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.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Recent Acquisitions in Ceramics
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

A Few Good Men
Central New York Playhouse
Dustin Czarny, director

CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

A Raisin in the Sun
Syracuse Stage
Timothy Douglas, director

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

Lorraine Hansberry's masterwork has rightfully earned its place among the great American plays because it speaks anew to each generation. The story of the Younger family—three generations trying to build a better life on Chicago's South Side—resonates loudly with those pursuing the American dream today. Whose dreams get realized and whose deferred? The power of Hansberry's writing makes A Raisin in the Sun as vital today as in 1959.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art

The Everson began collecting ceramics in 1916 with a purchase of 32 porcelains by preeminent Arts and Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, which ultimately built the framework for the Museum's focus on works in clay. In 2016, the Museum unveiled a new ceramics gallery and implemented a plan to actively acquire new works for the ceramics collection, which now numbers more than 5000 works dating from antiquity to the present day. This exhibition features a small and diverse selection of works acquired over the last three years through gifts and purchases. Forty-nine ceramics entered the collection during this period, ranging from functional vessels made by the South American Chavin civilization between the ninth and third centuries BCE to sculptural objects created by contemporary artists across America.

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

Concert rescheduled from January 5.

Milkweed is the collaboration of three artists—Joseph Alston, guitar and vocals; Jacqualine Colombo, guitar and vocals; and Peter Lister, upright bass and vocals. Without committing to one genre, Milkweed has pulled from many of the great aspects of American music and created their own brand of American song and story telling.

Whether it is bluegrass guitar flat picking, Chicago blues harmonica, Irish ballads, or Jersey shore folk songs, Milkweed weaves together the sounds that make up the rich tapestry of American music history. With their lyrics they set themselves apart from the norm, taking the simple stories of everyday people and telling them through the lens of dreams and what it means to be a human. The root of the band's sound is in the use of three-part harmony to impart a sense of importance and depth to their lyrics that brings the listener into their songs.

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For over 20 years, Sheila Pepe has constructed large-scale, ephemeral installations and sculpture made out of domestic and industrial fibrous materials.

Hot Mess Formalism is organized by the Phoenix Art Museum and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog.

A Few Good Men
Central New York Playhouse
Dustin Czarny, director

CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.
