Exploring the Digital Landscape: Works by Carl Hoffner

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

Carl Hoffner's artwork surrounds the viewer in a cacophony of color. His contemporary landscapes of the Central New York region vibrate with intense color. Says Hoffner, "In my work I explore the inherent abstractions and extraordinary color within Upstate New York’s wealth of natural beauty."

While Hoffner also works in traditional lithograph, the work being exhibited here is part of his digital portfolio. Hoffner uses the computer paired with a Wacom tablet, and Corel painter software to draw and paint directly on the computer. Hoffner explains, "I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color." The completed digital paintings are produced in limited editions using giclee inkjet printing technology.

Hoffner received his MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He taught in the art department of OCC in the 1980s. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad including galleries in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia. Hoffner currently resides in Fayetteville, NY.

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.

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.

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz
Everson Museum of Art

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" 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.

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.

Unsung Heroes Series: Pressure Cooker
Redhouse

Price: $8 regular, $5 members
Redhouse
219 S. West St., Syracuse

As part of its "Unsung Heroes" Documentary Film Series, Red House Arts Center will screen Pressure Cooker, an inspirational film released in 2009, directed by Jennifer Grausman and Mark Becker, to celebrate innovative teachers and administrators in CNY as part of Teacher Appreciation Week.

Pressure Cooker follows an unorthodox Culinary Arts teacher, Mrs. Stephenson, who is partially known as a tyrant throughout her Philadelphia public high school for her hoarse rebukes of her students' creations. She may be disarmingly blunt, but three seniors at Frankford High School find her an unlikely champion in the kitchen. A legend in the school system, Mrs. Stephenson's hilariously blunt boot-camp method of teaching Culinary Arts is validated by years of scholarship success. Against the backdrop of the row homes of working-class Philadelphia, she has helped countless students reach the top culinary schools in the country. And under her fierce direction, the usual distractions of high school are swept aside as Erica, Dudley and Fatoumata prepare to achieve beyond what anyone else expects from them.

Café sales for the evening and the following day will benefit Outliers, Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to providing social, artistic, and educational support services and programs in order to help facilitate the process of reintegrating underrepresented minorities into academia and higher education. This organization's mission is to inspire kids to push beyond life's obstacles, a theme also present in the film.

Running Time: 1 hr. 39 min.

Teachers and administrators: bring your school ID and be eligible for great raffle prizes!

Exploring the Digital Landscape: Works by Carl Hoffner

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

Carl Hoffner's artwork surrounds the viewer in a cacophony of color. His contemporary landscapes of the Central New York region vibrate with intense color. Says Hoffner, "In my work I explore the inherent abstractions and extraordinary color within Upstate New York’s wealth of natural beauty."

While Hoffner also works in traditional lithograph, the work being exhibited here is part of his digital portfolio. Hoffner uses the computer paired with a Wacom tablet, and Corel painter software to draw and paint directly on the computer. Hoffner explains, "I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color." The completed digital paintings are produced in limited editions using giclee inkjet printing technology.

Hoffner received his MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He taught in the art department of OCC in the 1980s. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad including galleries in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia. Hoffner currently resides in Fayetteville, NY.

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.

Pastoral: Landscape Photos by Alexander Gronsky

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.

"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.

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."

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.

World Premiere: Crooked Arrows
Film in Syracuse (Syracuse International Film Festival)

Price: $15 - $150
Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

A mixed-blood Native American, Joe Logan, eager to modernize his reservation, must first prove himself to his father, the traditionalist Tribal Chairman, by rediscovering his spirit. He is tasked with coaching the reservation's high school lacrosse team which competes against the better equipped and better trained players of the elite Prep School League.

Joe inspires the Native American boys and teaches them the true meaning of tribal pride. Ignited by their heritage and believing in their new-found potential, coach and team climb an uphill battle to the state championship finals against their privileged prep school rivals ... will they win?

Crooked Arrows is modeled upon the consistently successful underdog sports movie popularized by Mighty Ducks, Bad News Bears, Hoosiers, and Bend It Like Beckham, and set in the fresh, contemporary worlds of Native American reservations, prep schools, and lacrosse.

