Sophia Chai: Character Space
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1987, Chai immigrated to New York City from South Korea as a teenager without knowing English. Looking back, she has described that experience as feeling untethered to any internal compass that she could use to navigate her place in a new country with a new language. She visually explains these experiences to us by reinterpreting the Korean language's characters in photographs that enable us to see the contradictions of visual and verbal communication. Her images rest in the space between intellect and intuition. Chai's curiosity about the interior space of her tool — the large format camera, comparable to the interior space of a mouth — leads to the idea of the camera obscura, a darkened room with a small opening to the world.

Light Work Gallery

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

Curated from our collection, Light Work is pleased to present a selection from two of Dawoud Bey's photographic projects: An American Project and Embracing Eatonville.

Black-and-white images from An American Project, made in Syracuse in 1985 during his artist residency, chronicle the community and history of the city. Embracing Eatonville was a photographic survey of Eatonville, FL — the oldest Black-incorporated town in the United States — that featured work by Dawoud Bey, Lonnie Graham, Carrie Mae Weems, and Deborah Willis, and was exhibited at Light Work in 2003. Bey made color photographs of high school students combining their portraits with text sharing personal hopes, fears, and dreams.

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.

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.

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.

Rachel Ivy Clarke: Material Interactions
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Rachel Ivy Clarke assigns specific fabrics, colors, and shapes to represent various data points about visitors, such as their hometown or the distance they traveled to get to the event, creating quilt designs based on their information. The resulting quilt is a collaborative snapshot of an event that brings together two seemingly disparate things: folk arts — a traditional form of slow, small, community-based creation — and data reflective of our contemporary society, which is rooted in rapid technological advances and the capitalization of mass communication and manufacturing. Shown together, the quilts provide a colorful and creative vision of different communities across the state while also providing a powerful example of how artists can help present data in a more visually effective way.

Melissa Crespo, director

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

The exuberant spirit of a lively pub session (what the Irish call craic) meets an out-of-the-ordinary love story in this irresistible musical based on the beloved indie film. Guy has been busking on Dublin's Grafton St. for too long. He's ready to chuck his music and forget the girlfriend who relocated to New York. Girl is an émigré from the Czech Republic with a tangled personal life, a passion for music, and a belief in Guy and his songs. It's a complicated business this love. It doesn't always turn out as expected. Sometimes, that's ok. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards and winner of eight, including Best Musical, Once is a warmly affecting show that understands the power of music to move the human heart.

Book by Enda Walsh, music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carney.

Highlights from the Light Work Collection: Dawoud Bey
Light Work Gallery

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

Curated from our collection, Light Work is pleased to present a selection from two of Dawoud Bey's photographic projects: An American Project and Embracing Eatonville.

Black-and-white images from An American Project, made in Syracuse in 1985 during his artist residency, chronicle the community and history of the city. Embracing Eatonville was a photographic survey of Eatonville, FL — the oldest Black-incorporated town in the United States — that featured work by Dawoud Bey, Lonnie Graham, Carrie Mae Weems, and Deborah Willis, and was exhibited at Light Work in 2003. Bey made color photographs of high school students combining their portraits with text sharing personal hopes, fears, and dreams.

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.

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.

Bill W. and Dr. Bob
Central New York Playhouse
Paul Cayen, director

Atonement Lutheran Church
116 W. Glen Ave., Syracuse

Bill W. and Dr. Bob, by Samuel Shem and Janet Surrey, tells the amazing story of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, and of their wives, who founded Al Anon. During the roaring '20s, New York stockbroker Bill Wilson rides high on money, fame, and booze. In '29, both he and the market crash and he becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon in Akron, Ohio, and a pillar of the community, has been a secret drunk for 30 years, often going into the operating room hungover and high on sedatives. His family has tried everything to no avail.

Through an astonishing series of events involving doctors, ministers, the Oxford Group evangelical movement, and Henrietta Sieberling, a scion of the Goodyear Rubber fortune, Bill and Bob meet on Mother's Day of 1935. The two men form a relationship which keeps each sober. Fired up, they seek out a third drunk to see if their program will work for others. Richly textured with the ragtime and jazz of the era, the play tells a magnificent American success story.

Since settling down in Central New York, he has been in constant demand as a studio musician.

Loren's finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC's #1 rated show "ER", "The Young and The Restless" and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle.

Following in his father's footsteps, LJ Barrigar is a guitar prodigy, too. He has played alongside Loren at a variety of venues large and small across North America and beyond. He brings a youthful spirit and sound to the acoustic guitar while breathing a gentle soulful vibe into the father-son duo.

This piece has been surrounded by both controversy and impassioned proponents, and has raised an unprecedented call to support political work and the difficult discourse it creates.

Glory Denied
Chelsea Opera

The story deals not only with Thompson's suffering in the jungles of southeast Asia, but also chronicles the personal struggles that followed his liberation and repatriation. In short, Glory Denied is the story of an American family during one of the nation's most turbulent eras.

Godspell
Redhouse

Redhouse at City Center

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, the Broadway legend behind Wicked, and based on the Gospel of St. Matthew, Godspell is a modern imagining of the last days of Jesus. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Often comedic and at times haunting, Godspell is a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man.

Once
Syracuse Stage
Melissa Crespo, director

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

The exuberant spirit of a lively pub session (what the Irish call craic) meets an out-of-the-ordinary love story in this irresistible musical based on the beloved indie film. Guy has been busking on Dublin's Grafton St. for too long. He's ready to chuck his music and forget the girlfriend who relocated to New York. Girl is an émigré from the Czech Republic with a tangled personal life, a passion for music, and a belief in Guy and his songs. It's a complicated business this love. It doesn't always turn out as expected. Sometimes, that's ok. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards and winner of eight, including Best Musical, Once is a warmly affecting show that understands the power of music to move the human heart.

Book by Enda Walsh, music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carney.
