Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

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

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

All That Jazz: 35 Years of Syracuse Jazz Fest
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Recognizing 35 successful years of Syracuse Jazz Fest, OHA offers a visual exhibit on the history of Jazz Fest. OHA's visual exhibit will feature highlights of the musical festival, from the different venues, to music industry superstars and jazz legends, as well as some of our own homegrown musical talent.

With help from Jazz Fest founder and executive director, Frank Malfitano, the exhibit will be a walk down memory lane for some die-hard local music fans: Dizzy Gillespie's bulging cheeks while playing trumpet, Jean Luc Ponty's electrifying violin, B.B. King's guitar Lucille, Buckwheat Zydeco's accordion, Wynton Marsalis' big band style orchestra, or Kenny G's saxophone; or maybe singing to the songs of Aretha Franklin, the Doobie Brothers, Boz Scaggs, Natalie Cole, or Smokey Robinson. Whatever musical tastes exist in Central New York, Syracuse Jazz Fest has touched almost all of them.

Everson Museum of Art

The first exhibition in the Everson's new ceramics gallery, "A Century of Collecting" celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Museum's first purchase of ceramics for the permanent collection in 1916. From that initial purchase of 32 works by distinguished Arts & Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, the Everson has amassed a premier collection of more than 5000 ceramic pieces, dating from ancient times to the present day. This exhibition presents a survey of works made by key figures in modern and contemporary studio ceramics, tracing the Everson's role as a driving force in shaping attitudes about ceramics as a fine art medium.

Seen and Heard: An Active Commemoration of Women's Suffrage
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the passage of women's suffrage in New York State, Seen and Heard explores the use of the arts as a catalyst for social change and features the work of nine contemporary artists as well as several works from the Everson's collection.

Through this presentation, the exhibition considers the history of social and political activism in the arts and invites visitors to participate in a timely conversation about equal rights and civic engagement. The nine artists — Mildred Beltré, Yvonne Buchanan, Cassils, Lionel Cruet, Stella Marrs, Jessica Posner, Jessica Putnam-Phillips, Kevin Snipes, and Holly Zausner — share a passion for social equality and justice, and their work builds upon the extensive history of art as a form of activism. Working in sculpture, installation, printmaking, ceramics, photography, and video, each artist explores the language and tactics of protest in both subtle and overt ways.

The Photography and Literacy Project is an innovative program positioned under Syracuse University's Coalition of Museums and Art Centers (CMAC) that brings SU students into Syracuse City Schools to develop projects involving photography, video, audio recording, and writing.

This exhibition features work by children selected from five groups that the PAL Project worked with over a nine week period: Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection, middle and high school students; North Side Leaning Center, middle and high school students; Edward Smith School, self-contained classroom, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students; Edward Smith School, 5th grade students; and Say Yes to Education.

Carving Through Borders
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Fifteen artists of diverse immigrant backgrounds were invited to create large-scale woodcuts depicting images and messages inspired by their experiences as documented or undocumented citizens. The themes explore deportation, justice, worker's rights, the immigrant's contributions to society, and the freedom to move across borders. Artists worked for months carving their imagery into large wood panels, utilizing a printmaking process (some working in the medium for the very first time) that has a long history for disseminating information and rallying change.

Professor Holly Greenberg and students from the Syracuse University printmaking program traveled to San Francisco in 2014 and set up a pop-up printmaking studio on the streets of the Mission District. Working side by side, the students and artists printed the large-scale (7'x3') woodcuts on fabric with a two-ton steamroller. The resulting impressions are intended to be used as banners in political marches and protests across the United States where immigration policy change is currently challenged. The result is an amazing set of handmade prints titled Carving Through Borders which illustrate various aspects of migration — detention, deportation, displacement, discrimination — and also communities' resistance and resilience.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

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

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

Carving Through Borders
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Fifteen artists of diverse immigrant backgrounds were invited to create large-scale woodcuts depicting images and messages inspired by their experiences as documented or undocumented citizens. The themes explore deportation, justice, worker's rights, the immigrant's contributions to society, and the freedom to move across borders. Artists worked for months carving their imagery into large wood panels, utilizing a printmaking process (some working in the medium for the very first time) that has a long history for disseminating information and rallying change.

Professor Holly Greenberg and students from the Syracuse University printmaking program traveled to San Francisco in 2014 and set up a pop-up printmaking studio on the streets of the Mission District. Working side by side, the students and artists printed the large-scale (7'x3') woodcuts on fabric with a two-ton steamroller. The resulting impressions are intended to be used as banners in political marches and protests across the United States where immigration policy change is currently challenged. The result is an amazing set of handmade prints titled Carving Through Borders which illustrate various aspects of migration — detention, deportation, displacement, discrimination — and also communities' resistance and resilience.

