Phase Changes: Glimpses of the Diaspora
Community Folk Art Center

Price: Free
Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

"Phase Changes: Gilmpses of the Diaspora" is an exhibition designed to highlight the energy and dynamism of the CFAC permanent collection. Much like phases of matter, art of the African Diaspora has evolved to reflect changing social and cultural landscapes through many generations of artists. For example, one can observe water condensing from vapor to a liquid and finally to ice, and know that the end result is still the same compound. Like water, one can note the significant differences between these works of art and recognize that each still embodies the essential components and spirit of African Diasporan art.

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.

Still the One: Douglas Lloyd Makes Portraits of Women Making Change the Old-Fashioned Way
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For this exhibition, ArtRage sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. "Still the One" addresses urgent questions: what exactly is "activism" and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.

Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Pat Bergan, Carol Berrigan, Dolores Brule, Joan N. Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Johnson Colvin, Amy Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo (Miyo) Hirano, Charlotte (Chuckie) Holstein, Joyce Homan, Joyce Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances M. Parks, Dorothy (Dotty) Pearl, Margaret Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany, and Mary Ann Zeppetello.

A photographer for 25 years, Douglas Lloyd has focused on wet plate processing since 2014. Wet plate collodion photography was invented in 1851 and widely revived in recent years for the detail and loveliness of its images. "Still the One" finds a perfect fit between method and subject; one which values age and history.

It's been several years since the ghosts came to visit Scrooge and he is a changed man. He is making up for all that he has missed in life and we're not just talking charity work. He is living large, baby, with expensive wine, fast women, and way too much song! Huzzah! Bob Cratchit and the rest of the Scrooge gravy train have to stop him soon or they are all headed for the Poor House. Join us for Scrooge's Third Annual Holiday Bash and raise a glass to old Fezziwig (just make sure you know what's in it). Cheers!

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.

*POSTPONED* Milkweed
Folkus Project

Price: $15 non-members, $12 members
May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Concert rescheduled to March 16.

Milkweed is the collaboration of three artists—Joseph Alston, guitar and vocals; Jacqualine Colombo, guitar and vocals; and Peter Lister, upright bass and vocals. Without committing to one genre, Milkweed has pulled from many of the great aspects of American music and created their own brand of American song and story telling.

Whether it is bluegrass guitar flat picking, Chicago blues harmonica, Irish ballads, or Jersey shore folk songs, Milkweed weaves together the sounds that make up the rich tapestry of American music history. With their lyrics they set themselves apart from the norm, taking the simple stories of everyday people and telling them through the lens of dreams and what it means to be a human. The root of the band's sound is in the use of three-part harmony to impart a sense of importance and depth to their lyrics that brings the listener into their songs.

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.

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.

*CLOSED TODAY* Still the One: Douglas Lloyd Makes Portraits of Women Making Change the Old-Fashioned Way
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The gallery is closed today due to weather.

For this exhibition, ArtRage sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. "Still the One" addresses urgent questions: what exactly is "activism" and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.

Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Pat Bergan, Carol Berrigan, Dolores Brule, Joan N. Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Johnson Colvin, Amy Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo (Miyo) Hirano, Charlotte (Chuckie) Holstein, Joyce Homan, Joyce Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances M. Parks, Dorothy (Dotty) Pearl, Margaret Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany, and Mary Ann Zeppetello.

A photographer for 25 years, Douglas Lloyd has focused on wet plate processing since 2014. Wet plate collodion photography was invented in 1851 and widely revived in recent years for the detail and loveliness of its images. "Still the One" finds a perfect fit between method and subject; one which values age and history.

Spontaneous Stories: Long-Form Improv
Salt City Improv Theater

Price: $10 (cash only)
Salt City Improv Theatre
Shoppingtown Mall, Sears Wing, Dewitt

If you've been to our shows, you know we occasionally have a long-form improv team as an opening act. If you haven't, then you're probably thinking, "What's this 'Long-Form Improv' of which you speak?" Unlike the "Short-Form" style (as in "Whose Line Is It, Anyway), Long-Form takes an audience idea, and weaves lots of scenes, to tell a longer story. Sort of like a completely improvised play. Our Spontaneous Stories Show is an entire evening dedicated to just Long-Form Improv Comedy.

Headlining the show is SkittleFit, who recently debuted their original long-form structure called "The Sammich." Opening the show will be Flight Risk.

Stretching Boundaries: The Life Work of Sculptor Arlene Abend
ArtRage Gallery

ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

In conjunction with our current exhibition "Still the One: Douglas Lloyd Makes Portraits of Women Making Change the Old-Fashioned Way" we will screen Courtney Rile and Michael Barletta's documentary
about the life and art of Arlene Abend, one of the 26 women honored in the exhibition. The film, originally released in 2010, is reedited with new footage filmed over the last year.

About the film: At nearly 80, sculptor Arlene Abend decided to have a retrospective exhibition. The process forces her to take a hard look at her life, the choices she has made and the art she has created. "I never thought that I would be defined by my work," she reflects on camera. For an added perspective on the woman and her sculpture, the camera turns towards Dick Case (Syracuse Post-Standard Columnist), Mary Cunningham (Teacher, S.U. Early Education and Child Care Center) Bill Delavan (Owner of Delavan Center), Anne Novado Cappuccilli (Curator of Limestone Art and Framing Gallery), Jim Hueber (President of Mack Brothers) as well as Arlene's friend and painter Linda Bigness and Arlene's two children, Les and Tema Abend. The result is a well rounded portrayal of a woman who consistently stretched the boundaries of her life and the materials she worked with to create her art.

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.

Still the One: Douglas Lloyd Makes Portraits of Women Making Change the Old-Fashioned Way
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For this exhibition, ArtRage sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. "Still the One" addresses urgent questions: what exactly is "activism" and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.

Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Pat Bergan, Carol Berrigan, Dolores Brule, Joan N. Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Johnson Colvin, Amy Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo (Miyo) Hirano, Charlotte (Chuckie) Holstein, Joyce Homan, Joyce Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances M. Parks, Dorothy (Dotty) Pearl, Margaret Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany, and Mary Ann Zeppetello.

A photographer for 25 years, Douglas Lloyd has focused on wet plate processing since 2014. Wet plate collodion photography was invented in 1851 and widely revived in recent years for the detail and loveliness of its images. "Still the One" finds a perfect fit between method and subject; one which values age and history.
