From My Front Door

Willson states: “These pictures were made within walking distance of my home in Fayetteville, New York, a suburb of Syracuse. I imagine my neighborhood is similar to thousands of suburbs around the world, so perhaps my meanderings will have some value for others. The presence of Henry David Thoreau, who detailed his neighborhood in Walden, is always with me. I’m also returning to my roots: the first roll of film I shot, 35 years ago, was taken while delivering newspapers on foot near my home in Cayuga Heights, a suburb of Ithaca, New York.

I have always been drawn to places where the natural world intersects with the manmade, so the suburb is perfect for me. I certainly enjoy the national parks in the US, and take joy in the majesty of a sunrise. But it seems more important to me to find inspiration in a thin layer of snow covering blacktop, a telephone pole, a wooden fence and some vinyl siding. These are my surroundings and I insist on creating images of them that intrigue me.”

Willson Cummer is a fine-art photographer, curator and teacher who lives near Syracuse, New York. He has exhibited nationally in juried shows; his first solo NYC show was at OK Harris.  He is a New York Foundation for the Arts MARK Alumnus. He publishes the blog “New Landscape Photography”. His work explores humanity’s place in the environment. You can preview his Parking Garages book on the Blurb website. Willson’s limited-edition prints are for sale in Central New York at the Gandee Gallery of Fabius. The Pierogi gallery, in Brooklyn, also carries Willson’s work, as does the online gallery CoEdit Collection.

Ke-nekt’ Chamber Music Series: Countertenor Reginald Mobley
Wednesday, February 8, 2017 • 7:30PM
Host: Mihoko Tsutsumi
Sheldon Hall Ballroom
Pre-concert Talk 7:00PM

Countertenor Reginald Mobley delights audiences with his “crystalline diction and pure, evenly produced tone” (Miami Herald), and “elaborate and inventive ornamentation” (South Florida Classical Review). His natural and preferred habitat as a countertenor soloist is within the Baroque works of Bach, Charpentier, Handel, and Purcell but is equally comfortable in repertoire of later periods, musical theatre, jazz standards, and torch songs.

Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
Directed by Devin Brain
America’s premiere touring classical theatre company presents their diverse-cast production of this Shakespeare classic. With a presidential election year and the “Ides of March” just behind us, take time to reflect on ambition, loyalty, love of country, backroom politics, and the historical patterns we can’t stop repeating.

“Delivered…crisply and compellingly”

X: A New Play by Marcus Gardley
Directed by Ian Belknap
The assassination of Malcolm X—both the story we think we know and details seldom shared—brought vividly and lyrically to life. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar provides the framework for an award-winning playwright to deepen our understanding of this complex, compelling figure in the tumultuous era of the 1960s.

“One of the most promising contemporary playwrights”
—Broadway World
