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.

Let’s Be Dragons: Wild Seeds
SU Art Galleries

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

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

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.

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.

Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside," part of the annual exhibition of the Master of Fine Art thesis candidates from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, features the artwork of six emerging artists Zhongwen (Lisa) Hu, Courtney Asztalos, Evan Deuitch, Todd Irwin Francis Lauther, Ssu Ya Hsiung, and Chelsea Jones. Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

Deborah Stratman: Xenoi
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In Deborah Stratman's short video Xenoi (2016), the Greek island of Syros is visited by a series of unexpected guests: immutable forms, outside of time, aloof observers of the human condition. These hovering guests are the Platonic Solids, named for the famed ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, who described them in the dialogue Timaeus as part of a higher level of reality.

Shot on location and featuring a hypnotic score, Xenoi scans the horizon of modern day Greece, a landscape at once timeless and jarringly contemporary. "Xenoi" is the plural of "xenos," an enigmatic word usually translated as "stranger" — but whether the stranger is friend or foe depends on context and interpretation. What do these geometric specters portend in a contemporary climate of consumerism and economic crisis?

Let’s Be Dragons: Wild Seeds
SU Art Galleries

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

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside," part of the annual exhibition of the Master of Fine Art thesis candidates from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, features the artwork of six emerging artists Zhongwen (Lisa) Hu, Courtney Asztalos, Evan Deuitch, Todd Irwin Francis Lauther, Ssu Ya Hsiung, and Chelsea Jones. Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

Deborah Stratman: Xenoi
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In Deborah Stratman's short video Xenoi (2016), the Greek island of Syros is visited by a series of unexpected guests: immutable forms, outside of time, aloof observers of the human condition. These hovering guests are the Platonic Solids, named for the famed ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, who described them in the dialogue Timaeus as part of a higher level of reality.

Shot on location and featuring a hypnotic score, Xenoi scans the horizon of modern day Greece, a landscape at once timeless and jarringly contemporary. "Xenoi" is the plural of "xenos," an enigmatic word usually translated as "stranger" — but whether the stranger is friend or foe depends on context and interpretation. What do these geometric specters portend in a contemporary climate of consumerism and economic crisis?

This film is a sober, profoundly moving portrait of the filmmaker's mother Natalia in the months leading up to her death, when she was mostly confined to her Brussels apartment. A Polish Jew who survived Auschwitz, Natalia suffered from chronic anxiety all her life, an affliction that fueled much of her daughter's creative output and helped shape Akerman's thematic preoccupations with gender, sex, cultural identity, existential ennui, solitude, and mania.

Ace In the Hole (1951)
ArtRage Gallery

Price: $5 suggested donation
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Director/writer Billy Wilder spares no one in this blistering look at the seedy relationship of the press, the news it reports, and how it reports it. Kirk Douglas, at his cynical best, plays a disgraced reporter who will stop at nothing to promote and regain his career—even exploiting a man trapped in a mine shaft. Keep an eye out for Jan Sterling, terrific as the miner's ruthless wife. It all adds up to a gripping indictment of media hype and manipulation, shabby journalism, and consequence.

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.

"Disappearing World" encourages the viewer to meditate on the places we pass by and the objects we use and discard and what these say about the society for which we all are responsible.

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.

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.

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.

Earl Dotter began his photographic career after completing his studies at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. In 1968 he joined VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) and was assigned to the Cumberland Plateau Region of Tennessee. Over time, he was welcomed into the homes of coal mining families. He came to know and respect their culture and struggles—a relationship that continues to this day. After his VISTA assignment concluded, he remained in the area to photograph the rank-and-file movement to reform the United Mine Workers Union, then under the corrupt leadership of Tony Boyle.

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

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside," part of the annual exhibition of the Master of Fine Art thesis candidates from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, features the artwork of six emerging artists Zhongwen (Lisa) Hu, Courtney Asztalos, Evan Deuitch, Todd Irwin Francis Lauther, Ssu Ya Hsiung, and Chelsea Jones. Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

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

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.

Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside," part of the annual exhibition of the Master of Fine Art thesis candidates from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, features the artwork of six emerging artists Zhongwen (Lisa) Hu, Courtney Asztalos, Evan Deuitch, Todd Irwin Francis Lauther, Ssu Ya Hsiung, and Chelsea Jones. Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

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.

Recognizing 35 successful years of Syracuse Jazz Fest, OHA offers a visual exhibit on the history of Jazz Fest.

