"Three Graces: Polly Apfelbaum, Tony Feher and Carrie Moyer" made their appearance at the Everson Museums Opening Night reception where the three artists discussed the meanings behind their work.
In Greco-Roman mythology, the three Graces were minor deities personifying joy, wonder and beauty. These qualities were believed to comprise the core of creativity in Classical history. Since then, artists have been painting and sculpting these divine figures.

Fernando Orellana's interactive artwork at the Everson Museum draws from ghost folklore.
When a person dies, three to four months later, his house and belongings are often sold off in an estate sale.
“These are weird places. People act like vultures scavenging through all of people’s leftovers. Usually if you go there, a little late, all that is left are the dishes and silverware. The stuff that no one wants,” Fernando Orellana said.
A lack of sunshine couldn't dampen the storied Westcott neighborhood's unique offering of food, art and culture.
For Westcott residents and neighbors, overcast skies and a lack of sunshine couldn’t put a damper on the 23rd iteration of the Westcott Street Cultural Fair. Despite the miserable weather, the people, food and vibrant culture of the historic Westcott neighborhood seemed to shine even brighter.
“What makes Westcott unique is the mix of different people that we have here. The energy and the activism of the neighborhood that you won’t see anywhere else,” said Marcellus resident Sondra Bromka.
Jordan Eagles, an artist who uses pig blood to create his work, will be speaking at the Everson Museum of Art about his inspiration. His exhibit, 'Red Giant,' will be on display through Jan. 5.
In 1998, art hobbyist Jordan Eagles slathered his canvas with red paint until it dripped down the white surface. The New York University student was trying to represent blood, but he was failing. His images looked flat; they weren’t coming alive like he’d wanted them to.
So he went to Chinatown and bought a pint of pig’s blood.
“I tried not being symbolic of the blood, but using authentic material,” he said.
