Buffy Sainte Marie - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 11, 2013 - New York

Buffy Sainte-Marie virtually invented the role of Native American international activist pop star. Her concern for protecting indigenous intellectual property, and her distaste for the exploitation of Native American artists and performers has kept her in the forefront of activism in the arts for forty years. Throughout her career, she has made 17 albums of her music, three of her own television specials, spent five years on Sesame Street, scored movies, helped to found Canada's 'Music of Aboriginal Canada' JUNO category, raised a son, earned a Ph.D. in Fine Arts, taught Digital Music as adjunct professor at several colleges, and won an Academy Award Oscar for the song "Up Where We Belong". Signed to Vanguard, she was one of the folk scene's more prominent rising stars in the '60s, and certainly the only widely heard performer articulating Native American viewpoints in song. Much of her best material from this era, however, gained its greatest commercial inroads via cover versions. "Universal Soldier" was one of Donovan's first hits. "Until It's Time for You to Go," perhaps her best composition, was covered by numerous pop singers, and became a big British hit for Elvis Presley in the early '70s. "Cod'ine," one of the few '60s songs to explicitly address the dangers of drugs, was covered by Californian rock bands Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Charlatans. "Running For The Drum," Buffy's first album since the 1992 release "Coincidence and likely Stories," contains twelve new inspired songs and stories about current events, art, politics and the aboriginal people, that showcase her emotional integrity and thrilling voice! Buffy Sainte-Marie is accompanied by a hot 5-piece all-Aboriginal band, blending the edgy sound of Winnipeg's Gathering of Flies band with Buffy's longtime friends and backup singers Ulali. The concert combines new songs from the "Running for the Drum" CD including No No Keshagesh and Cho Cho Fire, alongside those of her classics most requested by fans - Universal Soldier, Up Where We Belong, Until It's Time for You to Go, Spin & Spin, Cod'ine, Piney Wood Hills, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Starwalker and lots of others.

Aesthetic Ambitions: Edward Lycett and Brooklyn's Faience Manufacturing Company - Brooklyn Museum
Through June 16, 2013 - Brooklyn

This exhibition highlights the nearly fifty-year career of ceramicist Edward Lycett (American, 1833-1910), creative director of the Faience Manufacturing Company from 1884 to 1890. The range of works illustrates Lycett's talent and adaptability to stylistic changes in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as well as his vision for Faience, a company based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, that earned acclaim for producing ornamental wares that introduced a new standard of excellence in American ceramics. These bold and eclectic pieces synthesized Japanese, Chinese, and Islamic influences characteristic of the Aesthetic movement and were sold in the United States' foremost art ware emporiums, including Tiffany & Company. Among the ceramics on view are 39 Faience pieces, including a number of large-scale vases. Also on view are Lycett's formula books, family photographs, and other ephemera; rare examples of ceramic works by his three sons; and other Brooklyn-made ceramics from the Museum's collection.

AB-EX / RE-CON:Abstract Expressionism Reconsidered - Nassau County Museum of Art
Through June 16, 2013 - Roslyn Harbor

Artists of the Abstract Expressionist school rejected the mass cultural values which were being formulated in America at mid-century, searching for alternatives to the consumer and advertising culture prevalent in post-World War II America.

Included in the exhibition are works by the stars of Abstract Expressionism, among them Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell and Mark Rothko. AB-EX / RE-CON: Abstract Expressionism Reconsidered also offers viewers the excitement of discovering some of the lesser-known but highly-regarded artists of the movement including Fritz Bultman and Jon Schueler. The exhibition runs through June 16.

Through June 16, 2013 - New York

C.Maxx Stevens (Seminole/Muscogee) is a visual storyteller whose deeply personal, eclectic constructions tell stories about places and people from her past.

Asad Faulwell / Chris Johanson Exhibits - Nassau County Museum of Art
Through June 16, 2013 - Roslyn Harbor

Born in Indiana, now a resident of Los Angeles, Asad Faulwell�s intricate mixed-media art focuses on images of Algerian women, especially the freedom fighters who were involved in the 1954-1962 struggle to end French occupation. They are shown against highly-decorative floral and geometric patterns familiar in Middle Eastern art. California-born Chris Johanson gained attention in the 2001 Whitney Biennial and has since been widely exhibited in this country and abroad. Johanson employs an exuberant color palette for simple and imperfect geometric shapes. According to Artforum, his �rough-hewn cartoon style� taps the late New Age Northern California style. The exhibition runs through June 16.

The Sing for Hope Pianos - throughout the five boroughs at outdoor locations from street-sides to parks
Through June 16, 2013 - The five boroughs

Sing for Hope Pianos works with artists with visions as diverse as their backgrounds to paint pianos and then places them outdoors throughout NYC's five boroughs as part of a public art installation to be enjoyed and played by all. After June 16, the pianos will live on at schools and organizations throughout the city where they can continue to be played and enjoyed. Artists who designed and customized pianos in previous years include fashion designers Diane von Furstenberg and Issac Mizrahi, visual artists Julian Schnabel and Scott Taylor and more. The program was founded by Camille Zamora and Monica Yunus, internationally acclaimed sopranos who share a common belief in the power of arts volunteerism to transform underserved communities. Since its launch in 2010 the program has gained the praise and support of notable figures such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg and world-famous Alicia Keys. Sing for Hope Pianos will be amplified by Chobani and while the pairing may seem unusual at first glance, they come together in a well-suited partnership as they align in the important mission to provide access to all, whether that access is rooted in the arts or in good food.

