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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

An Evening with Neil Tetkowski on the World Mandala Monument
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Join artist Neil Tetkowski as he discusses the year-and-a-half-long process of creating the Common Ground World Mandala, the centerpiece for a new exhibition by the same name.

Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Neil Tetkowki's Common Ground World Mandala will anchor an exhibition by the same title. Created in 2000 to celebrate the new millennium, Tetkowski gathered clay from all 188 member countries of the United Nations, and with these clay samples, created this suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City. The sculpture, a testament to Tetkowski's ability to think beyond boundaries of scale, geography, or politics, will travel to the City of Syracuse, which holds a distinct position as a haven for immigrant populations from all around the world.

The exhibition Common Ground, on view Nov. 12—Apr. 9, 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 terra-cotta horse built by Indian priests, Common Ground uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

?When night falls on Toyland Town, some elves play rough. But it's nothing compared to what happens on The Island of Misfit Toys: the seamy underbelly of the North Pole; Santa's dirty little secret. It's no place for an elf, especially on Christmas Eve. Nick's partner, Smiles Thirdly, just found that out. Twice, at close range. Nick needs your help to investigate, but if you come to The Island, don't be a sap. Act like a misfit and blend in. Better yet, just be yourself.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

The 443 Social Club

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.

Atonement Lutheran Church
116 W. Glen Ave., Syracuse

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening.

The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up.

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.

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 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.

Atonement Lutheran Church

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening.

The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up.

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.

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.

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.

In anticipation of the holidays, OHA invites you to an evening of extended hours, complete with refreshments, musical entertainment, storewide sales, and a special free gift.

To kick off our Holiday Open House, we're welcoming author Glenn H. Ivers for the launch of his new book, Angels of Bastogne, A Remembrance of World War II at 4:00 pm.

Angels of Bastogne is based on the true story of the American doctor, Captain John T. "Jack" Prior of Manlius, and the Belgian nurses Renee Lemaire and Augusta Chiwy who volunteered in his aid station in Bastogne, Belgium, that was bombed on Christmas Eve, 1944. The book also tells the story of soldiers and civilians swept up in the struggle for control of the strategic town during the Battle of the Bulge, and of veterans who reunited in Bastogne in 1994 to reminisce and remember fallen comrades. Angels of Bastogne is a profound exploration of the human condition in the cauldron of mortal conflict: of suffering and compassion, fear and courage, trauma and healing, guilt and redemption, and love, loss and loyalty.

Listen to Glenn discuss his work, grab a copy of Angels of Bastogne, and enjoy refreshments at our downtown museum at 321 Montgomery Street. Please RSVP if you plan to attend!
