Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Earth Piece
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Casual China" showcases modernist designs produced by Iroquois China, Homer Laughlin, the Hall China Company, and others.

Adam Milner: Late Night Space Force
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Late Night Space Force" features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon's presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

Patty Larkin
Folkus Project

Price: $20 regular, $17 Folkus members
May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Redefining the boundaries of folk-urban pop.

Patty Larkin cannot be pigeonholed. She blends elements of jazz, roots, and Celtic into adventurous, textured compositions. A self-described "guitar driven songwriter," she winds her way through soundscapes of evocative vocals, inventive guitar wizardry, and imaginative lyrics.

"Still Green," Larkin's 13th album, plays out in Technicolor sound images, a kaleidoscope of sun and sea that travels from the fluorescent-lit hallways of grief to the warm pull of love, family and nature. Much of it written in a primitive dune shack on the Outer Banks of Cape Cod's National Seashore, 'Still Green' is a fresh approach to sound and life from a legendary songwriter who continues to amaze. Larkin's 14th album, 'Birds in a Cage', was recently released. Her first album in six years, it is a collection of poems set to song.

Larkin is the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate of Music from Berklee College of Music, where she is now an Artist in Residence. She has also earned eleven Boston Music Awards and has been honored by Boston's Mayor Thomas Menino with "Patty Larkin Appreciation Day" in recognition of her philanthropic contributions to non-profit organizations.

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Adam Milner: Late Night Space Force
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Late Night Space Force" features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon's presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.
