Highlights from the Light Work Collection: Dawoud Bey
Light Work Gallery

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

Curated from our collection, Light Work is pleased to present a selection from two of Dawoud Bey's photographic projects: An American Project and Embracing Eatonville.

Black-and-white images from An American Project, made in Syracuse in 1985 during his artist residency, chronicle the community and history of the city. Embracing Eatonville was a photographic survey of Eatonville, FL — the oldest Black-incorporated town in the United States — that featured work by Dawoud Bey, Lonnie Graham, Carrie Mae Weems, and Deborah Willis, and was exhibited at Light Work in 2003. Bey made color photographs of high school students combining their portraits with text sharing personal hopes, fears, and dreams.

Sophia Chai: Character Space
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1987, Chai immigrated to New York City from South Korea as a teenager without knowing English. Looking back, she has described that experience as feeling untethered to any internal compass that she could use to navigate her place in a new country with a new language. She visually explains these experiences to us by reinterpreting the Korean language's characters in photographs that enable us to see the contradictions of visual and verbal communication. Her images rest in the space between intellect and intuition. Chai's curiosity about the interior space of her tool — the large format camera, comparable to the interior space of a mouth — leads to the idea of the camera obscura, a darkened room with a small opening to the world.

Assembly: Syracuse University Voices on Art and Ecology
Syracuse University Art Museum

Syracuse University Art Museum, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Syracuse University Art Museum, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

The Art Wall Project features photographs and silk-screen prints made by Nona Faustine, a Brooklyn-based photographer. Faustine will consider the legacy of monuments in the United States and explore how, as she has described, "history is turned around. What is left out, what is included, what are the lies. And who gets celebrated."

The Syracuse University Art Museum's new Art Wall initiative is dedicated to site-specific works by emerging and leading contemporary artists, commissioned annually.

Pick and Mix
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Spring 2023 marks the beginning of a massive project that will convert an area adjacent to the ceramics gallery, which previously held paintings and prints, into dedicated ceramics storage. To accomplish this, we will close a portion of the ceramics gallery to make room for all the sorting and organizing that is to come. More than 200 paintings will come out of storage and hang salon-style in the Everson's upstairs galleries for the exhibition, Off the Rack.

In the face of space limitations like these, most museums would offer you less art—but that is not the Everson way. Instead, we offer you "Pick & Mix," a cornucopia of five fabulous exhibitions under one banner. Pick & Mix highlights the vitality of the Museum's mission to gather works that document the ways that artists draw inspiration from their cultures, as well as the ways that artists give back. Ceramics are an ideal lens to examine the gender roles, politics, and material culture of any given moment.

The Turner's Prize: Art Pottery from the Bill and Dorothy Paul Collection
As the keeper of potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau's legacy, the Everson has a heavy investment in American Art Pottery of the early and mid-20th century. The Turner's Prize highlights the extraordinary collection of Athens, Georgia-based Bill Paul. Instead of following mainstream collectors and market trends, Paul and his late wife Dorothy spent decades gathering rare and exotic works from the Art Pottery era that highlight hand-turned forms and experimental glazes.

Holding Space, Holding Pattern: Radical Decoration Strikes Back
Holding Space, Holding Pattern springs from a moment in the 1970s when pattern became a political and cultural weapon in the hands of feminist artists like Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro. The Pattern and Decoration movement kicked open the doors for women to move past the Japanese-inspired stonewares and muscular abstract sculptures that dominated ceramics throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

Natural Synthesis: African Stoneware from the Ramage Collection
Natural Synthesis tells the story of a group of talented Nigerian potters who apprenticed at a colonial British pottery school led by Michael Cardew. Potters like Danlami Aliyu and Ladi Kwali blended British forms and firing techniques with motifs and functional elements from their own aesthetic heritage, then opened their own studios and handed down their legacy to their own students.

Feelies
Over a career that spanned more than seven decades, Arizona-based potter Rose Cabat perfected the Feelie, a matte-glazed pottery form that begs to be held and touched. Feelies brings together more than 100 of Cabat's pots in a show-stopping array highlighting her mastery of glaze and form.

