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.

2021 Light Work Grants: Carla Liesching, Jessica Magallanes Martinez, Paul Pearce
Light Work Gallery

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

Light Work is pleased to announce the 47th annual Light Work Grants in Photography. The 2021 recipients are Carla Liesching (Ithaca), Jessica Magallanes Martinez (Syracuse), and Paul Pearce (Mattydale). Nidaa Aboulhosn (Ithaca) and Zaire Knight (Syracuse) each received Honorable Mention recognitions.

The Light Work Grants in Photography provide support and encouragement to Central New York artists working in photography within a 50-mile radius of Syracuse, New York. Each recipient receives a $3,000 stipend and appears in Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual.

This year's judges were Ryan Arthurs (visual artist, co-founder of Rivalry Projects, a contemporary art gallery in Buffalo), Ashlyn Davis (writer, editor, and the former executive director and curator of Houston Center for Photography, chief editor of spot magazine, and co-founder of Assembly), Courtney Reid-Eaton (creative director for the Documentary Diversity Project at Duke University Center for Documentary Studies).

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.

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.

Drawn from the Everson's collection, this exhibition features a range of works that address a basic human necessity: food and drink. Whether attending a formal meal or a casual picnic, browsing the grocery aisle or grabbing a snack, eating and drinking is a part of our shared humanity. Including paintings, photographs, prints, and ceramics, "From Soup to Nuts" is an eclectic multi-course artistic feast.

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.

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

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Robin Holder is a biracial, contemporary artist based in New York/New Jersey. Her research based, mixed technique works are saturated with cultural references that reveal the conflicts of our human experience. Holder's work, exploring societal access alongside lack of empowerment, provides unique opportunities for challenging discussions about socio-economic imbalances, and the complexities of identity, class, cultural inequity, race, and religion.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Robin Holder is a biracial, contemporary artist based in New York/New Jersey. Her research based, mixed technique works are saturated with cultural references that reveal the conflicts of our human experience. Holder's work, exploring societal access alongside lack of empowerment, provides unique opportunities for challenging discussions about socio-economic imbalances, and the complexities of identity, class, cultural inequity, race, and religion.

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.

A Dickens of a Death
Acme Mystery Company

Spaghetti Warehouse
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!
