ANNIE

Holding onto hope when times are tough can take an awful lot of determination, and sometimes, an awful lot of determination comes in a surprisingly small package. Little Orphan Annie has reminded generations of theatergoers that sunshine is always right around the corner, and now the best-loved musical of all time is set to return in a new production – just as you remember it and just when we need it most.

Annie, directed by Jenn Thompson, features the iconic book and score, written by Tony Award®-winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin. This celebration of family, optimism and the American spirit remains the ultimate cure for all the hard knocks life throws your way.

The Saturday, October 8 matinee performance will be ASL interpreted.

Rebecca Hutchinson: Re-Generation

On view September 3—December 31, 2022

Rebecca Hutchinson’s sculptural installations are influenced by the behavioral dynamics found in nature. Her upcoming exhibition at the Everson Museum of Art is focused on the themes of re-generation and observation of natural built systems. Re-Generation highlights Hutchinson’s cultural and environmental research on the industrial legacy of Central New York. Along with its salt mines, Syracuse also possessed massive deposits of soda ash, a material used in the manufacture of ceramics. These materials, in tandem with an influx of European immigrants with craft and material expertise led to the development of Syracuse China, which quickly grew into one of the nation’s largest dinnerware manufacturers.

Reflecting on the decline of the soda ash mining and the closure of Syracuse China, Re-Generation takes the form of large unfired paperclay vessels that will be installed in an inverted position, showcasing on the surface drawings of rare orchids that have evolved out of the polluted soil and are currently thriving in the Syracuse region.

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance

Raymon Elozua: Structure/Dissonance

On view September 10—December 31, 2022

Structure/Dissonance celebrates nearly five decades of work by New York-based artist Raymon Elozua, who first came to prominence in the 1970s with detailed trompe l’oeil ceramic sculptures of decaying industrial landscapes. Elozua’s first major museum exhibition since his 2003 retrospective at the Mint Museum, Structure/Dissonance focuses on three conceptual bodies of work that explore the combined physical properties of three elemental materials: ceramic, glass, and steel. This exhibition contextualizes these vital sculptures within Elozua’s intellectual landscape through the inclusion of a series of collections and research projects that are inextricably linked to his artistic output.

Elozua’s insatiable appetite to uncover the hidden cultural meanings attached to his chosen materials has led him to obsessively collect esoteric objects like gas stove burners and rusted enamel cookware, as well as photographs and ephemera related to topics as varied as labor history and decaying “borscht belt” bungalow colonies. These collections and obsessions help to construct a more accurate picture of the complex intellect that gives depth and meaning to Elozua’s singular expressive sculptures.

Curious Vessels: The Rosenfield Collection

On View March 12—October 23, 2022

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past thirty years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe. Her ambition for her collection has always been clear—instead of donating work to a museum, she would rather donate it to a restaurant, where patrons could enjoy the work as originally intended.

Curious Vessels is a celebration of both Rosenfield’s eclectic taste and her unrivaled generosity. Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work. After viewing the exhibition, viewers are invited to become participants and collaborators by eating a meal in the Everson’s innovative new café, Louise, which is entirely stocked with functional vessels from the Rosenfield Collection.

Dan Shanahan: Scenes of Syracuse
Runs 10/01/2022 - 11/13/2022

Dan Shanahan: Scenes of Syracuse

Dan Shanahan’s paintings highlight the quiet beauty found in everyday scenes of city life. The watercolors, which Shanahan paints en plein air and on location, depict residential and downtown city streets. While Shanahan’s paintings are mostly devoid of people, they teem with evidence of a small but bustling city: cars line the roads, and businesses prosper along downtown city blocks. Featuring renderings of popular locations, including Armory Square, Franklin Square, and the Westcott and University neighborhoods, Scenes of Syracuse is a love letter to our distinctive urban environment.

Shanahan is a selected artist from the Everson’s CNY Artist Initiative, a competitive program that highlights the multi-faceted talents of artists living in Central New York.

Everson CNY Artist Initiative made possible with support from Terry and Bill Delavan.

Common Ground

On view November 12—December 31, 2022

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski’s sculpture is a testament to the artist’s ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

Common Ground uses Tetkowski’s World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson’s vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terra-cotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson’s collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse’s focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. Common Ground uses ceramics, one of humankind’s oldest art forms to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.