Cosmic Pipes: Pipes from the Clayton and Betty Bailey Collection
The Everson's recently acquired collection of Cosmic Pipes from the late 1960s joins other clay pipes from Indigenous and European cultures in the permanent collection. Ceramist Clayton Bailey created these pipes along with friends Roy De Forest, David Gilhooly, and Maija Peeples-Bright in 1969. Legend has it that Bailey's wife, Betty, an artist in her own right, encouraged the group to make what she called "paranoid pipes" in the form of everyday objects like ice cream cones and flowers to disguise their purpose and blend into their surroundings.

Off the Rack
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Off the Rack" is the happy by-product of a major renovation of the Everson's on-site art storage.

As hundreds of paintings and framed works are displaced from their racks while renovations take place, the public has an unprecedented opportunity to view objects that have been in deep storage for years, never-before-seen recent acquisitions, and some perennial favorites — all hung together salon-style in our exhibition galleries.

This smorgasbord of paintings and works on paper showcases the breadth and depth of the Museum's collections and provides a glimpse into the world of collections management and care.

Sana Musasama: Returning to Ourselves
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Throughout her career, Queens-based artist Sana Musasama has drawn inspiration from travel and research into global cultures. "Returning to Ourselves" centers around a series of dolls that Musasama produced that mirror African-American topsy-turvy dolls containing a white doll whose skirt can be flipped up to transform it into a Black doll.

Musasama uses this formal structure to juxtapose different figures drawn from the global Black diaspora. "Returning to Ourselves" is rounded out by a series of ceramic houses Musasama began early in her career but returned to during the pandemic to combat looming depression.

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2009 and 2010, Janet Biggs traveled to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard with a crew of artists and scientists to document the changing Arctic landscape. As the subject of centuries of exploration, the Arctic was once seen as indifferent to human enterprise, so vast and inhospitable as to be immune to any imposition. Today, scientists expect climate change to leave Arctic summers ice-free as early as the next decade, and Svalbard, located halfway between Europe and the North Pole, finds itself at the epicenter of this metamorphoses. Using footage compiled on her voyages north, Biggs explores this history and the alarming consequences of human enterprise in three videos: Warning Shot (2016), Brightness All Around (2011), and Fade to White (2010). Shown together, these works are a clarion call for a heroic landscape that will completely transform within our lifetimes.

Jewels from the Fire: 20th Century Enamels
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson Museum houses a significant collection of enamels by artists including June Schwarcz, Edward H. Winter, and Ellamarie and Jackson Woolley. Several leading ceramists — for example, Carleton Ball and Jade Snow Wong — also worked in enamel. Exhibition spaces that show ceramics have often championed enamels too, including the Everson's own Ceramic National exhibitions. After waning in popularity in the mid-20th century, enamels are enjoying a comeback thanks to new technologies and the proliferation of community studios and makerspaces that provide shared equipment and knowledge.

Gandee Gallery

Gandee Gallery

Cirque du Soleil: Corteo
The Oncenter

War Memorial at Oncenter
800 S. State St., Syracuse

The clown Mauro envisions that his own burial will take place amid a carnival atmosphere and be attended by tender angels. The show contrasts the grand with the intimate, the silly with the tragic, and the beauty of perfection with the appeal of imperfection. It also emphasizes the strength and vulnerability of the clown as well as his knowledge and generosity to represent the aspect of humanity that exists in each of us. Corteo is guided through a timeless ceremony in which fantasy teases reality with music, which is both poetic and mischievous.

Kay has always worried about her sister Emma. Worried so much, in fact, that she's mostly put her own life – save for an unsatisfying job teaching science to middle schoolers – on hold, always on call for when Emma faces another mental health crisis. After years of medication and psychiatric hospitals, Kay and her novelist boyfriend Billy decide to bring Emma to a secluded cabin in the woods, as a sort of vacation from the doctors and therapy. But when Emma miraculously starts to get better, Kay is suddenly faced with a terrifying prospect: Finally taking care of herself. Darkly funny and unexpectedly tender, Bess Wohl's Touch(ed) is a deftly observed drama about navigating life, love, and loss in an age of endless anxieties.

