New exhibition now open at Binghamton University

first_imgVESTAL (WBNG) — A new exhibition is open at Binghamton University’s Art Museum on campus. “This is a practice that started centuries ago in china, and it was a means to disseminate aesthetically or intellectually important information, So this is before we have any type of printmaking process that can disseminate information or share information.” said Claire Kovacs the Curator of Collections and Exhibitions. The exhibition was put together in a collaboration between the BU Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera and two Chinese artists. Its titled “Snowflakes Between Gauze: Rubbings from Han Dynasty Tombs.” The exhibit is free and open to the public until March 4, it can be found in the Fine Arts Building on Binghamton University’s campus. These rubbings are done through a process of applying paper to stone reliefs and slowly rubbing ink to create a reproduction. Featuring 25 rubbings from stone reliefs from the Han dynasty, this art exhibit focuses on funeral practices and the history of the Han Dynasty.last_img read more

KNOW Theatre turns back time with series of radio plays

first_img“It’s a way to keep the actors and the crew that we work with at KNOW creative so they can get that outlet and give audiences something for them to enjoy while we’re all trapped,” Lyle said. But translating a stage show into something that is only meant to be heard presented artistic director Tim Gleason with a challenge, one he says he is all for. Lyle says the plays are available on Spotify, Google Podcasts and other platforms free of charge, but the theater welcomes donations as the work through the crisis. The plays are specially chosen by Stage Manager Duncan Lyle to fit the audio only format. For more information on how you can listen to a play or donate, click here. They include actors familiar to theater goers here in the Southern Tier and are called the Know Theatre Radio players. Organizers say they are doing the plays as a way to help out both cast members and audiences who are both looking for something to do during the crisis. He stressed that remaining creative is critical to artists working in the theater industry “Duncan being the nice guy he is hooked me up with an Irish tragedy so I have to convey to my actors how we show that tragedy without slumped shoulders and tearful eyes,” he said. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — With live performances currently on hold due to COVID-19, KNOW Theatre in Binghamton wants to take you on a trip back in time. Actors and behind the scenes staff have launched a series of radio adaptations of plays that date back to the roaring twenties and even before. last_img read more

Tenney, Brindisi square off over Spectrum solution

first_img“I would break up the monopoly, go to the FCC, ask the FCC to re-look into this monopoly, give us a choice, and allow a lot of the other players in the market who would like to provide the service at a lower cost price,” Tenney told 12 News Wednesday. Additionally, Tenney claimed Brindisi voted to allow Spectrum to form a ‘monopoly’ when he was a state assemblyman, a part of the state budget she said she voted against. Tenney is running for her former NY-22 congressional seat against Rep. Anthony Brindisi, who she said has failed to live up to his campaign promises to hold Spectrum accountable. She said the internet provider has raised rates six times since Brindisi took office. Tenney said if elected, she would push the federal government to intervene on behalf on constituents. In response, Congressman Brindisi’s re-election campaign sent a statement to 12 News, which you can read in its entirety below:center_img BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — On Wednesday, former congresswoman Claudia Tenney reignited a debate over the future of broadband internet in Upstate NY. Currently, Frontier also provides broadband service to parts of the NY-22 congressional district. “Claudia come lately is at it again. After giving Spectrum a $9 billion tax cut, cashing their campaign checks, and staying silent during her tenure in Congress she is trying to join Anthony’s fight against Spectrum. NY-22 voters remember her record of cutting Spectrum’s taxes while they raised rates and they won’t be fooled–no matter how much dark money her Washington allies spend.”last_img read more
