Spontaneous comments at our 45th reunion on the Yale campus inspired Fred Peters to observe: “Classmates spoke of the impact that the Gothic stone buildings and courtyards, the archways with their gargoyles and the lawns both sweeping and intimate, had on their decision to make coming to Yale a priority for them.” Read his full post in Forbes: “Amazing Architecture: The Space Around Us Defines Who We Are“
June 7 – August 2, 2019
June Kelly Gallery
166 Mercer Street
New York NY
A new Charles Martin (SM) exhibition, Affinity with Brazil: 1982-present, appears June 7 – August 2, 2019 at June Kelly Gallery in SoHo, Manhattan, showing photographs of places, objects and people of Brazil, architecture by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in Constantine, Algeria, and an architectural reference from Lisbon.
Martin’s work is exhibited and held widely in museums, galleries and universities in the United States, Brazil, Europe and Algeria. His monographs include Because of Algiers (2013), Ferryboat (2000) and Home & Away (1997), and he has been Artist in Residence at the Center for Photography at Woodstock and has received support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Harvard University, Yale University, City University of New York, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Tinker Foundation and West Virginia University.
won his bid for re-election to the US Senate from Ohio, a state that Donald Trump carried by 8 percentage points in 2016. His win was termed by at least one report as a victory by “old time labor liberalism…over Ohio’s rightward drift.” I have no idea whether or not the headline is correct but I find it hard to believe that anybody as young as we are can be “old time” in any way whatsoever.

lost in what was termed a “closely watched Virginia congressional contest” for the district that includes Charlottesville. I certainly watched it, having been a friend of Leslie’s at Yale. While I offer my condolences on her loss, her concession speech reflected only optimism in defeat and pride in her and her supporters’ role in “changing the district.”
Well done to both Leslie and Sherrod for having the courage to continue to participate so visibly in the political process.
“Colette Uncensored,” by playwright Zack Rogow
(TD) and actress Lorri Holt, will be performed at the Canal Café Theatre in London beginning May 4, 2018.
The one-woman show explores the life and work of Colette, the French author best known for her novels “Gigi” and “Cheri,” who was also a vaudeville performer, trailblazing feminist and a lover whose affairs with both men and women scandalized French society at the end of the 19th century.
The play ran for six months in San Francisco/Berkeley in 2016–17 and was nominated for Outstanding Solo Production by Theatre Bay Area. It was first performed in 2015 at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage.
“Colette Uncensored” will play at Canal Café Theatre from May 4 to May 12.
