Cazenovia Stone Quarry Hill Art Park recently announced the opening of “The Other New York: 2012” exhibition will be held on Sept. 21 at the park.
The exhibition, which has been commonly referred to as “TONY: 2012,” is organized by the Everson Museum of Art in collaboration with 14 locations, including 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.
“Stone Quarry Hill Art Park is pleased to be included in this exciting multi-venue biennial exhibition that is the result of a major collaboration among the other venues in Syracuse. 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,” said SQHAP Director Sarah Webster. “The project offers diverse arts venues and outdoor public spaces for contemporary, creative expression on a scale not before seen in the greater Syracuse area.”
TONY 2012 will run at SQHAP from Friday, Sept. 21 through Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013, with the indoor portion of the exhibition closing on Oct. 28. An opening reception will be held in the John and Virginia Winner Art Gallery from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27.
With the support of Strategic Financial Services Inc. and Meadows Farm LLC, the Art Park will feature the work of Andrew Schuster and Tina Zagyva. Both artists will have outdoor installations, along with other works in the Winner Memorial Art Gallery. Curatorial support is being provided by Jen Pepper.
The gallery is open from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday to Sunday.
SQHAP, which consists of 104 acres of land and more than four miles of hiking trails, is one of the first outdoor sculpture parks in the United States.
In 2011, the park celebrated its 20th anniversary and was named among the top ten Sculpture Parks and Trails in National Geographic’s “Secret Journeys of a Lifetime, 500 of the World’s Best Hidden Travel Gems.”
