Dan Shanahan: Scenes of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Dan Shanahan's paintings highlight the quiet beauty found in everyday scenes of city life. The watercolors, which Shanahan paints en plein air and on location, depict residential and downtown city streets. While Shanahan's paintings are mostly devoid of people, they teem with evidence of a small but bustling city: cars line the roads, and businesses prosper along downtown city blocks. Featuring renderings of popular locations, including Armory Square, Franklin Square, and the Westcott and University neighborhoods, Scenes of Syracuse is a love letter to our distinctive urban environment.

Shanahan is a selected artist from the Everson's CNY Artist Initiative, a competitive program that highlights the multi-faceted talents of artists living in Central New York.

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.

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.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

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

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

Forever is Composed of Nows
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

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.

Rommy Torrico: Cabeza en las nubes
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Cabeza en las nubes, directly translated as "head in the clouds," is a body of work that spans a decade of dreamscapes that have been born from liberatory struggle and creative release. Rommy, a queer trans migrant who navigated the world as undocumented until 2018, has been collaborating with communities at the forefront of liberation movements since 2012. As a trans storyteller who lives at the intersections of these identities, they have committed to constantly dreaming and reimagining a refuge of futures where migrant, queer trans communities can live in joy and safety — with access to affordable housing, stable income, and nourishing networks of care. From immigration, to incarceration, to education, the images in this collection explore a range of issues that are impacting trans communities.

Intentionally released in November, Cabeza en las nubes exists as a tribute to this year's Trans Day of Remembrance (November 20) — as a way to honor, uplift and center trans lives and their celestial futures. In the midst of the flurry of anti-trans policies and the many violent realities trans folks have been facing and continue to face, it is Rommy's hope that their work underscores that the time to celebrate the dreams and visions of tender and thriving futures where queer, trans migrants can show up in all their glory is now.

Anni Albers: Work With Materials
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Anni Albers: Work with Materials," a new exhibition that traces the remarkable career of the artist, designer, writer, and teacher, features over 100 drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. With a focus primarily on the extraordinarily productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates her ability to move easily between her work as both an artist and as a designer of functional materials. One of Albers's looms and an interactive "triangle table" will also be featured.

In weaving, designing, and printmaking, Albers's faith in the power of abstraction and her reliance on material knowledge never wavered. Throughout her widely varied, yet consistent and focused output, we see an artist who understood material not only as a vehicle to carry ideas, but more importantly for its physical and structural potential.

Precious Metal: Gold Across Space and Time
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

On August 17, 2017, scientists around the world and at Syracuse University witnessed the collision of two neutron stars that resulted in the production of gold, platinum, and other heavy metals in space. Celebrating the fifth anniversary of this momentous discovery, this exhibition considers how people have exploited gold's unique physical properties to make art and to convey ideas about spirituality, power, and opulence.

This exhibition was organized in partnership with Stefan Ballmer (Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Duncan Brown (Office of Research, Office of Academic Affairs; Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Steven Penn (Physics, Hobart and William Smith Colleges), Romita Ray (Art and Music Histories, College of Arts and Sciences), Daniel Sarmiento (Special Collections Research Center), and Irina Savinetskaya (Special Collections Research Center).

Guanyu Xu: Suspended Status
Light Work Gallery

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

Guanyu Xu's Suspended Status depicts an artist caught in a web of red tape. The work on view for this exhibition comprises images from his ongoing series, Resident Aliens, as well as a large grid of images that he calls Suspension. Both bodies of work use visa status in the United States as a means of framing images that depict people who are suspended between countries and cultures. Their futures hang on faceless state agencies in a churning political current.

2022 MFA Photography Survey
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work announces its inaugural exhibition in partnership with the Art Photography MFA program from the Film and Media Arts Department in SU's College of Visual and Performing Arts. In this survey of all enrolled candidates, we see a wide range of approaches that compliment and vary from one another. These images vividly present themes of cloaking and vulnerability, the subverting of histories, conceptual expressions of time, chance, theater, and formalism. Together, they showcase a wonderful confidence in experimental picture-making processes and they highlight the ever-expanding field of photography through distinct perception and follow-through.

Exhibition includes work by David De Lira, Olivia Dovorany, Lily LaGrange, Qianjin Men, Ryan Mitchell, Tripty Tamang Pakhrin, Wanda-Marie Rana, Anshul Roy, Greeshma Chenni Veettil, Jasmine Veronica, Yanqi Wang, Zifan Wang, and Kate Warren.

Tootsie
Broadway in Syracuse

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Call it "musical comedy heaven" (Rolling Stone). Call it "the most uproarious new musical in years!" (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie!

