Active Repair: Works from the Social Justice Sewing Academy
Community Folk Art Center

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

One cannot think about "repair" without thinking of textile arts: the sewing of a split-open seam, the patching of a fabric hole, the darning of a sock. Founded in 2016, the Social Justice Sewing Academy is motivated by the idea that textile arts can repair more than fabric and clothing — that society can experience a kind of repair by using textile art as a framework for activism. Through more than 300 workshops at schools, juvenile detention centers, and community centers throughout the U.S., SJSA has engaged participants in scaffolded discussions about the current socio-political climate that in turn informs the creation of quilt blocks critiquing an issue plaguing their local and larger communities. These quilt blocks are then sent to volunteers around the world to embellish and embroider before being sewn together into quilts which have been displayed in preeminent arts venues across the country. The Community Folk Art Center is pleased to present a curated selection of quilts from SJSA workshops that have helped people grow as critical thinkers, artists, and advocates.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

Jamie Young: Decivilization
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Jamie Young is a photographer based in Syracuse. His work has often focused on the natural world as a source of spiritual redemption and renewal in a time of cultural upheavals and challenges. Young has traveled extensively in Iceland over the past 25 years, and his ongoing Icelandic series documents both the extraordinary solace of the country's geology and landscapes and the land's rapid transformations due to climate change. He also runs a professional photography business and teaches photography and wood and metal fabrication at local universities.

50th Anniversary: Selections from Light Work Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Remarkable in its breadth and depth, Light Work's 50th Anniversary exhibition is a thoughtful composition of photographic works that have come into Light Work's permanent collection over the past 50 years through the generosity of former artist-in-residence participants, Grant Awardees, and individual donations. The works on view are a reflective curation from over 4,000 objects and photographic prints from an extensive and diverse archive that maps the trends and developments in contemporary photography. The semi-centennial presents a unique opportunity to share the legacy of support the organization has extended to emerging and under-represented artists working in photography and digital image-making. Highlights in the show include early works from acclaimed photographers Dawoud Bey, Carrie Mae Weems, James Welling, and more.

Lida Suchy: Portrait of A Village
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For the past eight years, Ukraine has been represented by images of conflict, war, destruction, and carnage. Lida's images can help viewers to connect to the current situation in Ukraine on a personal level that goes beyond the daily news by putting a human face on the tragic war that is being waged upon the Ukrainian people.

As a first-generation American and daughter of Ukrainian refugees, Lida draws on this background as a resource and inspiration for her creative work. She has photographed in the western village of Kryvorivnya, on and off since 1991. Using a slow and sometimes cumbersome 8×10" analog camera, she captured a detailed description of the village, thus creating a composite portrait of this rural community through individual portraits of its members. With the hope of overturning soviet style authoritarianism, villagers actively participated in the Euromaidan Revolution of Dignity in 2014.

Today many are still defending Ukraine.

An unlikely love story between the artist Pat Musick, a civil rights activist, and the Apollo astronaut Jerry Carr. This documentary tells their story as they participated in some of the most historic moments in human history. It is filled with never-before-seen footage of the early space pioneers. The Artist and the Astronaut proves that curiosity, perseverance, and empathy for others are powerful agents of change in even the most uncertain times.

After trying to escape his father's low-key, family ambitions for him, Charlie Price has suddenly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

Lida Suchy: Portrait of A Village
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For the past eight years, Ukraine has been represented by images of conflict, war, destruction, and carnage. Lida's images can help viewers to connect to the current situation in Ukraine on a personal level that goes beyond the daily news by putting a human face on the tragic war that is being waged upon the Ukrainian people.

As a first-generation American and daughter of Ukrainian refugees, Lida draws on this background as a resource and inspiration for her creative work. She has photographed in the western village of Kryvorivnya, on and off since 1991. Using a slow and sometimes cumbersome 8×10" analog camera, she captured a detailed description of the village, thus creating a composite portrait of this rural community through individual portraits of its members. With the hope of overturning soviet style authoritarianism, villagers actively participated in the Euromaidan Revolution of Dignity in 2014.

Today many are still defending Ukraine.

These quilt blocks are then sent to volunteers around the world to embellish and embroider before being sewn together into quilts which have been displayed in preeminent arts venues across the country. The Community Folk Art Center is pleased to present a curated selection of quilts from SJSA workshops that have helped people grow as critical thinkers, artists, and advocates.

Active Repair: Works from the Social Justice Sewing Academy
Community Folk Art Center

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

One cannot think about "repair" without thinking of textile arts: the sewing of a split-open seam, the patching of a fabric hole, the darning of a sock. Founded in 2016, the Social Justice Sewing Academy is motivated by the idea that textile arts can repair more than fabric and clothing — that society can experience a kind of repair by using textile art as a framework for activism. Through more than 300 workshops at schools, juvenile detention centers, and community centers throughout the U.S., SJSA has engaged participants in scaffolded discussions about the current socio-political climate that in turn informs the creation of quilt blocks critiquing an issue plaguing their local and larger communities.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

Lida Suchy: Portrait of A Village
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For the past eight years, Ukraine has been represented by images of conflict, war, destruction, and carnage. Lida's images can help viewers to connect to the current situation in Ukraine on a personal level that goes beyond the daily news by putting a human face on the tragic war that is being waged upon the Ukrainian people.

As a first-generation American and daughter of Ukrainian refugees, Lida draws on this background as a resource and inspiration for her creative work. She has photographed in the western village of Kryvorivnya, on and off since 1991. Using a slow and sometimes cumbersome 8×10" analog camera, she captured a detailed description of the village, thus creating a composite portrait of this rural community through individual portraits of its members. With the hope of overturning soviet style authoritarianism, villagers actively participated in the Euromaidan Revolution of Dignity in 2014.

Today many are still defending Ukraine.

I Love Me, by Tina Dillman
Everson Museum of Art

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

I Love Me is an interactive performance by multidisciplinary artist Tina Dillman, that explores the realm of self-care through game-like exercises, where participants will choose their own path of adventure, while engaging and exploring the museum from a different perspective.

Since it is the time for love, this piece will ask you to expand your awareness and understanding on the importance of self love and care. Inspired by the artist's life and her realization that even following your passions (art) can burn you out.

In recognizing that the notion of taking care of oneself is not something that we are taught nor have ever been encouraged to undertake, she would like to share ideas of ways that we can better show up for ourselves, so that we are able to show up for others.

And, in the end, there is no better gift than (self) love.
