SUNY Oneonta’s Martin-Mullen Art Gallery will feature a new exhibit exploring both the beauty of cotton and how it prolonged slavery in the United States. The exhibit entitled “Cotton: The soft dangerous beauty of the past” opens Monday and runs through March 16th.  A public reception is scheduled for next Thursday at 5:00 p.m. where photographer John E. Dowell, Jr. will deliver a gallery talk followed by a dance performance, “Cotton in Motion,” by choreographer Kareem Goodwin and SUNY Oneonta students.
