Made in NY 2017: Envisioning the Future

The Schweinfurth Art Center’s Made in NY exhibit is an annual juried exhibition that showcases artwork by contemporary New York State artists. This year is different from years’ past in that this show has a theme.

The exhibit reflects each artist’s vision for the future, and includes subjects such as the environment, community, technology, aging and globalism.

The work encompasses a variety of media including photography, sculpture, ceramics, paintings, drawing, fiber, glass, and installation.

Made in NY 2017: Envisioning the Future opens on Friday, March 24, with an Artist Reception from 5-8pm. Entry to the Artists’ Reception is free, and it is open to the public.

Artist awards, including $1000 for Best of Show, will be announced at 6 pm during the Artist Reception. The exhibit features 63 artworks by 52 artists who reside across New York state. The majority of artists reside in Central New York, but the show also includes artists from farther afield, including New York City.

The jurors for this year are Yvonne Buchanan and Nancy Green. Buchanan is an Associate Professor of Studio Arts at Syracuse University and co-founder of Talent Agency, an art mentorship program in Syracuse. Green is the Curator of European and American Art at the Johnson Museum of Art in Ithaca. After reviewing 309 artworks, the jurors selected 63 artworks for installation.

Made in NY 2017: Envisioning the Future is one of three new spring exhibitions opening at the Schweinfurth on March 24. The Artist Reception is the opening reception also for Paradise, an interactive sound installation by Lorne Covington and Douglas Quinn, and it is the opening for Theresa Daddona-Traub’s What Makes a Heart Bleed?

Opening events include a dance performance at 6:30 pm by Isabelle Wellauer and Absolute Dance Group in the Paradise exhibit on the second floor. The new spring exhibitions will be on view through Sunday, May 21.
