Scriptorium con Safos: Syracuse
Syracuse University Art Museum

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Artist and art historian Josh T Franco stages a highly personal intervention in the Museum's permanent collection galleries by developing the exhibition checklist and staging performances to activate the space. He takes on the fundamental method of compare and contrast, as championed by the 19th-century Swiss art historian Heinrich Wölfflin, in order to consider his place within the discipline. In doing so, he invites museum visitors, especially Syracuse University students, to consider their relationships to their fields of study.

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.

Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Ithaca-based artist Christine Chin creates works that explore the evidence of climate change and its impact on the environment. "Invasive Impressions" presents two bodies of Chin's work: her "Invasive Species Cyanotypes" and "Native Species Cyanotypes." Chin's "Invasive Species" series uses the cyanotype process to document invasive species in the Finger Lakes region. She uses actual specimens, collected herself or through collaborations with organizations that work to monitor and control invasive species, including the Finger Lakes Institute and the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. The "Native Species" series focuses on species that coexist in ecosystems affected by invasive species. Shown together, these works draw attention to the relationships that form between species competing for the same ever-dwindling resources.

"Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions" is part of the Everson CNY Artist Initiative, an exhibition program that celebrates the multi-faceted talents of regional artists.

A Little Bit of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Drawing on the visual narrative techniques of Japanese graphic novels and traditional Chinese landscape painting, students in the Syracuse University School of Architecture developed A Little Bit of Syracuse, an artistic tableau of the city.

Consisting of an 80-foot scroll drawing and 80 hand-made models of local buildings, the exhibition is a narrative study of the often-overlooked structures that form the backdrop of everyday life in Syracuse. Under the direction of visiting studio professors Li Han and Hu Yan, principals of acclaimed Beijing-based Drawing Architecture Studio, 10 students explored the city, each selecting eight normal, unremarkable buildings — coffee shops, laundromats, residences, etc. — to use as architectural elements in their visual narrative of the city.

Those familiar with Syracuse will immediately recognize many, if not all, the building models — the Dunkin Donuts drive-through, CNY Jazz Central, the Byrne Dairy Deli and Convenience Store.

These and other familiar structures can also be identified in the Syracuse cityscape depicted in the 80-foot scroll drawing, which stitches together each building into a visual story that is at once both realistic and abstract, familiar and unfamiliar.

On My Own Time
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"On My Own Time" is a community arts program that links the business and cultural sectors of Central New York to spotlight local workforce members who create visual art 'on their own time.' Its goal is to promote appreciation and support of visual arts and recognize individual creativity in our region. It seeks to create a bridge between the business and arts communities in a collaborative setting that encourages, recognizes, and celebrates creativity in the local workforce. This joint effort promotes an appreciation of the importance of arts and culture to the economy and quality of life of the Central New York community. This year, On My Own Time rings in its 50th annual celebration of the creative talents of the Central New York workforce and the beauty of art in our lives!

Roberta Griffith: Trophies
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For 42 years, Roberta Griffith served as a professor of ceramics and drawing at Hartwick College, cementing her status as a Central New York legend. Griffith now splits her time between Otego, NY, and Kaua'i, Hawaii. After receiving her Master's degree from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 1960, Griffith was awarded a Fulbright grant that brought her to Spain to study with ceramist Josep Llorens i Artigas, who was then at the height of a 30-year collaboration with painter Joan Miró. Griffith returned to the United States in 1964 and has always retained ties to Surrealism and abstraction.

In 1971, Griffith produced "Trophies," a body of work combining inverted stoneware vessels with ethereal constellations of feathers to evoke both body adornments and undersea organisms. While Griffith's Trophies are in tune with 1970s aesthetics, they also challenged the orthodoxy of a field dominated by men. More than 50 years later, this exhibition celebrates Griffith's work for its bold innovation and continuing ability to shock, surprise, and delight.

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.

Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Ithaca-based artist Christine Chin creates works that explore the evidence of climate change and its impact on the environment. "Invasive Impressions" presents two bodies of Chin's work: her "Invasive Species Cyanotypes" and "Native Species Cyanotypes." Chin's "Invasive Species" series uses the cyanotype process to document invasive species in the Finger Lakes region. She uses actual specimens, collected herself or through collaborations with organizations that work to monitor and control invasive species, including the Finger Lakes Institute and the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. The "Native Species" series focuses on species that coexist in ecosystems affected by invasive species. Shown together, these works draw attention to the relationships that form between species competing for the same ever-dwindling resources.

"Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions" is part of the Everson CNY Artist Initiative, an exhibition program that celebrates the multi-faceted talents of regional artists.

