SPRING SPECTRUM SERIES AT PITT-BRADFORD TO FEATURE WRITING, MUSIC AND THE HANLEY COLLECTION

BRADFORD, Pa. – The Spring Spectrum series at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will feature writing, music and an exhibition of a portion of T. Edward Hanley’s art collection.

Events are open to the public and free unless otherwise noted.

Dr. Nancy McCabe will host the annual celebration of Pitt-Bradford’s own literary magazine, Baily’s Beads, at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 23, 2013, in the Mukaiyama University Room of the Frame-Westerberg Commons.

The celebration will include the unveiling of the 2013 issue, prizes, readings by contributors and an open mic for those who want to share original writing and music. The magazine, named Best University Magazine two years running by the American Scholastic Press Association, features fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction by students, staff, faculty, alumni and area writers. Baily’s Beads has also been named one of the top 12 student magazines in the country by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association on two occasions. The event is free and refreshments will be served.

Pitt-Bradford and St. Bonaventure University have collaborated on dual exhibits of “T. E. Hanley: A Local Man with a World View,” featuring T. Edward Hanley’s collections of artwork, books and letters housed in the universities’ archives. Hanley amassed his collection over many years, starting during his studies at Harvard in the early 1900s. Parts of the collection are preserved at various galleries and universities around the globe.

Pitt-Bradford’s exhibit will be on display Feb. 7-March 8 in the KOA Art Gallery. An opening reception featuring a lecture by Mr. Dennis Frank will be held at 7 p.m. on Feb. 7.

Pianist Daniel Pesca is the final performer slated in the Spectrum music series. He will perform at 7 p.m. on Feb. 22 in the Bromeley Family Theater.

Pesca is an active soloist, chamber musician and accompanist, as well as an accomplished composer. He has collaborated with numerous groups including the JACK and Spektral Quartets and members of the Chicago Symphony. The event is free.

Essayist and Poet Lori Jakiela will be the last writer featured by Spectrum. The free event will take place at 7:30 p.m. on March 19 in the Mukaiyama University Room.

Jakiela’s poems and essays have been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Creative Nonfiction and elsewhere, including several anthologies. She has published a memoir, a poetry collection, and three poetry chapbooks. In 2007, Jakiela earned the PGAA Outstanding Faculty Award. She also received the 2010 Golden Quill award from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association for column writing. She teaches in the writing program at Pitt-Greensburg and Chatham University.

The 10th annual Pitt-Bradford Student Arts Exhibition will be on display March 22-April 19 in the KOA Art Gallery. An opening reception will be held at noon on March 22.

The exhibit, “Affairs of the Art,” will feature distinguished student artwork of a variety of media including painting, drawing, ceramics and photography. All of the more than 50 pieces were created during the 2012-2013 academic year.

A production of Will Eno’s “Oh, the Humanity,” directed by Dr. Kevin Ewert, will close out the Spectrum theater series. This series of plays features people desperately trying to present themselves in a good light.

Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on April 4-6 and at 2 p.m. on April 7 in the Studio Theater in Blaisdell Hall. Tickets cost $6 for the public and $2 for students.
