A group of important and rarely seen paintings and works on paper by the American master Milton Avery (1893-1965) will be on display October 14 through November 20 to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated art gallery on the second floor of SU's Milton_Avery_Revisited Lubin House, 11 East 61st Street, in Manhattan. The exhibition, Milton Avery Revisited: Works from the Louis and Annette Kaufman Collection,includes landscapes, still lifes, a number of little-known portraits, and three self-portraits. "The portraits allow a rare glimpse into the artist's circle of friends and family," says curator Domenic Iacono, associate director of the University Art Collection. "The self-portraits offer an equally enlightening view of Avery at various points in his career. One sees immediately the artist's ability to catch a mannerism, piece of clothing, or physical characteristic that personifies the sitter."
      Eminent American violinist and art collector Louis Kaufman (1905-1994) was a favorite of the Golden Age Hollywood film composers and directors, and of such celebrated concert composers as Copland, Poulenc, and William Grant Still. The first American violinist to perform and record Vivaldi's The Four Seasons(for which he won the 1950 Grand Prix du Disquein Paris), he also was an art lover who was the first to buy an Avery oil painting and urge other collectors to follow suit. After Kaufman's marriage to pianist Annette Leibole in 1933, the Kaufmans not only performed, recorded, and did musicological research together, but amassed a major art collection. Their holdings feature African, Asian, and Pre-Columbian pieces, as well as works by Avery and many other important modern American, Latin American, and European artists. Annette Kaufman, a friend of Syracuse who has donated artwork to the University, has agreed to lend the works in Milton Avery Revisited for a two-year national tour, including a fall 2000 showing at Lowe Art Gallery on campus. Milton Avery's daughter March and her family will join Annette Kaufman at the exhibition's Lubin House opening.


Dave Pasch '94, who for the past two years has hosted Chicago Blackhawks pre- and post-game shows for WMAQ-AM in Chicago, is the new play-by-play announcer for SU football and men's basketball radio broadcasts.
      He will be joined in the broadcast booth by at least one alumni celebrity broadcaster during each regular season football game, and some basketball games. Among the renowned sports voices scheduled to share the microphone with Pasch are: Marv Albert '63, Len Berman '70, Bob Costas '74, Ian Eagle '90, Marty Glickman '39, Hank Greenwald '57, Sean McDonough '84, Andy Musser '59, Dick Stockton '64, and Mike Tirico '88.
      The broadcasts will be carried throughout New York State on more than 20 stations that compose the new Syracuse University Sports Network. The flagship stations are Pilot Communications-owned WAQX-FM (95.7) and WNSS-AM (1260) in Syracuse.
      "We are looking forward to Dave's involvement with the next era of Syracuse University athletic broadcasts," says Jake Crouthamel, director of athletics, "and we're thrilled these professionals will be part of our new network broadcasts."