A Little Bit of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Drawing on the visual narrative techniques of Japanese graphic novels and traditional Chinese landscape painting, students in the Syracuse University School of Architecture developed A Little Bit of Syracuse, an artistic tableau of the city.

Consisting of an 80-foot scroll drawing and 80 hand-made models of local buildings, the exhibition is a narrative study of the often-overlooked structures that form the backdrop of everyday life in Syracuse. Under the direction of visiting studio professors Li Han and Hu Yan, principals of acclaimed Beijing-based Drawing Architecture Studio, 10 students explored the city, each selecting eight normal, unremarkable buildings — coffee shops, laundromats, residences, etc. — to use as architectural elements in their visual narrative of the city.

Those familiar with Syracuse will immediately recognize many, if not all, the building models — the Dunkin Donuts drive-through, CNY Jazz Central, the Byrne Dairy Deli and Convenience Store.

These and other familiar structures can also be identified in the Syracuse cityscape depicted in the 80-foot scroll drawing, which stitches together each building into a visual story that is at once both realistic and abstract, familiar and unfamiliar.

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.

Roberta Griffith: Trophies
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For 42 years, Roberta Griffith served as a professor of ceramics and drawing at Hartwick College, cementing her status as a Central New York legend. Griffith now splits her time between Otego, NY, and Kaua'i, Hawaii. After receiving her Master's degree from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 1960, Griffith was awarded a Fulbright grant that brought her to Spain to study with ceramist Josep Llorens i Artigas, who was then at the height of a 30-year collaboration with painter Joan Miró. Griffith returned to the United States in 1964 and has always retained ties to Surrealism and abstraction.

In 1971, Griffith produced "Trophies," a body of work combining inverted stoneware vessels with ethereal constellations of feathers to evoke both body adornments and undersea organisms. While Griffith's Trophies are in tune with 1970s aesthetics, they also challenged the orthodoxy of a field dominated by men. More than 50 years later, this exhibition celebrates Griffith's work for its bold innovation and continuing ability to shock, surprise, and delight.

Institute of Queer Ecology: Hysteria
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Hysteria is an original video by Institute of Queer Ecology (IQECO). In this work, the institute uses image, movement, and sound to construct an ecofeminist retelling of the poorly understood "dancing plagues" that swept through Europe between the 10th and the 17th centuries. The afflicted dancers are subtly recast as pointedly subversive agents entangled in environmental contagion and contamination that drive these wild, manic uprisings.

Dancing plagues (also referred to as dancing mania, choreomania, and tarantism) were spontaneous social phenomena in which groups of people, at times in the thousands, danced erratically and without restraint. The mania affected people of all ages and genders, and they often danced until they collapsed from exhaustion or suffered injury and even death.

Shot in and around Syracuse as part of Light Work UVP's Residential Media Art Commission program, Hysteria features many iconic Central New York locations, including the Syracuse Metro Water Treatment Plant on Onondaga Lake, Pratt's Falls, and Stone Quarry Art Park. (12:33, 2023)

Screening begins at dusk on the Everson Museum facade.

Dead to the Core grew out of a series of Jerry Garcia birthday shows hosted by Rodgers at the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and now tours around the northeast. This show at the 443 features an all-star local band. Joining Rodgers (guitar, Strumstick) are Tim Burns of Two Hour Delay (guitar, mandolin), Wendy Sassafras Ramsay (flute, clarinet, accordion), Josh Dekaney (percussion kit), and John Dancks (upright bass).

Griffith now splits her time between Otego, NY, and Kaua'i, Hawaii. After receiving her Master's degree from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 1960, Griffith was awarded a Fulbright grant that brought her to Spain to study with ceramist Josep Llorens i Artigas, who was then at the height of a 30-year collaboration with painter Joan Miró. Griffith returned to the United States in 1964 and has always retained ties to Surrealism and abstraction.

In 1971, Griffith produced "Trophies," a body of work combining inverted stoneware vessels with ethereal constellations of feathers to evoke both body adornments and undersea organisms. While Griffith's Trophies are in tune with 1970s aesthetics, they also challenged the orthodoxy of a field dominated by men. More than 50 years later, this exhibition celebrates Griffith's work for its bold innovation and continuing ability to shock, surprise, and delight.

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.

Institute of Queer Ecology: Hysteria
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Hysteria is an original video by Institute of Queer Ecology (IQECO). In this work, the institute uses image, movement, and sound to construct an ecofeminist retelling of the poorly understood "dancing plagues" that swept through Europe between the 10th and the 17th centuries. The afflicted dancers are subtly recast as pointedly subversive agents entangled in environmental contagion and contamination that drive these wild, manic uprisings.

