How Shall We Be Known? Illustrating Black Lives: Works by London Ladd
Community Folk Art Center

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

London Ladd is a graduate of Syracuse University with an MFA in Illustration. His artwork has been featured in numerous critically acclaimed picture books, newspapers, and magazines, along with community-based murals. He uses a unique mixed media approach combining cut paper textured with acrylic paint, tissue paper, colored pencil, pen & ink to bring his diverse subjects to life. Each image is steeped in intensity and emotion, a reflection of the artist himself. His goal is to open a visual arts community center for lower-income families so they can make their own art in a fun, creative environment.

The Menagerie: Animals in Art
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

The exhibit explores animals as subjects in artwork. Animals have captured the attention of artists in Onondaga County throughout history. Some are wild animals that are integral to the natural landscape. Others are domestic helpers that assist with transportation or supplying food, or loving companions to their owners. The artwork style ranges from George Knapp's traditional early 20th century to Irene Wood's quirky mid 20th century imagination, and will include wood sculptures created by local artist Juan Taylor. The exhibit will be a treat for all animal and art lovers!

Everson Museum of Art

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Curious Vessels: The Rosenfield Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past 30 years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe. Her ambition for her collection has always been clear — instead of donating work to a museum, she would rather donate it to a restaurant, where patrons could enjoy the work as originally intended.

"Curious Vessels" is a celebration of both Rosenfield's eclectic taste and her unrivaled generosity. Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work. Coming this spring, the Everson's new cafe´, Louise, will be stocked with functional vessels from the Rosenfield Collection that you will be able to eat and drink out of.

Helene Starr: Organic Unfolding
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Over the past four decades, artist Helene Starr has built a significant body of work around the act of draping clay slabs into soft crenelated forms that evoke fiber, flesh, and the natural world. Organic Unfolding marks a return to her work that utilizes curving steel forms that let her array her forms in lyrical three-dimensional compositions.

Starr is one of the artists selected as part of the CNY Artist Initiative, a competitive program that highlights the multi-faceted talents of CNY artists.

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rebecca Hutchinson's sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her exhibition is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. "Re-Generation" highlights Hutchinson's cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation's largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, "Re-Generation" takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

Suneil Sanzgiri: Golden Jubilee
Urban Video Project

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

What is liberation when so much has already been taken? In Golden Jubilee, Sanzgiri reconsiders ideas of freedom, loss, and recovery in the wake of colonial and neo-colonial theft. The film asks us to consider "what is liberation when so much has been lost?" Reflecting on the contradictions in the pursuit of 'preservation,' the filmmaker creates a 3D virtual rendering of his father's home in Goa using the same technologies of surveillance that mining companies use to extract iron ore in the region. Sanzgiri's signature blend of 16mm sequences, 3D renders, direct animation, and desktop aesthetics are vividly employed in this lush and ghostly look at questions of heritage, culture, and the remnants of history. (2021, 18:30 minutes)

Suneil Sanzgiri is an artist, researcher, and filmmaker. His work spans experimental video and film, animations, essays, and installations and contends with questions of identity, heritage, culture, and diaspora in relation to structural violence.

Screening begins at dusk.

The Adam Ezra Group
The 443 Social Club

The 443 Social Club
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

Working outside the confines of the traditional music industry, Adam Ezra and his bandmates – Corinna Smith (fiddle), Alex Martin (drums), Poche Ponce (bass) – built a community of fans through sheer grit and determination, regularly performing hundreds of shows a year for the past two decades without any major label or mainstream radio support. Fusing folk intimacy and rock energy with soul power and pop charm, the band first emerged from Boston in the early 2000s and quickly garnered widespread acclaim for their bold, insightful songwriting and interactive, euphoric performances. From hole-in-the-wall bars and house concerts to sold-out headline shows and dates with the likes of Little Big Town, The Wallflowers, Gavin DeGraw, Train, and The Wailers, Ezra and his bandmates treated every single gig like their last, attracting a die-hard following that believed not just in the music, but in their commitment to activism and social change, as well.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Structure/Dissonance" celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l'oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua's first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, "Structure/Dissonance" focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua's intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua's insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying "borscht belt" bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua's singular expressive sculptures.

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For the past 20 years, Robert Shetterly's Americans Who Tell the Truth portrait series has tried to be a lantern that throws its light forward and back — knowing the truth of the past's struggles for justice is essential to seeing clearly the obstacles and possibilities in the future.