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theatre tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. Featuring a hilarious Tony-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony winner David Yazbek (The Band's Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic's Pick is "a joyful delight" (The Washington Post) that's "so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!" (Bloomberg). "In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll," raves Rolling Stone. "Tootsie is it!"

Tootsie
Broadway in Syracuse

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Call it "musical comedy heaven" (Rolling Stone). Call it "the most uproarious new musical in years!" (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie!

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theatre tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. Featuring a hilarious Tony-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony winner David Yazbek (The Band's Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic's Pick is "a joyful delight" (The Washington Post) that's "so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!" (Bloomberg). "In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll," raves Rolling Stone. "Tootsie is it!"

Opening: Failure: A Love Story
Syracuse University Drama Department
Thom Miller, director

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

"If you knew how long you had, would you be able to live your life?" This bittersweet consideration is at the center of Failure: A Love Story, a play by Philip Dawkins that is at once whimsical and profound, simple and elegant. In Chicago in 1928, the three Fail sisters — Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty — will meet untimely ends, but their unfortunate fates are tempered by the richness of life and love. With echoes of Thornton Wilder and tinged with the nostalgia of popular songs from a bygone era, this delicately romantic and funny play reminds us that "just because something ends, doesn't mean it wasn't a great success."

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

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

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

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.

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.

Dan Shanahan: Scenes of Syracuse
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Dan Shanahan's paintings highlight the quiet beauty found in everyday scenes of city life. The watercolors, which Shanahan paints en plein air and on location, depict residential and downtown city streets. While Shanahan's paintings are mostly devoid of people, they teem with evidence of a small but bustling city: cars line the roads, and businesses prosper along downtown city blocks. Featuring renderings of popular locations, including Armory Square, Franklin Square, and the Westcott and University neighborhoods, Scenes of Syracuse is a love letter to our distinctive urban environment.

Shanahan is a selected artist from the Everson's CNY Artist Initiative, a competitive program that highlights the multi-faceted talents of artists living in Central New York.

Precious Metal: Gold Across Space and Time
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

On August 17, 2017, scientists around the world and at Syracuse University witnessed the collision of two neutron stars that resulted in the production of gold, platinum, and other heavy metals in space. Celebrating the fifth anniversary of this momentous discovery, this exhibition considers how people have exploited gold's unique physical properties to make art and to convey ideas about spirituality, power, and opulence.

This exhibition was organized in partnership with Stefan Ballmer (Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Duncan Brown (Office of Research, Office of Academic Affairs; Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Steven Penn (Physics, Hobart and William Smith Colleges), Romita Ray (Art and Music Histories, College of Arts and Sciences), Daniel Sarmiento (Special Collections Research Center), and Irina Savinetskaya (Special Collections Research Center).

Anni Albers: Work With Materials
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Anni Albers: Work with Materials," a new exhibition that traces the remarkable career of the artist, designer, writer, and teacher, features over 100 drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. With a focus primarily on the extraordinarily productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates her ability to move easily between her work as both an artist and as a designer of functional materials. One of Albers's looms and an interactive "triangle table" will also be featured.

In weaving, designing, and printmaking, Albers's faith in the power of abstraction and her reliance on material knowledge never wavered. Throughout her widely varied, yet consistent and focused output, we see an artist who understood material not only as a vehicle to carry ideas, but more importantly for its physical and structural potential.

Light Work announces its inaugural exhibition in partnership with the Art Photography MFA program from the Film and Media Arts Department in SU's College of Visual and Performing Arts. In this survey of all enrolled candidates, we see a wide range of approaches that compliment and vary from one another. These images vividly present themes of cloaking and vulnerability, the subverting of histories, conceptual expressions of time, chance, theater, and formalism. Together, they showcase a wonderful confidence in experimental picture-making processes and they highlight the ever-expanding field of photography through distinct perception and follow-through.

Exhibition includes work by David De Lira, Olivia Dovorany, Lily LaGrange, Qianjin Men, Ryan Mitchell, Tripty Tamang Pakhrin, Wanda-Marie Rana, Anshul Roy, Greeshma Chenni Veettil, Jasmine Veronica, Yanqi Wang, Zifan Wang, and Kate Warren.

As a trans storyteller who lives at the intersections of these identities, they have committed to constantly dreaming and reimagining a refuge of futures where migrant, queer trans communities can live in joy and safety — with access to affordable housing, stable income and nourishing networks of care. From immigration, to incarceration, to education, the images in this collection explore a range of issues that are impacting trans communities.

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.

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.

