Earth Piece
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art's 50th anniversary year, "Yoko Ono: Remembering The Future" situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist's landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic practice devoted to fostering and healing human connections, often by exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

Unique
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Coordinated by ARISE, a non-profit agency based in Syracuse, UNIQUE celebrates the artistic talents of Central New Yorkers living with disabilities. The works included in this exhibition eloquently speak to the myriad thoughts, ideas, and feelings that all humans share, regardless of individual ability or circumstance. The annual competition invites submissions of art and literature which are then selected for display by a panel of judges, and the works are exhibited in several venues throughout CNY.

Mixed Doubles
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

The Architecture of Landscape: Works by Karen Thomas-Lillie and Jeremy Randall
Imagine

Imagine
38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles

The landscape of Central NY is an inspirational space for both Thomas-Lillie and Randall, as as Karen looks to "create atmospheric landscapes with oil bar, blurring edges between land, water and sky. Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: $5
Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center
6680 Onondaga Lake Parkway, Liverpool

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

So many Central New Yorkers have fond memories of coming to Syracuse and taking in the shops, the sights, and the sounds of Salina Street, the heart of Downtown. This exhibit re-creates Salina Street in our large first-floor gallery, using photographs and artifacts from the many shops, so that visitors to our downtown museum can "stroll" down the grand old street once again.

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future
Urban Video Project

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

"Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future" is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, which will be featuring a contemporaneous survey exhibition of the groundbreaking conceptual artist Yoko Ono's work inside the museum.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

Collective Soul is pumped and primed to celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2019 in all-out style, but they're really just gearing up for the long haul. Ever since the barnburning rock band from Stockbridge, Georgia, burst onto the national scene with the runaway success of their multi-platinum 1993 debut "Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid" and its ensuing mega-smash hits like "Shine" and "Breathe," they've been on an upward trajectory that's seen them play to sold-out audiences across the globe while concurrently amassing an impressive catalog of beloved songs instantly recognizable by their titles alone.

Now, Collective Soul is proud to welcome the newest member of their recorded family into the world titled Blood. Blood is the culmination of a quarter-century of Collective Soul assessing not only where they've come from, but also where they're going.

38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles

The landscape of Central NY is an inspirational space for both Thomas-Lillie and Randall, as as Karen looks to "create atmospheric landscapes with oil bar, blurring edges between land, water and sky. Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe.

Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

A veteran of the CNY music scene, Joe Altier's song catalog is deep, and he effortlessly jumps from genre to genre and decade to decade.

The Cup of Joe monthly series at the Listening Room at 443 features "Just Joe" digging deep into his repertoire with a different theme each month. Joe will share the songs and the personal stories behind his choices, our bartenders will be slinging Bloodys, Mimosas, and a selection of bad-ass coffee drinks. The theme will change each month, but you can count on tasty tunes, good vibes and interesting company in our cozy living room style space.

Rent
Redhouse

Price: $40
Redhouse at City Center
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. This is theatre at its best—exuberant, passionate and joyous!

Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

Artemisia
Point of Contact Gallery

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

From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucía Warck-Meister brings a site-specific installation project to the Point of Contact Gallery and to Syracuse University. Lucía is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call "identity."

For her installation Artemisia, Lucía takes as a springboard the story of Artemisia Gentileschi and how the terrible events she endured during her life as a female artist changed the way she saw herself and dramatically changed the subjects of her paintings.

Lucía now creates a highly ornate space by using red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and glass. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Earth Piece
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art's 50th anniversary year, "Yoko Ono: Remembering The Future" situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist's landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic practice devoted to fostering and healing human connections, often by exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than four decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, Remembering The Future traces Ono's experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

Mixed Doubles
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Humans first produced fired ceramic objects around 29,000 BCE. Since then, technical knowledge and stylistic influences have gradually spread across the globe. "Mixed Doubles" pairs the work of 12 contemporary ceramists with historical works from the Everson's legendary permanent collection. Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences. Most importantly, the dialogue between these historical and contemporary objects reinforces our shared humanity.

Artemisia
Point of Contact Gallery

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

From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucía Warck-Meister brings a site-specific installation project to the Point of Contact Gallery and to Syracuse University. Lucía is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call "identity."

For her installation Artemisia, Lucía takes as a springboard the story of Artemisia Gentileschi and how the terrible events she endured during her life as a female artist changed the way she saw herself and dramatically changed the subjects of her paintings.

Lucía now creates a highly ornate space by using red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and glass. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.

Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

Artist Talk with Maranie Rae Staab
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Join us for an evening with the photographer of our current exhibition, "Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience."

Maranie Rae Staab is an independent photographer, videographer, and journalist working to document human rights and social justice issues, displacement, and the periphery of conflict — how violence and war affect individuals and societies. Her work focuses on people, especially those in marginalized parts of society, whether domestically or abroad.

Maranie works to further understanding of the human experience through intimate, human-centered storytelling using still and moving images and the written word. She is motivated by the conviction that we are all connected and that images and words have power: to inform, inspire empathy, feelings of understanding and connectedness, to challenge the way we think, to educate, and to move people to action.

Staab returned to school in 2018 after working for several years photographing and learning about displaced populations throughout the Middle East, Africa, and her hometown of Pittsburgh. Those experiences profoundly informed her desire to better understand the experiences of those in Syracuse's refugee community as well. She has worked throughout Eastern and Western Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. She is currently in graduate studies in the Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University.

The Architecture of Landscape: Works by Karen Thomas-Lillie and Jeremy Randall
Imagine

Imagine
38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles

The landscape of Central NY is an inspirational space for both Thomas-Lillie and Randall, as as Karen looks to "create atmospheric landscapes with oil bar, blurring edges between land, water and sky. Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

"Impact!