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2009 and 2010, Janet Biggs traveled to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard with a crew of artists and scientists to document the changing Arctic landscape. As the subject of centuries of exploration, the Arctic was once seen as indifferent to human enterprise, so vast and inhospitable as to be immune to any imposition. Today, scientists expect climate change to leave Arctic summers ice-free as early as the next decade, and Svalbard, located halfway between Europe and the North Pole, finds itself at the epicenter of this metamorphoses. Using footage compiled on her voyages north, Biggs explores this history and the alarming consequences of human enterprise in three videos: Warning Shot (2016), Brightness All Around (2011), and Fade to White (2010). Shown together, these works are a clarion call for a heroic landscape that will completely transform within our lifetimes.

Pick and Mix
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Spring 2023 marks the beginning of a massive project that will convert an area adjacent to the ceramics gallery, which previously held paintings and prints, into dedicated ceramics storage. To accomplish this, we will close a portion of the ceramics gallery to make room for all the sorting and organizing that is to come. More than 200 paintings will come out of storage and hang salon-style in the Everson's upstairs galleries for the exhibition, Off the Rack.

In the face of space limitations like these, most museums would offer you less art—but that is not the Everson way. Instead, we offer you "Pick & Mix," a cornucopia of five fabulous exhibitions under one banner. Pick & Mix highlights the vitality of the Museum's mission to gather works that document the ways that artists draw inspiration from their cultures, as well as the ways that artists give back. Ceramics are an ideal lens to examine the gender roles, politics, and material culture of any given moment.

The Turner's Prize: Art Pottery from the Bill and Dorothy Paul Collection
As the keeper of potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau's legacy, the Everson has a heavy investment in American Art Pottery of the early and mid-20th century. The Turner's Prize highlights the extraordinary collection of Athens, Georgia-based Bill Paul. Instead of following mainstream collectors and market trends, Paul and his late wife Dorothy spent decades gathering rare and exotic works from the Art Pottery era that highlight hand-turned forms and experimental glazes.

Holding Space, Holding Pattern: Radical Decoration Strikes Back
Holding Space, Holding Pattern springs from a moment in the 1970s when pattern became a political and cultural weapon in the hands of feminist artists like Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro. The Pattern and Decoration movement kicked open the doors for women to move past the Japanese-inspired stonewares and muscular abstract sculptures that dominated ceramics throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

Natural Synthesis: African Stoneware from the Ramage Collection
Natural Synthesis tells the story of a group of talented Nigerian potters who apprenticed at a colonial British pottery school led by Michael Cardew. Potters like Danlami Aliyu and Ladi Kwali blended British forms and firing techniques with motifs and functional elements from their own aesthetic heritage, then opened their own studios and handed down their legacy to their own students.

Feelies
Over a career that spanned more than seven decades, Arizona-based potter Rose Cabat perfected the Feelie, a matte-glazed pottery form that begs to be held and touched. Feelies brings together more than 100 of Cabat's pots in a show-stopping array highlighting her mastery of glaze and form.

Cosmic Pipes: Pipes from the Clayton and Betty Bailey Collection
The Everson's recently acquired collection of Cosmic Pipes from the late 1960s joins other clay pipes from Indigenous and European cultures in the permanent collection. Ceramist Clayton Bailey created these pipes along with friends Roy De Forest, David Gilhooly, and Maija Peeples-Bright in 1969. Legend has it that Bailey's wife, Betty, an artist in her own right, encouraged the group to make what she called "paranoid pipes" in the form of everyday objects like ice cream cones and flowers to disguise their purpose and blend into their surroundings.

