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.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Everson Museum of Art

From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

All About My Mother (2000)
ArtRage Gallery

ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar is famed for exploring outcast relationships and the real meaning of family. This acclaimed film spins around the curiosities of unorthodox familial life framed by a series of sudden crises faced by Manuela and her circle. Manuela is a single mother who has raised her son Esteban by herself. At 17 Esteban wants only to discover the identity of his father, which has been carefully hidden by Manuela. Almovodar offers a dramatic yet comic, sometimes bawdy tapestry of sisterhood, searching hearts, and people crossing the gender divide. It is a poignant film brimming with sincerity and compassion which is no small triumph considering two of its main characters are transvestite hookers, another is a pregnant nun, and two more are battling lesbians. And all ironically express family values. Cast includes Cecilia Roth and Penelope Cruz. Oscar: Best Foreign Language Film; Cannes Festival: Best Film.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes

Price: $5

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.

Jerome Witkin: This Time, This World
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Jerome Witkin is one of the most important figurative painters alive today. After studying art in both the U.S. and Europe, he became a professor of art at Syracuse University in 1971.

John Handley, Director of the Stephen Austin University Art Galleries, writes "Witkin's art is not for the faint of heart. Although he renders in pencil and paint as skillfully and theatrically as Caravaggio or Rembrandt—he is a master of drama and light—his work often carries the blunt force of a wartime journalist."

His biographer, Sherry Chayat, once noted that when Witkin enters his studio, "... he leaps into the dark realm of political repression, the Holocaust, the private wars of domesticity, the collision of recurrent nightmares and the evening news."

In this his first exhibition at ArtRage, he will offer us a stunning glimpse of his artwork dealing with a range of social issues that, as he put it, "insisted on being painted."

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Uffizi, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery

Rafael Trelles, from Santurce, Puerto Rico, is a painter, printmaker, installation artist, stage and costume designer. Trelles completed his Bachelors' Degree at the University of Puerto Rico, and his Doctorate from Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas (Academia San Carlos). In the mid-1980s, Trelles resided in the Canary Islands, where he produces a series of paintings titled The Universal Tarot, resembling his later works use of mysticism and magic. Returning to Puerto Rico in 1986, he dedicated himself to his art and to the artist group El Alfil (Image and Word), which he co-founded in 1994. Trelles also does public art using a pressure hose on walls, sidewalks, and other surfaces, a genre he calls "urban graphic art" seen in the 2007 documentary En Concreto (On Concrete). The film illustrates this experimental graphic work originally designed for abandoned sectors of worldwide cities.

In "The Imagined Word," Trelles employs references to Hispanic mythology and world literature. Influenced by surrealist Max Ernst, he brings the viewer on a voyage to an esoteric world of characters in dreamlike settings, where solitude reigns.

Dionne Lee: Trap and Lean-to
Light Work Gallery

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

Oakland, California-based artist Dionne Lee employs video, collage, photography, and sculpture to explore American landscape and her place within its complex history. As an African American woman, she sees the natural world as both a place of refuge and tranquility, but also the location of racial violence, danger, and vulnerability. More broadly, her work acknowledges the terror of climate change, mass migration, and humanity's ongoing drama of survival. Duality often surfaces in work where she notes that "two things can be true at once."

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.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon's presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner's investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

Raphael Trelles: The Imagined Word
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Rafael Trelles, from Santurce, Puerto Rico, is a painter, printmaker, installation artist, stage and costume designer. Trelles completed his Bachelors' Degree at the University of Puerto Rico, and his Doctorate from Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas (Academia San Carlos). In the mid-1980s, Trelles resided in the Canary Islands, where he produces a series of paintings titled The Universal Tarot, resembling his later works use of mysticism and magic. Returning to Puerto Rico in 1986, he dedicated himself to his art and to the artist group El Alfil (Image and Word), which he co-founded in 1994. Trelles also does public art using a pressure hose on walls, sidewalks, and other surfaces, a genre he calls "urban graphic art" seen in the 2007 documentary En Concreto (On Concrete). The film illustrates this experimental graphic work originally designed for abandoned sectors of worldwide cities.

In "The Imagined Word," Trelles employs references to Hispanic mythology and world literature. Influenced by surrealist Max Ernst, he brings the viewer on a voyage to an esoteric world of characters in dreamlike settings, where solitude reigns.

