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.

Artist Talk with Matt Herron

March 25, 20157:00 pmto9:00 pm

Matt Herron 2013

“As a photographer, I walked backwards for five days, watching events unfold through my camera lenses. This was a march for ordinary people, not the leaders. Northern activists and intellectuals mixed easily with people from rural Alabama. In this spirit, I photographed two women throughout the march: Iris Jones, a housewife from suburban Philadelphia, and Doris Wilson, a teenage mother from Selma. At night we slept on the ground in tents that magically appeared and ate food prepared by armies of volunteers working anonymously to support the march.” -Matt Herron

Herron’s photographs have appeared in virtually every major picture magazine in the world. Based in Mississippi in the early 60’s, he covered the Civil Rights struggle for Life, Look, Time, Newsweek, and the Saturday Evening Post, as well as providing pictures for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). His photographs are in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House, the Smithsonian Institution, the High Museum of Art, and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

Legend

March 27, 20157:30 pmto9:30 pm

LEGEND - Directed by Ryan Hope Travis

A Live Performance of Legend presented by the Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company. Time is almost up for this troupe of actors. They are less than 24 hours away from opening night, and they don’t even have a script. With the director no where to be found, these four women are forced to bind together and create a play. Featuring the poetry of Jackie Warren-Moore, Micere Mugo, Sonia Sanchez, and Maya Angelou, the play explores issues of redemption, revolution, and collective activism in the African American community. In the spirit of the Selma to Montgomery March, “Legend” charges our communities to use unity and compassion to spark social change.

Featuring performances by Amber Collins, Matellah, Joycelyn Hutton and Marissa Lewis.

$10 – or pay what you can – at the door.
