Gallery Exhibit: The Narrative Tradition in the 21st Century: The Art of Randy Elliott and Richard Williams
Onondaga Community College

Price: Free
Ann Felton Multicultural Center and Gallery
Onondaga Community College, Syracuse

About Richard Williams:
As a self-taught illustrator I was able to sidestep the many academic pitfalls that plague contemporary artists, such as the belief that drawing skills are not important. My work is steeped in the tradition of craftsmanship and the importance of the narrative. Art in my opinion serves a social function, which can encompass selling a product to the public or making critical commentary on society and culture, and anything in between. To accomplish this, the artist needs to communicate in a simple, clear and powerful way. To do this one needs to have a firm grasp of the basic skills of draftsmanship, color, painting technique and storytelling.

About Randy Elliott:
Randy Elliott began his professional art career in 1988, inking the Dungeons & Dragons, Dragonlance comic book for DC Comics. That job began a career that continues until the present. Over the course of the last twenty-odd years, Randy has inked and/or penciled comic books for DC, Archie, Marvel, Dark Horse, Valiant and a number of smaller publishers. He has also painted images for clients like, Wizards of the Coast, Alderac Entertainment Group, Battlefront Miniatures, Hasbro and others.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Time, Again Time: Works by Ana Tiscornia
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In "Time, again time," the artist reflects on ordered fragments of a disordered world. An activist and renowned Latin American artist, Ana Tiscornia brings a mixed-media installation that curator Pedro Cuperman describes as "the outcome of a tale, where we have a fragmented world, where the pieces are somehow geometrically organic, logical... a kind of architecture of catastrophe. It is about the artist's obsession with organizing her world after having lived through the tragedies of military dictatorships in her home land, and the present catastrophes, wars that we endure in our own time. Ana's work demands from the viewer a sort of reconstruction, reintegration of the work, and our world.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Introduced in February at the American International Toy Fair, TRAK2BRIK is a system of adapters that links wooden railway track to pegged construction bricks and has dozens of slide-on toy accessories.

Wilson's career evolved from an early fascination with mechanical, scientific and electrical products. While at SU studying industrial design, he wrote his graduating thesis on preschool educational developmental toys.

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan.

RESOURCED/response: The Art of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative and SU Fiber Arts
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition is a look into the environmental devastation that plagues the earth and its beings. It is also a look into the environmental justice movement that works to correct and heal the destruction. RESOURCED is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative in 2010, focusing on resource extraction and climate issues, which will be used to help ask important questions about our environment. At the beginning of the spring semester 2012, students from the introduction to fibers course at Syracuse University viewed images from RESOURCED.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

For Syracuse, 2010: Selections of Truisms and Survival
Urban Video Project

Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Internationally renowned artist Jenny Holzer created "For Syracuse" as a site-specific installation that streams across the facade of Syracuse Stage on an LED curtain. The installation features 272 aphorisms from her celebrated series "Truisms, and Survival" that challenge viewer's assumptions about the world we live in through the use of language as art. Whether questioning consumerist impulses, or lamenting the struggles of daily living Jenny Holzer always provokes a response. Her work crosses the boundary between poetry and visual art, and suggests both the limitations and power of technology and the information age.

For more than 30 years, this influential American conceptual artist has been creating subversive works that blend in among advertisements in public spaces questioning and confronting our passive consumption of information. Since the early 1970s, Holzer has been collecting and writing phrases and aphorisms found in literature, philosophy and contemporary culture. She calls these summaries her Truisms, and has printed them on bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches, footstools, stickers, t-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, video, sound, light projection, and the Internet. In 1982, Holzer installed Truisms on one of Time Square's gigantic LED billboards. In the 1980s, for her Survival Series, Holzer adopted more personal and urgent messages about the realities of everyday living. Power, vulnerability, violence, tenderness, moral struggles and motherhood are courageously chronicled in this series which continuously prods the viewer to question the role of individuals in society.