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.

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.

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

La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

There will be a closing reception and silent auction for this evening 5:30-8:30 pm. The silent auction will feature López artwork that is included in the exhibition. Proceeds will benefit La Casita's Young Photographers' Fund.

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.

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.

In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

RDP Student Outreach: The Wrestling Season
Rarely Done Productions
Scott Austin, director

Price: $20 adult, $10 student
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

Presented with The Q Center at ACR, The Wrestling Season tackles subject matter seldom addressed but vital to youth and their families: the search for identity and the peer pressure that accompanies it. Using only the setting of a wrestling mat, eight young people struggle with the destructive power of rumors and how others see them.

This is Matt's year to excel on his high-school wrestling team, but innuendo about his friendship with Luke causes Matt to question himself and his priorities. Kori wants to be accepted for who she is, not the way she looks. Melanie copes with a reputation she cannot grow beyond. Jolt and Heather ultimately regret having too much too soon. And Nicole has so little self-esteem that she agrees with everyone.

The action is overseen by The Referee, who comments on the action from inside and outside the drama with hand signals and commands. Using images, movement and sound, cast members function as a chorus and as individual characters whose stories are interwoven to create a theatrical event that challenges and reveals their search for identity.

Exploring the Digital Landscape: Works by Carl Hoffner

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

Carl Hoffner's artwork surrounds the viewer in a cacophony of color. His contemporary landscapes of the Central New York region vibrate with intense color. Says Hoffner, "In my work I explore the inherent abstractions and extraordinary color within Upstate New York’s wealth of natural beauty."

While Hoffner also works in traditional lithograph, the work being exhibited here is part of his digital portfolio. Hoffner uses the computer paired with a Wacom tablet, and Corel painter software to draw and paint directly on the computer. Hoffner explains, "I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color." The completed digital paintings are produced in limited editions using giclee inkjet printing technology.

Hoffner received his MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He taught in the art department of OCC in the 1980s. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad including galleries in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia. Hoffner currently resides in Fayetteville, NY.

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.

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.

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.

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.

RDP Student Outreach: The Wrestling Season
Rarely Done Productions
Scott Austin, director

Price: $20 adult, $10 student
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

Presented with The Q Center at ACR, The Wrestling Season tackles subject matter seldom addressed but vital to youth and their families: the search for identity and the peer pressure that accompanies it. Using only the setting of a wrestling mat, eight young people struggle with the destructive power of rumors and how others see them.

This is Matt's year to excel on his high-school wrestling team, but innuendo about his friendship with Luke causes Matt to question himself and his priorities. Kori wants to be accepted for who she is, not the way she looks. Melanie copes with a reputation she cannot grow beyond. Jolt and Heather ultimately regret having too much too soon. And Nicole has so little self-esteem that she agrees with everyone.

The action is overseen by The Referee, who comments on the action from inside and outside the drama with hand signals and commands. Using images, movement and sound, cast members function as a chorus and as individual characters whose stories are interwoven to create a theatrical event that challenges and reveals their search for identity.

Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an exciting new voice in American Theatre and his award-winning The Brothers Size proves why. In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

At the heart of this joyful play is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest comic heroine, Rosalind. As a woman disguised as a man, she exists not fully as either but in between, where she can relish the privilege of speaking with a man's authority informed by a woman's heart, a combination she needs in guiding the varied denizens of the Forest of Arden in the hey-nonny-no of love. As the great sage writes: "To be in love, and yet to see and feel the absurdity of it, one needs to go school with Rosalind." And school is rarely, if ever, this much fun. Sweet lovers love the spring!

Reliquaries: New Work by Drew Goerlitz
Everson Museum of Art

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.

Exploring the Digital Landscape: Works by Carl Hoffner

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

Carl Hoffner's artwork surrounds the viewer in a cacophony of color. His contemporary landscapes of the Central New York region vibrate with intense color. Says Hoffner, "In my work I explore the inherent abstractions and extraordinary color within Upstate New York’s wealth of natural beauty."

