Gund Gallery Presents ‘The Art of Trees,’ an Exhibition Inviting New Dialogue about Our Relationship to Our Environment

GAMBIER, Ohio -- The Gund Gallery at Kenyon College is pleased to announce "The Art of Trees," an exhibition on view at the Gund from January 22 - April 11, 2021.

"The Art of Trees" reveals the many resonances, forms, and relationships of trees. Exploring themes of restoration and destruction, community and isolation, location and identity, and fragile temporalities, the 14 artists featured in the exhibition experiment with a range of mediums from painting to digital video, and even use trees as creative collaborators to express our essential and inseparable bond with these guardians of the earth.

"The Art of Trees" invites an interdisciplinary dialogue about personal, local, and global relationships to the environment, while simultaneously drawing attention to interactions between trees themselves, the communities they form, and their resilience despite human interference.

"The sense of community that trees uniquely inspire came to life through the collaborative curatorial endeavor of Gund Associates, Gallery and College staff, and Kenyon faculty," says Dr. Jodi Kovach, curator of academic programs at the Gund Gallery and an important participant in the development of the exhibition. She continues, "By leveraging one another's experiences with nature, modes of aesthetic appreciation, and perspectives on the environmental crisis, they have realized an exhibition that shows us how art can transform our ways of living with and in the natural world."

The participating Gund Associates add, "We hope that this exhibition provokes discussion about the environment and invites a heightened collective consciousness about the intersection of community and place, near and far."

In addition, the Gund Gallery is pleased to present "Nearby Voices." This special section of "The Art of Trees" exhibition offers artistic reflections on the local landscape as a shared point of witness and imagines trees as archives of commonly held stories and experiences that branch across generations of a community. "Nearby Voices" bridges the gap between global and local environmental concerns by engaging with the art and voices of community members. It will also include the work of 2020-21 artist-in-residence Brian Harnetty, an interdisciplinary, socially and environmentally engaged artist who is working collaboratively with community members to create a "sonic map" of Gambier and surrounding Knox County.

"The Art of Trees" is curated by a committee of Gund Associates, Kenyon faculty, and Gund Gallery staff who worked together in a collaborative, multi-year process to bring this project to life.

SV Diagnostic Lab Expands COVID-19 Testing Drive-Thru Sites in Ohio to Include Toledo and Akron Areas

DAYTON, Ohio -- SV Diagnostic Lab LLC, one of Ohio's leading diagnostic testing laboratories, has recently expanded its widespread COVID-19 testing beyond only high-priority individuals presenting with symptoms of the novel coronavirus, but also to now provide much-needed increased testing capacity to local physician offices, holiday travelers, nursing homes, area hospitals, municipalities and employers affected by the pandemic.

The laboratory also offers a self-pay option for expedited results. The laboratory has over 20 sites in the Columbus region but have expanded to include sites where the greatest needs are in the northeast.

For a list of all locations visit: https://www.svdiagnosticlab.com/

SV Diagnostics has developed a unique "Mouth Wash" product whereby patients "swish and spit" into a collection tube, replacing the Nasopharyngeal swabs typically associated with COVID testing if patients so choose. The process is carried out with a proprietary software that allows for self-check-in and no long wait times for testing (CovidDrive).

"Nasopharyngeal swabs are time consuming, have a high false negative rate due to improper collection and are painful and off-putting," said Dr. Phillip Gibbs, PhD the Chief Science officer and biochemist at SV Diagnostic Lab, who developed the patent-pending "Quiksal" collection method. "Patients on metformin and other medications typically have dry mouth and cannot produce enough saliva for a purely saliva-based test either."

Gibbs Continued: "Additionally, the viscosity of Saliva proposes several challenges in scaling at the lab level, cross contamination on robotics platforms and inconsistencies are high. The Oral Rinse solves all these issues. Our studies have shown the Oral Rinse to be a more effective indicator of infection due to ease of use and detecting a true infection, not just viral fragments in a nasal swab which are keeping people quarantined for much longer than they are truly infectious."

Greg Ingle, CEO said, "As the country and our own community continues to deal with the impact of this public health crisis, SV Diagnostic lab feels deeply fortunate to have the expertise and capacity to do our part in providing vital COVID-19 testing. We know it's critical that individuals experiencing symptoms or those returning to work have immediate access to testing for peace of mind and to protect our communities."

Over the past several months, SV has already been supporting testing efforts for local police departments and at area urgent cares and hospital systems across the state for patients experiencing coronavirus symptoms. Now, testing is also available to anyone that needs a test. It is as simple as sending a text message.

Anyone that needs a test can either call or text 614-819-3424 and complete the intake process and go to the drive through site. The results will be delivered in 24 to 48 hours via a text message directly to the persons mobile phone using secure messaging.

