9:00 AM - 4:30 PM, September 8



Art Exhibit: Ignacio Asenjo Salcedo: Fossils from Gutenberg Era
LeMoyne College

Price: Free
Wilson Art Gallery, Noreen Reale Falcone Library
LeMoyne College, Syracuse

An advanced civilization in terms of cultural development reached its zenith during the Gutenberg era (second half of the 2nd millennium A.D.) thanks to the record and the massive transmission of knowledge by means of a storage medium that became extinct thousands of years ago: the paper book. This exhibition shows some fossilized objects that were randomly found at the end of that era, thus allowing science to delve into the knowledge that they boast, while letting the visitor take pleasure in the beauty of such a splendorous achievement.

The work Guilbault will show at Gallery 54 is wheel-thrown porcelain that is freehand carved and finished in a variety of food-safe metallic glazes.

Kiehm will show both oil and watercolor painting in the galley. The collection will feature examples of work he's been creating for many years.

The Architecture of Landscape: Works by Karen Thomas-Lillie and Jeremy Randall
Imagine

Imagine
38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles

The landscape of Central NY is an inspirational space for both Thomas-Lillie and Randall, as as Karen looks to "create atmospheric landscapes with oil bar, blurring edges between land, water and sky. Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

Strolling Down Salina Street: 1940-1980

So many Central New Yorkers have fond memories of coming to Syracuse and taking in the shops, the sights, and the sounds of Salina Street, the heart of Downtown. This exhibit re-creates Salina Street in our large first-floor gallery, using photographs and artifacts from the many shops, so that visitors to our downtown museum can "stroll" down the grand old street once again.

From Gilded to Gustav: The Victorian and Arts & Crafts Era in Onondaga County
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

This Victorian Era and Arts & Crafts exhibit will highlight several of Syracuse's major contributors to the Arts and Crafts movement, 1900-1920s, as well as feature many fine examples of period clothing, architecture, and furniture of the Victorian Era in Syracuse, 1837-1901.

In many respects, the Arts and Crafts movement was a rebuke of the ornate styling, designs, and increasing mechanization of production in the Victorian period. The displays will allow for museum patrons to see these contrasting styles up close.

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.

Onondaga Historical Association

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art's 50th anniversary year, "Yoko Ono: Remembering The Future" situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist's landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic practice devoted to fostering and healing human connections, often by exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

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.

Mixed Doubles
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st century. Set over a single day, this richly theatrical mosaic goes beyond the rhythms of the basketball court and the boisterousness of the barbershop. It sheds brilliant light into the hearts and minds of a community of men searching for their most triumphant selves. And what they reveal are the deeply human hopes, dreams, fears, and sensitivities of all men, all people.

Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucía Warck-Meister brings a site-specific installation project to the Point of Contact Gallery and to Syracuse University. Lucía is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call "identity."

For her installation Artemisia, Lucía takes as a springboard the story of Artemisia Gentileschi and how the terrible events she endured during her life as a female artist changed the way she saw herself and dramatically changed the subjects of her paintings.

Lucía now creates a highly ornate space by using red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and glass. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.

This exhibition shows some fossilized objects that were randomly found at the end of that era, thus allowing science to delve into the knowledge that they boast, while letting the visitor take pleasure in the beauty of such a splendorous achievement.

The landscape of Central NY is an inspirational space for both Thomas-Lillie and Randall, as as Karen looks to "create atmospheric landscapes with oil bar, blurring edges between land, water and sky. Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

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.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art's 50th anniversary year, "Yoko Ono: Remembering The Future" situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist's landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic practice devoted to fostering and healing human connections, often by exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

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.

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

Artemisia
Point of Contact Gallery

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

From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucía Warck-Meister brings a site-specific installation project to the Point of Contact Gallery and to Syracuse University. Lucía is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call "identity."

For her installation Artemisia, Lucía takes as a springboard the story of Artemisia Gentileschi and how the terrible events she endured during her life as a female artist changed the way she saw herself and dramatically changed the subjects of her paintings.

Lucía now creates a highly ornate space by using red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and glass. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Mixed Doubles
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

Artemisia

From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucía Warck-Meister brings a site-specific installation project to the Point of Contact Gallery and to Syracuse University. Lucía is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call "identity."

For her installation Artemisia, Lucía takes as a springboard the story of Artemisia Gentileschi and how the terrible events she endured during her life as a female artist changed the way she saw herself and dramatically changed the subjects of her paintings.

Lucía now creates a highly ornate space by using red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and glass. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.

Everson Museum of Art Plaza

"Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future" is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, which will be featuring a contemporaneous survey exhibition of the groundbreaking conceptual artist Yoko Ono's work inside the museum.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

As the sun rises on an ordinary day in New York, seven men are about to discover the extraordinary. Written by Keenan Scott II, one of today's boldest new voices, Thoughts of a Colored Man blends language, music, and dance into a daringly universal new play. Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st century. Set over a single day, this richly theatrical mosaic goes beyond the rhythms of the basketball court and the boisterousness of the barbershop. It sheds brilliant light into the hearts and minds of a community of men searching for their most triumphant selves. And what they reveal are the deeply human hopes, dreams, fears, and sensitivities of all men, all people.

Imagine

The landscape of Central NY is an inspirational space for both Thomas-Lillie and Randall, as as Karen looks to "create atmospheric landscapes with oil bar, blurring edges between land, water and sky. Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

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.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

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

As the sun rises on an ordinary day in New York, seven men are about to discover the extraordinary.

Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st century. Set over a single day, this richly theatrical mosaic goes beyond the rhythms of the basketball court and the boisterousness of the barbershop. It sheds brilliant light into the hearts and minds of a community of men searching for their most triumphant selves.

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.

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art's 50th anniversary year, "Yoko Ono: Remembering The Future" situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist's landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic practice devoted to fostering and healing human connections, often by exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

Mixed Doubles
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

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.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

There will be an opening reception this evening 6:00-8:00 pm.

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

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.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art's 50th anniversary year, "Yoko Ono: Remembering The Future" situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist's landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic practice devoted to fostering and healing human connections, often by exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

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.

Mixed Doubles
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.
