Beyond the Blue

On view through November 21, 2021

After more than a year of COVID-19 isolation, the Everson Museum is grateful to shake off the blues by exhibiting life-affirming works from the permanent collection that are filled with joy, humor, and above all, color. Beyond the Blue is presented in collaboration with Art Macao 2021, an annual celebration of the arts on the island of Macao, a popular tourist destination near Hong Kong. In addition to a physical exhibition at the Everson, these works will be shared digitally with millions of visitors to Art Macao, an international art festival presented in museums, hotels, and other popular tourist destinations near Hong Kong.

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.

Tête-à-Tête-à-Tête: Drawings by Beatrice Wood

On view through August 8, 2021

Although known primarily for her lustrous ceramic vessels, legendary artist Beatrice Wood was a prolific drawer with a penchant for depicting sidelong glances and body language between couples (and thruples!). Particularly relevant during a pandemic that will long be remembered for social distancing, Tête-à-Tête-à-Tête is a celebration of Wood’s uncanny ability to capture the inherent drama of social interactions with a few deft strokes of her pen.

August 19, 2021 – September 26, 2021

Coordinated by ARISE, a non-profit agency based in Syracuse, UNIQUE celebrates the artistic talents of Central New Yorkers living with disabilities. The works included in this exhibition eloquently speak to the myriad thoughts, ideas, and feelings that all humans share, regardless of individual ability or circumstance. The annual competition invites submissions of art and literature which are then selected for display by a panel of judges, and the works are exhibited at the Everson Museum.

The Everson’s Community Exhibitions Program is generously supported by Community Bank, N.A

AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art

September 18, 2021 – January 2, 2022

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.
