Woodland Magic
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

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

Photographs by Rod Best and wood carvings by Arlie Howell.

The beauty and magic of autumn is explored and interpreted in the work of two distinctly different but complementary artists. Rod Best's photographs depict the natural phenomenon of fall that amazes us each year with the changes of color in our forests and the greater northeast landscape. Arlie Howell finds the magic of the season within the wood itself, and adds to that a dose of whimsy, by carving spirits and fairy homes from found wood pieces.

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.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

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.

Nathaniel Philbrick
Rosamond Gifford Lecture Series

Price: $35-$60 regular, $10 students
Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Nathaniel Philbrick was born in Boston and grew up in Pittsburgh. He earned a BA in English from Brown University and an MA in America Literature from Duke University, where he was a James B. Duke Fellow. He was Brown University's first Intercollegiate All-American sailor in 1978, the same year he won the Sunfish North Americans in Barrington, RI. After working as an editor at Sailing World magazine, he wrote and edited several books about sailing, including The Passionate Sailor, Second Wind, and Yaahting: A Parody.

In 1986, Philbrick moved to Nantucket with his wife Melissa and their two children. In 1994, he published his first book about the island's history, Away Off Shore, followed by a study of the Nantucket's native legacy, Abram's Eyes. He was the founding director of Nantucket's Egan Maritime Institute and is still a research fellow at the Nantucket Historical Association.

In 2000, Philbrick published the New York Times bestseller In the Heart of the Sea, which won the National Book Award for nonfiction. The book was the basis of the 2015 movie of the same title directed by Ron Howard. The book also inspired a 2001 Dateline special on NBC as well as the 2010 PBS American Experience film Into the Deep by Ric Burns.

His next book, Sea of Glory, was published in 2003 and won the Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt Naval History Prize and the Albion-Monroe Award from the National Maritime Historical Society. The New York Times bestseller Mayflower was a finalist for both the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in History and the Los Angeles Times Book Award, won the Massachusetts Book Award for nonfiction, and was named one the ten "Best Books of 2006" by the New York Times Book Review. Mayflower is currently in development as a limited series on FX.

In 2010, he published the New York Times bestseller The Last Stand, which was named a New York Times Notable book, a 2010 Montana Book Award Honor Book, and a 2011 ALA Notable Book. Philbrick was an on-camera consultant to the 2-hour PBS American Experience film Custer's Last Stand by Stephen Ives. The book is currently being adapted for a ten hour, multi-part television series. Philbrick's Why Read Moby-Dick? (2011) was a finalist for the New England Society Book Award and was named to the 2012 Listen List for Outstanding Audiobook Narration from the Reference and User Services Association, a division of the ALA.

In 2013 Philbrick published the New York Times bestseller, Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution, which was awarded both the 2013 New England Book Award for Non-Fiction and the 2014 New England Society Book Award as well as the 2014 Distinguished Book Award of the Society of Colonial Wars. Bunker Hill has been optioned by Warner Bros. for feature film adaptation with Ben Affleck attached to direct.

Philbrick's next book, Valiant Ambition: George Washington, Benedict Arnold and the Fate of the American Revolution, is slated for publication in May 2016.

Philbrick's writing has appeared in Vanity Fair, The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, and The Boston Globe. He has appeared on The Today Show, the Morning Show, Dateline, PBS's American Experience, C-SPAN, and NPR. He and his wife still live on Nantucket.

Photographs by Rod Best and wood carvings by Arlie Howell.

The beauty and magic of autumn is explored and interpreted in the work of two distinctly different but complementary artists. Rod Best's photographs depict the natural phenomenon of fall that amazes us each year with the changes of color in our forests and the greater northeast landscape. Arlie Howell finds the magic of the season within the wood itself, and adds to that a dose of whimsy, by carving spirits and fairy homes from found wood pieces.

"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.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

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

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.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

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.

Genet Design Gallery
The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In 2016, Syracuse University hired Pentagram, the world's largest independent design consultancy, to create a new visual identity for the 21st century. When it was discovered that there was a unique connection between the University and Frederic W. Goudy, one of America's foremost type designers, and that the Special Collections Research Center was in possession of original Goudy type matrices, the decision was made to incorporate these original artifacts into the project.

"Just Our Type" highlights the new Sherman Book typeface, developed from Goudy's original design by Chester Jenkins of Village Type Foundry, the cornerstone of the University's new brand identity. Through documentary video, didactic timelines and displays, and examples of original Goudy artifacts from the University's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the elements typography through the lens of Syracuse's own signature typeface.

70 Scenes of Halloween
Redhouse

Price: $32
Redhouse
219 S. West St., Syracuse

If you take a David Lynch movie, a domestic drama, and a haunted house than shuffle them together and toss them up in the air, you get this theatrical "52-card pick-up" of a play. As scenes are randomly selected live on stage by the stage manager at every performance, a horror-comedy-tragedy about a marriage dying of familiarity randomly and surprisingly emerges. Playwright Jeffery M. Jones crafted the play while his own marriage seemed to be falling apart creating a fractured autobiography where the outcome depends on the luck of the draw.

