Nature & Human Nature: Works by Bob Ripley
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Recent Acquisitions in Ceramics
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

Cross Your Heart | The Bra: A Product of Socio-Cultural Conflict and Divergence
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Genet Design Gallery
The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

A number of social, political, and technological changes have had a profound impact on the development of modern bra design. Various changes in the role of women in society with origins in the two world wars, an increasingly fast-changing and innovative fashion scene, and changes in feminist attitudes brought about substantial changes in attitudes toward both the bra and female identity. Thus, the bra often took center stage in reflecting some of these momentous changes.

"Cross Your Heart" intends to capture the evolution of a highly complex bra design process via a vintage inspired intimate apparel collection. The designer's innovative bra patternmaking method, "Shin's method," is applied for the creation of the collection.

About the Artist: Kristina Shin, Ph.D., graduated from Chung Nam National University, Korea, with a B.A. in clothing and textiles, an M.A. in fashion merchandising from California State University Los Angeles, and a Ph.D. in fashion design from the University of Northumbria, U.K. She has more than 10 years' experience in both the outerwear and underwear industries as a fashion designer and patternmaker. Prior to joining the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Shin worked for Triumph International Overseas Ltd., one of the world's leading lingerie brands, as a designer.

Shin is the author of Patternmaking for Underwear Design (2nd edition), a textbook that is a comprehensive patternmaking guide aimed at students, educators, and industry. This publication presents innovative bra cup manipulation methods which she developed using a flat patternmaking concept.

Justyna Badach: Land of Epic Battles
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

Peter Parnell's new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo's gothic novel.

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in 15th-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn't the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it's up to Quasimodo to save them all.

A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

La Traviata
Syracuse Opera

Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

In Verdi's touching opera La Traviata (The Fallen Woman), the high-priced courtesan Violetta Valery has made Paris her playground and although she has many well-heeled admirers, she has never truly found love. All of that changes when she meets the young and impetuous Alfredo, who convinces the skeptical Violetta that his love for her is pure and true. When Violetta allows herself to follow her heart, the strict but hypocritical rules of 19th-century society force them apart. A short-lived final reunion between the two lovers showcases Verdi's immense skill as a composer and dramatist. Raquel Gonzalez, who stunned audiences last season as Tatiana in Eugene Onegin, will make her role debut as the ill-fated Violetta. Baritone Todd Thomas (Rigoletto) returns as Alfredo's disapproving but ultimately tender-hearted father Germont. Christian Capocaccia conducts, with stage direction by Stephanie Havey (Rigoletto). Opera newcomers will recognize the plot of La Traviata from the Baz Luhrmann movie-musical it inspired, Moulin Rouge.

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.

Justyna Badach: Land of Epic Battles
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

Nature & Human Nature: Works by Bob Ripley
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

Intimately told, Next to Normal blends the insight of fine drama with the emotional impact of a moving rock score. Often funny and always poignant, the show is a work of grace and power that goes right to the human heart. The New York Times calls Next to Normal a "brave, breathtaking musical..."

Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

The gallery is closed today due to the weather.

The mixed-media drawings in this exhibition focus on the human/animal relationship. They are a testament to the plight of animals when forced to interact with humans. Encroachment, factory farming, medical research, military experiments, fur industry, trophy hunters, puppy mills, and extinction are a few of the topics addressed. Peden Wesley chooses not to show the horrific or to shock, but to address the issues and invite the viewer to reflect, discuss, question, and in turn help to resolve problems.

At the center of this acclaimed Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning musical is a family at once familiar and recognizable, but also coping with its own particular dysfunction. Intimately told, Next to Normal blends the insight of fine drama with the emotional impact of a moving rock score. Often funny and always poignant, the show is a work of grace and power that goes right to the human heart. The New York Times calls Next to Normal a "brave, breathtaking musical..."

Nature & Human Nature: Works by Bob Ripley
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.

Justyna Badach: Land of Epic Battles
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

I Am Not Your Negro
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin's original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Baldwinsville Theatre Guild
Abel Searor, director

First Presbyterian Church of Baldwinsville
64 Oswego St., Baldwinsville

Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film's Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz. Peter Parnell's new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo's gothic novel.

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in 15th-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn't the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it's up to Quasimodo to save them all.

A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.

Flowers for Algernon
Central New York Playhouse
William Edward White, director

Price: $20
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

This is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally disabled man, and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his intelligence fourfold. The operation is tried on Charlie, whose IQ rapidly increases to a genius level, far more intelligent than his teacher, Alice Kinnian, or the doctors who created the operating technique. As Charlie approaches the peak of his brilliance, Algernon shows frightening symptoms of regression. The play becomes a race against time in which Charlie tries to keep his new intelligence long enough to save himself and thus continue what he and Alice have found. This is a different kind of play: poignant, romantic, funny and tragic, but with hope of man's indomitable spirit.

Price: Free

4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Baldwinsville Theatre Guild
Abel Searor, director

First Presbyterian Church of Baldwinsville
64 Oswego St., Baldwinsville

Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film's Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz. Peter Parnell's new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo's gothic novel.

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in 15th-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn't the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it's up to Quasimodo to save them all.

A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.

Flowers for Algernon
Central New York Playhouse
William Edward White, director

Price: $20
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

This is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally disabled man, and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his intelligence fourfold. The operation is tried on Charlie, whose IQ rapidly increases to a genius level, far more intelligent than his teacher, Alice Kinnian, or the doctors who created the operating technique. As Charlie approaches the peak of his brilliance, Algernon shows frightening symptoms of regression. The play becomes a race against time in which Charlie tries to keep his new intelligence long enough to save himself and thus continue what he and Alice have found. This is a different kind of play: poignant, romantic, funny and tragic, but with hope of man's indomitable spirit.

Next to Normal
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

At the center of this acclaimed Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning musical is a family at once familiar and recognizable, but also coping with its own particular dysfunction. Intimately told, Next to Normal blends the insight of fine drama with the emotional impact of a moving rock score. Often funny and always poignant, the show is a work of grace and power that goes right to the human heart. The New York Times calls Next to Normal a "brave, breathtaking musical..."

Music by Tom Kitt; book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey. Choreography by Anthony Salatino and musical direction by Brian Cimmet.