Many who are familiar with Chicago's theater scene know of the Albany Park Theater Project's (APTP) amazing work with youth. Nancy Kelly's formidable new documentary Trust allows us an in-depth look at APTP's story-telling process and how their work helps transform the lives of young people. The story of Marlin, originally from Honduras, is one of sexual violence, separation from her mother, and the harsh realities of immigration. Trust follows her harrowing, personal story that then becomes the basis for an original play. The film captures the respect, support and tenderness that APTP's ensemble members show Marlin and beautifully illustrates the healing power of art and community.

Gallery Exhibit: The Narrative Tradition in the 21st Century: The Art of Randy Elliott and Richard Williams
Onondaga Community College

Price: Free
Ann Felton Multicultural Center and Gallery
Onondaga Community College, Syracuse

About Richard Williams:
As a self-taught illustrator I was able to sidestep the many academic pitfalls that plague contemporary artists, such as the belief that drawing skills are not important. My work is steeped in the tradition of craftsmanship and the importance of the narrative. Art in my opinion serves a social function, which can encompass selling a product to the public or making critical commentary on society and culture, and anything in between. To accomplish this, the artist needs to communicate in a simple, clear and powerful way. To do this one needs to have a firm grasp of the basic skills of draftsmanship, color, painting technique and storytelling.

About Randy Elliott:
Randy Elliott began his professional art career in 1988, inking the Dungeons & Dragons, Dragonlance comic book for DC Comics. That job began a career that continues until the present. Over the course of the last twenty-odd years, Randy has inked and/or penciled comic books for DC, Archie, Marvel, Dark Horse, Valiant and a number of smaller publishers. He has also painted images for clients like, Wizards of the Coast, Alderac Entertainment Group, Battlefront Miniatures, Hasbro and others.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a single vessel. Stein says of her work, "Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself."

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, NY.

An activist and renowned Latin American artist, Ana Tiscornia brings a mixed-media installation that curator Pedro Cuperman describes as "the outcome of a tale, where we have a fragmented world, where the pieces are somehow geometrically organic, logical... a kind of architecture of catastrophe. It is about the artist's obsession with organizing her world after having lived through the tragedies of military dictatorships in her home land, and the present catastrophes, wars that we endure in our own time. Ana's work demands from the viewer a sort of reconstruction, reintegration of the work, and our world.

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

RESOURCED/response: The Art of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative and SU Fiber Arts
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition is a look into the environmental devastation that plagues the earth and its beings. It is also a look into the environmental justice movement that works to correct and heal the destruction. RESOURCED is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative in 2010, focusing on resource extraction and climate issues, which will be used to help ask important questions about our environment. At the beginning of the spring semester 2012, students from the introduction to fibers course at Syracuse University viewed images from RESOURCED.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

For Syracuse, 2010: Selections of Truisms and Survival
Urban Video Project

Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Internationally renowned artist Jenny Holzer created "For Syracuse" as a site-specific installation that streams across the facade of Syracuse Stage on an LED curtain. The installation features 272 aphorisms from her celebrated series "Truisms, and Survival" that challenge viewer's assumptions about the world we live in through the use of language as art. Whether questioning consumerist impulses, or lamenting the struggles of daily living Jenny Holzer always provokes a response. Her work crosses the boundary between poetry and visual art, and suggests both the limitations and power of technology and the information age.

For more than 30 years, this influential American conceptual artist has been creating subversive works that blend in among advertisements in public spaces questioning and confronting our passive consumption of information. Since the early 1970s, Holzer has been collecting and writing phrases and aphorisms found in literature, philosophy and contemporary culture. She calls these summaries her Truisms, and has printed them on bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches, footstools, stickers, t-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, video, sound, light projection, and the Internet. In 1982, Holzer installed Truisms on one of Time Square's gigantic LED billboards. In the 1980s, for her Survival Series, Holzer adopted more personal and urgent messages about the realities of everyday living. Power, vulnerability, violence, tenderness, moral struggles and motherhood are courageously chronicled in this series which continuously prods the viewer to question the role of individuals in society.

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

Gallery Exhibit: The Narrative Tradition in the 21st Century: The Art of Randy Elliott and Richard Williams
Onondaga Community College

Price: Free
Ann Felton Multicultural Center and Gallery
Onondaga Community College, Syracuse

About Richard Williams:
As a self-taught illustrator I was able to sidestep the many academic pitfalls that plague contemporary artists, such as the belief that drawing skills are not important. My work is steeped in the tradition of craftsmanship and the importance of the narrative. Art in my opinion serves a social function, which can encompass selling a product to the public or making critical commentary on society and culture, and anything in between. To accomplish this, the artist needs to communicate in a simple, clear and powerful way. To do this one needs to have a firm grasp of the basic skills of draftsmanship, color, painting technique and storytelling.

