ONLINE Everson Art Book Club: The Last Painting of Sara de Vos

We are reading The Last Painting of Sara de Vos by Dominic Smith for the August session. The story starts in Amsterdam in 1631. It ends in Sydney, Australia in 2000. Together, we will travel through four centuries and across continents chasing the fortunes of a painting called “At the Edge of a Wood.” Dominic Smith wraps the journey in love, deceit, and international intrigue. When you finish the last page, you may want to return to Amsterdam and start the journey all over again.

Scholastics Art & Writing Awards

Founded in 1923, the Scholastic Art Awards are the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious educational initiative supporting student achievement in the arts. Every year, students across the country in grades 7-12 are invited to enter original works of art in regional competitions. This year, over 2,500 students representing over 100 Central New York schools submitted 5,673 works of art, which was then judged by professional artists, educators, and photographers. The judges award first place (Gold Key), second place (Silver Key), honorable mentions, and special award honorees. Gold Key winners move on to compete at the national level, while a small selection of the Silver Key winners are displayed at the Everson.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson’s collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum’s collecting priorities, from the Museum’s earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Renegades & Reformers: American Art Pottery

Since acquiring its first works by Adelaide Alsop Robineau in 1916, the Everson Museum of Art has built one of the finest collections of art pottery in the world. Renegades and Reformers revolves around two common personality types among potters: the “renegades” who embarked on highly personal artistic quests that pushed clay and glaze to their limits, and the “reformers,” whose modern designs and social attitudes pushed back against Victorian mores.
