According to the Laws of Chance
Light Work Gallery

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

"According to the Laws of Chance" is a subtitle included in many works by the Dadaist painter Jean Arp that describes his systematic yet chance-driven method of creating his simple and playful paintings. Arp would let torn pieces of paper fall to the floor to determine his painting or collage compositions. Although the outcomes are different, Arp's ethos can be found in the work of the photographers selected for this group exhibition.

The artists in this exhibition — Cheryl Miller, Claire A. Warden, Jaclyn Wright, Josh Thorson, Kyle Tata, Louis Chavez, and Will Stith, and Light Work's collection artists, Cecil McDonald, Jr., James Welling, Peter Finnemore, and Rita Hammond — are using and defining chance as a core element of their largely divergent practices. The image-makers in this exhibition embrace the unpredictable and find ways to amplify chance for conceptual and creative purposes. The results are surprising expressions of each artist's voice. Together they showcase the wide-ranging use of chance and highlight it as a vital tool in contemporary photographic practice.

Clayscapes
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Clayscapes is a tribute to clay's ubiquitous presence in our lives, and to the powerful metaphorical and spiritual role that it can play. The Everson's famous collection of ceramics is filled with works that explore the landscape—from artist Robert Arneson's monumental celebration of California's mountainous landscape to Uruguayan-born Lidya Buzio's earthy vessels adorned with the skyline of her adopted home in New York City. The collection contains many commercially produced souvenir plates and pitchers meant to commemorate and memorialize specific places. These wares are a distinctive part of the Museum's collection, and they provide inspiration for contemporary artists such as Paul Scott, who makes commemorative plates that reflect the ways that humans have altered the landscape and exploited its resources.

As artists continue to shape clay, Clayscapes recognizes the ways in which clay shapes us. The Everson's ceramic collection is filled with work that documents the joys and sorrows of humankind's relationship with the Earth. This exhibition pays tribute to the powerful connection between artists and the world around them.

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.

O’tá:ra
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Akwesasne Mohawk artist Natasha Smoke Santiago has spent the last two decades mastering traditional Haudenosaunee pottery techniques. Her unique work incorporates storytelling, activism, and the exploration of native foodways, including experiments with seedkeeping and collaborations with Indigenous chefs. The exhibition's title, O'tá:ra (pronounced oh-da-law) takes its name from a Mohawk phrase that means both "our clay" and "our clan," a testament to clay's foundational role in Haudenosaunee culture.

Ben Altman: I Own This Stolen Land
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

In 2021, photographer Ben Altman and his wife bought 38 acres of land next to their home in rural Danby, NY, to prevent logging and development. He recognized that the title to this beautiful land originated in genocide. More than 200 years ago the Cayuga, one of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, were violently and fraudulently dispersed from the homelands they had occupied and nurtured for over 10,000 years. Despite two centuries of genocidal repression and cultural suppression, they remain resilient, but live almost entirely in diaspora, in Oklahoma, Ontario, and scattered across North America.

"I Own This Stolen Land" is a multidisciplinary project that seeks to acknowledge and take responsibility for the theft of the land; understand the natural systems, economic pressures, ecological stresses, and options for stewardship of the site; invite Cayuga people to visit and to undertake traditional and arts activities, building trust between them and communities in Tompkins County; and develop scalable models for cooperative access to ancestral land.

Invisible Cities
Off the Dock Chamber Festival
Room to Spare

Price: $35
First Presbyterian Church of Skaneateles
97 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles

Room to Spare is a chamber duo made up of composer/performers David Leach and Julia Connor. Built on the pair's original, improvisation-rich compositions and evocative, virtuosic instrumentalism, Room to Spare is at once a gathering place for and conversation between their wide ranging musical influences. Dissolving barriers between diverse musical vocabularies—from jazz and classical to folk, rock, and pop—the duo invites listeners into the present with a genre-defying music of striking immediacy.

The program will consist of selections from the duo's new work inspired by Italo Calvino's novel Invisible Cities.

Folk Music with Guts: The Berwick Fiddle Consort
Off the Dock Chamber Festival

Price: $35
Hartlot Happening
639 Hartlot Rd., Elbridge

Combining historical folk music from Cape Breton, Scotland, and Ireland, 18th-century settings of traditional Scottish tunes, and well-known Baroque pieces, this lively, wide-ranging program explores the deep connections between aural folk traditions and the Baroque canon. Audiences are encouraged to tap their feet to the music, cheer after tune changes, or get up and dance.

