The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky
Light Work Gallery

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

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

There will be a special kids' reception for the schools' entire enrollments today 3:00-7:00 pm.

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

Kala Stein: Form & Plenty
Gandee Gallery

Gandee Gallery
7846 Main St., Fabius

Kala Stein's exhibition Form and Plenty showcases her innovative ceramics based on archetypal utilitarian forms, like vases, bottles, and cups. By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a single vessel. Stein says of her work, "Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself."

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, NY.

Time, Again Time: Works by Ana Tiscornia
Point of Contact Gallery

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

In "Time, again time," the artist reflects on ordered fragments of a disordered world. An activist and renowned Latin American artist, Ana Tiscornia brings a mixed-media installation that curator Pedro Cuperman describes as "the outcome of a tale, where we have a fragmented world, where the pieces are somehow geometrically organic, logical... a kind of architecture of catastrophe. It is about the artist's obsession with organizing her world after having lived through the tragedies of military dictatorships in her home land, and the present catastrophes, wars that we endure in our own time. Ana's work demands from the viewer a sort of reconstruction, reintegration of the work, and our world.

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

In her first US museum solo show, New York City-based Japanese artist Noriko Ambe will create a new site-specific installation in the main gallery reflecting the tragic 2011 events in Japan through the use of video projections and her signature large-scale paper cutouts that evoke waves.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.

RESOURCED/response: The Art of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative and SU Fiber Arts
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition is a look into the environmental devastation that plagues the earth and its beings. It is also a look into the environmental justice movement that works to correct and heal the destruction. RESOURCED is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative in 2010, focusing on resource extraction and climate issues, which will be used to help ask important questions about our environment. At the beginning of the spring semester 2012, students from the introduction to fibers course at Syracuse University viewed images from RESOURCED.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

First sexual experiences are one of the few things that almost every person on this planet has in common, whether you're Paris Hilton or P. Diddy, George Clooney or George Washington, yet we rarely talk about them. Until now...

In 1998, a decade before blogging began, a website was created that allowed people to anonymously share their own true stories about their First Times. The website became an instant phenomenon as over 40,000 stories poured in from around the globe that were silly, sweet, absurd, funny, shy, sexy and everything in between.

And now, these true stories and all of the unique characters in them are brought to life by four amazing actors in the acclaimed play, My First Time, by Ken Davenport, producer of Altar Boyz and creator of The Awesome 80s Prom.

This show is intended for mature audiences only.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

In her first US museum solo show, New York City-based Japanese artist Noriko Ambe will create a new site-specific installation in the main gallery reflecting the tragic 2011 events in Japan through the use of video projections and her signature large-scale paper cutouts that evoke waves.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

My First Time
Rarely Done Productions
Dan Tursi, director

Price: $20
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

First sexual experiences are one of the few things that almost every person on this planet has in common, whether you're Paris Hilton or P. Diddy, George Clooney or George Washington, yet we rarely talk about them. Until now...

In 1998, a decade before blogging began, a website was created that allowed people to anonymously share their own true stories about their First Times. The website became an instant phenomenon as over 40,000 stories poured in from around the globe that were silly, sweet, absurd, funny, shy, sexy and everything in between.

And now, these true stories and all of the unique characters in them are brought to life by four amazing actors in the acclaimed play, My First Time, by Ken Davenport, producer of Altar Boyz and creator of The Awesome 80s Prom.

This show is intended for mature audiences only.

The Brothers Size
Syracuse Stage
Timothy Bond, director

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an exciting new voice in American Theatre and his award-winning The Brothers Size proves why. In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

As You Like It
Syracuse University Drama Department
Ralph Zito, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

At the heart of this joyful play is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest comic heroine, Rosalind. As a woman disguised as a man, she exists not fully as either but in between, where she can relish the privilege of speaking with a man's authority informed by a woman's heart, a combination she needs in guiding the varied denizens of the Forest of Arden in the hey-nonny-no of love. As the great sage writes: "To be in love, and yet to see and feel the absurdity of it, one needs to go school with Rosalind." And school is rarely, if ever, this much fun. Sweet lovers love the spring!

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

Kala Stein: Form & Plenty
Gandee Gallery

Gandee Gallery
7846 Main St., Fabius

Kala Stein's exhibition Form and Plenty showcases her innovative ceramics based on archetypal utilitarian forms, like vases, bottles, and cups. By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a single vessel. Stein says of her work, "Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself."

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, NY.

Catherine Russell
WAER-FM

Price: $20
Palace Theater
2384 James St., Syracuse

Catherine Russell will be performing music off her most recent album, "Strictly Romancin'," her fourth for World Village/Harmonia Mundi records.