About Randy Elliott:
Randy Elliott began his professional art career in 1988, inking the Dungeons & Dragons, Dragonlance comic book for DC Comics. That job began a career that continues until the present. Over the course of the last twenty-odd years, Randy has inked and/or penciled comic books for DC, Archie, Marvel, Dark Horse, Valiant and a number of smaller publishers. He has also painted images for clients like, Wizards of the Coast, Alderac Entertainment Group, Battlefront Miniatures, Hasbro and others.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Designer Roy Wilson, a 1970 alumnus of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will exhibit his award-winning educational toy designs. The exhibit features Wilson's work from the Learning Curve Toy Co., including the 1992 Thomas Wooden Railway project and the 1994 Lamaze Infant Development System, which he researched, designed, engineered and manufactured. The exhibition will also include his most recent invention in toys, TRAK2BRIK Adapters. Introduced in February at the American International Toy Fair, TRAK2BRIK is a system of adapters that links wooden railway track to pegged construction bricks and has dozens of slide-on toy accessories.

Wilson's career evolved from an early fascination with mechanical, scientific and electrical products. While at SU studying industrial design, he wrote his graduating thesis on preschool educational developmental toys. He started his own design business, Creative International, in 1967 and decided to remain independent and/or work on long-term contracts. To date, he has won 47 national and international awards for design excellence.

Mort tends toward extreme realism, bordering on trompe l'oeil in which he is capable of creating a spatial illusion. Glisson's impressionistic pieces, like the styles of those artists who inspire him, create an emotional illusion. Mort leans more toward depicting still life.

Kala Stein's exhibition Form and Plenty showcases her innovative ceramics based on archetypal utilitarian forms, like vases, bottles, and cups. By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a single vessel. Stein says of her work, "Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself."

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, NY.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz

Price: $5 suggested donation
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

For Syracuse, 2010: Selections of Truisms and Survival
Urban Video Project

Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Internationally renowned artist Jenny Holzer created "For Syracuse" as a site-specific installation that streams across the facade of Syracuse Stage on an LED curtain. The installation features 272 aphorisms from her celebrated series "Truisms, and Survival" that challenge viewer's assumptions about the world we live in through the use of language as art. Whether questioning consumerist impulses, or lamenting the struggles of daily living Jenny Holzer always provokes a response. Her work crosses the boundary between poetry and visual art, and suggests both the limitations and power of technology and the information age.

For more than 30 years, this influential American conceptual artist has been creating subversive works that blend in among advertisements in public spaces questioning and confronting our passive consumption of information. Since the early 1970s, Holzer has been collecting and writing phrases and aphorisms found in literature, philosophy and contemporary culture. She calls these summaries her Truisms, and has printed them on bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches, footstools, stickers, t-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, video, sound, light projection, and the Internet. In 1982, Holzer installed Truisms on one of Time Square's gigantic LED billboards. In the 1980s, for her Survival Series, Holzer adopted more personal and urgent messages about the realities of everyday living. Power, vulnerability, violence, tenderness, moral struggles and motherhood are courageously chronicled in this series which continuously prods the viewer to question the role of individuals in society.

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

The C Word
Featuring Anna Phillips, Amy Carlson, Jessimae Peluso

Price: $15
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

"The C Word" features three funny women who pull no punches as they deliver clever, fearless and provocative humor from three diverse perspectives.

From New Rochelle, NY, Amy Carlson (SiriusXM Radio, Real Time with Bill Maher, Paid or Pain) is known for poking fun at her own personal failures and commenting on the idiosyncrasies of life. Carlson brings her acid tongue and sardonic wit to the Jazz Central stage for the first time.

