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

"Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of the United States" explores the root causes of mass incarceration in the U.S. through art inspired by the interviews of 30 formerly-incarcerated women of Louisiana — the state known as the "Prison Capital of the World." Co-curated in partnership with formerly incarcerated women, "Per(Sister)" seeks to build awareness of the crucial issues that impact women before, during, and after incarceration. The exhibition shares stories of loss, hope, despair, survival, triumph, and persistence in a variety of forms, demonstrating simultaneously the universal struggles faced by communities impacted by incarceration and the personal resilience of each woman featured.

"Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of the United States" is a traveling exhibition produced by the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University in New Orleans.

Forever is Composed of Nows
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Charley Friedman: Soundtracks for the Present Future
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Soundtracks for the Present Future is an immersive auditory installation that combines nearly 60 second-hand guitars, mandolins, and basses to create a singular instrument. Suspended from the ceiling in a constellation, the instruments form a labyrinth of sounds and vibrations that perpetually shifts as viewers navigate the work. Through computer software, the instruments "play" various compositions ranging from classical European music to new or recent compositions modified for this installation.

Dawn Williams Boyd: Woe
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The sheer size of Dawn Williams Boyd's "cloth paintings" adds to their larger-than-life, often brutal subject matter. Her exhibition, Woe, is a collection of works that reflect a lifelong critique of social injustices and racial violence, epic battles with misogyny, and physical and psychological abuses of power. There is no such thing as neutral history. Using scraps of fabric, needles, and thread as her tools, Boyd painstakingly "paints" the entire surface of her quilts, layer upon layer, cutting, sewing, endlessly repurposing, building the surface into a formidable, authoritative source that pulls no punches.

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.

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Laura Reeder: Now More Than Ever
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Now More Than Ever, the inaugural exhibition for the CNY Artist Initiative, is an evolving installation of over 2000 digital images captured over the past ten years as artist Laura Reeder moves through her everyday life. The photos are taken everywhere — at work, in cities, in nature, while housekeeping, at meals, and as pauses or interruptions in a moment. During a pandemic, digital images connect us to each other; by presenting images in a physical space, Now More Than Ever offers respite and resistance to our sense-dulling digital lives.

No Emoji for Ennui: Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis
Urban Video Project

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

"No Emoji for Ennui" is a group show featuring the work of Lana Z Caplan, Ross Meckfessel, Alison Nguyen, and Matt Whitman that explores the difficult-to-define emotional tenor of our time — one that often leaves us overstimulated and underwhelmed at the same time it demands endless positivity. The seductive surface of the touchscreen shatters and the polygon meshes underlying our shared social reality peek out from under the digital skin.

What does it feel like to be a person in a world in which our sense of self has been thoroughly disoriented by technological entanglement and co-opted by neoliberal capital?

By turns unsettling, contemplative, humorous, and filled with existential dread, the resulting show is a collective selfie of who and what we are now.

Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis:
Lana Z Caplan works across various media, including single-channel films and videos in essay form, interactive installations, video art, and photography. Her work is inspired by notions of utopia and the relationship of the present to history and memory. Caplan has exhibited and screened at Anthology Film Archives (New York), Antimatter Film Festival (Victoria, CA), Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), Chicago Underground Film Festival, CROSSROADS Film Festival, IC Docs (Iowa City), Inside Out Art Museum (Beijing), Microscope Gallery (New York), Moving Image Festival (Scotland), Museo Tamayo, Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, and San Francisco Cinematheque's Alchemy Film. Caplan's work is represented by Gallery NAGA (Boston) and her films are distributed by Collectif Jeune Cinéma (Paris) and Filmmaker's Cooperative (New York). (2019, 7:15 minutes)

The Sound of Murder
Acme Mystery Company

Spaghetti Warehouse
689 N. Clinton St., Syracuse

High on a hill died a lonely goatherd and some people around the Abbey are beginning to get the idea that sweet little Maria just might be a serial killer. Is she now at 16, going on 17? What exactly are her "favorite things"? Mother Abbess and her new assistant, Sister Adolph, are calling in all nuns and townsfolk to decide what to do. Even the pompous Captain Von Trampp and his bratty children will be there. Don't be late. You don't want Sister Adolph shaking her carrot at you.

