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.

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.

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.

689 N. Clinton St., Syracuse

It's been three years since the ghosts came to visit Scrooge and he is a changed man. He is making up for all that he has missed in life and we're not just talking charity work. He is living La Vida Loca, baby, with expensive wine, fast women, and way too much song! Huzzah! He is throwing money around like a lottery winner in Vegas! Bob Cratchit, nephew Freddy, and the rest of the Scrooge gravy train have to stop him soon or they are all headed for the Poor House. Join us for Scrooge's Third Annual Holiday Bash and raise a glass to old Fezziwig (but try not to be the one who goes face down in the Figgy Pudding). Cheers!

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.
