AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art

AbStranded brings together contemporary American artists who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. A prominent use of the hand looms large—through knitting, weaving, quilting and more—and suggests an alternative mode of communication within a digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

This exhibition is sponsored in part by The Coby Foundation.

Custom fine jewelry (https://fgconclusions.com/),

From Friday, October 15 - Thursday October 21, a video featuring one of the artisans in the collective will be released each day and will be available for 24 hours.

All access viewing will be available for all the artisans’ videos from Friday, October 22ndth.

While the virtual summit is free, donations are requested and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the CNY Arts Covid-19 Arts Impact Fund, which provides financial support to artists and arts organizations in a 7-county region of Central New York and the Mohawk Valley affected by the pandemic.

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection

On view July 24, 2021-January 30, 2022

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts close to forty works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and enduring network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld’s vast network of reciprocal relationships.
