Humboldt State University's First Street Gallery is pleased to present, A Moment in Time, a group exhibition featuring eight photographers from California’s North Coast, on display from October 4th through November 3rd, 2013.
The exhibition will feature photographers working in diverse media and subjects and is meant as a sample snapshot of some of the artistic work being made in photographic media, currently, in the region of California’s North Coast.
The photographers in the exhibition work with a variety of techniques, some using, strictly analog, that is traditional wet darkroom techniques, others using purely digital approaches and still, others who employ hybrid analog/digital approaches. Despite these different technical approaches, the exhibition is unified by a group of artists who make visually compelling images drawing from a depth of poetic imagination.
Participating artists include, Julie Clark, Ricardo Febré, Nicole Jean Hill, Vaughn Hutchins, Suk Choo Kim, Ellen Land-Weber, John Mahony and William Pierson.
The exhibition opens as the western chapter of the Society for Photographic Education, holds its annual conference this year in Humboldt County, California, co-hosted by Humboldt State University and where a number of the exhibiting artists will be present and participating. Information about the conference programs can be found on line at www.west.spenational.org/conference
The exhibition is curated and produced by Humboldt State University students enrolled in the university’s Museum and Gallery Practices Certificate Program.
A reception for the artists will be held at HSU First Street Gallery on Saturday, October 5th, 2013, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. during Eureka’s monthly Arts Alive event. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. and is located at 422 First Street Eureka, California. Admission is free. Those planning group tours are encouraged to call ahead.

Humboldt State University's First Street Gallery is pleased to present, Forest Invisible, a solo exhibition by photographer Young Suh, on display from October 4th through November 3rd, 2013. The exhibition will feature photographs that examine the tradition of landscape as a subject in art as well as our culture’s dissociative relationship to nature.
Suh’s photographs examine forest fires as they alter the appearance of the landscape. Exploring the relationship between wilderness and human intervention, he depicts aspects of life in the midst of fires, from unconcerned civilians to working fire crews. The viewer experiences seemingly tranquil imagery that masks the underlying violent threat of fire
Suh states that, “Forest Invisible is a narrative of human emotions in nature––our desire, projections and failure. A narrative of nature is always a struggle between two sides: the one who wants to contain the other, and the one that proves the other wrong. But this struggle has been for so long that it is more like a dance than a war. It is an aesthetic experience.” Young Suh has been making photographs on the subject of nature and human desire to control her for the last decade.
Young Suh will give an artist talk about his photography at Humboldt State University. He will talk about his latest book, Forest Invisible and the current exhibition of the same title at the HSU First Street Gallery as well as his past and current works about living in nature. The talk is free and open to the public and will take place on October 11 at 4:30 p.m. in the Great Hall, 2nd floor above the College Creek Marketplace, corner of Harpst and Roswell, Humboldt State University campus, Arcata, California. For parking information, visit www.humboldt.edu/parking
A native of South Korea, Suh attended Pratt Institute in New York where he received his BFA in Photography in 1998. Suh went on to receive a Masters of Fine Art in Studio Art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2001. His work has since been featured in galleries and museums nationwide. Suh is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography at University of California, Davis.
A reception for the artist at HSU First Street Gallery will be held Saturday, October 5th, 2013 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. during Eureka’s monthly Arts Alive event.

The Biodiversity Conference brings together educators, researchers, and representatives of environmental government agencies and advocacy groups to discuss with us how their work helps to explore and protect biodiversity across the globe. Geared towards academia, but open to the general public, the conference will include a series of presentations covering a variety of ecological topics. Students and the public are invited to join an exciting weekend of learning more about the world around us, ways to get involved locally and how each of us play important roles in the health of the ecosystems we are part of. Please check back often for updates/changes and be sure to mark your calendars and tell your friends!

The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs invites you to "The GLBTQ Experience" presented by Dr. Ronni Sanlo. With changing laws, policies, and attitudes, colleges and universities are seeking to create welcoming environments with learning outcomes that result in retention and persistence to graduation. Using the most current research and civic developments, Dr. Sanlo helps campuses develop environments that are safe for students to learn and faculty and staff to teach and to work.

All are welcome to this week's seminar speaker. Dr. Jose R. de la Torre, of San Francisco State University, presents "From oceans to hot springs: Ammonia oxidizing archaea & their role in nitrogen and carbon biogeochemical cycling."
Ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) are significant contributors to carbon and nitrogen cycling in terrestrial and aquatic environments. N. yellowstonii grows on a broad range of ammonia concentrations and can also utilize alternative electron donors such as urea, reflecting the complex geochemistry of its natural environment. Archaeal ammonia oxidation may involve fundamentally different biochemical steps from what is known in ammonia-oxidizing bacteria and may also involve distinct chemical intermediates. Genomic comparisons between AOA and other (non-AOA) archaeal genomes have identified approximately 70 conserved genes unique to AOA. These core AOA genes likely encode key genes essential to ammonia oxidation. Gene expression studies (RNAseq and proteomics) in N. yellowstonii have further narrowed these genes to a dozen of candidates that are highly expressed during exponential growth on ammonia. Biochemical characterization of most promising candidates is currently underway.
