“PEOPLE PLACES AND THINGS” is the title of the current exhibition at Edgewood Gallery (216 Tecumseh Road, Syracuse, NY 13224). I attended the art reception tonight.
The featured artists are David Gandino (people and places) and Joyce Backus (things).
Joyce Backus is an artist, children’s book illustrator, jewelry designer and art teacher. She is a friend and former colleague. Here she is selling papier-mache glassware, mixed-media sculptures and handmade jewelry.
David Gandino is a photographer, writer and actor, having worked in several of the recent movies filmed here in Syracuse. His photographs reflect a life well-traveled with a few portraits sprinkled in.
It was such a joy getting back into the spirit of gallery hopping – so fun supporting my friend, having art and fashion related conversations with friends, and chatting with, and getting to know other artists and patrons in this inviting space.
Cheryl Chappell (above left) is the owner. She is the person to know if you need anything framed. She also books these exhibitions months and sometimes years in advance.
This show will be on display through August 11, 2023. If you noticed any red stickers on the art labels, it means those items have sold. Some of the art and merchandise is still available. For inquiries including hours operation, go to their website – edgewoodartandframe.com
