Alyssa C. Salomon uses photography to collect, imagine and evoke feral beauty, speaking to our human yearning for contact with things wild and wondrous. She is expert at printing with nineteenth century photographic chemistries, selecting her processes for formal elegance, romantic abstraction, physical control, and the potential for dumb luck.
Salomon’s current project, “Animal Land,” was featured in a solo exhibition this spring at Candela Gallery (Richmond VA) and at Candela’s booth in AIPAD’s photo fair in New York. A Chicken in Every Plot, her two-year project with The Valentine Museum (Richmond VA) was on view during 2016. Recently, Salomon has been developing a line of screen-printed home textiles and paper goods under the moniker Blue Skies Workroom. Salomon’s art work has been recognized with awards including two VMFA Professional Fellowships, New Waves Best in Show prize, Theresa Pollak Award for Excellence in the Arts, and a Wingate Scholarship. Salomon was tapped to be the second Artist in Residence at VCU School of Business. Salomon holds degrees from Kenyon College and University of Chicago, apprenticed with daguerreotypist Robert Shlaer, and has studied and taught at Penland School of Crafts. She teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, and also at Studio Two Three where she is also Chair of the Board of Directors. Salomon is represented by Candela Gallery, Penland Gallery, and Soho Myriad. http://alyssasalomon.com

The Neurosciences program welcomes Dr. Meghan Creed, a researcher at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Pharmacology. Her topic:
Targeting synapses to treat cocaine addiction
Addiction is a chronic, relapsing disorder that is driven by long-term changes in the function of neural circuits, which persist long after addictive drugs have been cleared from the body. Neural circuits are ensembles of neurons that that are connected by specialized structures called synapses, and which work together to generate behavior. Addictive drugs alter the function of synapses and circuits and these changes then drive pathological behavior such drug sensitization and seeking. By selectively normalizing synapse and circuit changes induced by addictive drugs, we can abolish drug-adaptive behaviors and provide blueprints for treatment of addiction.
Free and open to the public. This event may be used to satisfy the Lecture Reflection Requirement in PSYC 303, PSYC 490, and PSYC 493/494.
