James Henkel: Object Lessons
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work presents "Object Lessons" by North Carolina-based artist James Henkel. In his new exhibition, Henkel looks back over 30 years of image-making, following a conceptual and formal thread that ties his work together and seems to stubbornly insist on resurfacing.

Whatever is discarded, broken, and damaged draws Henkel to it. The objects he collects, assembles, or deconstructs are humble, common, and often no more than the scale of the human hand. Both the patina of wear and the handling that was often the source of the object's destruction are clearly present. He presents pieces of ceramic pots, bowls, bricks, toys, combs, and well-worn books in their broken fragments. Completely useless now, they remain a testimony to someone's life. This is what Henkel elevates by photographing these found objects so directly. Tension abounds in his work between the humble and the monumental, between play and decay, between high and low. The artist cross-references grander ideas from art history, painting, and sculpture, while also pointing back to the simpler but profound experience of photographing an ordinary life.

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

Cheryl Dunn: Licking the Bowl
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2002, while a resident at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center for the Arts, filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn documented "Free Basin," a sculptural project created by the multidisciplinary art collective Simparch. "Free Basin" was a large elevated, kidney-shaped skate bowl that was fully accessible to skaters in the community to use during gallery hours. Dunn's 15-minute film Licking the Bowl captures the energy of Free Basin using lyrical passages of skaters in motion punctuated with interviews and stark black and white still photographs.

AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded features 10 contemporary American artists — Polly Apfelbaum, Paolo Arao, Sanford Biggers, Samantha Bittman, Julia Bland, Rachel B. Hayes, Elana Herzog, Anne Lindberg, Sheila Pepe, and Sarah Zapata — who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today's digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Noli Me Tangere: Works by Kelvin Burzon
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Noli Me Tangere, "touch me not" or "don't tread on me," (Latin) is a series of photographs that examines an internal conflict of homosexuality and Catholicism. The photographs address, but don't aim to solve, the contentions between religion and homosexuality. Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.

Robin Holder: USA United States of Anxiety/We’re In It Together

Her research based, mixed technique works are saturated with cultural references that reveal the conflicts of our human experience.

Her work is exhibited widely and she is a recipient of grants and awards from the New York State Council on the Arts, the Brooklyn Arts Council, Manhattan Graphics Center, and The Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation; and appears in the collections of, among others, the Library of Congress, the Washington State Arts Commission, and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

Hito Steyerl: Strike (2010)
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Steyerl's work explores late capitalism's social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Strike is a short, humorous film squarely in the tradition of Fluxus performance and wordplay. The title of the work plays on the double meaning of the word "strike." Most obviously, a strike is a physically violent gesture, in this case against a flatscreen monitor, both a commodity and an object that, when working, "disappears" behind the spectacle it presents. On the other hand, a strike is a strategic refusal to work. The double meaning here short circuits our contemporary split identity as consumer-workers.

Screening begins at dusk.

James Henkel: Object Lessons
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work presents "Object Lessons" by North Carolina-based artist James Henkel. In his new exhibition, Henkel looks back over 30 years of image-making, following a conceptual and formal thread that ties his work together and seems to stubbornly insist on resurfacing.

Whatever is discarded, broken, and damaged draws Henkel to it. The objects he collects, assembles, or deconstructs are humble, common, and often no more than the scale of the human hand. Both the patina of wear and the handling that was often the source of the object's destruction are clearly present. He presents pieces of ceramic pots, bowls, bricks, toys, combs, and well-worn books in their broken fragments. Completely useless now, they remain a testimony to someone's life. This is what Henkel elevates by photographing these found objects so directly. Tension abounds in his work between the humble and the monumental, between play and decay, between high and low. The artist cross-references grander ideas from art history, painting, and sculpture, while also pointing back to the simpler but profound experience of photographing an ordinary life.

Hito Steyerl: Strike (2010)
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Steyerl's work explores late capitalism's social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Strike is a short, humorous film squarely in the tradition of Fluxus performance and wordplay. The title of the work plays on the double meaning of the word "strike." Most obviously, a strike is a physically violent gesture, in this case against a flatscreen monitor, both a commodity and an object that, when working, "disappears" behind the spectacle it presents. On the other hand, a strike is a strategic refusal to work. The double meaning here short circuits our contemporary split identity as consumer-workers.

Screening begins at dusk.

Peter Mack Quartet
CNY Jazz Arts Foundation

Price: $20 in advance, $25 at the door, $10 students
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

Auburn resident Peter Mack, the well-known bassist, leader, impresario, and supporter of the jazz art form, has assembled a new quartet including some of the hottest established names in jazz, rock, pop, and classical music.

They include Chuck Lamb, familiar to local audiences as keyboardist for the Brubeck Brothers, sons of the legendary Dave Brubeck. His local roots extend as far back as the heyday of the fusion group Dry Jack, regular visitors to the legendary Firebarn club next to City Hall in the 1970s and '80s. Lamb has also logged touring and performing credits as diverse as the Woody Herman Orchestra, Peter Frampton, and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Saxophonist Jeff Lederer brings a wide range of experience to the foursome, including current membership in the bands of Matt Wilson, Bobby Sanabria, and others, plus several groups of his own. As a composer, his "Los Sazones", a salsa reimagining of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons," was commissioned by the Ravinia Festival for the Chicago Symphony and has been performed the Los Angeles Philharmonic and others. A dedicated educator, he is Director of Jazz Studies at Long Island University.

