TR Ericsson uses the story of his mother to present a searing, soft, and complex portrait of post-industrial life in America. "I Was Born To Bring You Into This World" begins as an intimate encounter with an artist’s family archive and becomes a potent opportunity to reflect and scrutinize the trials and tribulations of our own lives.

For over a decade, Marie Lorenz has been exploring and documenting the waterways of New York City in boats she designs and builds as part of her ongoing project Tide and Current Taxi. On July 1, Lorenz extends the project, ambitiously traveling from Buffalo (with a launch at the Albright Knox Gallery) to Albany along the historic Erie Canal and onto New York City via the Hudson River (arriving at the High Line). Accompanied by a series of passengers with particular perspectives on the waterway, Lorenz will make stops and presentations at historic sites, museums, and other canal corridor locations. The project will culminate with a multi-media exhibition and series of programs at the Everson in the fall, bringing together newly-created objects as well as research, documentation, and materials from the voyage. This project is commissioned by the Everson, with support from CNY Arts, NYSCA, etc. Project partners include the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and Erie Canal Corp., Albright Knox Gallery, Memorial Art Gallery, Erie Canal Museum and Sculpture Space.

Painters, photographers and ceramists alike have found inspiration in the landscape, drawing on the natural world as a subject, metaphor and creative force. Taking a generous approach to interpreting the genre, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of works from the Everson’s collection that highlights landscapes’ enduring hold on the human imagination. Featured are well-known works by Andrew Wyeth and Ansel Adams as well as little-seen pieces by Robert Arneson, Kenzo Okada, Laura Gilpin and others.

In 1965 the Museum of Modern Art opened The Responsive Eye, a landmark exhibition which featured works by 100 modern artists who used abstract forms to examine how different shapes, patterns and colors could affect the eye of a viewer. Often called “Op Art” due to their relationships to the study of optics and optical illusions, these works appear to move, shimmer, or vibrate despite the fact that they are stationary. This exhibition revisits the work of four of the artists included in the seminal survey: Josef Albers, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Frank Stella and Victor Vasarely, as well as their Latin contemporary Jesús Rafael Soto.

From 19th century Parisian boulevards to late 20th century scenes of downtown Syracuse, the images included in this exhibition explore the many diverse aspects of life in the city: busy shopfronts and beach boardwalks, crowded fairs and quiet parks and streets teeming with or devoid of human presence. Featuring over 60 works by 22 photographers, the exhibition includes examples by such internationally known figures as Eugène Atget, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Robert Doisneau and Garry Winogrand, as well as photographers who have worked locally, such as Toren Beasley, Michael Davis and Bruce Gilden.
