According to the Laws of Chance
Light Work Gallery

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

"According to the Laws of Chance" is a subtitle included in many works by the Dadaist painter Jean Arp that describes his systematic yet chance-driven method of creating his simple and playful paintings. Arp would let torn pieces of paper fall to the floor to determine his painting or collage compositions. Although the outcomes are different, Arp's ethos can be found in the work of the photographers selected for this group exhibition.

The artists in this exhibition — Cheryl Miller, Claire A. Warden, Jaclyn Wright, Josh Thorson, Kyle Tata, Louis Chavez, and Will Stith, and Light Work's collection artists, Cecil McDonald, Jr., James Welling, Peter Finnemore, and Rita Hammond — are using and defining chance as a core element of their largely divergent practices. The image-makers in this exhibition embrace the unpredictable and find ways to amplify chance for conceptual and creative purposes. The results are surprising expressions of each artist's voice. Together they showcase the wide-ranging use of chance and highlight it as a vital tool in contemporary photographic practice.

Clayscapes
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Clayscapes is a tribute to clay's ubiquitous presence in our lives, and to the powerful metaphorical and spiritual role that it can play. The Everson's famous collection of ceramics is filled with works that explore the landscape—from artist Robert Arneson's monumental celebration of California's mountainous landscape to Uruguayan-born Lidya Buzio's earthy vessels adorned with the skyline of her adopted home in New York City. The collection contains many commercially produced souvenir plates and pitchers meant to commemorate and memorialize specific places. These wares are a distinctive part of the Museum's collection, and they provide inspiration for contemporary artists such as Paul Scott, who makes commemorative plates that reflect the ways that humans have altered the landscape and exploited its resources.

As artists continue to shape clay, Clayscapes recognizes the ways in which clay shapes us. The Everson's ceramic collection is filled with work that documents the joys and sorrows of humankind's relationship with the Earth. This exhibition pays tribute to the powerful connection between artists and the world around them.

Jewels from the Fire: 20th Century Enamels
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson Museum houses a significant collection of enamels by artists including June Schwarcz, Edward H. Winter, and Ellamarie and Jackson Woolley. Several leading ceramists — for example, Carleton Ball and Jade Snow Wong — also worked in enamel. Exhibition spaces that show ceramics have often championed enamels too, including the Everson's own Ceramic National exhibitions. After waning in popularity in the mid-20th century, enamels are enjoying a comeback thanks to new technologies and the proliferation of community studios and makerspaces that provide shared equipment and knowledge.

O’tá:ra
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Akwesasne Mohawk artist Natasha Smoke Santiago has spent the last two decades mastering traditional Haudenosaunee pottery techniques. Her unique work incorporates storytelling, activism, and the exploration of native foodways, including experiments with seedkeeping and collaborations with Indigenous chefs. The exhibition's title, O'tá:ra (pronounced oh-da-law) takes its name from a Mohawk phrase that means both "our clay" and "our clan," a testament to clay's foundational role in Haudenosaunee culture.

Ben Altman: I Own This Stolen Land
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

In 2021, photographer Ben Altman and his wife bought 38 acres of land next to their home in rural Danby, NY, to prevent logging and development. He recognized that the title to this beautiful land originated in genocide. More than 200 years ago the Cayuga, one of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, were violently and fraudulently dispersed from the homelands they had occupied and nurtured for over 10,000 years. Despite two centuries of genocidal repression and cultural suppression, they remain resilient, but live almost entirely in diaspora, in Oklahoma, Ontario, and scattered across North America.

"I Own This Stolen Land" is a multidisciplinary project that seeks to acknowledge and take responsibility for the theft of the land; understand the natural systems, economic pressures, ecological stresses, and options for stewardship of the site; invite Cayuga people to visit and to undertake traditional and arts activities, building trust between them and communities in Tompkins County; and develop scalable models for cooperative access to ancestral land.

Inspired by the painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat, Sunday in the Park with George, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's stunning masterpiece, merges past and present into beautiful, poignant truths about life, love and the creation of art.

The days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat's artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat's descendant – named George and also an artist – finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.

According to the Laws of Chance
Light Work Gallery

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

"According to the Laws of Chance" is a subtitle included in many works by the Dadaist painter Jean Arp that describes his systematic yet chance-driven method of creating his simple and playful paintings. Arp would let torn pieces of paper fall to the floor to determine his painting or collage compositions. Although the outcomes are different, Arp's ethos can be found in the work of the photographers selected for this group exhibition.

The artists in this exhibition — Cheryl Miller, Claire A. Warden, Jaclyn Wright, Josh Thorson, Kyle Tata, Louis Chavez, and Will Stith, and Light Work's collection artists, Cecil McDonald, Jr., James Welling, Peter Finnemore, and Rita Hammond — are using and defining chance as a core element of their largely divergent practices. The image-makers in this exhibition embrace the unpredictable and find ways to amplify chance for conceptual and creative purposes. The results are surprising expressions of each artist's voice. Together they showcase the wide-ranging use of chance and highlight it as a vital tool in contemporary photographic practice.