Drummer Harvey Sorgen provides the coloristic underpinnings of the combo, bringing a dizzying breadth of artistic collaborations in jazz and rock to the band, including Hot Tuna, Ahmad Jamal, Paul Simon, Bruce Hornsby, Levon Helm, Carlos Santana, Bob Weir, Dave Douglas, and Anthony Braxton.

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

In 2002, while a resident at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center for the Arts, filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn documented "Free Basin," a sculptural project created by the multidisciplinary art collective Simparch. "Free Basin" was a large elevated, kidney-shaped skate bowl that was fully accessible to skaters in the community to use during gallery hours. Dunn's 15-minute film Licking the Bowl captures the energy of Free Basin using lyrical passages of skaters in motion punctuated with interviews and stark black and white still photographs.

AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded features 10 contemporary American artists — Polly Apfelbaum, Paolo Arao, Sanford Biggers, Samantha Bittman, Julia Bland, Rachel B. Hayes, Elana Herzog, Anne Lindberg, Sheila Pepe, and Sarah Zapata — who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today's digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Noli Me Tangere, "touch me not" or "don't tread on me," (Latin) is a series of photographs that examines an internal conflict of homosexuality and Catholicism. The photographs address, but don't aim to solve, the contentions between religion and homosexuality. Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.

Waitress
Famous Artists Broadway Series

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as "The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie" and "Betrayed By My Eggs Pie."

Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

James Henkel: Object Lessons
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work presents "Object Lessons" by North Carolina-based artist James Henkel. In his new exhibition, Henkel looks back over 30 years of image-making, following a conceptual and formal thread that ties his work together and seems to stubbornly insist on resurfacing.

Whatever is discarded, broken, and damaged draws Henkel to it. The objects he collects, assembles, or deconstructs are humble, common, and often no more than the scale of the human hand. Both the patina of wear and the handling that was often the source of the object's destruction are clearly present. He presents pieces of ceramic pots, bowls, bricks, toys, combs, and well-worn books in their broken fragments. Completely useless now, they remain a testimony to someone's life. This is what Henkel elevates by photographing these found objects so directly. Tension abounds in his work between the humble and the monumental, between play and decay, between high and low. The artist cross-references grander ideas from art history, painting, and sculpture, while also pointing back to the simpler but profound experience of photographing an ordinary life.

Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.

Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded features 10 contemporary American artists — Polly Apfelbaum, Paolo Arao, Sanford Biggers, Samantha Bittman, Julia Bland, Rachel B. Hayes, Elana Herzog, Anne Lindberg, Sheila Pepe, and Sarah Zapata — who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today's digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

In 2002, while a resident at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center for the Arts, filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn documented "Free Basin," a sculptural project created by the multidisciplinary art collective Simparch. "Free Basin" was a large elevated, kidney-shaped skate bowl that was fully accessible to skaters in the community to use during gallery hours. Dunn's 15-minute film Licking the Bowl captures the energy of Free Basin using lyrical passages of skaters in motion punctuated with interviews and stark black and white still photographs.

Hito Steyerl: Strike (2010)

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Steyerl's work explores late capitalism's social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Strike is a short, humorous film squarely in the tradition of Fluxus performance and wordplay. The title of the work plays on the double meaning of the word "strike." Most obviously, a strike is a physically violent gesture, in this case against a flatscreen monitor, both a commodity and an object that, when working, "disappears" behind the spectacle it presents. On the other hand, a strike is a strategic refusal to work. The double meaning here short circuits our contemporary split identity as consumer-workers.

Screening begins at dusk.

On the other hand, a strike is a strategic refusal to work. The double meaning here short circuits our contemporary split identity as consumer-workers.

Screening begins at dusk.

Sister Act
Redhouse
Temar Underwood, director

Redhouse at City Center Mainstage
400 S. Salina St., Syracuse

In this powerhouse musical, adapted from the 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg, disco-diva Deloris Van Catier has witnessed a murder. The cops put her into protective custody in the one place the bad guys won't find her — a convent! She helps the nuns find their voice as the director of the choir. In the process, she finds her own. With powerful gospel, dance, disco, and soul music from the creative mind of Broadway legend Alan Menkin, this moving show will have Redhouse audiences rejoicing at the triumphant return of live performances at the center.

Waitress
Famous Artists Broadway Series

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as "The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie" and "Betrayed By My Eggs Pie." When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

Brought to life by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, this hilarious hit Broadway musical features original music and lyrics by Grammy Award winner Sara Bareilles ("Brave," "Love Song"), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam), original choreography by Lorin Latarro (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Waiting for Godot), recreated by tour choreographer Abbey O'Brien and original direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Hair, Pippin), recreated by tour director Susanna Wolk.
