From Funk to Punk: Left Coast Ceramics
November 11, 2017 – April 15, 2018From Funk to Punk: Left Coast Ceramics brings together an eclectic group of artists whose varied aesthetic and conceptual styles capture the evolution of ceramics in California, Oregon, and Washington. The exhibition is organized by Peter Held, a longtime curator in the field and acknowledged expert in West Coast ceramics. According to Held, this survey aspires “to track the real and perceived discrepancies between work on opposite coasts of the United States; provide opportunities to experience works by artists who lack broad exposure in the East; and lastly, share his passion for the pioneering and revolutionary artists in the field who challenge prevailing preconceptions stifling the potential of the medium.” Learn more about From Funk to Punk.
Seen and Heard: An Active Commemoration of Women’s Suffrage
June 10 – August 27, 2017A celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the passage of women’s suffrage in New York State, Seen and Heard explored the use of the arts as a catalyst for social change. Artists have played key roles in social and political movements throughout history, altering the ways in which people view and think about the world. Whether performance, music, or visual, art of any medium has the power to challenge assumptions and inspire passions as nothing else can, and artists harness that power to analyze humanity, initiate tough conversations, protest injustice, and affect emotional and systematic change Learn more about Seen and Heard.
The Creatures Among Us
January 14 – August 13, 2017Animals 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. The Creatures Among Us celebrates our enduring fascination with animals by presenting a selection of diverse works—some not seen in years—drawn from the Everson’s collection.
