Angela Fraleigh, Carried by Voices, 2014, oil and 23kt gold leaf and alkyd on canvas.

September 24 – December 31, 2016
Angela Fraleigh, based in New York City and Allentown, co-opts the techniques, media, and styles of the European Old Masters to create monumental paintings of female figures that explore social constructs of gender, power, and identity. Combining abstraction and realism, her visually seductive and complicated paintings reflect on art history, literature, and popular culture. For the Everson, Fraleigh presents new paintings inspired by works in the Everson’s collection, women of the Arts and Crafts movement and important female figures in the history of Central New York.

The exhibition originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, State University of New York at New Paltz.

Realism and abstraction are the two poles of painting in the 20th century. Drawn from the Everson’s collection, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of abstract works from the 20th century to explore the wide variety of formal and compositional decisions artists make when depicting simplified forms, reductive shapes, gestural or precise lines, and selecting a color palette. Primarily comprised of paintings, a selection of sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, video, ceramics, and decorative arts objects are included to draw connections among the various media and approaches to both two and three-dimensional objects.

Adelaide Alsop Robineau, a major figure in the Arts and Crafts movement and today considered one of America’s preeminent art potters, is known for her exquisite porcelains decorated with intricate carvings and crystalline glazes. This exhibition features more than seventy of Robineau’s works, a number of which were part of the Everson’s original purchase of Robineau’s porcelains in 1916, an acquisition that set the course for the Museum’s long-term commitment to collecting ceramics. On display in the exhibition are many visitor favorites, including the famous Scarab Vase, believed to be Robineau’s masterpiece.

Animals have been the subject of art for millennia, beginning with ancient cave paintings made over 35,000 years ago. From scientific renderings of nature’s wondrous creatures to depictions of livestock and beasts of burden, to commemorating our beloved four-legged family members, artists have recorded the many roles animals play in our world.

New York-based artist Kate Gilmore combines humor and physical endurance in her feminist-inspired works to create strikingly memorable performances and videos. Gilmore’s performances typically showcase the artist or other women femininely dressed and engaged in monotonous, physically arduous, and often rather inane tasks that call out and disrupt gender stereotypes. For the Everson, Gilmore presents a selection of video performances spanning more than a decade as well as a new temporary sculptural installation created specifically for the Everson Community Plaza. Linking the indoor and outdoor components, performers will activate the public sculpture throughout the summer.

Reponsive_Eyes.jpg

Exhibition extended to July 15!
In 1965 the Museum of Modern Art opened The Responsive Eye, a landmark exhibition which featured works by 100 modern artists who used abstract forms to examine how different shapes, patterns and colors could affect the eye of a viewer. Often called “Op Art” due to their relationships to the study of optics and optical illusions, these works appear to move, shimmer, or vibrate despite the fact that they are stationary. This exhibition revisits the work of four of the artists included in the seminal survey: Josef Albers, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Frank Stella and Victor Vasarely, as well as their Latin contemporary Jesús Rafael Soto.

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the passage of women’s suffrage in New York State in 1917, Seen and Heard explores the state’s history of activism and use of the arts as a catalyst for social change. Inspired by Barbara Kruger’s “Who Speaks, Who is Silent?”, a monumental work in the Everson’s permanent collection that addresses the implication of silence and representation for women, this exhibition brings together newly commissioned work from artists working in photography, printmaking, and social practice, as well as several works from the Museum’s collection. Accompanied by a series of public programs, Seen and Heard explores the language and tactics of protest through the arts.

Accompanied by a series of passengers with particular perspectives on the waterway, Lorenz will make stops and presentations at historic sites, museums, and other canal corridor locations. The project will culminate with a multi-media exhibition and series of programs at the Everson in the fall, bringing together newly-created objects as well as research, documentation, and materials from the voyage.

Marie Lorenz, Erie Canal Project, 2011.

July 1 – August 7, 2016
For over a decade, Marie Lorenz has been exploring and documenting the waterways of New York City in boats she designs and builds as part of her ongoing project Tide and Current Taxi. On July 1, Lorenz extends the project, ambitiously traveling from Buffalo (with a launch at the Albright Knox Gallery) to Albany along the historic Erie Canal and onto New York City via the Hudson River (arriving at the High Line). Accompanied by a series of passengers with particular perspectives on the waterway, Lorenz will make stops and presentations at historic sites, museums, and other canal corridor locations. The project will culminate with a multi-media exhibition and series of programs at the Everson in the fall, bringing together newly-created objects as well as research, documentation, and materials from the voyage. This project is commissioned by the Everson, with support from CNY Arts, NYSCA, etc. Project partners include the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and Erie Canal Corp., Albright Knox Gallery, Memorial Art Gallery, Erie Canal Museum and Sculpture Space.

January 28 – April 30, 2017
Realism and abstraction are the two poles of painting in the 20th century. Drawn from the Everson’s collection, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of abstract works from the 20th century to explore the wide variety of formal and compositional decisions artists make when depicting simplified forms, reductive shapes, gestural or precise lines, and selecting a color palette. Primarily comprised of paintings, a selection of sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, video, ceramics, and decorative arts objects are included to draw connections among the various media and approaches to both two and three-dimensional objects.

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the passage of women’s suffrage in New York State in 1917, Seen and Heard explores the state’s history of activism and use of the arts as a catalyst for social change.

Accompanied by a series of public programs, Seen and Heard explores the language and tactics of protest through the arts.