UVP Summer Review: Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Fireworks (Archives)
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Film starts at dusk. Run time 6:41.

Fireworks (Archives) is an installation-based short-form work by internationally acclaimed Thai filmmaker and installation artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul. This piece acts as a counterpoint and pendant to Apichatpong's latest feature film, Cemetery of Splendor, an official selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Fireworks (Archives) is an abstract and intensely graphic exploration of one of the key settings for Cemetery of Splendor, the Sala Keoku sculpture park, which features religiously inspired, concrete sculptures of animals and gods. In this hallucinatory setting, we see the two central characters of Cemetery of Splendor appear, approach each other, and disappear like specters in the night time garden amid the disorienting flash of fireworks and flares. Fireworks (Archives) acts as a counterpoint to the slow, sun-drenched melancholy at the heart of Cemetery of Splendor.

Queen of Ireland (2015)
Syracuse Contemporary Irish Film Festival

Price: $10
Hosmer Auditorium, Everson Museum
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Directed by Conor Horgan, Queen of Ireland is a wild romping ride of a documentary that follows the captivating drag queen Panti Bliss, as she transcends the role of performer to activist. Part glamorous aunt, part Jessica Rabbit, she is a wittily incisive performer with charisma to burn. Widely regarded as one of the best drag queens in the world, Panti, the creation of Rory O'Neill, became an accidental activist during the referendum campaign for marriage equality, which was passed by popular vote in 2015. In her own words, "a court jester, whose role is to say the un-sayable," Panti dazzles and delights as this documentary shares the tale of LGBTQ rights in Ireland, the 2014 scandal around "Pantigate," and Panti becoming a leader in the fight for equality against homophobia in Ireland and across the world.

There will be a raffle to benefit ACR Health and The Q Center.

Cemetery Secrets: Oakwood Cemetery Ghostwalk

Oakwood Cemetery
940 Comstock Ave., Syracuse

Stroll under Oakwood Cemetery's shade and take in compelling stories from those who have gone before and now rest here during this year's Ghostwalk at Oakwood Cemetery.

Historic Ghostwalks presented by the Onondaga Historical Association are led by guides to locations in neighborhoods, buildings, and cemeteries where actors in costume portray individuals from Onondaga County's past. The "ghosts" reveal their lives in 12- to 15-minute vignettes, giving personal insight to those who have preceded us.

Tours leave every 15 minutes between 6:00 pm and 7:15 pm, and last about 1.5 hours. The size of each group is limited, so reservations are required.

Carving Through Borders
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Fifteen artists of diverse immigrant backgrounds were invited to create large-scale woodcuts depicting images and messages inspired by their experiences as documented or undocumented citizens. The themes explore deportation, justice, worker's rights, the immigrant's contributions to society, and the freedom to move across borders. Artists worked for months carving their imagery into large wood panels, utilizing a printmaking process (some working in the medium for the very first time) that has a long history for disseminating information and rallying change.

Professor Holly Greenberg and students from the Syracuse University printmaking program traveled to San Francisco in 2014 and set up a pop-up printmaking studio on the streets of the Mission District. Working side by side, the students and artists printed the large-scale (7'x3') woodcuts on fabric with a two-ton steamroller. The resulting impressions are intended to be used as banners in political marches and protests across the United States where immigration policy change is currently challenged. The result is an amazing set of handmade prints titled Carving Through Borders which illustrate various aspects of migration — detention, deportation, displacement, discrimination — and also communities' resistance and resilience.

UVP Summer Review: Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Fireworks (Archives)
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Film starts at dusk. Run time 6:41.

Fireworks (Archives) is an installation-based short-form work by internationally acclaimed Thai filmmaker and installation artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul. This piece acts as a counterpoint and pendant to Apichatpong's latest feature film, Cemetery of Splendor, an official selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Fireworks (Archives) is an abstract and intensely graphic exploration of one of the key settings for Cemetery of Splendor, the Sala Keoku sculpture park, which features religiously inspired, concrete sculptures of animals and gods. In this hallucinatory setting, we see the two central characters of Cemetery of Splendor appear, approach each other, and disappear like specters in the night time garden amid the disorienting flash of fireworks and flares. Fireworks (Archives) acts as a counterpoint to the slow, sun-drenched melancholy at the heart of Cemetery of Splendor.

Directed by Alex Fegan, Older Than Ireland is a landmark documentary that tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of 30 Irish men and women aged 100 or over. Often funny and at times poignant, the film explores each centenarian's journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life as a centenarian in modern day Ireland. Reflecting on such key events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, and from the magic of their wedding day to the tragic loss of their loved ones, these centenarians have lived through it all. Having witnessed a century of immense social, political, and technological change each centenarian has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

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

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

Chicago
Central New York Playhouse
Dustin M. Czarny, director

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

In roaring 20s Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap ... until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.

Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

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

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.