Dancing plagues (also referred to as dancing mania, choreomania, and tarantism) were spontaneous social phenomena in which groups of people, at times in the thousands, danced erratically and without restraint. The mania affected people of all ages and genders, and they often danced until they collapsed from exhaustion or suffered injury and even death.

Shot in and around Syracuse as part of Light Work UVP's Residential Media Art Commission program, Hysteria features many iconic Central New York locations, including the Syracuse Metro Water Treatment Plant on Onondaga Lake, Pratt's Falls, and Stone Quarry Art Park. (12:33, 2023)

Screening begins at dusk on the Everson Museum facade.

A Little Bit of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Drawing on the visual narrative techniques of Japanese graphic novels and traditional Chinese landscape painting, students in the Syracuse University School of Architecture developed A Little Bit of Syracuse, an artistic tableau of the city.

Consisting of an 80-foot scroll drawing and 80 hand-made models of local buildings, the exhibition is a narrative study of the often-overlooked structures that form the backdrop of everyday life in Syracuse. Under the direction of visiting studio professors Li Han and Hu Yan, principals of acclaimed Beijing-based Drawing Architecture Studio, 10 students explored the city, each selecting eight normal, unremarkable buildings — coffee shops, laundromats, residences, etc. — to use as architectural elements in their visual narrative of the city.

Those familiar with Syracuse will immediately recognize many, if not all, the building models — the Dunkin Donuts drive-through, CNY Jazz Central, the Byrne Dairy Deli and Convenience Store.

These and other familiar structures can also be identified in the Syracuse cityscape depicted in the 80-foot scroll drawing, which stitches together each building into a visual story that is at once both realistic and abstract, familiar and unfamiliar.

She uses actual specimens, collected herself or through collaborations with organizations that work to monitor and control invasive species, including the Finger Lakes Institute and the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. The "Native Species" series focuses on species that coexist in ecosystems affected by invasive species. Shown together, these works draw attention to the relationships that form between species competing for the same ever-dwindling resources.

"Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions" is part of the Everson CNY Artist Initiative, an exhibition program that celebrates the multi-faceted talents of regional artists.

William Mazza, a collective member of Syracuse's Altered Space gallery (1991-1996) and currently an artist based in New York City, uses chance, duration, and accumulation to interpret landscape as the relationship of people to mediated environments. The most material expressions of his wide-ranging projects are drawings, paintings, animations, and video created by translating subjects such as lived environments, spatial relocations, television programs, or text into constructions of landscape.

While Mazza responds to his surroundings in many exploratory ways, in this, his Literary Landscape series exhibited with us, he mines the words from texts written by such authors as Angela Davis, Cecilia Vicuna, Anne Waldman, and Susan Sontag. He then separates them into the letters that fill one written page ... and one painting.

The mania affected people of all ages and genders, and they often danced until they collapsed from exhaustion or suffered injury and even death.

Shot in and around Syracuse as part of Light Work UVP's Residential Media Art Commission program, Hysteria features many iconic Central New York locations, including the Syracuse Metro Water Treatment Plant on Onondaga Lake, Pratt's Falls, and Stone Quarry Art Park. (12:33, 2023)

Screening begins at dusk on the Everson Museum facade.

Roberta Griffith: Trophies
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For 42 years, Roberta Griffith served as a professor of ceramics and drawing at Hartwick College, cementing her status as a Central New York legend. Griffith now splits her time between Otego, NY, and Kaua'i, Hawaii. After receiving her Master's degree from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 1960, Griffith was awarded a Fulbright grant that brought her to Spain to study with ceramist Josep Llorens i Artigas, who was then at the height of a 30-year collaboration with painter Joan Miró. Griffith returned to the United States in 1964 and has always retained ties to Surrealism and abstraction.

In 1971, Griffith produced "Trophies," a body of work combining inverted stoneware vessels with ethereal constellations of feathers to evoke both body adornments and undersea organisms. While Griffith's Trophies are in tune with 1970s aesthetics, they also challenged the orthodoxy of a field dominated by men. More than 50 years later, this exhibition celebrates Griffith's work for its bold innovation and continuing ability to shock, surprise, and delight.

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.

A Little Bit of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Drawing on the visual narrative techniques of Japanese graphic novels and traditional Chinese landscape painting, students in the Syracuse University School of Architecture developed A Little Bit of Syracuse, an artistic tableau of the city.

