Uncommon Views: Photography by Jack Kurz
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

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

For this exhibit, Jack Kurz has captured moments in his photographs that we often miss, perhaps because we are distracted, we don't know where to look, or the subject of our observation is too elusive. Who among us has not had the experience of observing the activity of a butterfly, only to have it fly away before we can fully appreciate its color and pattern? And don't we feel disappointment when we realize that a bird has moved so quickly that we missed its capture of prey? How then do wildlife photographers manage to produce their amazing photos? "You just have to be patient," is the answer that Kurz will give you. Those who see Jack Kurz's photographs will enjoy the sharp focus in his images, the beautiful color, and the stories of our natural world that each image conveys.

Socially Gifted: 75 Years of Gifts from the Social Art Club
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Founded in 1875, the Social Art Club is a women's club dedicated to the study of art in a group setting. The Club has an extensive history of supporting the Everson, including financial support for the acquisition of some of the Museum's most iconic pieces, such as Adrian Saxe's Untitled vessel from 1980, which graces the cover of the Museum's American Ceramics catalog. Over the past decade, the Social Art Club's gifts have strengthened the Everson's connections to Central New York through donations of work by indigenous and regional artists.

Key Figures: Representational Ceramics 1932-1972
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Dating back to the Ceramic National exhibitions, which began in 1932, the Everson has a rich history of supporting artists who explore the figure. Artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, and Waylande Gregory routinely received awards and critical acclaim for their work. "Key Figures" examines the larger-than-life artists who shaped an art movement, and features select works from a new generation of artists who are building on this legacy by using the figure to explore identity, narrative, and allegory.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center

Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with ArtRage Gallery. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada, for almost 20 years. The work focuses on the matriarch Lena Nottaway and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with Skä•noñh – Great Law of Peace Center. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

For this exhibit, Jack Kurz has captured moments in his photographs that we often miss, perhaps because we are distracted, we don't know where to look, or the subject of our observation is too elusive. Who among us has not had the experience of observing the activity of a butterfly, only to have it fly away before we can fully appreciate its color and pattern? And don't we feel disappointment when we realize that a bird has moved so quickly that we missed its capture of prey? How then do wildlife photographers manage to produce their amazing photos? "You just have to be patient," is the answer that Kurz will give you. Those who see Jack Kurz's photographs will enjoy the sharp focus in his images, the beautiful color, and the stories of our natural world that each image conveys.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Uncommon Views: Photography by Jack Kurz
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

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

For this exhibit, Jack Kurz has captured moments in his photographs that we often miss, perhaps because we are distracted, we don't know where to look, or the subject of our observation is too elusive. Who among us has not had the experience of observing the activity of a butterfly, only to have it fly away before we can fully appreciate its color and pattern? And don't we feel disappointment when we realize that a bird has moved so quickly that we missed its capture of prey? How then do wildlife photographers manage to produce their amazing photos? "You just have to be patient," is the answer that Kurz will give you. Those who see Jack Kurz's photographs will enjoy the sharp focus in his images, the beautiful color, and the stories of our natural world that each image conveys.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center

Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with ArtRage Gallery. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Cree Hunters of Mistassini
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Photographer Michael Greenlar will be our host.

Cree Hunters of Mistassini is an award-winning documentary film from 1974 that follows a group of three Cree families from the Mistassini region of Quebec, as they set up a winter hunting camp near James Bay and Ungava Bay. The film draws parallels to the lives of those documented in Michael Greenlar's exhibition "Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin." For thousands of years, the Cree Indians of James Bay inhabited the northern Quebec forests, originally gathering wild rice, and later hunting, fishing, and trapping. Traditionally, small groups of families spent the winter months together in the bush, subsisting on moose, beaver, deer, wild geese and caribou. Filmmakers Boyce Richardson and Tony Ianzelo traveled to Mistassini to speak with Cree friends, pledging that their film would allow Native people to tell their own stories, and filming went ahead with three hunting families in the bush, over five months from 1972 to 1973.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, Cree Hunters of Mistassini received the award for Best Documentary at the Canadian Film Awards as well as the Robert Flaherty Award for best one-off documentary from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Screened with permission from the National Film Board of Canada.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada, for almost 20 years. The work focuses on the matriarch Lena Nottaway and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with Skä•noñh – Great Law of Peace Center. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Uncommon Views: Photography by Jack Kurz
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

