Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

Everson Museum of Art

The Dorsky Museum, in partnership with the Everson, is organizing the first retrospective and catalog of American painter Bradley Walker Tomlin (1899-1953) since 1975. This exhibition, including over 40 paintings, works on paper, and printed materials, charts Tomlin's development from art nouveau illustrations of the 1920s to large-scale Abstract Expressionist paintings of the 1950s. The exhibition explores his formative years in Syracuse, early patronage by Condé Nast, and the important role played by the Woodstock art colony. The exhibition originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, State University of New York at New Paltz.

More Real, More a Dream
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Realism and abstraction are the two poles of painting in the 20th century. Drawn from the Everson's collection, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of abstract works from the 20th century to explore the wide variety of formal and compositional decisions artists make when depicting simplified forms, reductive shapes, gestural or precise lines, and selecting a color palette. Primarily comprised of paintings, a selection of sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, video, ceramics, and decorative arts objects are included to draw connections among the various media and approaches to both two and three-dimensional objects.

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.

Rust Echoes
914Works

Price: Free
914Works
914 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Zeke Leonard and Katherine McGerr's "Rust Echoes" is a gallery installation and performance inspired by the sonic landscape of the New York Central Railroad. Performances will be held on March 24, 25 and 26 at 7 p.m.

For 100 years, the New York Central Railroad moved goods and people throughout the Northeast and Midwest; its connectivity helped to forge the economic and social framework of Central New York. The installation consists of five interactive sculptures made of the materials and forms that were common to the railroad. Steel and wood are given a voice, and railroad tools and hardware are used as musical instruments.

This installation is part of an ongoing project, "Salt City Found-Object Instrument Works," an exploration by Leonard into resource usage and community building created through the making, distribution and playing of musical instruments.

I Too Am America: A Song of Race and Language
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In Ralph Ellison's speech "What Children are Like," he discusses subcultures in African American communities and how they are reflected through language. In conjunction with the powerful words of Langston Hughes, we are inspired to explore the extent of freedom of speech and the American dream. We are reminding the community of the dangers exacerbated by language in the past and the hope that language can inspire for the future.

This show will allow for direct communication through interactive sculpture; to catch a glimpse into other's experiences with candid photography and subject statements; and it will invite the viewer to observe social benchmarks of our past with poignant collages and prints.

Featuring works from Jamaal Barber, Ann "Sole Sister" Johnson, Kleaver Crus/Black Joy Project.

Haunted Ethnography: new experimental documentary
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Haunted Ethnography: new experimental documentary" is a group exhibition and related indoor screening event showcasing several recent video and experimental film works by emerging artists exploring the rich but problematic genre of ethnographic documentary as a locus of aesthetic and conceptual innovation in the medium. The exhibition features the work of Carl Elsaesser, Sky Hopinka, and João Vieira Torres. In this selection of works, the boundary between the ethnographic and the auto-ethnographic blurs, and the traditional ethnographic "encounter with the other" becomes troubled, twinned, dislocated, haunted.

This event is part of "UVP 2016-2017: Interzones," a year-long program at UVP and partner organizations that will feature the work of established and emerging artists who explore liminal states, haunted places and the space in between.

Screening begins at dusk.

Rust Echoes Performance
914Works

Price: Free
914Works
914 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Zeke Leonard and Katherine McGerr's "Rust Echoes" is a gallery installation and performance inspired by the sonic landscape of the New York Central Railroad.

For 100 years, the New York Central Railroad moved goods and people throughout the Northeast and Midwest; its connectivity helped to forge the economic and social framework of Central New York. The installation consists of five interactive sculptures made of the materials and forms that were common to the railroad. Steel and wood are given a voice, and railroad tools and hardware are used as musical instruments.

This installation is part of an ongoing project, "Salt City Found-Object Instrument Works," an exploration by Leonard into resource usage and community building created through the making, distribution and playing of musical instruments.

The performance, devised by McGerr and featuring five students from SU:VPA's Department of Drama, presents poems and stories about the railroad in dialogue with the sonic sculptures in the installation.

