The Other New York: 2012 (TONY 2012)
August 30 – October 21, 2012
TONY 2012 is a community-wide, multi-venue biennial exhibition that is the result of a major collaboration among fourteen art organizations in Syracuse collectively presenting work by 63 artists. This ambitious project aims to highlight the rich talent of artists across Upstate New York, with a special focus on Central New York and the surrounding counties.
Included in the SUArt Galleries venue for TONY: 2012 are a finely cast and delicate sculptural porcelain by Ithaca native Matthew Glaysher, a multi-channel video by Tammy Brackett exploring an artificial landscape made from pages from books, and a series of small paintings examining local abandoned houses by Buffalo artist Amy Greenan. The other participants, Juan Cruz, Sara DiDonato, Sue Huggins Leopard, Barbara Page, and James Skvarch are exhibiting works on paper, reflecting the strength and longtime collecting interest of the University Art Collection.
TONY: 2012 is organized by the Everson Museum of Art in collaboration with ArtRage—The Norton Putter Gallery, Community Folk Art Center, Erie Canal Museum, Light Work, Onondaga Historical Association, Punto de Contacto/Point of Contact, Rosamond Gifford Zoo, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, SUArt Galleries, Urban Video Project, The Warehouse Gallery, City of Syracuse, and XL Projects. Major funding is provided by The Central New York Community Foundation through the John F. Marsellus Fund.
