ArtRage: The Norton Putter Gallery

505 Hawley Avenue Syracuse, NY

ArtRage Gallery has ended it’s 6th exhibition season and will be closed until September 6th. See you then!

ArtRage is no ordinary gallery.

We are committed to breaking down the art world’s boundaries about who is welcome. We believe that everyone has the right to art and that art is essential to building an open, just world. Our vision for change is one that creates a community of open-minded, tolerant individuals with an appreciation for the inclusion of art in everyday life. We offer the community an experience that encourages the breakdown of boundaries so that people can see themselves in the work and then in one another. We exhibit art that cultivates critical thinking skills; leading to question the power structures that exist in our society and to imagine other ways of life.

That, we believe, is the seed of a movement for cultural and social change.

Opening Reception Saturday, September 6th from 7-9pm

G.C.C. is the first juried exhibition hosted by the ArtRage Gallery! The submission process was open to all contemporary artists, including Central New York artists, who are creating work that fits the ArtRage mission to inspire resistance, promote social awareness, support social justice, challenge preconceptions, and encourage cultural change.   The result is an exhibition of the work of 24 artists, one-third of whom are from Central New York, that reveals their diverse talent and demonstrates the range of social and environmental issues that concern many of today’s artists. The exhibition had three jurors: Mary Murray, the curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Munson-Williams Proctor Arts Institute; Debora Ryan, an independent curator whose more than two decades of museum experience include 13 years as the curator at the Everson Museum of Art; and Rose Viviano, ArtRage Gallery’s curator and director.

Solarize Syracuse Community Workshop

September 9, 20147:00 pmto9:00 pm

Solarize is a grassroots solar movement that is spreading across the US to make solar power more affordable and more accessible than ever. Solarize Syracuse is a grassroots community solar initiative for the City of Syracuse and the Towns of DeWitt, Manlius and Onondaga. The workshop will cover how solar energy works, how you can save money with a bulk purchasing program. Local community solar experts will answer your questions to help you decide whether solar energy is right for your home or business and explain how to take advantage of state and federal tax credits, subsidies and low-interest financing available for reducing your energy use and producing your own electricity. During the workshop, you can enroll to have your home or business assessed for free by a partnering solar installer. The program is available for both residential and commercial buildings, with both direct purchase and leasing options. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Solarize Syracuse is organized by Alliance for a Green Economy, Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board, Frack Action, Greening USA, New York Interfaith Power and Light, Peace Action CNY, and the Syracuse Peace Council. Together, we are taking collective action to reduce the use of fossil fuels and nuclear power in our communities and to shift our region to clean, sustainable energy.

Free and open to the Public