Syracuse's own Jessimae Peluso (NBC-TV, The Tyra Banks Show, The Huffington Post) returns from New York City with her high-energy, raw, straight-forward comedy. Peluso, a graduate of Henniger High School, was a finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival, the Women In Comedy Festival (WICF), New York City's "Funniest Comedian Contest," was featured on the 5 Funny Females Tour, and headlines the "Hometown Humour Tour" every year at Syracuse's Palace Theatre.

A Baltimore native, Anna Phillips is a local up-and-coming comic who appears regularly around Syracuse and Upstate New York, including successful charity performances for The Wounded Warrior Project and Alzheimer's Association. Phillips, the producer of The C Word, says she hopes to continue to bring talented, professional comedians to Syracuse, including those who usually perform in bigger cities, for an affordable and intimate night of entertainment.

The C Word has a little bit of everything for everyone, from slam poetry to stand-up and storytelling, and guarantees a lot of laughter. This is not your average stand-up comedy show. This is an experience not to be missed.

An Indigenous American Pictorial Epic: Storytelling from the 16th Century Mexican Codex-Mapa de Cuauhtinchan
Syracuse University College of Arts and Sciences
Featuring David Carrasco

Price: Free
Hendricks Chapel
Syracuse University, Syracuse

David Carrasco, Neil L. Rudenstine Professor of the Study of Latin America at Harvard Divinity School and Harvard's Department of Anthropology, will give a lecture "An Indigenous American Pictorial Epic: Storytelling from the 16th Century Mexican Codex-Mapa de Cuauhtinchan (Place of the Eagle's Nest)."

This event will also feature a performance by the Brazilian Ensemble at 6:30 pm.

Carrasco is a Mexican American historian of religions with a particular interest in religious dimensions in human experience, Mesoamerican cities as symbols, immigration and the Mexican-American borderlands. Working with Mexican archaeologists, he has carried out 20 years of research in the excavations and archives associated with the sites of Teotihuacan and Mexico-Tenochtitlan.

He has participated in spirited debates at Harvard with Cornel West and Samuel Huntington on the topics of race, culture and religion in the Americas. This has resulted in publications on ritual violence and sacred cities; religion and transculturation; the Great Aztec Temple; and the history of religions in Mesoamerica and Latino/a religions.

Recent collaborative publications include "Cave, City, and Eagle's Nest: An Interpretive Journey Through the Mapa de Cuauhtinchan No. 2" (University of New Mexico Press, 2007), gold winner of the 2008 PubWest Book Design Award in the academic book/nontrade category and featured in the New York Review of Books.

His work has included a special emphasis on the religious dimensions of Latino experience—mestizaje, the myth of Aztlan, transculturation and La Virgen de Guadalupe.

He is co-producer of the film "Alambrista: The Director's Cut," which puts a human face on the life and struggles of undocumented Mexican farm workers in the United States, and he edited the book "Alambrista and the U.S.-Mexico Border: Film, Music, and Stories of Undocumented Immigrants" (University of New Mexico Press). He is editor-in-chief of the award-winning three-volume Oxford Encyclopedia of Mesoamerican Cultures. Carrasco has received the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle, the highest honor the Mexican government gives to a foreign national.

Mort tends toward extreme realism, bordering on trompe l'oeil in which he is capable of creating a spatial illusion. Glisson's impressionistic pieces, like the styles of those artists who inspire him, create an emotional illusion. Mort leans more toward depicting still life.

Kala Stein: Form & Plenty
Gandee Gallery

Gandee Gallery
7846 Main St., Fabius

Kala Stein's exhibition Form and Plenty showcases her innovative ceramics based on archetypal utilitarian forms, like vases, bottles, and cups. By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a single vessel. Stein says of her work, "Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself."

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, NY.

For Syracuse, 2010: Selections of Truisms and Survival
Urban Video Project

Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Internationally renowned artist Jenny Holzer created "For Syracuse" as a site-specific installation that streams across the facade of Syracuse Stage on an LED curtain. The installation features 272 aphorisms from her celebrated series "Truisms, and Survival" that challenge viewer's assumptions about the world we live in through the use of language as art. Whether questioning consumerist impulses, or lamenting the struggles of daily living Jenny Holzer always provokes a response. Her work crosses the boundary between poetry and visual art, and suggests both the limitations and power of technology and the information age.

