Hidden in Plain Sight: Exploring the Unrecognized Role of the Canal in Irrigating Western New York

As part of the Erie Canal Museum's ongoing Erie Eats: Erie Canal Foodways Project, March's Lunchtime Lecture features Dr. Stephen Shaw of SUNY ESF discussing irrigation efforts in Western New York using Erie Canal water, Wednesday, March 17 at 12 p.m. EDT. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the program will be streamed live on the Museum's Facebook page. Please consider making a $5 donation, as is typical of all Lunchtime Lectures. Everyone who donates will receive a personal link to watch the lecture live on Zoom and participate in a Q&A session. Donations may be made here: tinyurl.com/2rhqhea9

While the waters of the Erie Canal are usually considered in regards to boating, for close to a century the Canal has also served as a conduit to provide water for irrigation. In particular, the western portion of the canal was constructed above the elevation of the surrounding land surface, allowing for the diversion of Lake Erie water into numerous streams by gravity alone. The ability to use the canal for irrigation is a unique but little-recognized natural resource within Western New York that supports thousands of acres of high value crops, fruits, and vegetables as well as a number of golf courses.

This talk will introduce the geography, infrastructure, and hydrology related to the canal in Western New York. It will explore how farms and others currently use water from the canal. Additionally, the talk will discuss plans to expand irrigation to support the region’s agricultural economy and to provide some resiliency to the increased occurrence of drought.

Tea, Chit-Chat, and the Problem of Politeness

March 21, What did the tea table look like in the Georgian era? Focusing on representations of tea drinking in Britain, India, and North America, Romita Ray will analyze how the histories of porcelain and silver in Britain created new ways of engaging with an expensive Chinese drink. She will also look at how tea utensils produced the spectacle of politeness at a time when the Chinese import emerged a controversial commodity.

Participants that are Members of the Museum receive a free take-home bag that can be picked up at the Museum. Included are tea and other treats to enjoy during the talk.

Bi: Romita Ray is associate professor of art history in the department of Art and Music Histories (College of Arts and Sciences) at Syracuse University. She received her M.A., M.Phil., and Ph. D degrees in art history from Yale University, and her B.A. degree in art history from Smith College. Ray is currently working on a book manuscript about the visual cultures of tea in India, tentatively titled Leafy Wonders: Art, Science, and the Aesthetics of Tea in Colonial and Modern India, for which she has been awarded numerous grants and fellowships.

The Floating Bridge: Postmodern and Contemporary Japanese Ceramics

The Everson began collecting contemporary Japanese ceramics in earnest in the mid 1970s, an experimental period when artists were applying geometric forms and conceptual strategies to traditional materials and forms. The exhibition highlights this under-recognized generation of artists who are now credited with laying the groundwork for today’s contemporary ceramic movement in Japan.

What Happened: Luis Arnias, Simon Liu, and Zhou Tao Exhibition

Light Work’s Urban Video Project presents , a three-person exhibition featuring the work of filmmakers Luis Arnias, Simon Liu, and Zhou Tao. The installation will be on view from February 4 thru April 3, 2021, at UVP’s outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art at 401 Harrison Street, Thursday through Saturday, from dusk until 11pm. What Happened takes us on a tour of ambiguous scenes where we find ourselves disoriented, unsure where and when we are, whether we find ourselves before, after, or during an indeterminate event. These works bear the unmistakable trace of the volatile forces shaping our current moment: protest, pandemic, state brutality, racialized violence, and ecological disaster. But this isn’t the news. As in life, these forces confront us in mostly oblique ways, as a nagging anxiety attaching to fragments torn from context and transforming them into a thousand strange and fascinating portents: a lost face mask in the gutter, an uprooted tree, an endlessly spinning loading icon, a cheerful pop song’s hollow echo, a flash that may or may not be fireworks.

Are these terrains mundane or extraordinary? Fact or fiction? Zones of autonomy or oppression? Recovery or impending disaster?

Did it already happen? Will it happen soon? Is it happening now?

The resulting show is a meditation on living through “interesting” times.

In conjunction with the exhibition, UVP will host a FREE live-streamed screening of the What Happened program with additional works, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers on Thursday, March 4, at 6:30pm. The link will go live on UVP’s website Saturday, March 4, at 6:30 pm EST.

BE SAFE: MASK UP AND SOCIAL DISTANCE— Exhibition patrons visiting the Everson Plaza must maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet between individuals at all times, except for groups visiting from the same household. We encourage everyone to wear face masks to safeguard the public health and as an extension of our commitment to help stop the spread of COVID-19. UVP limits attendance at all screenings to 20 people to adhere to Onondaga County’s latest social distancing guidelines.
