I Too Am America: A Song of Race and Language
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In Ralph Ellison's speech "What Children are Like," he discusses subcultures in African American communities and how they are reflected through language. In conjunction with the powerful words of Langston Hughes, we are inspired to explore the extent of freedom of speech and the American dream. We are reminding the community of the dangers exacerbated by language in the past and the hope that language can inspire for the future.

This show will allow for direct communication through interactive sculpture; to catch a glimpse into other's experiences with candid photography and subject statements; and it will invite the viewer to observe social benchmarks of our past with poignant collages and prints.

Featuring works from Jamaal Barber, Ann "Sole Sister" Johnson, Kleaver Crus/Black Joy Project.

Kristine Potter: The Gray Line
Light Work Gallery

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

"The Gray Line" is a series of portraits that artist Kristine Potter made at West Point Military Academy, which has trained a large number of high-ranking Army officers and eventual U.S. politicians. Raised in a military family, Potter notes that "a very particular kind of patriarchy and folklore associated with military heroism" pervaded her childhood years. In this series of photographs, made between 2005 and 2010 at the height of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Potter attempts to disrupt the binary language that conflict seems to publicly heighten. "I'm not interested in voicing opinions of whether war is right or wrong. It exists. My voice has always focused on the human drama. These are people and they get used in the political sphere. But in the end, they're not symbols, they're humans with complex feelings and lives, and I find that compelling."

Born in Dallas, Texas, Kristine earned both a BFA in Photography and a BA in Art History at the University of Georgia in 2000. From 2000 to 2003, Potter lived and worked as a professional printer in Paris, France. In 2005 she earned her MFA in Photography from Yale University. Potter has exhibited work in Paris, New York City, Miami, Atlanta and Raleigh, NC. Daniel Cooney Fine Art in New York City represents her, with a book, Manifest, forthcoming.

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago.

We are reminding the community of the dangers exacerbated by language in the past and the hope that language can inspire for the future.

This show will allow for direct communication through interactive sculpture; to catch a glimpse into other's experiences with candid photography and subject statements; and it will invite the viewer to observe social benchmarks of our past with poignant collages and prints.

Late Nite Catechism
Famous Artists Broadway Series

Carrier Theater, Mulroy Civic Center

Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back—sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully, to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of "students" (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the "students" for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school, with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.

Late Nite Catechism
Famous Artists Broadway Series

Carrier Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back—sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully, to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of "students" (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the "students" for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school, with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

The other documents an impossible attempt to capture nothingness by mapping its ambiguous state though demarcation and indexing. According to Juarez, the exhibition "explores the meaning of space/place and the human desire to leave tangible remains after death, providing context to a larger physical existence." Juarez is currently an associate professor at Syracuse University's School of Art and a practicing artist. He has exhibited in institutions and museums both nationally and abroad.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

Corpus: Works by Juan Juarez
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

"Corpus" is a multi-media installation by artist Juan Juarez, incorporating photography and video divided into two sections. One explores progressive decay in the aging body/mind using a neglected domicile as symbolic metaphor. The other documents an impossible attempt to capture nothingness by mapping its ambiguous state though demarcation and indexing. According to Juarez, the exhibition "explores the meaning of space/place and the human desire to leave tangible remains after death, providing context to a larger physical existence." Juarez is currently an associate professor at Syracuse University's School of Art and a practicing artist. He has exhibited in institutions and museums both nationally and abroad.

This exhibition is part of the 2017 Syracuse Symposium on "Place."

Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Haunted Ethnography: new experimental documentary" is a group exhibition and related indoor screening event showcasing several recent video and experimental film works by emerging artists exploring the rich but problematic genre of ethnographic documentary as a locus of aesthetic and conceptual innovation in the medium. The exhibition features the work of Carl Elsaesser, Sky Hopinka, and João Vieira Torres. In this selection of works, the boundary between the ethnographic and the auto-ethnographic blurs, and the traditional ethnographic "encounter with the other" becomes troubled, twinned, dislocated, haunted.

This event is part of "UVP 2016-2017: Interzones," a year-long program at UVP and partner organizations that will feature the work of established and emerging artists who explore liminal states, haunted places and the space in between.

Screening begins at dusk.

Of Mice and Men
Central New York Playhouse
Kasey McHale, director

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

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss's promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.
