Nature & Human Nature: Works by Bob Ripley
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.

Justyna Badach: Land of Epic Battles
Light Work Gallery

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

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

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.

"Kiki Smith and Paper: The Body, the Muse, and the Spirit" will present a selection of the artist's drawings and prints, accented with sculpture from various periods.

This exhibition highlights Smith's passion for paper as she has explored aspects of femininity.

This exhibition was organized by the Oklahoma State University Museum of Art and guest curated by Wendy Weitman.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

Lake Effect Editions
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Lake Effect Editions" celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio. Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at Syracuse University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the Printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture, give critiques to the students they work with, and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds, to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in the School of Art.

North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

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.

"Lake Effect Editions" celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio. Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at Syracuse University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the Printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture, give critiques to the students they work with, and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds, to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in the School of Art.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

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.

Justyna Badach: Land of Epic Battles
Light Work Gallery

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

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

Flowers for Algernon
Central New York Playhouse
William Edward White, director

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

This is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally disabled man, and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his intelligence fourfold. The operation is tried on Charlie, whose IQ rapidly increases to a genius level, far more intelligent than his teacher, Alice Kinnian, or the doctors who created the operating technique. As Charlie approaches the peak of his brilliance, Algernon shows frightening symptoms of regression. The play becomes a race against time in which Charlie tries to keep his new intelligence long enough to save himself and thus continue what he and Alice have found. This is a different kind of play: poignant, romantic, funny and tragic, but with hope of man's indomitable spirit.

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.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

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.

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.

Nature & Human Nature: Works by Bob Ripley
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.

Justyna Badach: Land of Epic Battles
Light Work Gallery

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

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

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.

North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition of 50 images visualizes Berenice Abbott's summer journey in 1954 along the length of U.S. Route 1. Beginning in New York City, she and two companions traveled south to Key West. From there, she turned around and drove north to the highway's terminus in Fort Kent, Maine, arriving in September. During the trip Abbott made more than 400 8" x 10" photographs, and more than 2,000 smaller images using her Rollieflex camera. These represent her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject and have gone largely unrecognized. Abbott captured the road, its towns, and inhabitants at their best and their worst. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott finds distinguishing characteristics of the area she is photographing.

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building

"Lake Effect Editions" celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio. Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at Syracuse University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the Printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture, give critiques to the students they work with, and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds, to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in the School of Art.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, the appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the medical sciences.

Organized by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.

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.

Justyna Badach: Land of Epic Battles
Light Work Gallery

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

"Land of Epic Battles" will feature Justyna Badach's new series of large, hand-made dichromate prints, made using film stills from ISIS training videos. For a year she experimented with darkroom techniques before discovering a 19th-century process that would allow her to use gun powder as a toner. The resulting incendiary prints initially look like antiquated documentation of Middle Eastern sites and landscapes. The texture of the heavy-weight watercolor paper needed for this process adds a layer of abstraction more akin to the language of drawing and painting than photography. Rather than using images of carnage and gore, for which ISIS videos are infamous, Badach's edit reveals a vast, enduring, and majestic landscape that dwarfs the players in the conflict and exposes the futility of war.

Nature & Human Nature: Works by Bob Ripley
Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

Human interaction with nature is a subject that Bob Ripley finds fascinating, and his current exhibit reflects this interest beautifully. Ripley has always been intrigued by wildlife and natural forms. As a boy, he painted on white cardboard shirt boxes using paintings from Outdoor Life and Field & Stream magazines as a reference. Today he finds his subject matter himself, taking photographs and making field notes to help guide him when he renders paintings in his studio at home. Long ago, he made the transition to transparent watercolor techniques on high quality papers. Those who are acquainted with the work of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth will readily understand why Ripley cites these artists as inspirational.
