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.

In the Arts and Crafts Style: Woodblock Prints by Laura Wilder
Dalton's American Decorative Arts

Dalton's American Decorative Arts
1931 James St., Syracuse

After getting her degree in art and spending several years as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura discovered the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. Inspired, she learned printmaking, and submitted her vintage-style block prints to the Roycroft Renaissance Jury. Approved, she became a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, and was soon elevated to Master Artisan status signifying very high quality design and execution. Twenty years later, she continues to make block prints and paintings inspired by the beauty in nature, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and the sweet, simple things in life.

Laura has won many awards and prestigious commissions for her work, which can be seen at shows, in many galleries and shops nationwide, and at www.laurawilder.com.

John Edmonds: Anonymous
Light Work Gallery

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

In his exhibition, Anonymous, John Edmonds combines two distinct series of portraits, both of which conceal the identities of their subjects. The first series comprises striking formal studies of individuals wearing hoods on the street, photographed from behind. We can quickly read this suite of images as a statement on the unjust death of Trayvon Martin and how individuals of color face issues of racism, safety, and injustice in systemic ways. "All the work that I make is from a very personal place," says Edmonds of his process. "It starts with me." Edmonds further embeds himself in this work by photographing his subjects wearing his own hoodies and jackets. With little visual clues to guide us, we may only learn from the artist that the obscured individuals in fact vary in race, gender, and age.

In contrast to the charged public space that Edmonds considers with these pictures, a second series of portraits celebrates blackness and beauty through private and sensual pictures of men wearing du-rags. Once again, Edmonds photographs his subjects from directly behind them. We can trace the du-rag's origin to the head-wraps worn by female slaves during the antebellum period, and later used to preserve hairstyles, but today both men and women wear du-rags as a symbol asserting cultural pride. A melancholy underlies these portraits, though a majestic and spiritual quality also comes forward, calling to mind totems and religious iconography. A softness and warmth emanates from the colors and folds of the cloth. Edmonds exhibits these portraits on a larger-than-life, monumental scale, implying both nobility and strength, while also subtly undermining the grandiosity by printing on delicate, flowing silk.

Recent work by artists Todd Conover and Ann Clarke will be exhibited. Conover and Clarke are both faculty members at VPA. The exhibition is designed by Jeffrey Mayer, also a faculty member.

Conover and Clarke share a passion—arguably obsession—for their respective materials, metal and fibers, as well as the practice of studio work itself. Both artists are also inspired by nature and memory inclusive of references to the history of the materials and techniques they use.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Boite-en-Valise
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Six established, mid-career, and emerging artists from England and USA, in collaboration with three curators and audiences in Portsmouth, England, are developing new work for transport and presentation in Syracuse, previously in Venice, Italy, and Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

The artists are Yvonne Buchanan (USA), Mia Delve (UK), Tom Hall (UK/USA), Mika Mollenkopf (USA), Harold Offeh (UK), Susan Stockwell (UK). The curators are Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex Gallery, UK; Stephanie James, Director of the School of Art, VPA; Mark Segal, the artists agency, UK.

The artists have been invited to contribute to an international project, developing networks and forums for collaboration for contemporary arts practitioners, audiences in New York State and the south of England through the international art hub of the Venice Biennale.

Boîte-en-Valise encourages transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and cross-fertilization of artistic practice.

Each artist is transporting the means to generate their new work, begun by working with audiences over several days in Syracuse, in a normal sized suitcase. To be transported as luggage on a normal flight, train, or bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venues.

The six artists bring together works including sculpture, performance, video, photography, and sound as well as interventions and conversations.

Syracuse University provides an international critical space for artists and curators to consider the project, while connecting back via live-streaming to the audiences engaged in the initial development and production phase in Portsmouth.

Price: Free

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.

John Edmonds: Anonymous
Light Work Gallery

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

In his exhibition, Anonymous, John Edmonds combines two distinct series of portraits, both of which conceal the identities of their subjects. The first series comprises striking formal studies of individuals wearing hoods on the street, photographed from behind. We can quickly read this suite of images as a statement on the unjust death of Trayvon Martin and how individuals of color face issues of racism, safety, and injustice in systemic ways. "All the work that I make is from a very personal place," says Edmonds of his process. "It starts with me." Edmonds further embeds himself in this work by photographing his subjects wearing his own hoodies and jackets. With little visual clues to guide us, we may only learn from the artist that the obscured individuals in fact vary in race, gender, and age.

