Penny, Anne and I went to two art openings on Thursday night!
The first was at SALT Quarters, a venue with ties to Syracuse University. You ask to use the facility for short duration art exhibitions and they give you the key. Here is the link to their Facebook like page.
It is located at 115 Otisco Street in Syracuse, NY.
Current key holder and artist Kathryn Petrillo has curated a two- week show of five artists:
Kathy Gaulin Donovan
Chris Wayne Rosier
Call (315) 443-0320 or visit www.saltquarters.com to view the art. It will be on display until November 30, 2015.
The second art exhibition is at the Roji Tea Lounge, 108 E. Washington Street, Syracuse. Here is the link to their Facebook page.
The artist exhibiting, Niki Dellios, is a shining star. Timing changed her life – she was exhibiting paintings at the Syracuse Tech Garden when the art director from the movie Adult World (filmed in Syracuse) spotted the art and asked her to do a commissioned work for the movie. She received film cred plus her very own IMDb page!
This show is up a bit longer – through December 2015. Call (315) 428-0844 for their hours of operation.
I have to say, you will love all the sparkly bits. Niki uses acrylic glosses, resins and glitter in her work. They are a lot shinier in person.
