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.

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.

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.

Hamell on Trial
The 443 Social Club

The 443 Social Club
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

Hamell on Trial is the musical alias of New York-based folk punk hero Ed Hamell. A one-man explosion, he is loud-as-war one minute, stepping off the microphone to whisper to an enthralled audience the next. This is a dynamic performance informed by politics, passion, intelligence and the all-important sense of humor. His caustic wit and devil-may-care attitude has long been a favorite of anti-establishment icons Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Ani DiFranco and the critical elite inciting Rolling Stone magazine to call him "Bald, bold, and superbad!" Henry Rollins says "Hamell is a one man rock show!" He has been described as "Bill Hicks, Hunter S. Thompson, and Joe Strummer all rolled into one" by Philadelphia Weekly and a "one man Tarantino flick: loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply offensive" by the Village Voice.

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.

Hamell on Trial
The 443 Social Club

The 443 Social Club
443 Burnet Ave., Syracuse

Hamell on Trial is the musical alias of New York-based folk punk hero Ed Hamell. A one-man explosion, he is loud-as-war one minute, stepping off the microphone to whisper to an enthralled audience the next. This is a dynamic performance informed by politics, passion, intelligence and the all-important sense of humor. His caustic wit and devil-may-care attitude has long been a favorite of anti-establishment icons Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Ani DiFranco and the critical elite inciting Rolling Stone magazine to call him "Bald, bold, and superbad!" Henry Rollins says "Hamell is a one man rock show!" He has been described as "Bill Hicks, Hunter S. Thompson, and Joe Strummer all rolled into one" by Philadelphia Weekly and a "one man Tarantino flick: loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply offensive" by the Village Voice.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.