Founded in 2018 by Lydia Becker, Julia Connor, and Sarah Douglass, the Berwick Fiddle Consort (BFC) performs historical folk music on period instruments. Approaching fiddle tunes from a multi-faceted perspective that combines baroque violin technique, aural folk traditions, and study of historical manuscripts, BFC offers an exciting counterpoint to the traditional canon of historical repertoire and the classical music experience.

According to the Laws of Chance
Light Work Gallery

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

"According to the Laws of Chance" is a subtitle included in many works by the Dadaist painter Jean Arp that describes his systematic yet chance-driven method of creating his simple and playful paintings. Arp would let torn pieces of paper fall to the floor to determine his painting or collage compositions. Although the outcomes are different, Arp's ethos can be found in the work of the photographers selected for this group exhibition.

The artists in this exhibition — Cheryl Miller, Claire A. Warden, Jaclyn Wright, Josh Thorson, Kyle Tata, Louis Chavez, and Will Stith, and Light Work's collection artists, Cecil McDonald, Jr., James Welling, Peter Finnemore, and Rita Hammond — are using and defining chance as a core element of their largely divergent practices. The image-makers in this exhibition embrace the unpredictable and find ways to amplify chance for conceptual and creative purposes. The results are surprising expressions of each artist's voice. Together they showcase the wide-ranging use of chance and highlight it as a vital tool in contemporary photographic practice.

Everson Museum of Art

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.

Clayscapes
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Clayscapes is a tribute to clay's ubiquitous presence in our lives, and to the powerful metaphorical and spiritual role that it can play. The Everson's famous collection of ceramics is filled with works that explore the landscape—from artist Robert Arneson's monumental celebration of California's mountainous landscape to Uruguayan-born Lidya Buzio's earthy vessels adorned with the skyline of her adopted home in New York City. The collection contains many commercially produced souvenir plates and pitchers meant to commemorate and memorialize specific places. These wares are a distinctive part of the Museum's collection, and they provide inspiration for contemporary artists such as Paul Scott, who makes commemorative plates that reflect the ways that humans have altered the landscape and exploited its resources.

As artists continue to shape clay, Clayscapes recognizes the ways in which clay shapes us. The Everson's ceramic collection is filled with work that documents the joys and sorrows of humankind's relationship with the Earth. This exhibition pays tribute to the powerful connection between artists and the world around them.

Ben Altman: I Own This Stolen Land
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

In 2021, photographer Ben Altman and his wife bought 38 acres of land next to their home in rural Danby, NY, to prevent logging and development. He recognized that the title to this beautiful land originated in genocide. More than 200 years ago the Cayuga, one of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, were violently and fraudulently dispersed from the homelands they had occupied and nurtured for over 10,000 years. Despite two centuries of genocidal repression and cultural suppression, they remain resilient, but live almost entirely in diaspora, in Oklahoma, Ontario, and scattered across North America.

"I Own This Stolen Land" is a multidisciplinary project that seeks to acknowledge and take responsibility for the theft of the land; understand the natural systems, economic pressures, ecological stresses, and options for stewardship of the site; invite Cayuga people to visit and to undertake traditional and arts activities, building trust between them and communities in Tompkins County; and develop scalable models for cooperative access to ancestral land.

Bill Wharton: The Sauce Boss
The 443 Social Club

The 443 Social Club
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

Bill Wharton is a powerhouse entertainer, mixing his Bluesy slide guitar and soulful voice into an unforgettable, high energy show. His very own hot sauce spices up a big pot of gumbo while he spices up the show with his own original Blues. It's a soul-shouting picnic of Rock and Roll brotherhood, with the audience stirring the pot, and at the end of the show, everyone eats. All across the US, into Canada, Europe and Asia, he has served hundreds of thousands of people for free at his legendary live shows. Bill Wharton mixes media like cornbread in his performance. Hot sauce, blues, chicken, funk, onions and okra, peppers and gospel, soul and seafood ... and slide guitar, all go into the gumbo pot that we call community. All of this is the reason they call him The Sauce Boss.

Sunday in the Park with George
Central New York Playhouse
Erica Moser, director

Atonement Lutheran Church
116 W. Glen Ave., Syracuse

Inspired by the painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat, Sunday in the Park with George, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's stunning masterpiece, merges past and present into beautiful, poignant truths about life, love and the creation of art.

The days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat's artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat's descendant – named George and also an artist – finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.
