In the first years of the 20th century Gustav Stickley and his home on Columbus Avenue, on Syracuse’s Eastside, was the center of the American Arts and Craft Movement – not just for Central New York, but for the nation. Through example in furniture and architecture, and by publication of The Craftsman magazine, Stickley and his associates played a major role shaping American houses, and and equally how Americans viewed the relationship between art and life.

This talk will emphasize Stickley’s career in Syracuse, and the role played in local arts by architects Lamont Warner, Clarence S. Congdon, Ward Wellington Ward and others, as well as ceramicist Adelaide Alsop Robineau and stained glass artist Henry Keck. The talk coincides with the current exhibition at the Everson Museum of Art, An American Look: Fashion, Decorative Arts & Gustav Stickley