In contrast to the charged public space that Edmonds considers with these pictures, a second series of portraits celebrates blackness and beauty through private and sensual pictures of men wearing du-rags. Once again, Edmonds photographs his subjects from directly behind them. We can trace the du-rag's origin to the head-wraps worn by female slaves during the antebellum period, and later used to preserve hairstyles, but today both men and women wear du-rags as a symbol asserting cultural pride. A melancholy underlies these portraits, though a majestic and spiritual quality also comes forward, calling to mind totems and religious iconography. A softness and warmth emanates from the colors and folds of the cloth. Edmonds exhibits these portraits on a larger-than-life, monumental scale, implying both nobility and strength, while also subtly undermining the grandiosity by printing on delicate, flowing silk.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

TR Ericsson uses the story of his mother to present a searing, soft, and complex portrait of post-industrial life in America. Ericsson constructs his work using traditional art materials such as canvas, bronze, photography, and clay as well as video, found objects, and heirlooms taken from his family archives. This exhibition is a specific reinterpretation of Crackle & Drag, Ericsson's ongoing project started during the years following his mother's suicide in 2003.

"I Was Born To Bring You Into This World" begins as an intimate encounter with an artist's family archive and becomes a potent opportunity to reflect and scrutinize the trials and tribulations of our own lives.

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

Six established, mid-career, and emerging artists from England and USA, in collaboration with three curators and audiences in Portsmouth, England, are developing new work for transport and presentation in Syracuse, previously in Venice, Italy, and Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

The artists are Yvonne Buchanan (USA), Mia Delve (UK), Tom Hall (UK/USA), Mika Mollenkopf (USA), Harold Offeh (UK), Susan Stockwell (UK). The curators are Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex Gallery, UK; Stephanie James, Director of the School of Art, VPA; Mark Segal, the artists agency, UK.

The artists have been invited to contribute to an international project, developing networks and forums for collaboration for contemporary arts practitioners, audiences in New York State and the south of England through the international art hub of the Venice Biennale.

Boîte-en-Valise encourages transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and cross-fertilization of artistic practice.

Each artist is transporting the means to generate their new work, begun by working with audiences over several days in Syracuse, in a normal sized suitcase. To be transported as luggage on a normal flight, train, or bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venues.

The six artists bring together works including sculpture, performance, video, photography, and sound as well as interventions and conversations.

Syracuse University provides an international critical space for artists and curators to consider the project, while connecting back via live-streaming to the audiences engaged in the initial development and production phase in Portsmouth.

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.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases.

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.

1940s Radio Hour
Central New York Playhouse
Patricia Catchouny, director

Price: $25
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

A different time is evoked in this marvelously theatrical and winning show, a live broadcast of a The Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor's Algonquin Room on December 21, 1942. The spirit of that bygone era when the world was at war and pop music meant "Strike Up the Band" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" (both are in this show) is accurately captured as the harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.

"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.

1931 James St., Syracuse

After getting her degree in art and spending several years as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura discovered the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement.

1940s Radio Hour
Central New York Playhouse
Patricia Catchouny, director

Price: $28
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

A different time is evoked in this marvelously theatrical and winning show, a live broadcast of a The Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor's Algonquin Room on December 21, 1942. The spirit of that bygone era when the world was at war and pop music meant "Strike Up the Band" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" (both are in this show) is accurately captured as the harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.

In the Arts and Crafts Style: Woodblock Prints by Laura Wilder
Dalton's American Decorative Arts

Dalton's American Decorative Arts
1931 James St., Syracuse

After getting her degree in art and spending several years as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura discovered the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. Inspired, she learned printmaking, and submitted her vintage-style block prints to the Roycroft Renaissance Jury. Approved, she became a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, and was soon elevated to Master Artisan status signifying very high quality design and execution. Twenty years later, she continues to make block prints and paintings inspired by the beauty in nature, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and the sweet, simple things in life.

Laura has won many awards and prestigious commissions for her work, which can be seen at shows, in many galleries and shops nationwide, and at www.laurawilder.com.

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.

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.

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.

"I Was Born To Bring You Into This World" begins as an intimate encounter with an artist's family archive and becomes a potent opportunity to reflect and scrutinize the trials and tribulations of our own lives.

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.

In the Arts and Crafts Style: Woodblock Prints by Laura Wilder
Dalton's American Decorative Arts

Dalton's American Decorative Arts
1931 James St., Syracuse

After getting her degree in art and spending several years as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura discovered the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. Inspired, she learned printmaking, and submitted her vintage-style block prints to the Roycroft Renaissance Jury. Approved, she became a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, and was soon elevated to Master Artisan status signifying very high quality design and execution. Twenty years later, she continues to make block prints and paintings inspired by the beauty in nature, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and the sweet, simple things in life.

Laura has won many awards and prestigious commissions for her work, which can be seen at shows, in many galleries and shops nationwide, and at www.laurawilder.com.

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.