Russell is a native New Yorker born to musical royalty. Her father was a pioneering pianist, composer and bandleader, and Louis Armstrong's long-time sidekick. Her mother, Carline Ray, is a bassist, guitarist and vocalist, who has performed with Mary Lou Williams and International Sweethearts of Rhythm. Russell's professional life began early. After graduating with honors from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, she embarked upon a rich journey backing artists like Carrie Smith, Steely Dan, David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Michael Feinstein and Rosanne Cash.

Her 2006 debut album, "Cat," garnered rave reviews, paving the way for her 2008 sophomore release, "Sentimental Streak." Russell has been a guest on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," PBS's "Tavis Smiley Show," and a half dozen shows for NPR. She has won a prestigious German Record Critics' Award and a Hot Club of France Discovery Award. Russell's third album, "Inside This Heart of Mine," reached No. 1 on JazzWeek, Roots Music Report and iTunes Jazz Charts.

"Strictly Romancin'" explores love's foibles, failures and bliss, from amorous to humorous. On this 14-song collection, this ever-soulful jazz-blues vocalist takes us on a journey from Harlem dance hall to Parisian café, to store front church, to New Orleans gin joint, to uptown cabaret, blurring distinctions between the carnal and the eternal, in a musical tour de force. The album comprises many covers of Russell's greatest influences and mentors, including her father, Luis Russell, family friend Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington, among others.

This concert is presented in honor of Jazz Appreciation Month and in celebration of 65 years of broadcast service to the CNY community by WAER 88.3FM, Syracuse University's jazz station and NPR affiliate.

At the heart of this joyful play is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest comic heroine, Rosalind. As a woman disguised as a man, she exists not fully as either but in between, where she can relish the privilege of speaking with a man's authority informed by a woman's heart, a combination she needs in guiding the varied denizens of the Forest of Arden in the hey-nonny-no of love. As the great sage writes: "To be in love, and yet to see and feel the absurdity of it, one needs to go school with Rosalind." And school is rarely, if ever, this much fun. Sweet lovers love the spring!

Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

My First Time
Rarely Done Productions
Dan Tursi, director

Price: $20
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

First sexual experiences are one of the few things that almost every person on this planet has in common, whether you're Paris Hilton or P. Diddy, George Clooney or George Washington, yet we rarely talk about them. Until now...

In 1998, a decade before blogging began, a website was created that allowed people to anonymously share their own true stories about their First Times. The website became an instant phenomenon as over 40,000 stories poured in from around the globe that were silly, sweet, absurd, funny, shy, sexy and everything in between.

And now, these true stories and all of the unique characters in them are brought to life by four amazing actors in the acclaimed play, My First Time, by Ken Davenport, producer of Altar Boyz and creator of The Awesome 80s Prom.

This show is intended for mature audiences only.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky
Light Work Gallery

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

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

Kala Stein: Form & Plenty
Gandee Gallery

Gandee Gallery
7846 Main St., Fabius

Kala Stein's exhibition Form and Plenty showcases her innovative ceramics based on archetypal utilitarian forms, like vases, bottles, and cups. By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a single vessel. Stein says of her work, "Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself."

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, NY.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

Organ Crawl

Price: $10
Park Central Presbyterian Church
504 E. Fayette St., Syracuse

Onondaga Historical Association's Executive Director Gregg Tripoli will guide a behind-the-scenes musical walking tour of the historic churches of the Cathedral Square Neighborhood of downtown Syracuse.

Stops for the Organ Crawl include the Park Central Presbyterian Church, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and Plymouth Congregational Church. As part of the program, each church on the tour will provide a short organ recital with performances by some of central New York's most notable musical directors, including Will Headlee, Professor Emeritus at Syracuse University; Timothy Davenport, Director of Music for the Syracuse Diocese; Jim Potts of St. Paul's Episcopal Church; and Joseph Downing, Director of Music at Plymouth Congregational Church and currently Associate Professor and Past Director of the Setnor School of Music at Syracuse University.

The Organ Crawl will begin at Park Central Presbyterian Church on Fayette Square. The organ housed here was built in 1967 by M.P. Möeller Co. and is an Opus 10313. It has 2,999 pipes in 55 ranks. Will Headlee, organist at Park Presbyterian since 1990, is Professor Emeritus at Syracuse University where he began teaching organ in 1956. Mr. Headlee was organist-choir director at three Lutheran churches and at Hendricks Chapel prior to joining the staff of Park Central.

The next stop will be St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral, on the southwest corner of Fayette and Montgomery Streets. In this beautiful church, those attending will hear another M.P. Möller organ, which was completely redesigned and rebuilt in 2002. This 74-rank organ has a total of 4,327 pipes. Jim Potts will be the organist in this space that is notable for its excellent acoustics.