For more than 30 years, this influential American conceptual artist has been creating subversive works that blend in among advertisements in public spaces questioning and confronting our passive consumption of information. Since the early 1970s, Holzer has been collecting and writing phrases and aphorisms found in literature, philosophy and contemporary culture. She calls these summaries her Truisms, and has printed them on bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches, footstools, stickers, t-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, video, sound, light projection, and the Internet. In 1982, Holzer installed Truisms on one of Time Square's gigantic LED billboards. In the 1980s, for her Survival Series, Holzer adopted more personal and urgent messages about the realities of everyday living. Power, vulnerability, violence, tenderness, moral struggles and motherhood are courageously chronicled in this series which continuously prods the viewer to question the role of individuals in society.

William Wegman: Flo Flow (2011)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The video "Flo Flow" is William Wegman's latest in a long line of human-canid collaborations. It was while he was in Long Beach in the 1970s that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a fruitful collaboration of many years. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes. Ever since, Weimaraner-actors have peopled Wegman's uncanny imaginative universe, a reflection on both the human-ness of "animals" and the strangeness of humans.

William Wegman lives in New York and Maine where he continues to make videos, to take photographs and to make drawings and paintings.

Kala Stein: Form & Plenty
Gandee Gallery

Gandee Gallery
7846 Main St., Fabius

Kala Stein's exhibition Form and Plenty showcases her innovative ceramics based on archetypal utilitarian forms, like vases, bottles, and cups. By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a single vessel. Stein says of her work, "Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself."

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, NY.

Well-known for his graceful yet imposing steel sculpture, Drew Goerlitz, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the State University of New York Plattsburg, presents a new body of work at the Everson Museum of Art. Reliquaries continues the reoccurring theme of containment, concealment and privacy best described by Goerlitz himself: "My interpretation of reliquary is not to hold a sacred object or relic, but to engage the viewer with the form and tension of the unknown interior. The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Gallery Exhibit: The Narrative Tradition in the 21st Century: The Art of Randy Elliott and Richard Williams
Onondaga Community College

Price: Free
Ann Felton Multicultural Center and Gallery
Onondaga Community College, Syracuse

About Richard Williams:
As a self-taught illustrator I was able to sidestep the many academic pitfalls that plague contemporary artists, such as the belief that drawing skills are not important. My work is steeped in the tradition of craftsmanship and the importance of the narrative. Art in my opinion serves a social function, which can encompass selling a product to the public or making critical commentary on society and culture, and anything in between. To accomplish this, the artist needs to communicate in a simple, clear and powerful way. To do this one needs to have a firm grasp of the basic skills of draftsmanship, color, painting technique and storytelling.

About Randy Elliott:
Randy Elliott began his professional art career in 1988, inking the Dungeons & Dragons, Dragonlance comic book for DC Comics. That job began a career that continues until the present. Over the course of the last twenty-odd years, Randy has inked and/or penciled comic books for DC, Archie, Marvel, Dark Horse, Valiant and a number of smaller publishers. He has also painted images for clients like, Wizards of the Coast, Alderac Entertainment Group, Battlefront Miniatures, Hasbro and others.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

In "Time, again time," the artist reflects on ordered fragments of a disordered world. An activist and renowned Latin American artist, Ana Tiscornia brings a mixed-media installation that curator Pedro Cuperman describes as "the outcome of a tale, where we have a fragmented world, where the pieces are somehow geometrically organic, logical... a kind of architecture of catastrophe. It is about the artist's obsession with organizing her world after having lived through the tragedies of military dictatorships in her home land, and the present catastrophes, wars that we endure in our own time. Ana's work demands from the viewer a sort of reconstruction, reintegration of the work, and our world.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky
Light Work Gallery

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Educational Toys by Roy Wilson
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Genet Design Gallery
The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Designer Roy Wilson, a 1970 alumnus of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will exhibit his award-winning educational toy designs. The exhibit features Wilson's work from the Learning Curve Toy Co., including the 1992 Thomas Wooden Railway project and the 1994 Lamaze Infant Development System, which he researched, designed, engineered and manufactured. The exhibition will also include his most recent invention in toys, TRAK2BRIK Adapters. Introduced in February at the American International Toy Fair, TRAK2BRIK is a system of adapters that links wooden railway track to pegged construction bricks and has dozens of slide-on toy accessories.

