SYRACUSE, NY.- The Everson Museum of Art in collaboration with The Arts & Crafts Society of Central New York is planning a free one-day symposium on Saturday, October 17, 2009, titled Women as Visionaries- Women as Participants. The symposium will be held from 9:45 a.m. - 3 p.m. in the Everson’s Hosmer Auditorium, registration will be held from 9 – 9:30 a.m. All are invited, but advanced registration is required, and can be made by emailing or calling Debora Ryan, Everson Museum of Art Senior Curator, (315) 474-6064.

Four scholars will discuss a range of topics including a general overview of the history of women in the Arts & Crafts Movement. The Everson Museum is a center for the study of American ceramics with strong holdings in American Art Pottery. The symposium will address the history of ceramic arts during the Arts & Crafts period and its importance to the Syracuse area.

“The Everson aims to educate audiences and raise awareness about the rich history of Arts & Crafts in Central New York and the important role women played on the scene nationally,” said Debora Ryan, Everson Museum of Art Senior Curator.

A new installation of New York State Arts & Crafts and a special exhibition entitled Women of Rookwood: American Art Pottery from the Joyce and Eliot Sterling Collection are scheduled to open August 8, 2009 in conjunction with the symposium. In addition, two hundred examples of American Art Pottery (including many designed or decorated by women) are on view in the Everson’s Center for the Study of American Ceramics. These remarkable resources provide speakers with excellent reference material while allowing participants to view objects that will be highlighted during the symposium.

Comments will be made by David Rudd, President of the Arts & Crafts Society of Central New York, Everson Director Steven Kern, and Senior Curator Debora Ryan.

The symposium will feature four speakers:
