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.

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.

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.

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.

Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of the United States
SU Art Galleries

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.

Sebastian Maniscalco: Nobody Does This Tour
Landmark Theatre

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Touted as "...the hottest comic in America," by The New York Times, Sebastian Maniscalco has celebrated heights only a few comedians ever achieve. A string of record-breaking, sold-out arena shows includes a comedy record for Chicago's United Center, the highest gross for a single event at Boston's TD garden, and a historic four-show run at Madison Square Garden breaking the record for most shows sold in a weekend for the venue. That blockbuster success coupled with Netflix original comedy specials and a starring role alongside Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated The Irishman, it's no surprise that both Pollstar and Billboard have honored the standup with their top touring awards.

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.

Always ... Patsy Cline
Baldwinsville Theatre Guild
Colin Keating, director

Price: $22 in advance, $26 regular at the door, $22 students/seniors
First Presbyterian Church of Baldwinsville
64 Oswego St., Baldwinsville

Always ... Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death.

The musical play, complete with down-home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy' unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams, and Walking After Midnight ... 27 songs in all. The show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS ... Patsy Cline."

Starring Briana Jessie & Kristina Marie Abbott.

To be granted admission, patrons must present proof of COVID-19 vaccination OR a negative COVID test. All patrons, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while inside the facility at all times.

Everson Museum of Art

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.

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.

Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of the United States
SU Art Galleries

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.

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.

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.