It is the story of "stranger things" happening in the suburban home of Joan and Jeff, a young married couple who love each other but no longer desire each other. Their mundane daily irritations have become actual monsters, witches, ghosts, and maybe even killers. The fragmented plot is spun so cleverly that while you're entertained, trying to piece the surprising story together, you'll discover to your delight and horror many tricks and treats in this highly theatrical, frighteningly funny, and hauntingly scary evening. When the doorbell rings this Halloween, will you be brave enough to answer?

TR Ericsson: I Was Born To Bring You Into This World
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

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.

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.

70 Scenes of Halloween
Redhouse

Price: $32
Redhouse
219 S. West St., Syracuse

If you take a David Lynch movie, a domestic drama, and a haunted house than shuffle them together and toss them up in the air, you get this theatrical "52-card pick-up" of a play. As scenes are randomly selected live on stage by the stage manager at every performance, a horror-comedy-tragedy about a marriage dying of familiarity randomly and surprisingly emerges. Playwright Jeffery M. Jones crafted the play while his own marriage seemed to be falling apart creating a fractured autobiography where the outcome depends on the luck of the draw.

It is the story of "stranger things" happening in the suburban home of Joan and Jeff, a young married couple who love each other but no longer desire each other. Their mundane daily irritations have become actual monsters, witches, ghosts, and maybe even killers. The fragmented plot is spun so cleverly that while you're entertained, trying to piece the surprising story together, you'll discover to your delight and horror many tricks and treats in this highly theatrical, frighteningly funny, and hauntingly scary evening. When the doorbell rings this Halloween, will you be brave enough to answer?

Photographs by Rod Best and wood carvings by Arlie Howell.

The beauty and magic of autumn is explored and interpreted in the work of two distinctly different but complementary artists. Rod Best's photographs depict the natural phenomenon of fall that amazes us each year with the changes of color in our forests and the greater northeast landscape. Arlie Howell finds the magic of the season within the wood itself, and adds to that a dose of whimsy, by carving spirits and fairy homes from found wood pieces.

"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.

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.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

In 2016, Syracuse University hired Pentagram, the world's largest independent design consultancy, to create a new visual identity for the 21st century. When it was discovered that there was a unique connection between the University and Frederic W. Goudy, one of America's foremost type designers, and that the Special Collections Research Center was in possession of original Goudy type matrices, the decision was made to incorporate these original artifacts into the project.

"Just Our Type" highlights the new Sherman Book typeface, developed from Goudy's original design by Chester Jenkins of Village Type Foundry, the cornerstone of the University's new brand identity. Through documentary video, didactic timelines and displays, and examples of original Goudy artifacts from the University's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the elements typography through the lens of Syracuse's own signature typeface.

70 Scenes of Halloween
Redhouse

Price: $32
Redhouse
219 S. West St., Syracuse

If you take a David Lynch movie, a domestic drama, and a haunted house than shuffle them together and toss them up in the air, you get this theatrical "52-card pick-up" of a play. As scenes are randomly selected live on stage by the stage manager at every performance, a horror-comedy-tragedy about a marriage dying of familiarity randomly and surprisingly emerges. Playwright Jeffery M. Jones crafted the play while his own marriage seemed to be falling apart creating a fractured autobiography where the outcome depends on the luck of the draw.

It is the story of "stranger things" happening in the suburban home of Joan and Jeff, a young married couple who love each other but no longer desire each other. Their mundane daily irritations have become actual monsters, witches, ghosts, and maybe even killers. The fragmented plot is spun so cleverly that while you're entertained, trying to piece the surprising story together, you'll discover to your delight and horror many tricks and treats in this highly theatrical, frighteningly funny, and hauntingly scary evening. When the doorbell rings this Halloween, will you be brave enough to answer?

Photographs by Rod Best and wood carvings by Arlie Howell.

The beauty and magic of autumn is explored and interpreted in the work of two distinctly different but complementary artists. Rod Best's photographs depict the natural phenomenon of fall that amazes us each year with the changes of color in our forests and the greater northeast landscape. Arlie Howell finds the magic of the season within the wood itself, and adds to that a dose of whimsy, by carving spirits and fairy homes from found wood pieces.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

Everson Museum of Art

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.

"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.

Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

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.

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.

TR Ericsson: I Was Born To Bring You Into This World
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

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.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

70 Scenes of Halloween
Redhouse

Price: $32
Redhouse
219 S. West St., Syracuse

If you take a David Lynch movie, a domestic drama, and a haunted house than shuffle them together and toss them up in the air, you get this theatrical "52-card pick-up" of a play. As scenes are randomly selected live on stage by the stage manager at every performance, a horror-comedy-tragedy about a marriage dying of familiarity randomly and surprisingly emerges. Playwright Jeffery M. Jones crafted the play while his own marriage seemed to be falling apart creating a fractured autobiography where the outcome depends on the luck of the draw.

It is the story of "stranger things" happening in the suburban home of Joan and Jeff, a young married couple who love each other but no longer desire each other. Their mundane daily irritations have become actual monsters, witches, ghosts, and maybe even killers. The fragmented plot is spun so cleverly that while you're entertained, trying to piece the surprising story together, you'll discover to your delight and horror many tricks and treats in this highly theatrical, frighteningly funny, and hauntingly scary evening. When the doorbell rings this Halloween, will you be brave enough to answer?