Open Hand Theater
Peter Fekete, director

Price: Advance: $13 regular, $8 youth/seniors; Door: $15 regular, $10 youth/seniors
International Mask and Puppet Museum
518 Prospect Ave., Syracuse

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. Nora Helmer, wife to Torvald and mother of three children, appears to enjoy living the life of a pampered, indulged child. But as her economic dependence becomes brutally clear, Nora's acceptance of the status quo undergoes a profound change. To the horror of the bewildered Torvald, himself caught in the tight web of a conservative society which demands that he exert strict control, Nora comes to see there is only one possible true course of action. A Doll's House questions the traditional roles of men and women in 19th-century marriage. To many 19th-century Europeans, this was scandalous. The covenant of marriage was considered holy, and to portray it as Ibsen did was controversial.

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss's promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

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.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

A Doll's House
Open Hand Theater
Peter Fekete, director

Price: Advance: $13 regular, $8 youth/seniors; Door: $15 regular, $10 youth/seniors
International Mask and Puppet Museum
518 Prospect Ave., Syracuse

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. Nora Helmer, wife to Torvald and mother of three children, appears to enjoy living the life of a pampered, indulged child. But as her economic dependence becomes brutally clear, Nora's acceptance of the status quo undergoes a profound change. To the horror of the bewildered Torvald, himself caught in the tight web of a conservative society which demands that he exert strict control, Nora comes to see there is only one possible true course of action. A Doll's House questions the traditional roles of men and women in 19th-century marriage. To many 19th-century Europeans, this was scandalous. The covenant of marriage was considered holy, and to portray it as Ibsen did was controversial.

Wicked
Famous Artists Broadway Series

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in.

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz ... but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships ... until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked."

With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place."

Rust Echoes Performance
914Works

Price: Free
914Works
914 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Zeke Leonard and Katherine McGerr's "Rust Echoes" is a gallery installation and performance inspired by the sonic landscape of the New York Central Railroad.

For 100 years, the New York Central Railroad moved goods and people throughout the Northeast and Midwest; its connectivity helped to forge the economic and social framework of Central New York. The installation consists of five interactive sculptures made of the materials and forms that were common to the railroad. Steel and wood are given a voice, and railroad tools and hardware are used as musical instruments.

This installation is part of an ongoing project, "Salt City Found-Object Instrument Works," an exploration by Leonard into resource usage and community building created through the making, distribution and playing of musical instruments.

The performance, devised by McGerr and featuring five students from SU:VPA's Department of Drama, presents poems and stories about the railroad in dialogue with the sonic sculptures in the installation.

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.

Price: Free

115 Otisco St., Syracuse

There will be an opening reception this evening 5:00-9:00 pm, with an artist talk at 6:30 pm.

The work of Leticia Hernandez uses fruits and vegetation as stand-ins for humans to explore the themes of infection, disease, and the decay of the body. Her sculptures are created with a combination of wax, fibers, and latex. The ephemeral nature of these materials lends itself to the disintegration of the body over time. While her work retains many details of the mold from which they were created, their colors gradually change to mimic deeper flesh tones.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

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.

Salt City Abstraction
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Salt City Abstraction features modern and contemporary abstract artists from the Everson's collection that have lived and worked in Central New York, including Juan Cruz, Robert De Niro Sr., Darryl Hughto, Margie Hughto, James Ridlon, Susan Roth, and many others.

Inspired by the museum's concurrent retrospective of Syracuse-born Bradley Walker Tomlin, Salt City Abstraction features the work of modern and contemporary artists that have lived or worked in Central New York. Whether born in the Salt City itself, attending or teaching at a local university or college, or simply choosing to settle in the area, each of the included artists has embraced variations of abstraction while working in their own particular styles and mediums. These 2- and 3-dimensional works drawn from the Everson's collection affirm the museum's longstanding commitment to celebrating regional talent alongside that of national artists, a tradition which extends to the museum's founding more than a century ago. This focused look at abstraction highlights the significant impact that Central New York artists have made to the history of art both local and beyond.

The exhibition originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, State University of New York at New Paltz.

Realism and abstraction are the two poles of painting in the 20th century. Drawn from the Everson's collection, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of abstract works from the 20th century to explore the wide variety of formal and compositional decisions artists make when depicting simplified forms, reductive shapes, gestural or precise lines, and selecting a color palette. Primarily comprised of paintings, a selection of sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, video, ceramics, and decorative arts objects are included to draw connections among the various media and approaches to both two and three-dimensional objects.

Steel and wood are given a voice, and railroad tools and hardware are used as musical instruments.

This installation is part of an ongoing project, "Salt City Found-Object Instrument Works," an exploration by Leonard into resource usage and community building created through the making, distribution and playing of musical instruments.