Wilson's career evolved from an early fascination with mechanical, scientific and electrical products.

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

For Syracuse, 2010: Selections of Truisms and Survival
Urban Video Project

Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Internationally renowned artist Jenny Holzer created "For Syracuse" as a site-specific installation that streams across the facade of Syracuse Stage on an LED curtain. The installation features 272 aphorisms from her celebrated series "Truisms, and Survival" that challenge viewer's assumptions about the world we live in through the use of language as art. Whether questioning consumerist impulses, or lamenting the struggles of daily living Jenny Holzer always provokes a response. Her work crosses the boundary between poetry and visual art, and suggests both the limitations and power of technology and the information age.

For more than 30 years, this influential American conceptual artist has been creating subversive works that blend in among advertisements in public spaces questioning and confronting our passive consumption of information. Since the early 1970s, Holzer has been collecting and writing phrases and aphorisms found in literature, philosophy and contemporary culture. She calls these summaries her Truisms, and has printed them on bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches, footstools, stickers, t-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, video, sound, light projection, and the Internet. In 1982, Holzer installed Truisms on one of Time Square's gigantic LED billboards. In the 1980s, for her Survival Series, Holzer adopted more personal and urgent messages about the realities of everyday living. Power, vulnerability, violence, tenderness, moral struggles and motherhood are courageously chronicled in this series which continuously prods the viewer to question the role of individuals in society.

Gallery Exhibit: The Narrative Tradition in the 21st Century: The Art of Randy Elliott and Richard Williams
Onondaga Community College

Price: Free
Ann Felton Multicultural Center and Gallery
Onondaga Community College, Syracuse

About Richard Williams:
As a self-taught illustrator I was able to sidestep the many academic pitfalls that plague contemporary artists, such as the belief that drawing skills are not important. My work is steeped in the tradition of craftsmanship and the importance of the narrative. Art in my opinion serves a social function, which can encompass selling a product to the public or making critical commentary on society and culture, and anything in between. To accomplish this, the artist needs to communicate in a simple, clear and powerful way. To do this one needs to have a firm grasp of the basic skills of draftsmanship, color, painting technique and storytelling.

About Randy Elliott:
Randy Elliott began his professional art career in 1988, inking the Dungeons & Dragons, Dragonlance comic book for DC Comics. That job began a career that continues until the present. Over the course of the last twenty-odd years, Randy has inked and/or penciled comic books for DC, Archie, Marvel, Dark Horse, Valiant and a number of smaller publishers. He has also painted images for clients like, Wizards of the Coast, Alderac Entertainment Group, Battlefront Miniatures, Hasbro and others.

The Power and The Piety: The World of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center

Price: Free
Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibit, curated by History Professor Chris Kyle with Senior Director of Special Collections Sean Quimby, showcases the library's collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed works, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The title "The Power and The Piety," refers to extraordinary influence that secular monarchies and the Church had on the lives of everyday men and women. Richly illustrated late medieval psalters and books of hours exemplify the painstaking attention that the pious paid to their spiritual well-being. But the printing revolution made it possible for new ideas to spread more rapidly. Printed works like Thomas Hobbes' "Leviathan" (1651) signified the increasing power wielded by kings, queens and other secular authorities. As the Protestant Reformation and Scientific Revolution took hold of Europe, the power of the Catholic Church further waned. "The Power and the Piety" includes such important works as the first King James Bible (1611) and a second printing of Copernicus' "De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium" (1566), which argued in favor of a heliocentric, or sun-centered, universe.

The exhibition is arranged thematically, highlighting the overarching themes of power and piety, as well as English literature, music, architecture, science and fine bindings.

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland
Everson Museum of Art

Price: $10 adults, $8 students/seniors, $30 family pack (2 adults, 4 children))
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

The adornment of these objects relates to architectural details and the idea of facade. Facade is what we are presented with upon first appearance, whether speaking of people or architecture, and it isn't until we look inside that we discover the true structure."

