This exhibit will transport visitors back in time with a narrative told through the medium of quilts. Quilters are invited to quilt in the gallery during the Museum’s open hours. All quilts on display are from the collection of Francis M. Parks, who will be leading a walk-through of the exhibit during the reception on Sunday, February 24 from 1pm until 3pm. Refreshments and tea will be available. The Erie Canal Museum is FREE and open seven days a week: Monday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm; Sunday, 10am – 3pm.

Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, the upcoming exhibition American Moderns, 1910-1960: O'Keeffe to Rockwell, explores a wide variety of American art from the first half of the twentieth century. The exhibition consists of fifty-one paintings and four sculptures by such prominent artists as Georgia O'Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, Milton Avery, Stuart Davis and Arthur Dove. Drastic social, political and economical changes during this time period challenged artists to define what could be considered "modern" from a wide variety of definitions. From abstraction and cityscapes to realism and nature, these works selected from the Brooklyn Museum's permanent collection offer a new perspective on American modern art.
Opening night reception: February 15, 2013
Enjoy entertainment, light hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar before previewing the exhibition. See website to purchase tickets.

OHA has amassed a collection of over 2,000 stereographs, or stereo views, of Onondaga County and beyond. Archived in the research holdings, these 3-D photographs have never before been exhibited. Guest curator Colleen Woolpert offers an overview of the collection, providing insight into the little known history of stereo photography while taking us back into the past with the aid of exhibition stereoscopes. The exhibit will be of interest to adults and children alike with historic viewing devices, books, and related 3-D ephemera.
Colleen Woolpert is an interdisciplinary artist who uses photography, video, installation, and performance to explore visual and psychological perception. Her work includes the stereographic viewers at Forman Park in Syracuse, part of the Connective Corridor. There will be an opening reception for the exhibit on Friday, September 21 from 4 - 6 pm. The exhibit, reception, and museum are free and open to the public. The museum is open W-F 10 am - 4 pm; and S-S 11 am - 4 pm.

Photographer Rebecca Soderholm focuses on Upstate New York, its people and landscape, while capturing a collective human spirit in today’s world. For the Window Projects, "Crescendoe," is titled after one of the many tanneries that produced leather gloves in Johnston, NY during the first half of the 20th century, nearby where the work for this exhibition was created.
Developed as three panels that fit the large Warehouse Gallery windows, Soderholm accentuates the three-dimensionality of a fence, underlines the painterly qualities of a photographed landscape, and reveals her own fascination with the beauty of often forgotten landscapes. Born in Syracuse, New York, Soderholm received her B.F.A. in Photojournalism from the Rochester Institute of Technology and her M.F.A. in Photography from Yale University, School of Art where she studied with Todd Papageorge and Gregory Crewdson.
An Assistant Professor of Photography at Drew University (Madison, New Jersey), Soderholm’s most recent exhibition, Upstate was shown at 511 Gallery in New York City in the Spring of 2012. She currently lives in Upstate New York and Madison, New Jersey. This is her first solo museum show.