Throughout her career, Queens-based artist Sana Musasama has drawn inspiration from travel and research into global cultures. "Returning to Ourselves" centers around a series of dolls that Musasama produced that mirror African-American topsy-turvy dolls containing a white doll whose skirt can be flipped up to transform it into a Black doll.

Musasama uses this formal structure to juxtapose different figures drawn from the global Black diaspora. "Returning to Ourselves" is rounded out by a series of ceramic houses Musasama began early in her career but returned to during the pandemic to combat looming depression.

Shown together, the quilts provide a colorful and creative vision of different communities across the state while also providing a powerful example of how artists can help present data in a more visually effective way.

Sophia Chai: Character Space
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1987, Chai immigrated to New York City from South Korea as a teenager without knowing English. Looking back, she has described that experience as feeling untethered to any internal compass that she could use to navigate her place in a new country with a new language. She visually explains these experiences to us by reinterpreting the Korean language's characters in photographs that enable us to see the contradictions of visual and verbal communication. Her images rest in the space between intellect and intuition. Chai's curiosity about the interior space of her tool — the large format camera, comparable to the interior space of a mouth — leads to the idea of the camera obscura, a darkened room with a small opening to the world.

Sophia Chai: Character Space
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1987, Chai immigrated to New York City from South Korea as a teenager without knowing English. Looking back, she has described that experience as feeling untethered to any internal compass that she could use to navigate her place in a new country with a new language. She visually explains these experiences to us by reinterpreting the Korean language's characters in photographs that enable us to see the contradictions of visual and verbal communication. Her images rest in the space between intellect and intuition. Chai's curiosity about the interior space of her tool — the large format camera, comparable to the interior space of a mouth — leads to the idea of the camera obscura, a darkened room with a small opening to the world.

The show contrasts the grand with the intimate, the silly with the tragic, and the beauty of perfection with the appeal of imperfection. It also emphasizes the strength and vulnerability of the clown as well as his knowledge and generosity to represent the aspect of humanity that exists in each of us. Corteo is guided through a timeless ceremony in which fantasy teases reality with music, which is both poetic and mischievous.

Kay has always worried about her sister Emma. Worried so much, in fact, that she's mostly put her own life – save for an unsatisfying job teaching science to middle schoolers – on hold, always on call for when Emma faces another mental health crisis. After years of medication and psychiatric hospitals, Kay and her novelist boyfriend Billy decide to bring Emma to a secluded cabin in the woods, as a sort of vacation from the doctors and therapy. But when Emma miraculously starts to get better, Kay is suddenly faced with a terrifying prospect: Finally taking care of herself. Darkly funny and unexpectedly tender, Bess Wohl's Touch(ed) is a deftly observed drama about navigating life, love, and loss in an age of endless anxieties.

Speakeasy Serenade: A Prohibition Cabaret

Mohegan Manor
58 Oswego St., Baldwinsville

The Prohibition era was a period in the United States from 1920 to 1933, during which a nationwide constitutional law prohibited the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages was enacted. The alcohol industry was curtailed by a succession of state legislatures, and finally ended nationwide under the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratified on January 16, 1919. Speakeasy bars came into prominence in the United States during the Prohibition.

Prohibition ended with the ratification of the 21st Amendment, which repealed the 18th Amendment on December 5, 1933, at which point the Speakeasies largely disappeared.

Come dressed in your 1920s finest and join us for a drink and music of the era! Music directed by Colin Keating.

Pick and Mix
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Spring 2023 marks the beginning of a massive project that will convert an area adjacent to the ceramics gallery, which previously held paintings and prints, into dedicated ceramics storage. To accomplish this, we will close a portion of the ceramics gallery to make room for all the sorting and organizing that is to come. More than 200 paintings will come out of storage and hang salon-style in the Everson's upstairs galleries for the exhibition, Off the Rack.

In the face of space limitations like these, most museums would offer you less art—but that is not the Everson way. Instead, we offer you "Pick & Mix," a cornucopia of five fabulous exhibitions under one banner. Pick & Mix highlights the vitality of the Museum's mission to gather works that document the ways that artists draw inspiration from their cultures, as well as the ways that artists give back. Ceramics are an ideal lens to examine the gender roles, politics, and material culture of any given moment.

