Gareth Mason: Carnal Flux

On View January 11 – March 15, 2020

For British artist Gareth Mason, porcelain is an all-consuming obsession. His lusty manipulation of clay is brought full-circle through the metamorphic power of fire. His surfaces seethe, buckle, and ooze with a tectonic force that reflects his own passion for process. This exhibition is a partnership with the Syracuse University School of Art, with additional support from Laguna Clay Company.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects

On View November 16, 2019 – March 22, 2020

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.