316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

For Syracuse, 2010: Selections of Truisms and Survival
Urban Video Project

Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Internationally renowned artist Jenny Holzer created "For Syracuse" as a site-specific installation that streams across the facade of Syracuse Stage on an LED curtain. The installation features 272 aphorisms from her celebrated series "Truisms, and Survival" that challenge viewer's assumptions about the world we live in through the use of language as art. Whether questioning consumerist impulses, or lamenting the struggles of daily living Jenny Holzer always provokes a response. Her work crosses the boundary between poetry and visual art, and suggests both the limitations and power of technology and the information age.

For more than 30 years, this influential American conceptual artist has been creating subversive works that blend in among advertisements in public spaces questioning and confronting our passive consumption of information. Since the early 1970s, Holzer has been collecting and writing phrases and aphorisms found in literature, philosophy and contemporary culture. She calls these summaries her Truisms, and has printed them on bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches, footstools, stickers, t-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, video, sound, light projection, and the Internet. In 1982, Holzer installed Truisms on one of Time Square's gigantic LED billboards. In the 1980s, for her Survival Series, Holzer adopted more personal and urgent messages about the realities of everyday living. Power, vulnerability, violence, tenderness, moral struggles and motherhood are courageously chronicled in this series which continuously prods the viewer to question the role of individuals in society.

"From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland" is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between the time of his first trip to Ireland in 1913 and his last trip there in 1928. Long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight, Henri's paintings have received less attention on their own. Most projects explored his career as it related to his role as a member of The Eight or in a broadly retrospective manner. Few projects focused on his landscapes, drawings, or foreign portraits.

Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year. These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly--portraiture--and also chart his experiments with paint handling and color theories over time. He wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the upcoming exhibition.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky
Light Work Gallery

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

Alexander Gronsky is a self-described landscape photographer with an uncanny ability to capture scenes in nature as elegant allegories that include rolling hills, spectacular lighting, and far reaching horizons. His skilled use of perspective and composition, reminiscent of centuries-old traditions in European landscape painting, draw the viewer's eye deep into the landscape and generate a sense of awe for each place. The photographs in this exhibit were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

Wounding the Black Male
Light Work Gallery

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

This exhibition was curated by English Professor Cassandra Jackson and Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham, both from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The exhibition was on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery in 2011. The central ideas of the exhibit are rooted in Jackson's most recent book, Violence, Visual Culture, and the Black Male Body (Routledge, 2010). Her book deals with the ways in which the black male body has been visually exploited, and the ways in which contemporary artists have called into question the paradigmatic construction of the black body in American society. The exhibit displays 31 photographs by 19 contemporary artists of African descent, 17 from the United States, two from Britain. Their work comments on the various representations of black bodies in Western visual culture. These artists confront stereotypes about black male appearance, sexuality, violence, and family, and highlight the ways that visual culture has contributed to the marginalization and exclusion of the black community.

Educational Toys by Roy Wilson
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Genet Design Gallery
The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Designer Roy Wilson, a 1970 alumnus of Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, will exhibit his award-winning educational toy designs. The exhibit features Wilson's work from the Learning Curve Toy Co., including the 1992 Thomas Wooden Railway project and the 1994 Lamaze Infant Development System, which he researched, designed, engineered and manufactured. The exhibition will also include his most recent invention in toys, TRAK2BRIK Adapters. Introduced in February at the American International Toy Fair, TRAK2BRIK is a system of adapters that links wooden railway track to pegged construction bricks and has dozens of slide-on toy accessories.

Wilson's career evolved from an early fascination with mechanical, scientific and electrical products. While at SU studying industrial design, he wrote his graduating thesis on preschool educational developmental toys. He started his own design business, Creative International, in 1967 and decided to remain independent and/or work on long-term contracts. To date, he has won 47 national and international awards for design excellence.

9th Annual Kids' Benefit Art Show
Szozda Gallery

Szozda Gallery
Delavan Center, 501 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

The school year's hard work in art programs at Meachem and Seymour Dual-Language Academy Elementary schools netted some students the opportunity to display their art in a professional gallery.

