Everson: Combining ‘Every Season’

Everson Museum’s ‘Festival of Trees’ through Dec. 14

In the early 1960's, the internationally renowned architect, I.M. Pei (John Fitzgerald Kennedy Library in Boston, Grand Louvre in Paris), began designs for an art museum to be located in Syracuse, New York (of all places). A big name for a small museum -- this is what matters. The Everson Museum of Art, in my opinion, could be one of the most underutilized places by the community in Central New York.

Three’s Company

Art writer Carl Mellor takes in a trio of diverse exhibits at the Everson Museum

The Everson Museum of Art’s autumn exhibits are literally in the mix. One show speculates on links between our world and the afterlife, another features works by Syracuse potters, and a third presents single-channel videos, sound and video installations and other pieces created by artists in residence at Owego’s Signal Culture. Clearly, each exhibition has its own identity.

When I Paint My Masterpiece …

The Inevitable Coffee Ring

For years that span from childhood until the present, I've enjoyed The Joy of Painting, but I've never experienced the joy of actually painting. It's not the worst artistic outlet, but there is a personal awkwardness that presents itself when confronting the concept.

He was doing what he loved: painting, entertaining, teaching. He died of lymphoma in 1995.
