Arts Box, Performing Arts Spotlight, The Gallery

nancy-train-smithSussex County Community College is delighted to announce “Cloud of Unknowing”.  An Installation of Paintings will be on view at the Art Gallery in C building. The artist will be present during the Opening Reception on Friday, December 9 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the SCCC Art Gallery. The exhibit will run from December 9-January 20 and is free and open to the community.

In her commitment to a life of an artist, Nancy Train Smith has three distinct, perhaps converging types of studio practice, ceramics, painting and site-specific sculpture.  She has lived in Massachusetts since 1991 and has used the spectacular landscape of South Dartmouth as inspiration for many of her projects.  The exhibition of paintings is the culmination of an intensive study of landscape of the estuarine coast, where once the artist sought to capture the feeling of being in the landscape rather than simply looking at it, her recent work shows a more symbolic connection to place, using elemental signs such as cloud formation and waterfalls.

Her work has been included in many private and museum collections worldwide.

Guns in America – Topic of SCCC film/discussion

in News, Performing Arts

-2Monday, October 24
10:30 am
Performing Arts Center

The highly regarded documentary film, 91%: A film About Gun Violence in America, takes on the hot topic of gun control. Many proposed mechanisms for controlling gun distribution are opposed by gun rights activists, but research shows that 91 percent of U.S. citizens support a universal background check for firearms purchases.

A screening of this very timely film will be held at Sussex County Community College (SCCC) at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 24, in the Performing Arts Center, One College Hill Road, Newton. The documentary is free and open to the community. A discussion with filmmaker John Richie will follow.

“Gun Violence in America is epidemic” says William McGovern, program coordinator for the Criminal Justice and Fire Science Technology programs at SCCC.  “From homicides in Chicago to mass shootings at schools, we as a nation need a better solution to preventing tragedies that happen over 300 times a day in our communities. We look forward to presenting this important – and timely – documentary.”

The film was produced and directed by John Richie, a writer/director/producer based out of New Orleans. In 2004, he began his film career working in the camera department of many large Hollywood films. Ritchie found his passion in documentary filmmaking in 2006 working on Spike Lee’s When the Levees Broke, the 5 part HBO series about Hurricane Katrina’s effect on the people of the Gulf South. Shortly after this experience, John embarked on making his own films centered on social justice issues with a focus on gun violence and policy.

His newest film, 91%, is being released this year through The Cinema Guild. 91% examines Americans overwhelming support for comprehensive background checks on all gun sales, Congress’s failure to pass any meaningful legislation to date, and how it affects our public health.

This work has led Richie into working on projects with the Sierra Club, City of New Orleans, and The Louisiana Endowment for The Humanities. He’s known for his ability to bring honesty in the telling of difficult stories while maintaining the integrity of the people and the truth.