Akwesasne Mohawk artist Natasha Smoke Santiago has spent the last two decades mastering traditional Haudenosaunee pottery techniques. Her unique work incorporates storytelling, activism, and the exploration of native foodways, including experiments with seedkeeping and collaborations with Indigenous chefs. The exhibition's title, O'tá:ra (pronounced oh-da-law) takes its name from a Mohawk phrase that means both "our clay" and "our clan," a testament to clay's foundational role in Haudenosaunee culture.

Exhibition spaces that show ceramics have often championed enamels too, including the Everson's own Ceramic National exhibitions. After waning in popularity in the mid-20th century, enamels are enjoying a comeback thanks to new technologies and the proliferation of community studios and makerspaces that provide shared equipment and knowledge.

Clayscapes is a tribute to clay's ubiquitous presence in our lives, and to the powerful metaphorical and spiritual role that it can play. The Everson's famous collection of ceramics is filled with works that explore the landscape—from artist Robert Arneson's monumental celebration of California's mountainous landscape to Uruguayan-born Lidya Buzio's earthy vessels adorned with the skyline of her adopted home in New York City. The collection contains many commercially produced souvenir plates and pitchers meant to commemorate and memorialize specific places. These wares are a distinctive part of the Museum's collection, and they provide inspiration for contemporary artists such as Paul Scott, who makes commemorative plates that reflect the ways that humans have altered the landscape and exploited its resources.

As artists continue to shape clay, Clayscapes recognizes the ways in which clay shapes us. The Everson's ceramic collection is filled with work that documents the joys and sorrows of humankind's relationship with the Earth. This exhibition pays tribute to the powerful connection between artists and the world around them.

Ben Altman: I Own This Stolen Land
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

In 2021, photographer Ben Altman and his wife bought 38 acres of land next to their home in rural Danby, NY, to prevent logging and development. He recognized that the title to this beautiful land originated in genocide. More than 200 years ago the Cayuga, one of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, were violently and fraudulently dispersed from the homelands they had occupied and nurtured for over 10,000 years. Despite two centuries of genocidal repression and cultural suppression, they remain resilient, but live almost entirely in diaspora, in Oklahoma, Ontario, and scattered across North America.

"I Own This Stolen Land" is a multidisciplinary project that seeks to acknowledge and take responsibility for the theft of the land; understand the natural systems, economic pressures, ecological stresses, and options for stewardship of the site; invite Cayuga people to visit and to undertake traditional and arts activities, building trust between them and communities in Tompkins County; and develop scalable models for cooperative access to ancestral land.

Little Walter Tribute with Mark Hummel & Anson Funderburgh
The 443 Social Club

The 443 Social Club

Harmonica giant Little Walter is considered the standard torch bearer by which all others are judged. In Walter's short life, 1930-1968 he had more top ten hits than any other Chess Records blues artists. Walter's amplified harmonica sound ignited the Chicago scene for harp in blues in the early fifties with his hit record Juke, a must-learn song for all players then and now.

Grammy-nominated Blues Award-winning harp blower, singer, bandleader, author, producer Mark Hummel, and guitarist Anson Funderburgh have been touring and recording with Jerry McCain, Otis Rush, Elvin Bishop, Sam Myers, Anson and the Rockets, Snooks Eaglin, Jimmy Rogers, Jimmy Vaughn, Snooky Pryor, Kim Wilson, Delbert McClinton, Brownie McGhee, Charlie Musselwhite, Charles Brown, Eddie Taylor, Luther Tucker and many more.

"I Own This Stolen Land" is a multidisciplinary project that seeks to acknowledge and take responsibility for the theft of the land; understand the natural systems, economic pressures, ecological stresses, and options for stewardship of the site; invite Cayuga people to visit and to undertake traditional and arts activities, building trust between them and communities in Tompkins County; and develop scalable models for cooperative access to ancestral land.

Sunday in the Park with George
Central New York Playhouse
Erica Moser, director

Atonement Lutheran Church
116 W. Glen Ave., Syracuse

Inspired by the painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat, Sunday in the Park with George, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's stunning masterpiece, merges past and present into beautiful, poignant truths about life, love and the creation of art.

The days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat's artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat's descendant – named George and also an artist – finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.

Catch Me If You Can, The Musical
Town of Manlius Recreation Department

Eagle Hill Middle School
4645 Enders Rd., Manlius

Based on the hit film and the incredible true story, Catch Me If You Can is the high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams. Nominated for four Tony awards, including Best Musical, this delightfully entertaining show was created by a Tony Award-winning "dream team," with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray).

Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager Frank Abagnale, Jr., runs away from home to begin an unforgettable adventure. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination, and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer — living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. When Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, though, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.