Figaro! (90210) - The NSD Theater
Through June 16, 2013 - New York

The debate over immigration reform takes center stage in this multi-cultural adaptation of Mozart’s opera “The Marriage of Figaro” set in present-day Los Angeles. Figaro! (90210) also makes the opera more accessible to contemporary audiences by distilling the action of the show to two and a half hours, including a fifteen minute intermission. Figaro! (90210) showcases Mozart’s celebrated music from The Marriage of Figaro note-for-note, but with an entirely new English (and Spanglish) libretto by writer Vid Guerrerio, that recasts the opera’s title character as an undocumented worker on a Beverly Hills estate. The NSD Theater is located at The New School for Drama. Performances will run June 11, 12, 14 and 15 at 8:00PM and Sunday, June 16 at 3:00PM.

Through June 16, 2013 - Fresh Meadows

Travel back to when circus traditions were born and witness incredible acts that would have had the villagers chattering for days! The courageous mid-air flips and catches of a man on the trapeze.

A jaw-dropping juggling tango team performing to passionate rhythms. Bicyclists whose spinning wheels turn smooth and speedy stunts. Majestic horses with graceful gaits and playful pups with teasing tricks. And what circus would be complete without bumbling clowns who bring the spirit of timeless comedy? It's all led by an affable Ringmaster and the great Big Apple Circus Band playing the iconic songs of yesteryear.

The Park - Paintings by Erik Benson - Arsenal Gallery
Through June 20, 2013 - New York

Erik Benson's new series of paintings, created with thousands of shapes hand-cut from dried sheets of acrylic paint, depict colorful but eerily abandoned playgrounds in stark urban landscapes. The Park expands on Benson's interest in playgrounds, particularly in the play structures' boldly unnatural and manmade coloring. The jungle gyms appear to sit on top of the surface rather than integrating with the landscape -- a metaphor for his own painting techniques. These exquisite compositions of urban landscape will be exhibited in collaboration with Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art LLC.

Lenore Lim - Calado - Tally Beck Contemporary
Through June 21, 2013 - New York

For many artists, the print is an auxiliary artistic medium. Printmaking is the technique that permits multiple editions of a painting, drawing or collage -- substitutions for the original.

Although the process is often laborious and challenging, printmaking is Lim's primary medium, and she employs it to produce original, personal works of art.

'Classification Bouillabaisse' Exhibition - Ana Cristea Gallery
Through June 22, 2013 - New York

Ana Cristea Gallery is pleased to present “Classification Bouillabaisse,” a group exhibition that brings together the diverse and accomplished work of three artists: Razvan Boar, George Little and James Viscardi. Collectively the works on view question the need for a rigidly defined aesthetic classification within the post-historical present. Our ability to perceive, interpret and categorize depends upon the context of the work itself, as well as the circumstances of its presentation. We are forced to reconsider and approach from a new vantage point. Razvan Boar’s new body of work brings his accomplished drawing practice into the realm of painting. Alternating between hyper-realistic representations of the human body and decomposed images of body parts which remain barely decipherable in form, his works embrace a newly minimal approach highlighting empty canvas space and isolated symbols. George Little’s work exhibits carefully constructed layers that reveal themes and motifs referencing an underbelly of culture surrounding food, dining and the service industry. His canvases unfold into brightly colored locales where presentation, transparency and perception collide. James Viscardi describes his practice as an act of cannibalism which is central to a contemporary spirit working within this current post-historical moment. The present of his canvases is co-opted from recycled fragments of a historical narrative.

Exhibition: SANA MUSASAMA: My Journey - Clay Art Center
Through June 22, 2013 - Port Chester

Clay Art Center is proud to present "SANA MUSASAMA: My Journey," a solo exhibition that combines art, social justice advocacy, and community arts outreach with New York artist and global citizen, Sana Musasama. The exhibition, which features ceramic sculpture and installation inspired from Musasama's travels around the world, will be on exhibit May 18-June 22, 2013, with an opening reception on Saturday, May 18, from 6-8pm. In conjunction, the artist will be an artist in residence at Clay Art Center for the duration of the exhibit, and Clay Art Center has initiated a string of community arts outreach events entitled, Inspire, Commit, Act... Admission to Clay Art Center is free. In her twenties, when she began traveling, Sana Musasama realized that clay existed all over the world. After her education in the public school system in New York, she felt limited, locked in, and undereducated. Traveling became her way of relearning the world and its inhabitants. Her work is informed by history, women's studies, culture, and her journals of global citizenship. "My Journey," an exhibition of large scale sculpture and installation, will speak of those experiences, from the "Maple Tree" series about the abolitionist movement involved with indigenous Americans, African indentured servants, and Dutch colonialists, and "The Unspeakable" series, an inquiry into the nature of violence and healing in women's lives, to her current work, "The UnKnown/UnNamed" series, which focuses on honoring the lives of those lost to war and genocide. Sana has spent the past 5 years working and traveling in Cambodia. It is there that she found herself in the killing fields, walking on fragments of souls that once were. Sana Musasama's work is grounded in the ceremonies of living. It guards their integrity and memory, and acts as a reliquary of historic events and her personal narratives. In her inquiry into the world, she sought to understand the human landscape. This transformed Sana and her approach to clay. There is no dichotomy between her life and her work, as her extensive traveling has made her relearn seeing. Her mission speaks of a global citizen who walks through the artwork heart first. Inspire, Commit, Act?: Community Events with Sana Musasama. For the duration of the exhibition, Sana will be an Artist in Residence at Clay Art Center, acting as an advocate for her work in the exhibition and the social justice issues it invokes. While in residence, she will also be working on a new body of work. As part of her residency at CAC, Sana will have the opportunity to work with Latino and African-American youth of Westchester County, NY, especially young women, and will be a visual presence for
