  • - Garrett College Continuing Education & Workforce Development will host a Regulations Professional Seminar, an Important New OSHA Regulations Update, on Friday, September 9, 2016 from 9 a.m. until 12 noon in Room 205 in the Continuing Education building at the McHenry campus of Garrett College. The OSHA injury and illness records are critical indicators. The OSHA records help identify unsafe patterns and trends in the workplace and to monitor improvements. These records demonstrate how well we are doing in our efforts to keep workers safe and healthy. Accurate OSHA recordkeeping can provide the answers.

    This presentation seminar will provide an overview of 29CFR Part 1904 of the OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation. The presentation will present the basics of the regulation going step-by-step through major sections in the rule. Included will be an activity of injury and illness case scenarios determining if each case should be recorded on the OSHA log based on the principles presented.

    Steve Bisson, presenter of this seminar, is an administrator with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, Division of Labor and Industry. He has been working with occupational safety and health statistics including providing training for the OSHA recordkeeping regulation for over 26 years. He is the program manager for the Maryland Division of Labor and Industry's Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Injury and Illness Statistics Programs and functions as a principal adviser to the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency on the recordkeeping regulation. Bisson is currently part of a work group tasked by federal OSHA to develop a new injury tracking web application.

    For more information or to register for the upcoming seminar, persons may contact Connie Meyers, Director of Professional Development and Contract Training at Garrett College, at 301-387-3084 or connie.meyers@garrettcollege.edu.

  • - Felted Textiles and Old Masters Style Paintings Showcased in the Allegany Arts Council’s Galleries

    Beginning August 13 and continuing through September 3, the Allegany Arts Council hosts two new exhibitions.

    In the Saville Gallery, “I Felt Like It 2” showcases the art of felting with works from 10 members of the Potomac Fiber Arts Guild of the greater Washington metropolitan region. Works in this exhibition highlight the many creative and colorful ways that wool can be felted in to wearable and decorative art. This is the second exhibition to feature PFAG members. The first, in 2011, was very well received. Since then, making felt has continued to grow as an artistic medium. Workshops and online instructions, along with the ability of enthusiasts to purchase different wool roving on the internet and various Sheep and Wool Festivals has fueled a worldwide felting movement. Because the medium is so adaptive it keeps the artist exploring and engaged with ever new possibilities.

    The ten artists featured in the show are: Joanne Bast, Dalis Davidson, Paige Garber, Roz Houseknecht, Kathy Korin, Grace Mahanes, Elise Miller, Jill Neuman, Zita Simutis and Bev Thoms. Artwork includes a great variety of wearables as well as wall pieces, sculptures, vessels, jewelry and other decorative work.

    In the Schwab Mountain Maryland Gallery is Dan Helsel of Davidsville, PA. Helsel began painting in 1995 after retiring from business. He studied at The Sulkowksi Academy of Fine Art in Canonsburg and has also participated in workshops led by artists James Sulkowski, Tom Nicholas and T.M. Nicholas. His brilliant landscape and still life paintings have been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout western and central Pennsylvania, earning numerous awards. He is well regarded for possessing a deft artistic touch and style that harkens back to the Old Masters. He paints on oil-primed linen canvas and prepares his own panels from Gesso using a Renaissance formula.

    The opening reception for both exhibitions is Saturday, August 13, from 6-8pm. The Allegany Arts Council is located at 9 North Centre Street in downtown Cumberland, MD and is accessible for wheelchairs.
