Left Hand Path is the title of the latest art exhibition hanging on the walls of Apostrophe’s Art Gallery, 1100 Oak Street in Syracuse, New York. Glendon Allen has curated an exhibition that includes ten artists –

Glendon Allen~ Curator
It is a family affair. Both Glendon and his brother Dylan are graduates of Syracuse University. Their mom, Sherry Spann Allen, is a recently retired art teacher, as well as a nationally recognized abstract artist. Their dad, Peter Allen, is a successful local graphic artist, painter and musician. Alice, Dylan’s daughter, poses here with her artwork on the wall as well. (She said it was a giraffe!)
Left hand path is a term to describe the religious practice of dark magic. (I Googled it.) In this case, the artists are aligning with the feeling of being placed in the category of outsider. Their emotions play a significant role in the production of their artwork. Discord is at the center of this vibration, although the work here is a combination of action strokes and calm precision. A sort of beautiful aesthetic meets the doom and gloom of the future kind of thing.
The above prints were available for immediate sale, the rest can be purchased once the show comes down next week. Apostrophe’s is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays and by appointment.
