  • 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....

  • 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. ...

  • The work of Mexico-based Colectivo Los Ingrávidos is an exercise in formal experimentation as an act of political and spiritual resistance to mass media and its collusion with state power and extractive capitalism. This exhibition will feature three short but potent film works by the collective: Fracking, Tear Gas, and Batalla....

  • 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....

  • Achala Wali’s complex drawings unfold through the layering of graphite, ink, and other mixed media onto paper. She takes inspiration from the natural world—everything from the forms made by ice as it breaks over a lake to shadows caused by an eclipse to industrial rust. She translates these scenes into abstract forms. As Wali layers one pattern over another, her drawings emerge, some pulsing with energy and movement and others appearing frozen in time....

  • Over the past four decades, artist Helene Starr has built a significant body of work around the act of draping clay slabs into soft crenelated forms that evoke fiber, flesh, and the natural world. Organic Unfolding marks a return to her work that utilizes curving steel forms that let her array her forms in lyrical three-dimensional compositions....
