Hiding in Plain Sight
Community Folk Art Center

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

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, the M.F.A. exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

Donald R. Waful: The Remarkable Life Story of a Local Syracusan
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Donald R. Waful has been a dedicated Syracuse citizen for nearly a century. As a young adult, he attended Syracuse University where he earned both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees. He enlisted in the United States army in 1941 and served overseas when the U.S. entered World War II. He met his future wife, army nurse Olga "Cassie" Casciolini, while stationed in Northern Ireland. He then served in the North African campaign where he was taken as a prisoner of war in 1942. He would remain a POW first in Italy, then in Poland, for the duration of the war. He was reunited with Cassie at the end of World War II, afterward settling in Syracuse. Don went on to have a career in insurance and served as President of the Syracuse Chiefs baseball team for 35 years. Waful has remained active in the Syracuse community, both with Syracuse University and the Chiefs baseball team.

This exhibit, designed and installed by SUNY Potsdam undergraduate student Mahala Nyberg, examinies the life of Don Waful, who is nearing 102 years old, and details his experiences during World War II as well as his experiences before and after the war in Syracuse.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Little Shop of Horrors
Syracuse University Drama Department
Brian Cimmet, director

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

In 1982 a space alien invaded Off-Off-Broadway, and in a quest for world domination quickly spawned iterations Off-Broadway, in London's West End, on film, on Broadway, on tours throughout America, in countries around the world, and most insidiously in high schools and community theaters everywhere. Born of a low budget 1960s science fiction movie, the carnivorous plant-like alien, named Audrey II, arrived in a vehicle called Little Shop of Horrors and came armed with an infectious 50s/60s pop-inflected musical score and a delightfully quirky love story. Horticulture never seemed so dangerous, or so much fun. Warning: don't feed the plants.

Book by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman. Choreography by Andrea Leigh-Smith.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Hiding in Plain Sight
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, the M.F.A. exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

In 1982 a space alien invaded Off-Off-Broadway, and in a quest for world domination quickly spawned iterations Off-Broadway, in London's West End, on film, on Broadway, on tours throughout America, in countries around the world, and most insidiously in high schools and community theaters everywhere. Born of a low budget 1960s science fiction movie, the carnivorous plant-like alien, named Audrey II, arrived in a vehicle called Little Shop of Horrors and came armed with an infectious 50s/60s pop-inflected musical score and a delightfully quirky love story. Horticulture never seemed so dangerous, or so much fun. Warning: don't feed the plants.

Donald R. Waful: The Remarkable Life Story of a Local Syracusan
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Donald R. Waful has been a dedicated Syracuse citizen for nearly a century. As a young adult, he attended Syracuse University where he earned both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees. He enlisted in the United States army in 1941 and served overseas when the U.S. entered World War II. He met his future wife, army nurse Olga "Cassie" Casciolini, while stationed in Northern Ireland. He then served in the North African campaign where he was taken as a prisoner of war in 1942. He would remain a POW first in Italy, then in Poland, for the duration of the war. He was reunited with Cassie at the end of World War II, afterward settling in Syracuse. Don went on to have a career in insurance and served as President of the Syracuse Chiefs baseball team for 35 years. Waful has remained active in the Syracuse community, both with Syracuse University and the Chiefs baseball team.

This exhibit, designed and installed by SUNY Potsdam undergraduate student Mahala Nyberg, examinies the life of Don Waful, who is nearing 102 years old, and details his experiences during World War II as well as his experiences before and after the war in Syracuse.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Artist Talk with Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Join us for an Artist Talk with painter Keith Morris Washington, the artist behind our current exhibition, "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape."

Keith Morris Washington was inspired to create this series on lynchings in the mid-1990s. He prepared by researching at the archives of the Shomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City and the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, as well as by closely reading the book One Hundred Years of Lynchings by Ralph Ginzburg. These resources helped him to locate lynching sites, which he then traveled to and photographed, beginning in the summer of 1998. He then returned to his studio to paint from the photographs, both because he did not feel comfortable setting up his canvas in a strange place where his interest in local crimes was frequently not appreciated, and also because he is intrigued by the way people see the world through photographs. – From Basic Black, WGBH Boston

Washington is currently Associate Professor at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He received an MFA in Painting from Tufts University/School of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston.