Between the two schools, some 950 students are enrolled in the art programs, in no small measure due to the dedication and expertise of their teachers, Stacy Griffin at Meachem and Kelly Moser-Vogler at Seymour, who have served in the Syracuse School District for a combined 26 years. Another reason for the success of the schools' art programs is the unique way each teacher chooses to nurture the students' interest by targeting their total development in academic curriculum, including study of various cultures, math concepts, and literacy. Further, these teachers go beyond the level of their students, using different means to encourage parents' involvement. And, every year, the teachers also move beyond their own arts departments to involve the rest of each school's student body by busing in all classmates for a special gallery kids' reception.

Sales from the show are split between the schools and students.

The Photographer as Child: Memories of Guatemala
La Casita Cultural Center

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

Born in Guatemala, award-winning photographer Efren Lopez is a student in the Military Photojournalism Program at Syracuse University. He is also an aerial photographer for the U.S. Air Force and the first reservist to be selected to attend Newhouse's Military Photojournalism Program. He now lives in Arizona.

The exhibit features images Lopez captured on a return trip to Guatemala in 2009. "My life began in a bamboo hut at the side of a road in a tiny town named Petaca, Guatemala, in 1966," Lopez writes. "It's a town so small that it is next to impossible to find on most maps of Guatemala, much less Central America."

Lopez has documented real-world situations and the military around the globe and has captured stunning images in Arizona and Guatemala. His work has been featured in various publications, including the book Arizona 24/7, and has been awarded many distinctions, including first place in the Professional Photography category at the 2008 Arizona State Fair, an honorable mention in the pictorial category in the 2009 Military Photographer of the Year competition, and first place in the 2011 Multimedia Team 19th Annual Department of Defense Worldwide Military Photography Workshop.

Noriko Ambe: Inner Water
The Warehouse Gallery

Price: Free
The Warehouse Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In her first US museum solo show, New York City-based Japanese artist Noriko Ambe will create a new site-specific installation in the main gallery reflecting the tragic 2011 events in Japan through the use of video projections and her signature large-scale paper cutouts that evoke waves.

Nature plays an important role in Ambe's work, and it points to larger issues, such as the natural forces determining our global landscape, and the relationship between nature and humans throughout time. A recipient of prestigious awards such as the AICA Award and Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Ambe's work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design and the Japan Society in New York and the Kyoto University of Art and Design in Kyoto, Japan. Her work is also in the collection of the Whitney Museum of Art.

RESOURCED/response: The Art of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative and SU Fiber Arts
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition is a look into the environmental devastation that plagues the earth and its beings. It is also a look into the environmental justice movement that works to correct and heal the destruction. RESOURCED is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative in 2010, focusing on resource extraction and climate issues, which will be used to help ask important questions about our environment. At the beginning of the spring semester 2012, students from the introduction to fibers course at Syracuse University viewed images from RESOURCED.

Students selected the poster that held most significance to them, either for the visual content of the work or the environmental issue it addressed. Then each student created a hand-dyed textile in response to the original work, using a variety of dye techniques, relief printing techniques and methods of stitching. These were both applied traditionally and adapted to suit the students' intentions and individual visual language.

For Syracuse, 2010: Selections of Truisms and Survival
Urban Video Project

Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Internationally renowned artist Jenny Holzer created "For Syracuse" as a site-specific installation that streams across the facade of Syracuse Stage on an LED curtain. The installation features 272 aphorisms from her celebrated series "Truisms, and Survival" that challenge viewer's assumptions about the world we live in through the use of language as art. Whether questioning consumerist impulses, or lamenting the struggles of daily living Jenny Holzer always provokes a response. Her work crosses the boundary between poetry and visual art, and suggests both the limitations and power of technology and the information age.

For more than 30 years, this influential American conceptual artist has been creating subversive works that blend in among advertisements in public spaces questioning and confronting our passive consumption of information. Since the early 1970s, Holzer has been collecting and writing phrases and aphorisms found in literature, philosophy and contemporary culture. She calls these summaries her Truisms, and has printed them on bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches, footstools, stickers, t-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, video, sound, light projection, and the Internet. In 1982, Holzer installed Truisms on one of Time Square's gigantic LED billboards. In the 1980s, for her Survival Series, Holzer adopted more personal and urgent messages about the realities of everyday living. Power, vulnerability, violence, tenderness, moral struggles and motherhood are courageously chronicled in this series which continuously prods the viewer to question the role of individuals in society.