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

For this exhibit, Jack Kurz has captured moments in his photographs that we often miss, perhaps because we are distracted, we don't know where to look, or the subject of our observation is too elusive. Who among us has not had the experience of observing the activity of a butterfly, only to have it fly away before we can fully appreciate its color and pattern? And don't we feel disappointment when we realize that a bird has moved so quickly that we missed its capture of prey? How then do wildlife photographers manage to produce their amazing photos? "You just have to be patient," is the answer that Kurz will give you. Those who see Jack Kurz's photographs will enjoy the sharp focus in his images, the beautiful color, and the stories of our natural world that each image conveys.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Founded in 1875, the Social Art Club is a women's club dedicated to the study of art in a group setting. The Club has an extensive history of supporting the Everson, including financial support for the acquisition of some of the Museum's most iconic pieces, such as Adrian Saxe's Untitled vessel from 1980, which graces the cover of the Museum's American Ceramics catalog. Over the past decade, the Social Art Club's gifts have strengthened the Everson's connections to Central New York through donations of work by indigenous and regional artists.

Key Figures: Representational Ceramics 1932-1972
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Dating back to the Ceramic National exhibitions, which began in 1932, the Everson has a rich history of supporting artists who explore the figure. Artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Edris Eckhardt, and Waylande Gregory routinely received awards and critical acclaim for their work. "Key Figures" examines the larger-than-life artists who shaped an art movement, and features select works from a new generation of artists who are building on this legacy by using the figure to explore identity, narrative, and allegory.

Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin: Photographs of Michael Greenlar
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center

Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with ArtRage Gallery. Please plan on visiting both venues to enjoy the complete experience of this photography series. You'll see different images at each gallery.

Rodrigo Valenzuela: American Type
Light Work Gallery

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

Rodrigo Valenzuela's work boldly addresses themes of labor, power, and representation. For a Chilean artist living in America at a moment in which the president of the United States continues pressing for a border wall, the underlying narrative of Valenzuela's work — of immigration and the struggles of the working class — is as charged as ever.

The title of the exhibition, American Type, refers to a 1955 essay in which art critic Clement Greenberg frames the work of abstract expressionist painters such as Pollock, Kline, Motherwell, and Rothko as distinctly American. Greenberg proposed that post-war American painting was more about the act of painting itself than about any complex idea of representation. Valenzuela finds it interesting to challenge this concept and, as he puts it, to contemplate "how much the absence of content has become the American gold." He doesn't argue that abstraction is necessarily without subject or emotion, but Valenzuela questions Greenberg and art world elitism more generally by making his own subversive abstractions that he imbues with social-political meaning.

Valenzuela's approach to representation in his work draws our attention to the extensive labor of his artistic process. Every aspect of his work shows a trace of his own labor, from the building of studio assemblages, to the photographic steps that lead to the final prints. Even the wooden frames that hold the work have been cut, assembled, and painted by his hand. Labor is inherent in the making of all art, but for Valenzuela it becomes a compelling central subject.

Romance Films: Midnight (1939) and Maurice (1987)
ArtRage Gallery

Price: $5 suggested donation
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

6:00 pm: Midnight (1939)
Directed by Mitchell Liesen, written by Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett, and starring Claudette Colbert, Don Ameche, John Barrymore, and Mary Astor.

Every Cinderella has a midnight! In this screwball fairytale comedy, down-on-her-luck Bronx showgirl Eve Peabody finds herself stranded in Paris. Trying to ditch a cab driver who is determined to be Prince Charming, Eve mistakenly wanders into a high-society salon, only to be taken under the wing of a distinguished millionaire. But this is a fairy godfather with a plan: he wants Eve to break up his wife's affair with a gigolo. Deftly skirting censorship restraints of the day, the film sparkles with no-nonsense sophisticated wit, sharp plot twists and a first-rate cast. In 2013, Midnight was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

8:00 pm: Maurice (1987)
Directed by James Ivory, based on the novel by E.M. Forster, and starring James Wilby and Hugh Grant.

Set in the rigidity of pre-World War I English society, Maurice tells the story of Maurice and Clive who find themselves falling in love in Cambridge. In a time and place when being gay means imprisonment, the two must cloak their feelings in secrecy. But when a friend is disgraced and jailed for "the unspeakable vice of the Greeks," Clive abandons his forbidden love to marry a young woman. Maurice, however, keeps struggling with his identity. But all that changes when he is seduced by an appealing and adoring young male servant, an event that will change Maurice's life and his understanding of the meaning of love.
