SENIOR SHOW: Union College visual arts majors Christina Duff and Lesley Klein will be featured in a print and sculpture exhibition at Union’s Arts Atrium beginning Saturday (May 21) and continuing through June 2. Duff’s part of the show is Revived and Refined; the emphasis is on “an appreciation of antiques and a revival of the old, encouraging people to look at things in a different” way. Klein’s show is titled Impressions of the Figure; she is interested in the “exploration of the human form” through printmaking (pictured). For more info, call 388-6131.

WALK THE WALK: Playwright, Ballston Spa resident and recent Bennington grad Effy Redman is leading a Memorial Walk for Victims of Genocide and Hate Crimes this Memorial Day. The walk will be held on Monday, May 30, beginning at 9 AM in Saratoga Springs’ Veterans’ Memorial in Congress Park and end, 8 miles later, at Wistwall Park in Ballston Spa. The specific occasion is the “11th anniversary of the halfway point” of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Redman has a personal/professional connection to this tragedy, as her play Year Ten, about a peacekeeper’s return to Rwanda, had a staged reading at a New Dramatists workshop in New York in November 2004. Additionally, Redman will be going to Rwanda next month with a group of writers and artists as part of the project More Life: Cultural Studies and Genocide. Everyone is invited to take part in the walk—or sponsor a walker. For more information, e-mail redman at effyred or call 885-0453.

LAST CHANCES: A couple of shows, large and small, are closing this weekend. First, 3 Women, a exhibit of prints, digital images and paintings by Pattie Lipman, Christine Krahforst and Nina Stanley, ends Saturday (May 21) at the Fulton Street Gallery in Troy. For more information, call 274-8464. Then, it’s your last chance to check out the Mary Wilson Supreme Legacy Collection exhibit at the Albany Institute of History and Art; the show ends Sunday, May 22. For hours and other info, call 463-4478 or visit

GREEN ART WANTED: We get some interesting press releases flying in over the transom, but this one was something different: “The Greenwich Youth Democratic Committee requests your submission of juried art show to be held at One One One in Greenwich” from June 30-July 3. The theme of the show is environmental, and proceeds from the show “will be used to bring environmental awareness to the area.” For more info, call committee chair Nikki Dowling at 692-3394. It’s nice to see a political group supporting art, instead of trying to eliminate it. Before you non-Dems get all hot and bothered about being left out, any Republicans, Communists, Ayn Rand-ites or Anarcho-Syndicalists sponsoring similar shows are welcome to contact us at
