Renegades and Reformers: American Art Pottery
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Since acquiring its first works by Adelaide Alsop Robineau in 1916, the Everson Museum of Art has built one of the finest collections of art pottery in the world. "Renegades and Reformers" revolves around two common personality types among potters: the "renegades" who embarked on highly personal artistic quests that pushed clay and glaze to their limits, and the "reformers," whose modern designs and social attitudes pushed back against Victorian mores.

AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded brings together contemporary American artists who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within a digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Art and Architecture as Evidence
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Presented in collaboration with Syracuse University's School of Visual and Performing Arts and the School of Architecture, "Art and Architecture as Evidence" is an exhibition that investigates the possibility of interpreting art and architecture as evidence — a body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid. Starting with the work of Lawrence Abu Hamdan of Forensic Architecture, the gallery will be reinstalled throughout the semester as a way to investigate the question central to this exhibition: can art or architecture "prove" that an event occurred?

Veterans Creative Arts Festival

Everson Museum of Art

The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival is an annual celebration of the progress and recovery made through that therapy and is a way to recognize the creative achievements of our nation's veterans. The competition begins at a local level, where veterans enrolled in VA health care facilities submit work in visual arts categories ranging from oil painting to leatherwork, as well as categories in the performing arts and creative writing. First, second, and third place entries are awarded for each category, and the competition culminates in a national exhibition featuring selected gold medal winners. A selection of the participants from the Syracuse VA Medical Center are displayed at the Everson.

There she meets and falls in love with an American G.I. named Chris, but they are torn apart by the fall of Saigon. For three years, Kim goes on an epic journey of survival to find her way back to Chris, who has no idea he's fathered a son.

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage

Zooming in on Constantine's symbolist play-within-the-play, de Wet imagines the experience from Nina's perspective: a dreamlike vision of the future, where the hope of escape is linked directly to the potential for the theater itself to rise up and fly away.

Veterans Creative Arts Festival
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Across the country, Department of Veterans Affairs facilities incorporate creative arts into their therapy programs to help veterans recover from and cope with physical and emotional disabilities. The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival is an annual celebration of the progress and recovery made through that therapy and is a way to recognize the creative achievements of our nation's veterans. The competition begins at a local level, where veterans enrolled in VA health care facilities submit work in visual arts categories ranging from oil painting to leatherwork, as well as categories in the performing arts and creative writing. First, second, and third place entries are awarded for each category, and the competition culminates in a national exhibition featuring selected gold medal winners. A selection of the participants from the Syracuse VA Medical Center are displayed at the Everson.

AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded brings together contemporary American artists who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within a digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Keely and Du
Central New York Playhouse
Korrie Taylor, director

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

From the author of Talking With and Vital Signs, here is a volatile drama about abortion. Du, a right-to-life activist, and Keely, a pregnant rape victim Du is confining, transcend their circumstances and the ideological issues that separate them. Keely and Du is a mind-probing issue play with a gripping human face. Who is accountable? What is the extent of individual freedom? What are a rape victim's rights? What are a Christian's realities of procreation? Their passionate stories exist on the extreme edge of everyday reality.