SV offers Ohio residents access to a variety of telehealth providers (if needed), scheduling of testing via its online scheduling app (CovidDrive), providing physician offices, hospitals, employers, nursing homes or municipalities with testing collection kits, as well as offering a wide variety of custom-solutions to meet specific testing needs.

About SV Diagnostic Lab:

Founded in 2017, SV Diagnostic Lab is one of the leading genomic laboratories in the Midwest. Headquartered in a 36,000 sq. ft. state of the art Facility in Dayton, Ohio, SV Diagnostic lab has grown to employ 100 people throughout Ohio, is certified by CLIA and COLA and works with national and global partners such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Shimadzu, Tecan, Eppendorf and others.

International Black Business Museum Created to Honor the Genius of Black Entrepreneurs and Inventors

BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- Look out! The International Black Business Museum is here. The IBBM is the first and only museum in the world of its type, a repository that will enshrine the monumental accomplishments of Black entrepreneurs and inventors in the United States and other countries of the world.

It will also honor black-owned banks and ancillary organizations which helped to develop principles of self-help in the Black community.

According to Dr. Bessie House-Soremekun, the President and Founder, "The establishment of the International Black Business Museum is an idea whose time has come. This pivotal institution will support black business creation and expansion. It will also enhance the development of an entrepreneurial ethos which emphasizes ways in which the Black Community can work collectively to enhance the attainment of higher levels of economic independence and more economic resources."

The IBBM has a very distinguished International Board of Directors and an Advisory Board. The IBBM has received endorsements from The Association for African American Museums (AAAM), The Carver Federal Savings Bank, and the National Black Chamber of Commerce.

The IBBM - http://www.theibbm.org/ - is currently choosing a final site among several cities to host this groundbreaking facility. Museum administrators are planning a state-of-the art multilevel building with exhibit areas, auditoriums, along with additional galleries and mixed-use spaces. The museum's official opening is scheduled to take place in the future, although it is presently holding virtual activities and creating several virtual exhibits.

Despite great odds against them historically, Black entrepreneurs and inventors have achieved mightily. Garrett Morgan, entrepreneur and inventor of the common traffic signal, gas mask, and hair straightening products, and Lewis Latimer, who drafted patents for the telephone and the incandescent light bulb, are cases in point. These trail blazers and their ancestors of color persevered through difficult obstacles, including systemic racial oppression and lack of adequate funding.

The International Black Business Museum seeks to immortalize their achievements through its mission to preserve the history and honor the contributions of Black entrepreneurs and inventors in the United States and other countries of the world. Black business is the world's business!

Black Americans control around $1.3 trillion of America's $22 trillion economy - the world's largest economic system - and Africa is home to one of the globe's richest black entrepreneurs, Aliko Dangote of Nigeria, whose estimated worth is $8.3 billion. As the U.S. and other countries strive to attain more just and equitable societies, it is and will remain the mission of the International Black Business Museum to educate and enlighten the global community about the amazing achievements of this important group.

Ohio Veterans Launch Camp Freeman GoFundMe campaign and website to begin construction on their first non-profit Veterans’ Retreat

NEWARK, Ohio -- Camp Freeman, a Veteran Owned Ohio Non-Profit 501(c)(3) has been established to support homeless, at-risk, disabled, and transitioning veterans. Camp Freeman is launching their fundraising campaign on Gofundme.com September 11th, 2020 with a goal of $2.9 million to build their first regional facility and headquarters right here in central Ohio.

The new organization is currently accepting donations on their website https://www.campfreeman.com, GoFundMe https://gf.me/u/yxtbk6, via PayPal https://www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/4016569, or by mail to Camp Freeman, PO Box 245, Jacksontown, OH 43030.

Volunteer opportunities are also available for individuals and organizations who wish to support the veteran community.

Services

Camp Freeman is a planned 50+ acre veterans' retreat and the first facility of its kind featuring:
* Veteran's Village (Cabins/Tiny Houses)
* Transitional Housing
* Family Support and Crisis Shelter
* Support Groups
* On-site Behavioral Health
* Nutritional services
* Education & Counseling
* RV Campground & Primitive Campsites
* Recreational Facilities
* Fitness Center & Aquatics
* Art & Equine Therapy Programs
* Auto Hobby Shop
* Designated Quiet Spaces
* & So Much More

Each veteran will go through an initial interview and counseling that Camp Freeman will use to create an individual action plan with easy to reach personal goals. Major milestones will be celebrated to recognize these veterans' efforts for themselves and their community. All programs at camp freeman will be offered at no cost except for campground, Veterans' Village, and transitional housing; but those cabin and site rentals will be offered on an income-based scale so it is affordable for any veteran.