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.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

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

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

Rommy Torrico: Cabeza en las nubes
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Cabeza en las nubes, directly translated as "head in the clouds," is a body of work that spans a decade of dreamscapes that have been born from liberatory struggle and creative release. Rommy, a queer trans migrant who navigated the world as undocumented until 2018, has been collaborating with communities at the forefront of liberation movements since 2012. As a trans storyteller who lives at the intersections of these identities, they have committed to constantly dreaming and reimagining a refuge of futures where migrant, queer trans communities can live in joy and safety — with access to affordable housing, stable income, and nourishing networks of care. From immigration, to incarceration, to education, the images in this collection explore a range of issues that are impacting trans communities.

Intentionally released in November, Cabeza en las nubes exists as a tribute to this year's Trans Day of Remembrance (November 20) — as a way to honor, uplift and center trans lives and their celestial futures. In the midst of the flurry of anti-trans policies and the many violent realities trans folks have been facing and continue to face, it is Rommy's hope that their work underscores that the time to celebrate the dreams and visions of tender and thriving futures where queer, trans migrants can show up in all their glory is now.

"If you knew how long you had, would you be able to live your life?" This bittersweet consideration is at the center of Failure: A Love Story, a play by Philip Dawkins that is at once whimsical and profound, simple and elegant. In Chicago in 1928, the three Fail sisters — Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty — will meet untimely ends, but their unfortunate fates are tempered by the richness of life and love. With echoes of Thornton Wilder and tinged with the nostalgia of popular songs from a bygone era, this delicately romantic and funny play reminds us that "just because something ends, doesn't mean it wasn't a great success."

Light Work announces its inaugural exhibition in partnership with the Art Photography MFA program from the Film and Media Arts Department in SU's College of Visual and Performing Arts. In this survey of all enrolled candidates, we see a wide range of approaches that compliment and vary from one another. These images vividly present themes of cloaking and vulnerability, the subverting of histories, conceptual expressions of time, chance, theater, and formalism. Together, they showcase a wonderful confidence in experimental picture-making processes and they highlight the ever-expanding field of photography through distinct perception and follow-through.

Exhibition includes work by David De Lira, Olivia Dovorany, Lily LaGrange, Qianjin Men, Ryan Mitchell, Tripty Tamang Pakhrin, Wanda-Marie Rana, Anshul Roy, Greeshma Chenni Veettil, Jasmine Veronica, Yanqi Wang, Zifan Wang, and Kate Warren.

Anni Albers: Work With Materials
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Anni Albers: Work with Materials," a new exhibition that traces the remarkable career of the artist, designer, writer, and teacher, features over 100 drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. With a focus primarily on the extraordinarily productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates her ability to move easily between her work as both an artist and as a designer of functional materials. One of Albers's looms and an interactive "triangle table" will also be featured.

In weaving, designing, and printmaking, Albers's faith in the power of abstraction and her reliance on material knowledge never wavered. Throughout her widely varied, yet consistent and focused output, we see an artist who understood material not only as a vehicle to carry ideas, but more importantly for its physical and structural potential.

Precious Metal: Gold Across Space and Time
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

On August 17, 2017, scientists around the world and at Syracuse University witnessed the collision of two neutron stars that resulted in the production of gold, platinum, and other heavy metals in space. Celebrating the fifth anniversary of this momentous discovery, this exhibition considers how people have exploited gold's unique physical properties to make art and to convey ideas about spirituality, power, and opulence.

This exhibition was organized in partnership with Stefan Ballmer (Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Duncan Brown (Office of Research, Office of Academic Affairs; Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Steven Penn (Physics, Hobart and William Smith Colleges), Romita Ray (Art and Music Histories, College of Arts and Sciences), Daniel Sarmiento (Special Collections Research Center), and Irina Savinetskaya (Special Collections Research Center).

From Fairy Slipper to Death Camas: Secrets of the Lost Cedars
Everson Museum of Art
Featuring Catherine Landis

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

Join SUNY ESF Postdoctoral Associate Catherine Landis for an educational evening that will take you through the fascinating ecological history of Syracuse. Early visitors described Syracuse as a "thick and almost impenetrable swamp, thickly inhabited by frogs and water snakes." They were referring to the cedar swamps that covered much of downtown Syracuse and extended out along what we now call Erie Boulevard. Cedar swamps harbored numerous rare plants such as fairy slipper orchid, dragon's mouth orchid, mountain death camas, and many more. Wolves howled, owls hooted, and bears feasted on the berries common in such swamps. Feather mosses like Hylocomium splendens carpeted the forest floor.

Landis will touch on themes presented in the exhibition "Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-generation," now on view at the Everson. It features orchids such as those occurring in the lost cedar swamp, and provides a chance to reflect on land history, former biological wealth, habitats forsaken and the challenge of protecting what pieces remain.

Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

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.

Rommy Torrico: Cabeza en las nubes
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Cabeza en las nubes, directly translated as "head in the clouds," is a body of work that spans a decade of dreamscapes that have been born from liberatory struggle and creative release. Rommy, a queer trans migrant who navigated the world as undocumented until 2018, has been collaborating with communities at the forefront of liberation movements since 2012. As a trans storyteller who lives at the intersections of these identities, they have committed to constantly dreaming and reimagining a refuge of futures where migrant, queer trans communities can live in joy and safety — with access to affordable housing, stable income, and nourishing networks of care. From immigration, to incarceration, to education, the images in this collection explore a range of issues that are impacting trans communities.

Intentionally released in November, Cabeza en las nubes exists as a tribute to this year's Trans Day of Remembrance (November 20) — as a way to honor, uplift and center trans lives and their celestial futures. In the midst of the flurry of anti-trans policies and the many violent realities trans folks have been facing and continue to face, it is Rommy's hope that their work underscores that the time to celebrate the dreams and visions of tender and thriving futures where queer, trans migrants can show up in all their glory is now.

Price: $22
Atonement Lutheran Church
116 W. Glen Ave., Syracuse

We Want More tells the story of aging record producer Roger Mackson as he guides young songwriter Sid Williams through the rock industry and helps him find the success Roger lost so many years ago. Amidst Sid's tumultuous journey, we also see the story of Grace Anders, Sid's ex-girlfriend and an artist in her own right, as she attempts to finish a series of paintings while exploring a new relationship. The ways their stories diverge and converge paint a picture of the pressures artists feel and the isolation and disconnect they can run into while pursuing their art.

This is a workshop of an original music production written by CNY Playhouse performer Ian Doherty.

Failure: A Love Story
Syracuse University Drama Department
Thom Miller, director

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

"If you knew how long you had, would you be able to live your life?" This bittersweet consideration is at the center of Failure: A Love Story, a play by Philip Dawkins that is at once whimsical and profound, simple and elegant. In Chicago in 1928, the three Fail sisters — Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty — will meet untimely ends, but their unfortunate fates are tempered by the richness of life and love. With echoes of Thornton Wilder and tinged with the nostalgia of popular songs from a bygone era, this delicately romantic and funny play reminds us that "just because something ends, doesn't mean it wasn't a great success."

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.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

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

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

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.

Anni Albers: Work With Materials
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Anni Albers: Work with Materials," a new exhibition that traces the remarkable career of the artist, designer, writer, and teacher, features over 100 drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. With a focus primarily on the extraordinarily productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates her ability to move easily between her work as both an artist and as a designer of functional materials. One of Albers's looms and an interactive "triangle table" will also be featured.

In weaving, designing, and printmaking, Albers's faith in the power of abstraction and her reliance on material knowledge never wavered. Throughout her widely varied, yet consistent and focused output, we see an artist who understood material not only as a vehicle to carry ideas, but more importantly for its physical and structural potential.

Precious Metal: Gold Across Space and Time
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

On August 17, 2017, scientists around the world and at Syracuse University witnessed the collision of two neutron stars that resulted in the production of gold, platinum, and other heavy metals in space. Celebrating the fifth anniversary of this momentous discovery, this exhibition considers how people have exploited gold's unique physical properties to make art and to convey ideas about spirituality, power, and opulence.

This exhibition was organized in partnership with Stefan Ballmer (Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Duncan Brown (Office of Research, Office of Academic Affairs; Physics, College of Arts and Sciences), Steven Penn (Physics, Hobart and William Smith Colleges), Romita Ray (Art and Music Histories, College of Arts and Sciences), Daniel Sarmiento (Special Collections Research Center), and Irina Savinetskaya (Special Collections Research Center).

2022 MFA Photography Survey
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work announces its inaugural exhibition in partnership with the Art Photography MFA program from the Film and Media Arts Department in SU's College of Visual and Performing Arts. In this survey of all enrolled candidates, we see a wide range of approaches that compliment and vary from one another. These images vividly present themes of cloaking and vulnerability, the subverting of histories, conceptual expressions of time, chance, theater, and formalism. Together, they showcase a wonderful confidence in experimental picture-making processes and they highlight the ever-expanding field of photography through distinct perception and follow-through.

Exhibition includes work by David De Lira, Olivia Dovorany, Lily LaGrange, Qianjin Men, Ryan Mitchell, Tripty Tamang Pakhrin, Wanda-Marie Rana, Anshul Roy, Greeshma Chenni Veettil, Jasmine Veronica, Yanqi Wang, Zifan Wang, and Kate Warren.