Consisting of an 80-foot scroll drawing and 80 hand-made models of local buildings, the exhibition is a narrative study of the often-overlooked structures that form the backdrop of everyday life in Syracuse. Under the direction of visiting studio professors Li Han and Hu Yan, principals of acclaimed Beijing-based Drawing Architecture Studio, 10 students explored the city, each selecting eight normal, unremarkable buildings — coffee shops, laundromats, residences, etc. — to use as architectural elements in their visual narrative of the city.

Those familiar with Syracuse will immediately recognize many, if not all, the building models — the Dunkin Donuts drive-through, CNY Jazz Central, the Byrne Dairy Deli and Convenience Store.

These and other familiar structures can also be identified in the Syracuse cityscape depicted in the 80-foot scroll drawing, which stitches together each building into a visual story that is at once both realistic and abstract, familiar and unfamiliar.

Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Ithaca-based artist Christine Chin creates works that explore the evidence of climate change and its impact on the environment. "Invasive Impressions" presents two bodies of Chin's work: her "Invasive Species Cyanotypes" and "Native Species Cyanotypes." Chin's "Invasive Species" series uses the cyanotype process to document invasive species in the Finger Lakes region. She uses actual specimens, collected herself or through collaborations with organizations that work to monitor and control invasive species, including the Finger Lakes Institute and the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. The "Native Species" series focuses on species that coexist in ecosystems affected by invasive species. Shown together, these works draw attention to the relationships that form between species competing for the same ever-dwindling resources.

"Christine Chin: Invasive Impressions" is part of the Everson CNY Artist Initiative, an exhibition program that celebrates the multi-faceted talents of regional artists.

Artist and art historian Josh T Franco stages a highly personal intervention in the Museum's permanent collection galleries by developing the exhibition checklist and staging performances to activate the space. He takes on the fundamental method of compare and contrast, as championed by the 19th-century Swiss art historian Heinrich Wölfflin, in order to consider his place within the discipline. In doing so, he invites museum visitors, especially Syracuse University students, to consider their relationships to their fields of study.

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.

A Little Bit of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Drawing on the visual narrative techniques of Japanese graphic novels and traditional Chinese landscape painting, students in the Syracuse University School of Architecture developed A Little Bit of Syracuse, an artistic tableau of the city.

Consisting of an 80-foot scroll drawing and 80 hand-made models of local buildings, the exhibition is a narrative study of the often-overlooked structures that form the backdrop of everyday life in Syracuse. Under the direction of visiting studio professors Li Han and Hu Yan, principals of acclaimed Beijing-based Drawing Architecture Studio, 10 students explored the city, each selecting eight normal, unremarkable buildings — coffee shops, laundromats, residences, etc. — to use as architectural elements in their visual narrative of the city.

Those familiar with Syracuse will immediately recognize many, if not all, the building models — the Dunkin Donuts drive-through, CNY Jazz Central, the Byrne Dairy Deli and Convenience Store.

These and other familiar structures can also be identified in the Syracuse cityscape depicted in the 80-foot scroll drawing, which stitches together each building into a visual story that is at once both realistic and abstract, familiar and unfamiliar.

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.

Roberta Griffith: Trophies
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For 42 years, Roberta Griffith served as a professor of ceramics and drawing at Hartwick College, cementing her status as a Central New York legend. Griffith now splits her time between Otego, NY, and Kaua'i, Hawaii. After receiving her Master's degree from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 1960, Griffith was awarded a Fulbright grant that brought her to Spain to study with ceramist Josep Llorens i Artigas, who was then at the height of a 30-year collaboration with painter Joan Miró. Griffith returned to the United States in 1964 and has always retained ties to Surrealism and abstraction.

In 1971, Griffith produced "Trophies," a body of work combining inverted stoneware vessels with ethereal constellations of feathers to evoke both body adornments and undersea organisms. While Griffith's Trophies are in tune with 1970s aesthetics, they also challenged the orthodoxy of a field dominated by men. More than 50 years later, this exhibition celebrates Griffith's work for its bold innovation and continuing ability to shock, surprise, and delight.

William Mazza: Forest for Trees
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

William Mazza, a collective member of Syracuse's Altered Space gallery (1991-1996) and currently an artist based in New York City, uses chance, duration, and accumulation to interpret landscape as the relationship of people to mediated environments. The most material expressions of his wide-ranging projects are drawings, paintings, animations, and video created by translating subjects such as lived environments, spatial relocations, television programs, or text into constructions of landscape.

While Mazza responds to his surroundings in many exploratory ways, in this, his Literary Landscape series exhibited with us, he mines the words from texts written by such authors as Angela Davis, Cecilia Vicuna, Anne Waldman, and Susan Sontag. He then separates them into the letters that fill one written page ... and one painting.