Camp Freeman's mission may best be stated by one of its founding members, Christopher Reynard: "We are tired of watching veterans fall through the cracks of a broken system. Our veterans need real behavioral health support, real community, real comradery, and most of all they need their military family back. With the onslaught of natural disasters, a nationwide pandemic, and a forthcoming eviction apocalypse, we can't wait any longer. The time is now! The place is right here where we can make the greatest impact."

Camp Freeman Board Members

One of their Board Members, Timothy Godwin has already launched a highly successful PTSD Support Group, The Huddle, which is still active today. Another, Jacob Edgell, has spent most of his time in the past couple of years practicing and planning therapy opportunities for disabled Veterans including art, equine therapy, digital veterans' communities, and even volunteers as a counselor for veterans in his spare time through multiple online support groups. With over 15 years of combined experience serving veterans and active military members, the Board Members of Camp Freeman have witnessed what could only be described as Miraculous Transitions.

According to Army Veteran, Specialist Murphy who was homeless with a family of 5 near the onset of the Covid-19 crisis and is now transitioning into his own home in Southern Ohio: "I don't know where I'd be without Tim, Jake, and Chris. . .maybe on the side of the road...probably not good. My family and I got to stay with Chris and his family, and it was different than anything I'd seen. Seeing what they do for others makes it hard not to try every day and be a success story... I can't wait 'til I can come back and help some!"

The Camp Freeman Team has supported veterans in crisis, assisted with housing, provided counseling, sheltered veterans and their families, and most importantly have built supportive relationships with veterans of every background using only their own resources. With the support of local organizations and public/private donors to provide facilities and paid staff; Camp Freeman will make an unimaginable impact on the Veteran Community while providing a benchmark for the veterans' programs of the future.

Board member Timothy Godwin while speaking at a recent board meeting stated: "It's not just Central Ohio...It's not just Ohio, it's all the surrounding states...the whole nation...None of our unsung heroes will be forgotten with time and no more will be abandoned if they come to us. That is going to be our legacy, our brothers continuing on, that is our legacy... Sometimes you just can't do it alone...It takes a village."

Camp Freeman can be operational before the end of the year at a limited capacity with the success of this fundraising campaign then operating at full capacity before the end of 2021. On this September 11th, remember the patriotism and the unity after that great tragedy. With your support now, next year on the 20th Anniversary of this generation's Pearl Harbor (9/11/2021) Camp Freeman will be fully operational and serving veterans from all across the nation. With all of the hatred and discontent spreading today, this gives us all a chance to be a part of something positive that will not only save lives, but give our nations heroes the purpose and opportunity they deserve.

Fortin Ironworks’ Bee Bench Promotes Communities Coming Together

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Fortin Ironworks was inspired to design this new product because it simply felt that it gives the "right message at the right time." Bees exemplify communities working together and that was the buzz behind its new community "Bee Bench."

Fortin Ironworks has created a small inventory that's ready to ship now. The message and size can also be customized to meet specific needs. Customizations can include names and logos too and will take approximately two to four weeks to ship. They're ideal for memorials and donor recognition too.

A special introductory sale price of only $649 is set to motivate people to make a move to build communities up, not tear them down.

Bash Foo Teams Up with Thomas as a Certified Thomas Agency

DAYTON, Ohio -- Bash Foo, a digital marketing agency located in Dayton, Ohio has worked for 21 years in web development and lead generation, serving dozens of clients in the industrial and manufacturing sectors. Powered with a common set of goals, Bash Foo will deliver combined capabilities that reach 1.1 million registered buyers, engineers, MROs, and decision-makers on the Thomasnet.com(R) platform.

"Sales teams are often too preoccupied with retention and new business development to properly work on engaging and growing those +1 new customer opportunities. I believe that this new partnership with Thomas ushers in ground-breaking sales enablement services for our existing and future manufacturing clients," shared Bash Foo President, Mike McDermott.

Manufacturers have seen their trade shows and industry conferences evaporate in the wake of COVID-19, making digital marketing an essential ingredient of healthy lead generation efforts. Thomas provides them with access to more than 1.1 Million registered users of the Thomasnet.com(R) platform. Bash Foo develops marketing collateral and email sequences that work to persuade these Tier 1 and 2 OEM's to consider new RFQ's from manufacturers, both large and small.

"As a Certified Thomas Agency, Bash Foo can leverage the Thomas audience, products, and services to increase exposure, engagement, lead generation, and drive growth for their manufacturing and industrial customers. We're proud to have them as a partner in supporting the growth of manufacturing in North America," said Thomas President and CEO, Tony Uphoff.
