How many times have you scurried past the Union Gallery and not taken notice of the imaginative art inside? Give the left half of your brain a little treat today and stop in to see "Tarantella," a collection of paintings by New York artist Suzan Woodruff, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The art will be displayed with written responses by thirteen authors - I guess the right half of your gray matter won't be neglected, either. A reception will be held this evening from 5 to 7. Give the Office of Student Programs a call at 621-6142 for more information.

There's yet another art gallery tucked away on the little-traversed third floor of the Memorial Student Union. It's the Rotunda Gallery, and it's lonely. Come visit it and check out the MOSAIC exhibit today between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Levonne Gaddy and M. Craig have collaborated to bring you a view of multi-ethnic families in southern Arizona, via a photo documentary. A reception will be held for the opening from 5 to 7 tonight. Call the Office of Student Programs at 621-6142 for details.

Our beloved Cellar - yes, that place of ice-cold air conditioning and dim-to-no lighting - has gotten a face-lift of sorts. Come swoon over the new look of the Cellar today at its Grand Opening. (Think of it as a debutante ball for architecture.) Free refreshments, live entertainment by the LMNOP's, a comedy show by the Charles Darwin Experience, and speakers will be provided for your pleasure from noon 'til 9 p.m. Questions? Call 621-0760.

Ah, the power of musk. It is thought that creatures (including us humans) may mate with certain partners due to the attractiveness of her/his/its scent. Neil Vickers (Department of Biology, University of Utah) would like to explain why bugs do this. Interested? Listen to his lecture on "The Neuroethology of Pheromone Discrimination in Noctuid Moths" today at noon in Room 601 of the Gould-Simpson Building. The talk is part of the Arizona Research Laboratories Division of Neurobiology Seminar series - contact Mark Willis at 621-8384 to find out more.

As if just one bug lecture could possibly be enough! The UA Department of Entomology is sponsoring a lecture this afternoon in the Marley Auditorium (Room 230). Jonas Sandstrom, Postdoctoral Fellow in the UA Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, will be telling you all about "Aphids and Their Bacterial Endosymbionts-Nutritional Interactions" from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Ring Rose Kilby at 621-7165 for more information.

UApresents does its eponymous job tonight by bringing you a performance of "Pangols" by Le Ballet du Senegal. "Pangols" means "the spiritual nature of all beings and things;" thus, the dances express the relationship between humanity and the environment. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. on the Centennial Hall stage, but show up to Room 102 of the CESL building at 6:45 p.m. to catch a brief lecture by Barbea Williams. Williams is a dancer and choreographer, and will be speaking about West African culture and dance. Nothin' like a little background information, eh? Tickets for the show are $16, $22, and $28 - call the Centennial Hall Box Office at 621-3341 for details.

The Department of Anthropology and the Arizona State Museum have been toiling away to bring you Part II of the "New Directions in Southwestern Anthropology Lecture Series," and now you may reap the fruits of their labor. Patricia Crown (professor of anthropology, University of New Mexico) will present her research on "Becoming a Potter: How Children Learned in the Prehistoric Southwest" from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Room 110 of the Economics building. A reception will follow in the lobby of the Arizona State Museum. Suzanne Fish has further information for you at 621-2556.