One block south on Montgomery Street is Columbus Circle, the site of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and the third stop on the Organ Crawl. Here listeners will hear Timothy Davenport, the Director of Music for the Diocese of Syracuse and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, playing the Roosevelt Organ, installed at the Cathedral in 1892. This organ was totally refurbished in 1974 by the Schantz Organ Company.

The final stop is Plymouth Congregational Church, 232 E. Onondaga Street off Columbus Circle. Joe Downing, the Director of Music for Plymouth Congregational, will play a 1930 Möeller Organ with 2600 pipes in 40 ranks. This model reflected the taste of the time for organs that imitated the sound of an orchestra.

This event benefits the initiatives of the Cathedral Square Neighborhood Association. For reservations and information, call Karen at 315-428-1864, ext. 312.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Time, Again Time: Works by Ana Tiscornia
Point of Contact Gallery

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

In "Time, again time," the artist reflects on ordered fragments of a disordered world. An activist and renowned Latin American artist, Ana Tiscornia brings a mixed-media installation that curator Pedro Cuperman describes as "the outcome of a tale, where we have a fragmented world, where the pieces are somehow geometrically organic, logical... a kind of architecture of catastrophe. It is about the artist's obsession with organizing her world after having lived through the tragedies of military dictatorships in her home land, and the present catastrophes, wars that we endure in our own time. Ana's work demands from the viewer a sort of reconstruction, reintegration of the work, and our world.

316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an exciting new voice in American Theatre and his award-winning The Brothers Size proves why. In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

In her first US museum solo show, New York City-based Japanese artist Noriko Ambe will create a new site-specific installation in the main gallery reflecting the tragic 2011 events in Japan through the use of video projections and her signature large-scale paper cutouts that evoke waves.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.

RESOURCED/response: The Art of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative and SU Fiber Arts
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition is a look into the environmental devastation that plagues the earth and its beings. It is also a look into the environmental justice movement that works to correct and heal the destruction. RESOURCED is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative in 2010, focusing on resource extraction and climate issues, which will be used to help ask important questions about our environment. At the beginning of the spring semester 2012, students from the introduction to fibers course at Syracuse University viewed images from RESOURCED.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

Film Talk Series: God Bless America
Film in Syracuse (Syracuse International Film Festival)
Featuring Bobcat Goldthwait, director

Palace Theater
2384 James St., Syracuse

Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of American culture, which he sees as overrun with cruelty, stupidity and intolerance. Divorced, recently fired, and possibly terminally ill, Frank truly has nothing left to live for. But instead of taking his own life, he buys a gun and decides to take out his frustration on the cruelest, stupidest, most intolerant people he can imagine -- starting with some particularly odious reality television stars. Frank finds an unusual accomplice in a high-school student named Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement, and together they embark on a nation-wide assault on our country's dumbest, most irritating celebrities.

Written and directed by taboo-busting filmmaker and comedian Bobcat Goldthwait (Shakes the Clown, Sleeping Dogs Lie, World's Greatest Dad), God Bless America is a truly dark and very funny comedy for anyone who's had enough of the dumbing down of our society.

There will be a Q&A session with the director.

Shpongle presents The Masquerade, with Phutureprimitive
Westcott Theater

Westcott Theater
524 Westcott St., Syracuse

Shpongle is an English psychedelic downtempo/psybient music project formed in 1996. The group includes Simon Posford (aka Hallucinogen) and Raja Ram (one third of The Infinity Project). Their musical style combines traditional music from all over the globe and vocals with contemporary western synthesizer-based psychedelic music. When asked to describe Shpongle's music, Posford has responded that it is "like nothing you've ever heard before". Shpongle's first track, "Vapour Rumours", was released on TIP Records' Infinite Excursions compilation in 1996. Their debut album, "Are You Shpongled?," was released in 1998 on Twisted Records. Shpongle's music is heavily influenced by psychedelic experiences and frequently makes use of sonic textures that approximate psychedelic states as well as vocal samples relating to consciousness expansion, hallucinations, and altered states of awareness. Shpongle has played at events such as Ozora Festival, Camp Bisco, The Rainbow Serpent Festival, and The Hammerstein Ballroom. As of September 2011, the group has begun recording its fifth album.

In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky
Light Work Gallery

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

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

This hysterical and deliciously dark comedy by Canadian playwright Morris Panych explores what happens when an embittered, self-involved bachelor arrives to care for the dying aunt he hasn't seen since childhood. Vigil offers an uncanny balance of humor, ruminations on family, identity, and the human condition. Starring John Bixler and Caroline Fitzgerald.

As the great sage writes: "To be in love, and yet to see and feel the absurdity of it, one needs to go school with Rosalind." And school is rarely, if ever, this much fun. Sweet lovers love the spring!