The Turner's Prize: Art Pottery from the Bill and Dorothy Paul Collection
As the keeper of potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau's legacy, the Everson has a heavy investment in American Art Pottery of the early and mid-20th century. The Turner's Prize highlights the extraordinary collection of Athens, Georgia-based Bill Paul. Instead of following mainstream collectors and market trends, Paul and his late wife Dorothy spent decades gathering rare and exotic works from the Art Pottery era that highlight hand-turned forms and experimental glazes.

Holding Space, Holding Pattern: Radical Decoration Strikes Back
Holding Space, Holding Pattern springs from a moment in the 1970s when pattern became a political and cultural weapon in the hands of feminist artists like Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro. The Pattern and Decoration movement kicked open the doors for women to move past the Japanese-inspired stonewares and muscular abstract sculptures that dominated ceramics throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

Natural Synthesis: African Stoneware from the Ramage Collection
Natural Synthesis tells the story of a group of talented Nigerian potters who apprenticed at a colonial British pottery school led by Michael Cardew. Potters like Danlami Aliyu and Ladi Kwali blended British forms and firing techniques with motifs and functional elements from their own aesthetic heritage, then opened their own studios and handed down their legacy to their own students.

Feelies
Over a career that spanned more than seven decades, Arizona-based potter Rose Cabat perfected the Feelie, a matte-glazed pottery form that begs to be held and touched. Feelies brings together more than 100 of Cabat's pots in a show-stopping array highlighting her mastery of glaze and form.

Cosmic Pipes: Pipes from the Clayton and Betty Bailey Collection
The Everson's recently acquired collection of Cosmic Pipes from the late 1960s joins other clay pipes from Indigenous and European cultures in the permanent collection. Ceramist Clayton Bailey created these pipes along with friends Roy De Forest, David Gilhooly, and Maija Peeples-Bright in 1969. Legend has it that Bailey's wife, Betty, an artist in her own right, encouraged the group to make what she called "paranoid pipes" in the form of everyday objects like ice cream cones and flowers to disguise their purpose and blend into their surroundings.

Sana Musasama: Returning to Ourselves
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Throughout her career, Queens-based artist Sana Musasama has drawn inspiration from travel and research into global cultures. "Returning to Ourselves" centers around a series of dolls that Musasama produced that mirror African-American topsy-turvy dolls containing a white doll whose skirt can be flipped up to transform it into a Black doll.

Musasama uses this formal structure to juxtapose different figures drawn from the global Black diaspora. "Returning to Ourselves" is rounded out by a series of ceramic houses Musasama began early in her career but returned to during the pandemic to combat looming depression.

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2009 and 2010, Janet Biggs traveled to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard with a crew of artists and scientists to document the changing Arctic landscape. As the subject of centuries of exploration, the Arctic was once seen as indifferent to human enterprise, so vast and inhospitable as to be immune to any imposition. Today, scientists expect climate change to leave Arctic summers ice-free as early as the next decade, and Svalbard, located halfway between Europe and the North Pole, finds itself at the epicenter of this metamorphoses. Using footage compiled on her voyages north, Biggs explores this history and the alarming consequences of human enterprise in three videos: Warning Shot (2016), Brightness All Around (2011), and Fade to White (2010). Shown together, these works are a clarion call for a heroic landscape that will completely transform within our lifetimes.

The Everson Museum houses a significant collection of enamels by artists including June Schwarcz, Edward H. Winter, and Ellamarie and Jackson Woolley. Several leading ceramists — for example, Carleton Ball and Jade Snow Wong — also worked in enamel. Exhibition spaces that show ceramics have often championed enamels too, including the Everson's own Ceramic National exhibitions. After waning in popularity in the mid-20th century, enamels are enjoying a comeback thanks to new technologies and the proliferation of community studios and makerspaces that provide shared equipment and knowledge.