The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

The Doll: Silent Film with New Music
Syracuse International Film Festival
Society for New Music

Price: $100 dinner, film, and full festival pass; $15 silent film only
Palace Theater
2384 James St., Syracuse

The Doll, a 1919 masterpiece of filmmaking by Ernst Lubitsch with an original score by Diane Jones (Pet Dragon Music).

The Doll unfolds like a mad picture-book come to life. The backdrops are mostly forced perspective, full of slanted picture frames and out-of-scale doorways. One character's kitchen has the hanging pots and pans painted straight onto the flats. The sun and moon are embodied by paper cutouts with faces—the movie often looks as though it were designed by a precocious seven-year-old. The jokes, however, are not necessarily for children. The Doll is essentially a sex comedy, about an effete young man who tries to marry a mechanical doll, only to discover that she's flesh and blood, and more fun that way.

Dinner precedes the film at 6:00 pm.

Mikushkin describes himself as a "plein air" landscape artist, meaning that he paints outdoors, gathering information directly from the beauty around him including nuances with light, color, and shadow that might otherwise be lost in the confines of a studio.

The Architecture of Landscape: Works by Karen Thomas-Lillie and Jeremy Randall
Imagine

Imagine
38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles

The landscape of Central NY is an inspirational space for both Thomas-Lillie and Randall, as as Karen looks to "create atmospheric landscapes with oil bar, blurring edges between land, water and sky. Honoring these natural elements result in layers of meditative color that transcend time and place." Randall's love of old implements and objects "places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time." This is the third time that these two artists have shown together, and every time the work is a wonderful pairing.

For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff's collection of stereotypical "Indian Kitch," brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

"Impact! The Photo League and Its Legacy" presents over 20 black and white photographs by master photographers associated with league, a cooperative of both amateur and professional photographers founded in 1936. The intent of the League was twofold: instruction on the art of photography, and a mission to put cameras in the hands of honest photographers with an intention to photograph America. The advisors, teachers, and students shared a commitment to social realism, specifically with the aim to produce visual images of working-class life. From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Named after Yoko Ono's 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to "Listen to the sound of the earth turning," this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as "just another material," clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

Some artists, like Korean-American artist Steven Young Lee pay tribute to their ancestors, while others, like Betty Woodman, synthesize stylistic elements from multiple cultures to develop their own distinctive visual vocabulary. Mixed Doubles' pairings range from breezy coincidences and casual similarities to profound cultural influences.

Artemisia
Point of Contact Gallery

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

From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucía Warck-Meister brings a site-specific installation project to the Point of Contact Gallery and to Syracuse University. Lucía is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call "identity."

For her installation Artemisia, Lucía takes as a springboard the story of Artemisia Gentileschi and how the terrible events she endured during her life as a female artist changed the way she saw herself and dramatically changed the subjects of her paintings.

Lucía now creates a highly ornate space by using red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and glass. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.

505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

Urban Video Project

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

"Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future" is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, which will be featuring a contemporaneous survey exhibition of the groundbreaking conceptual artist Yoko Ono's work inside the museum.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

For 12 hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now-legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, is a passionate tribute to Broadway's chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars—and often make them look even more talented than they are.

From its beginning to its untimely closure in 1951, the league boasted almost 250 members, including Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, and Godfrey Frankel, as well as hosted a number of teachers, board of advisors, and special lecturers such as Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lewis Hine.

Teaching Methods: The Legacy of Art and Design Faculty
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University enjoys the distinction of being the first institution of higher education to confer Baccalaureate of Arts degrees. The founding trustees recognized the importance of the arts and in 1873, George Fisk Comfort was appointed dean of the new College of Fine Arts comprised of the departments of Architecture and Painting. The university allocated funds sufficient for procuring basic supplies and Comfort recruited volunteer faculty from the region. The first class, of 1873, had 15 students, all but one of whom was enrolled in Painting.

Over the nearly 150 years since its founding, the program has evolved, reflecting different aesthetic sensibilities at different times in its history. One constant has been a talented group of faculty who strive to provide the best possible learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. This exhibition presents a sampling of the work by select former faculty in the permanent collection.

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition highlights 18 original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the Cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in ones use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the Cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb.

Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.

Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future
Urban Video Project

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

"Yoko Ono: Remembering the Future" is presented in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art, which will be featuring a contemporaneous survey exhibition of the groundbreaking conceptual artist Yoko Ono's work inside the museum.

The four works on view at UVP will not be on view inside the museum and are selections of early performance-based film works which have been scanned and transferred to high definition video.

For YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE, UVP will feature a selection of performance-based films which have been re-scanned and transferred to video, showcasing these film classics in high definition.

Each of the works center on the body—in all its vulnerability and ordinariness—intimately documenting the carrying out of seemingly simple performative premises. But as we watch, these simple gestures become by turns poetic, humorous, politically pointed, and profound.

FILM NO. 4 (BOTTOMS) [FLUXFILM NO. 16] (1966, silent) deals with the movement of the naked "bottoms."
FREEDOM (1971) is a feminist film, which is locked in the constraints of the bra.
EYEBLINK [FLUXFILM NO. 9 and 15] (1966, silent) is one of the most erotic films.
FILM NO. 1 (MATCH PIECE) [FLUXFILM NO. 14] (1966, silent) is the profound measurement of life.

Screening begins at dusk.

A Chorus Line
Syracuse University Drama Department
Brian J. Marcum, director

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

In 1974, choreographer Michael Bennet invited a group of his friends to a studio in New York to talk about their lives as dancers. For 12 hours, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder running, they shared their personal stories, which became the basis for the now-legendary musical A Chorus Line. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, is a passionate tribute to Broadway's chorus dancers: those valiant and highly trained performers who back up the star or stars—and often make them look even more talented than they are.