While Hoffner also works in traditional lithograph, the work being exhibited here is part of his digital portfolio. Hoffner uses the computer paired with a Wacom tablet, and Corel painter software to draw and paint directly on the computer. Hoffner explains, "I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color." The completed digital paintings are produced in limited editions using giclee inkjet printing technology.

Hoffner received his MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He taught in the art department of OCC in the 1980s. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad including galleries in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia. Hoffner currently resides in Fayetteville, NY.

Opening reception for "Trees: Totems of Life," paintings by Maria Janina Rizzo.

Painting is Maria Rizzo's personal journey to find beauty and balance among texture, color and form. It is also a political journey in which the artist uses her art to create an awareness of endangered trees, the beauty and frailty of nature and, consequently, the necessity of recycling. In Maria Rizzo's paintings, the tree becomes an iconic figure, a "totem of life," ready to emotionally connect with the viewer. To create this expressive imagery, the artist uses her own memories of nature in Italy as her main source of inspiration.

The Westcott Jug Suckers, the area's legendary misfit choir, are getting together for a reunion concert at the Westcott Center. Known for their raucous shows, the versatile Jug Suckers bounce among Delta blues, ragtime, old jug band music, jump blues, R&B, and jazz, interspersed with wisecracks, mischief, and participatory call and response singing with their audience.

The Westcott Jug Suckers originally formed in 1988 and were a regular fixture at Westcott area venues, providing an acoustic alternative to the Chicago blues style bands prevalent at the time. They achieved notoriety by being the first band to play the Dinosaur BBQ. Through the years, the band evolved and changed personnel, but the core has always been Colin Aberdeen on guitar, Curtis Waterman on harmonica and vocals, Rodney Zajac on baritone sax, and Bill Kerner, aka Washboard Willie, on washboard, of course. Since some of the members no longer live locally, the Jug Suckers rarely play together anymore. With a chance to turn their trademark energy loose again, they'll make this special show a rockin' party for sure.

Sweet lovers love the spring!

The Brothers Size
Syracuse Stage
Timothy Bond, director

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

Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an exciting new voice in American Theatre and his award-winning The Brothers Size proves why. In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

RDP Student Outreach: The Wrestling Season
Rarely Done Productions
Scott Austin, director

Price: $20 adult, $10 student
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

Presented with The Q Center at ACR, The Wrestling Season tackles subject matter seldom addressed but vital to youth and their families: the search for identity and the peer pressure that accompanies it. Using only the setting of a wrestling mat, eight young people struggle with the destructive power of rumors and how others see them.

This is Matt's year to excel on his high-school wrestling team, but innuendo about his friendship with Luke causes Matt to question himself and his priorities. Kori wants to be accepted for who she is, not the way she looks. Melanie copes with a reputation she cannot grow beyond. Jolt and Heather ultimately regret having too much too soon. And Nicole has so little self-esteem that she agrees with everyone.

The action is overseen by The Referee, who comments on the action from inside and outside the drama with hand signals and commands. Using images, movement and sound, cast members function as a chorus and as individual characters whose stories are interwoven to create a theatrical event that challenges and reveals their search for identity.

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.

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.

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
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."

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.

Exploring the Digital Landscape: Works by Carl Hoffner

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

Carl Hoffner's artwork surrounds the viewer in a cacophony of color. His contemporary landscapes of the Central New York region vibrate with intense color. Says Hoffner, "In my work I explore the inherent abstractions and extraordinary color within Upstate New York’s wealth of natural beauty."

While Hoffner also works in traditional lithograph, the work being exhibited here is part of his digital portfolio. Hoffner uses the computer paired with a Wacom tablet, and Corel painter software to draw and paint directly on the computer. Hoffner explains, "I have found this to be a liberating artistic experience bringing back the play in my art as well as offering a chance to re-explore my passion for painting and color." The completed digital paintings are produced in limited editions using giclee inkjet printing technology.

Hoffner received his MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He taught in the art department of OCC in the 1980s. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad including galleries in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia. Hoffner currently resides in Fayetteville, NY.

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.