Yoga Play
Syracuse Stage
Melissa Crespo, director

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

Joan has a big problem. Recently named CEO of athletic-wear giant Jojomon — think high end brand that's part '60s one-hit wonder and part citrus fruit — she even more recently learned that a BBC investigative team is about to expose her Bangladeshi manufacturer of lavender scented yoga pants as an exploiter of child labor. Suddenly, Jojomon's family of customers is all atwitter with accusations of inauthenticity. Only one solution will do — find a reclusive and revered yogi to serve as a spokesman and restore the company's all-important claim to authenticity. They find him all right. The rest is 90 minutes of side-splitting laughter. A fun-filled new comedy by Dipika Guha, a talent to watch and recipient of a Venturous Playwright Fellowship by The Lark.

Since her discovery in 2006 by Judy Collins, Amy Speace has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk music, and what a gorgeous voice it is!

From her beginnings in New York City as a classically-trained actress with the National Shakespeare Company, to the coffeehouses of Greenwich Village where she began playing her original songs, to her move to Nashville in 2009, what ties all her work together is a palpable empathy for the small struggles of the human condition. Amy has played all across the country, appeared on Mountain Stage multiple times, as well as many folk festivals around the world.

Her music has received critical acclaim from The New York Times, The Sunday London Times, and Mojo Magazine and National Public Radio which described her voice as "velvety and achy" and compared her to Lucinda Williams.

Joan has a big problem. Recently named CEO of athletic-wear giant Jojomon — think high end brand that's part '60s one-hit wonder and part citrus fruit — she even more recently learned that a BBC investigative team is about to expose her Bangladeshi manufacturer of lavender scented yoga pants as an exploiter of child labor. Suddenly, Jojomon's family of customers is all atwitter with accusations of inauthenticity. Only one solution will do — find a reclusive and revered yogi to serve as a spokesman and restore the company's all-important claim to authenticity. They find him all right. The rest is 90 minutes of side-splitting laughter. A fun-filled new comedy by Dipika Guha, a talent to watch and recipient of a Venturous Playwright Fellowship by The Lark.

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

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

The sheer size of Dawn Williams Boyd's "cloth paintings" adds to their larger-than-life, often brutal subject matter. Her exhibition, Woe, is a collection of works that reflect a lifelong critique of social injustices and racial violence, epic battles with misogyny, and physical and psychological abuses of power. There is no such thing as neutral history. Using scraps of fabric, needles, and thread as her tools, Boyd painstakingly "paints" the entire surface of her quilts, layer upon layer, cutting, sewing, endlessly repurposing, building the surface into a formidable, authoritative source that pulls no punches.

The Struggle to Connect: A Call and Response Conversation on Race and Gender by Women Artists
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition was developed from conversations between exhibit curator Vanessa Johnson and the late Marie Summerwood, local activist and ArtRage volunteer. While all women are oppressed as women, there has been an uneasy "her-story" between women of color and white women in the feminist movement. From the Women's Suffrage Movement to modern day voting patterns, there is a continuing divide based on an intersectionality of race, gender, and class.

"The Struggle to Connect" is an invitational group exhibition featuring a racially diverse group of women artists from CNY and beyond. The exhibit will confront the differences between white feminism and the feminist issues of women of color and explore differences in experiences and perspectives.

Participating artists include Kimberly Archer, Kathye Arrington, Ellen M. Blalock, Jacquelyn Maye Johnson, Vanessa Johnson, Robin Kasowitz, Lauren Miller, Susan W. Murphy, Sarah Pirtle, Mary Stanley, Caroline Tauxe, Laura Thorne, and Megan White.

No Emoji for Ennui: Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis
Urban Video Project

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

"No Emoji for Ennui" is a group show featuring the work of Lana Z Caplan, Ross Meckfessel, Alison Nguyen, and Matt Whitman that explores the difficult-to-define emotional tenor of our time — one that often leaves us overstimulated and underwhelmed at the same time it demands endless positivity. The seductive surface of the touchscreen shatters and the polygon meshes underlying our shared social reality peek out from under the digital skin.

What does it feel like to be a person in a world in which our sense of self has been thoroughly disoriented by technological entanglement and co-opted by neoliberal capital?

By turns unsettling, contemplative, humorous, and filled with existential dread, the resulting show is a collective selfie of who and what we are now.

Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis:
Lana Z Caplan works across various media, including single-channel films and videos in essay form, interactive installations, video art, and photography. Her work is inspired by notions of utopia and the relationship of the present to history and memory. Caplan has exhibited and screened at Anthology Film Archives (New York), Antimatter Film Festival (Victoria, CA), Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), Chicago Underground Film Festival, CROSSROADS Film Festival, IC Docs (Iowa City), Inside Out Art Museum (Beijing), Microscope Gallery (New York), Moving Image Festival (Scotland), Museo Tamayo, Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, and San Francisco Cinematheque's Alchemy Film. Caplan's work is represented by Gallery NAGA (Boston) and her films are distributed by Collectif Jeune Cinéma (Paris) and Filmmaker's Cooperative (New York). (2019, 7:15 minutes)

Forever is Composed of Nows
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment.

By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Dawn Williams Boyd: Woe
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The sheer size of Dawn Williams Boyd's "cloth paintings" adds to their larger-than-life, often brutal subject matter. Her exhibition, Woe, is a collection of works that reflect a lifelong critique of social injustices and racial violence, epic battles with misogyny, and physical and psychological abuses of power. There is no such thing as neutral history. Using scraps of fabric, needles, and thread as her tools, Boyd painstakingly "paints" the entire surface of her quilts, layer upon layer, cutting, sewing, endlessly repurposing, building the surface into a formidable, authoritative source that pulls no punches.

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.

The Struggle to Connect: A Call and Response Conversation on Race and Gender by Women Artists
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

This exhibition was developed from conversations between exhibit curator Vanessa Johnson and the late Marie Summerwood, local activist and ArtRage volunteer. While all women are oppressed as women, there has been an uneasy "her-story" between women of color and white women in the feminist movement. From the Women's Suffrage Movement to modern day voting patterns, there is a continuing divide based on an intersectionality of race, gender, and class.

"The Struggle to Connect" is an invitational group exhibition featuring a racially diverse group of women artists from CNY and beyond. The exhibit will confront the differences between white feminism and the feminist issues of women of color and explore differences in experiences and perspectives.

Participating artists include Kimberly Archer, Kathye Arrington, Ellen M. Blalock, Jacquelyn Maye Johnson, Vanessa Johnson, Robin Kasowitz, Lauren Miller, Susan W. Murphy, Sarah Pirtle, Mary Stanley, Caroline Tauxe, Laura Thorne, and Megan White.

No Emoji for Ennui: Ross Meckfessel, Estuary
Urban Video Project

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

"No Emoji for Ennui" is a group show featuring the work of Lana Z Caplan, Ross Meckfessel, Alison Nguyen, and Matt Whitman that explores the difficult-to-define emotional tenor of our time — one that often leaves us overstimulated and underwhelmed at the same time it demands endless positivity. The seductive surface of the touchscreen shatters and the polygon meshes underlying our shared social reality peek out from under the digital skin.

What does it feel like to be a person in a world in which our sense of self has been thoroughly disoriented by technological entanglement and co-opted by neoliberal capital?

By turns unsettling, contemplative, humorous, and filled with existential dread, the resulting show is a collective selfie of who and what we are now.

Ross Meckfessel, Estuary:
When you question the very nature of your physical reality it becomes much easier to see the cracks in the system. Estuary charts the emotional landscape of a time in flux. Inspired by the proliferation of computer-generated social media influencers and the growing desire to document and manipulate every square inch of our external and internal landscapes, Meckfessel considers the ramifications of a world where all aspects of life are curated and malleable. As time goes on, all lines blur into vector dots.

Ross Meckfessel is an artist and filmmaker who works primarily in Super 8 and 16mm film. His films often emphasize materiality and poetic structures while depicting the condition of modern life through an exploration of apocalyptic obsession, contemporary ennui, and the technological landscape. His work has screened internationally and throughout the United States including in Antimatter Film Festival (Victoria, CA), IC Docs (Iowa City), Internationales Kurzfilm Festival Hamburg, New York Film Festival, San Francisco Cinematheque's CROSSROADS Film Festival, The Artifact Small Format Film Festival (awarded best 16mm film), and Toronto International Film Festival. (2021, 12:00 minutes, 16mm stereo sound)