ArtRage welcomes Robert back with this exhibition of 20 portraits not previously exhibited in our space. Shetterly selects his subjects as "real, complex human beings, whose acts for the common good can be emulated by all of us, any of us — they need to be emulated by all of us! The saving grace of a healthy democracy is not a handful of heroes but a culture of engaged citizenship inspired by the courage of truth tellers. Courage invigorates democracy. For twenty years it has been the mission of Americans Who Tell the Truth to teach responsibility for the injustices we create and provide role models for how to remedy them for a just society."

(2021, 18:30 minutes)

Suneil Sanzgiri is an artist, researcher, and filmmaker. His work spans experimental video and film, animations, essays, and installations and contends with questions of identity, heritage, culture, and diaspora in relation to structural violence.

Screening begins at dusk.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Structure/Dissonance" celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l'oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua's first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, "Structure/Dissonance" focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua's intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua's insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying "borscht belt" bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua's singular expressive sculptures.

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rebecca Hutchinson's sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her exhibition is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. "Re-Generation" highlights Hutchinson's cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation's largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, "Re-Generation" takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

Rainbow Kitten Surprise
Landmark Theatre

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

As if channeling another dimension where genres simply don't exist, Rainbow Kitten Surprise finds harmony in unpredictability, weaving together lyrical poetry, hummable melodies, and a rush of instrumental eccentricities. They quietly built an audience with Seven + Mary [2013] and RKS [2015] before serving up their 2018 full-length debut for Elektra, "HOW TO: FRIEND, LOVE, FREEFALL" – produced by Grammy Award-winner Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Sleeper Agent). Igniting a two-year whirlwind, it brought the band's total stream tally well past one billion, while they garnered widespread praise from Billboard, TIME, Vice, and NPR who described their sound as "...a mix of jam and indie and whatever else you can throw into the soup ... very earnest, beautiful, political, loving rock n' roll." Meanwhile, "Fever Pitch" marked their first Top 10 at AAA. Not to mention, they've performed on "CBS This Morning Saturday," "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," PBS's "Austin City Limits," and graced the bills of Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Osheaga, to name a few. Moving 80,000 tickets, they embarked on the sold-out Friend, Love Freefall Tour earmarked by a packed night at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and three consecutive gigs in Athens, GA—as chronicled on their first official live album, Live From Athens Georgia, which came out in 2021.

Shetterly selects his subjects as "real, complex human beings, whose acts for the common good can be emulated by all of us, any of us — they need to be emulated by all of us! The saving grace of a healthy democracy is not a handful of heroes but a culture of engaged citizenship inspired by the courage of truth tellers. Courage invigorates democracy.

ArtRage welcomes Robert back with this exhibition of 20 portraits not previously exhibited in our space. Shetterly selects his subjects as "real, complex human beings, whose acts for the common good can be emulated by all of us, any of us — they need to be emulated by all of us! The saving grace of a healthy democracy is not a handful of heroes but a culture of engaged citizenship inspired by the courage of truth tellers. Courage invigorates democracy. For twenty years it has been the mission of Americans Who Tell the Truth to teach responsibility for the injustices we create and provide role models for how to remedy them for a just society."

Suneil Sanzgiri: Golden Jubilee
Urban Video Project

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

What is liberation when so much has already been taken? In Golden Jubilee, Sanzgiri reconsiders ideas of freedom, loss, and recovery in the wake of colonial and neo-colonial theft. The film asks us to consider "what is liberation when so much has been lost?" Reflecting on the contradictions in the pursuit of 'preservation,' the filmmaker creates a 3D virtual rendering of his father's home in Goa using the same technologies of surveillance that mining companies use to extract iron ore in the region. Sanzgiri's signature blend of 16mm sequences, 3D renders, direct animation, and desktop aesthetics are vividly employed in this lush and ghostly look at questions of heritage, culture, and the remnants of history. (2021, 18:30 minutes)

Suneil Sanzgiri is an artist, researcher, and filmmaker. His work spans experimental video and film, animations, essays, and installations and contends with questions of identity, heritage, culture, and diaspora in relation to structural violence.

Screening begins at dusk.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Structure/Dissonance" celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l'oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua's first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, "Structure/Dissonance" focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua's intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua's insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying "borscht belt" bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua's singular expressive sculptures.

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rebecca Hutchinson's sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her exhibition is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. "Re-Generation" highlights Hutchinson's cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation's largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, "Re-Generation" takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past 30 years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe.

Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work.