Everson Museum of Art

Rachel Ivy Clarke assigns specific fabrics, colors, and shapes to represent various data points about visitors, such as their hometown or the distance they traveled to get to the event, creating quilt designs based on their information. The resulting quilt is a collaborative snapshot of an event that brings together two seemingly disparate things: folk arts — a traditional form of slow, small, community-based creation — and data reflective of our contemporary society, which is rooted in rapid technological advances and the capitalization of mass communication and manufacturing. Shown together, the quilts provide a colorful and creative vision of different communities across the state while also providing a powerful example of how artists can help present data in a more visually effective way.

In 1987, Chai immigrated to New York City from South Korea as a teenager without knowing English. Looking back, she has described that experience as feeling untethered to any internal compass that she could use to navigate her place in a new country with a new language. She visually explains these experiences to us by reinterpreting the Korean language's characters in photographs that enable us to see the contradictions of visual and verbal communication. Her images rest in the space between intellect and intuition. Chai's curiosity about the interior space of her tool — the large format camera, comparable to the interior space of a mouth — leads to the idea of the camera obscura, a darkened room with a small opening to the world.

Pick and Mix
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Spring 2023 marks the beginning of a massive project that will convert an area adjacent to the ceramics gallery, which previously held paintings and prints, into dedicated ceramics storage. To accomplish this, we will close a portion of the ceramics gallery to make room for all the sorting and organizing that is to come. More than 200 paintings will come out of storage and hang salon-style in the Everson's upstairs galleries for the exhibition, Off the Rack.

In the face of space limitations like these, most museums would offer you less art—but that is not the Everson way. Instead, we offer you "Pick & Mix," a cornucopia of five fabulous exhibitions under one banner. Pick & Mix highlights the vitality of the Museum's mission to gather works that document the ways that artists draw inspiration from their cultures, as well as the ways that artists give back. Ceramics are an ideal lens to examine the gender roles, politics, and material culture of any given moment.

The Turner's Prize: Art Pottery from the Bill and Dorothy Paul Collection
As the keeper of potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau's legacy, the Everson has a heavy investment in American Art Pottery of the early and mid-20th century. The Turner's Prize highlights the extraordinary collection of Athens, Georgia-based Bill Paul. Instead of following mainstream collectors and market trends, Paul and his late wife Dorothy spent decades gathering rare and exotic works from the Art Pottery era that highlight hand-turned forms and experimental glazes.

Holding Space, Holding Pattern: Radical Decoration Strikes Back
Holding Space, Holding Pattern springs from a moment in the 1970s when pattern became a political and cultural weapon in the hands of feminist artists like Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro. The Pattern and Decoration movement kicked open the doors for women to move past the Japanese-inspired stonewares and muscular abstract sculptures that dominated ceramics throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

Natural Synthesis: African Stoneware from the Ramage Collection
Natural Synthesis tells the story of a group of talented Nigerian potters who apprenticed at a colonial British pottery school led by Michael Cardew. Potters like Danlami Aliyu and Ladi Kwali blended British forms and firing techniques with motifs and functional elements from their own aesthetic heritage, then opened their own studios and handed down their legacy to their own students.

Feelies
Over a career that spanned more than seven decades, Arizona-based potter Rose Cabat perfected the Feelie, a matte-glazed pottery form that begs to be held and touched. Feelies brings together more than 100 of Cabat's pots in a show-stopping array highlighting her mastery of glaze and form.

Cosmic Pipes: Pipes from the Clayton and Betty Bailey Collection
The Everson's recently acquired collection of Cosmic Pipes from the late 1960s joins other clay pipes from Indigenous and European cultures in the permanent collection. Ceramist Clayton Bailey created these pipes along with friends Roy De Forest, David Gilhooly, and Maija Peeples-Bright in 1969. Legend has it that Bailey's wife, Betty, an artist in her own right, encouraged the group to make what she called "paranoid pipes" in the form of everyday objects like ice cream cones and flowers to disguise their purpose and blend into their surroundings.