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

Let’s Be Dragons: Wild Seeds

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

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

Deborah Stratman: Xenoi
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In Deborah Stratman's short video Xenoi (2016), the Greek island of Syros is visited by a series of unexpected guests: immutable forms, outside of time, aloof observers of the human condition. These hovering guests are the Platonic Solids, named for the famed ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, who described them in the dialogue Timaeus as part of a higher level of reality.

Shot on location and featuring a hypnotic score, Xenoi scans the horizon of modern day Greece, a landscape at once timeless and jarringly contemporary. "Xenoi" is the plural of "xenos," an enigmatic word usually translated as "stranger" — but whether the stranger is friend or foe depends on context and interpretation. What do these geometric specters portend in a contemporary climate of consumerism and economic crisis?

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

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

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

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

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

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

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

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

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

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

Let’s Be Dragons: Wild Seeds
SU Art Galleries

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

"Let's Be Dragons," the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) exhibition of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will be showing in four venues in Syracuse.

"Wild Seeds" features the artwork of nine emerging artists: Loren Bartnicke, Gang Chen, Owen Drysdale, Rachel Fein-Smolinski, Peter Smith, Shiwen Su, Chunlin Yang, Munjal Yagnik, and Chris Zacher. Organized by DJ Hellerman, curator of art and programs at the Everson Museum of Art, this spring marks the first campus and Syracuse city-wide celebration of the arts learned and practiced at Syracuse University.

Referencing Octavia E. Butler's 1980 science-fiction novel These Wild Seeds, the exhibition brings together a selection of artists interested in undermining or tinkering with superstructures designed to engineer social order and temper radical individuality. Altogether, the artists in "Wild Seeds" point and nudge our focus toward institutions with power and control. The works present questions about who has the agency to manipulate our subjectivity and they attempt to craft histories that open the possibility of forging against the currents of dominant culture. Decidedly, these artworks and art practices are acts of resistance and revision, often rejected or dismissed, that help us envision a future that is unlike our past.

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.

Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside
Point of Contact Gallery

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

"Let's Be Dragons: Serpents Inside," part of the annual exhibition of the Master of Fine Art thesis candidates from Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, features the artwork of six emerging artists Zhongwen (Lisa) Hu, Courtney Asztalos, Evan Deuitch, Todd Irwin Francis Lauther, Ssu Ya Hsiung, and Chelsea Jones. Through their presentations, a variety of themes and media including painting, photography, ceramics, video art, illustration, and site-specific installations, will be explored.

Serpents Inside brings together artists expressing and grappling with existential questions of identity and self-exploration. Each artist reframes the physical and mental, the public and private, and the performance of identity exploration.

Chelsea Jones's self-portraiture project uses her hair, common hair processing techniques, and cosmetic routines as racial signifiers to come to terms with the implications of being a biracial woman. Courtney Asztalos' installation focuses on the physical presence of women within an architectural space designed as a utopia to exploit our wildest fantasies where financial victory may be just one slot away. Todd Irwin Francis Lauther's lyrical photographs capture a young man's thoughtful response to his desire for fatherhood and a sensitive negotiation of the societal pressure placed upon men to create a family. With painting and performance Ssu Ya Hsiung and Zhongwen Hu use childhood memories, both absurd and surreal, to depict psychological loneliness, vulnerability, and physical isolation from the outside world. Evan Deuitch's investigation of the online subculture of hybrid human/animal characters known as the furry fandom brings together fantastical imagination with hedonistic pleasure. His character driven self-portraits address identity construction, obsession, and role playing.

Together, Serpents Inside, offers a palpable sense of the vulnerability, self-doubt, pleasure and pain that often accompany an inward searching.

Deborah Stratman: Xenoi
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In Deborah Stratman's short video Xenoi (2016), the Greek island of Syros is visited by a series of unexpected guests: immutable forms, outside of time, aloof observers of the human condition. These hovering guests are the Platonic Solids, named for the famed ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, who described them in the dialogue Timaeus as part of a higher level of reality.

Shot on location and featuring a hypnotic score, Xenoi scans the horizon of modern day Greece, a landscape at once timeless and jarringly contemporary. "Xenoi" is the plural of "xenos," an enigmatic word usually translated as "stranger" — but whether the stranger is friend or foe depends on context and interpretation. What do these geometric specters portend in a contemporary climate of consumerism and economic crisis?

Peter and the Starcatcher
Baldwinsville Theatre Guild
Colin Keating, director

First Presbyterian Church of Baldwinsville
64 Oswego St., Baldwinsville

Tony Award-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain's cabin which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk's precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates—led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own—the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.