Black Subjects in Modern Media Photography: Works from the George R. Rinhart Collection
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition features 145 photographs from one of the largest private collections in the nation, offering a glimpse of the complexity and paradoxes of Black visual modernity. Pictures featuring varied themes — Cities, Politics, Work, Kinship, School, Religion, Leisure, Childhood, Colonies, and Portraits — welcome viewers to consider how people, places, and practices were presented as Black subjects to mass audiences via newspapers, magazines, documentary projects, libraries, and advertising. They raise questions such as how photographs composed Black subjects? How and to what extent did Black people present themselves as subjects in settings they chose to occupy, in venues they did not control, and in regimes that rendered them subject peoples? How do titles, captions, and frames limit or alter the focus and contexts of an image? Such inquiries engage a photograph's capacity to convey meaning and invite new interpretations of what it meant to create, be, and see a modern Black subject.

Curated by Joan Bryant, associate professor of African American Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University.

Please note, this exhibition includes text and photographs that document inequality, racism, and violence. Experiencing such material might be challenging for some viewers. We present it with the aim of promoting historically-informed considerations of social relations and justice.

Parking for weekend and evening visitors is in Q4 lot on College Place. Notify the attendant that you are visiting the SUArt Galleries.

Masterpieces of 17th-Century Dutch Painting from Regional Collections
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

It has been estimated that in The Netherlands over the course of the 17th century, approximately two million paintings were created. This astonishing number reflects the prosperity of the small country that was known at that time as the Dutch Republic. It may have been small compared to its European neighbors but the Dutch Republic was a major power owing to its strong economy and far-reaching mercantile activities. Needless to say, in this prosperous atmosphere painting flourished thanks to sizeable numbers of talented masters, many of whom specialized in the rendition of specific subject matter. Dutch painters portrayed their surrounding world in landscapes, portraits, still-life, and genre paintings (scenes of daily life) and they are still acclaimed today for having done so. Indeed, the ability of their seemingly unassuming yet celebrated pictures to evoke daily existence has led to the recognition of 17th-century painting as a true Golden Age of Dutch art. However, like their European counterparts, Dutch masters just as often focused their efforts on the depiction of subjects drawn from the Bible or from classical mythology.

This exhibition provides a small yet impressive sample of the fruits of their labors. Visitors to this show may not recognize all of the names of the painters whose creations are on display here. Nevertheless, their work provides a glimpse into the wide-ranging subject matter and uncompromisingly high quality of 17th-century Dutch art.

Parking for weekend and evening visitors is in Q4 lot on College Place. Notify the attendant that you are visiting the SUArt Galleries. Parking is on a space available basis and may be restricted during events held at the Carrier Dome. If spaces are not available in Q4 the attendant will direct you to the nearest lot.

Making History, Justifying Conquest: Depictions of Native Americans in American Book Company Textbooks
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

As the USA rose in world power in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a government-led emphasis emerged in promoting a national history in which the conquest of Native peoples was justified. The American Book Company, one of the largest textbook publishers of the time, played a vital role in this process, producing many textbooks that contained illustrated histories featuring Native peoples. A vast audience of impressionable, young minds encountered these textbooks which rely on images mythologizing White heroism and conveying Native savagery and primitivism through scenes such as Daniel Carter Beard's The Perils and Pleasures of the Wilderness—Daniel Boone, circa 1900. These books reflected and shaped widespread rhetoric of Euro-American superiority, which sought to justify the colonization of Native lands and the conquest of Native peoples. This exhibition deconstructs the versions of history and Native peoples presented by the illustrations through four prominent themes found in ABC publications: contact, the construction of history, assimilation and violence, and the vanishing Indian. To further explain the different views, quotes from Native artists, writers, and scholars are included in each section. The authoritative, educational messages communicated in the American Book Company textbooks ensured a lasting legacy for dominant narratives of American history that still marginalize Native peoples today. However, by calling attention to these images and placing them in a more accurate context, this exhibition asks us to consider how images are used and misused to construct historical narratives.

Parking for weekend and evening visitors is in Q4 lot on College Place. Notify the attendant that you are visiting the SUArt Galleries. Parking is on a space available basis and may be restricted during events held at the Carrier Dome. If spaces are not available in Q4 the attendant will direct you to the nearest lot.
