ArtRage: The Norton Putter Gallery

505 Hawley Avenue Syracuse, NY

WELCOME! HOURS: W, Th, F 2-7pm & Sat 12-4pm

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.

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.