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2009 and 2010, Janet Biggs traveled to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard with a crew of artists and scientists to document the changing Arctic landscape. As the subject of centuries of exploration, the Arctic was once seen as indifferent to human enterprise, so vast and inhospitable as to be immune to any imposition. Today, scientists expect climate change to leave Arctic summers ice-free as early as the next decade, and Svalbard, located halfway between Europe and the North Pole, finds itself at the epicenter of this metamorphoses. Using footage compiled on her voyages north, Biggs explores this history and the alarming consequences of human enterprise in three videos: Warning Shot (2016), Brightness All Around (2011), and Fade to White (2010). Shown together, these works are a clarion call for a heroic landscape that will completely transform within our lifetimes.

The resulting quilt is a collaborative snapshot of an event that brings together two seemingly disparate things: folk arts — a traditional form of slow, small, community-based creation — and data reflective of our contemporary society, which is rooted in rapid technological advances and the capitalization of mass communication and manufacturing. Shown together, the quilts provide a colorful and creative vision of different communities across the state while also providing a powerful example of how artists can help present data in a more visually effective way.

"Off the Rack" is the happy by-product of a major renovation of the Everson's on-site art storage.

As hundreds of paintings and framed works are displaced from their racks while renovations take place, the public has an unprecedented opportunity to view objects that have been in deep storage for years, never-before-seen recent acquisitions, and some perennial favorites — all hung together salon-style in our exhibition galleries.

This smorgasbord of paintings and works on paper showcases the breadth and depth of the Museum's collections and provides a glimpse into the world of collections management and care.

Janet Biggs: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2009 and 2010, Janet Biggs traveled to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard with a crew of artists and scientists to document the changing Arctic landscape. As the subject of centuries of exploration, the Arctic was once seen as indifferent to human enterprise, so vast and inhospitable as to be immune to any imposition. Today, scientists expect climate change to leave Arctic summers ice-free as early as the next decade, and Svalbard, located halfway between Europe and the North Pole, finds itself at the epicenter of this metamorphoses. Using footage compiled on her voyages north, Biggs explores this history and the alarming consequences of human enterprise in three videos: Warning Shot (2016), Brightness All Around (2011), and Fade to White (2010). Shown together, these works are a clarion call for a heroic landscape that will completely transform within our lifetimes.

Rachel Ivy Clarke: Material Interactions
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rachel Ivy Clarke assigns specific fabrics, colors, and shapes to represent various data points about visitors, such as their hometown or the distance they traveled to get to the event, creating quilt designs based on their information. The resulting quilt is a collaborative snapshot of an event that brings together two seemingly disparate things: folk arts — a traditional form of slow, small, community-based creation — and data reflective of our contemporary society, which is rooted in rapid technological advances and the capitalization of mass communication and manufacturing. Shown together, the quilts provide a colorful and creative vision of different communities across the state while also providing a powerful example of how artists can help present data in a more visually effective way.

Jewels from the Fire: 20th Century Enamels
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson Museum houses a significant collection of enamels by artists including June Schwarcz, Edward H. Winter, and Ellamarie and Jackson Woolley. Several leading ceramists — for example, Carleton Ball and Jade Snow Wong — also worked in enamel. Exhibition spaces that show ceramics have often championed enamels too, including the Everson's own Ceramic National exhibitions. After waning in popularity in the mid-20th century, enamels are enjoying a comeback thanks to new technologies and the proliferation of community studios and makerspaces that provide shared equipment and knowledge.

After years of medication and psychiatric hospitals, Kay and her novelist boyfriend Billy decide to bring Emma to a secluded cabin in the woods, as a sort of vacation from the doctors and therapy. But when Emma miraculously starts to get better, Kay is suddenly faced with a terrifying prospect: Finally taking care of herself. Darkly funny and unexpectedly tender, Bess Wohl's Touch(ed) is a deftly observed drama about navigating life, love, and loss in an age of endless anxieties.
