Markings of Time and Place - Edgewood Gallery

The best little gallery in Syracuse. No, I said in Syracuse. Abbott's is the best little gallery just outside Syracuse. The Edgewood Gallery is, as my late friend and mentor George Welch explained, an intimate space.

Intimate perhaps, but Cheryl and Doug have a long history of presenting the best artists in the Central New York area. Tonight was the opening reception for their current show, "Markings of Time and Space". Deb and I popped in quick, but the place was packed so we didn't stay long.

As I have stated here before, I am not an art critic. I'll leave that to others, or better yet, stop by the show yourself and you decide what you like.

This exhibition features three popular artists currently working in the Syracuse area. Amy Bartell, Paul Molesky and Dan Bacich.

Amy Bartell is showing acrylic mixed media paintings examining the topography of time and ever changing horizon.

Paul Molesky - Sculptural and functional stonewear ceramics finished with clay slip and shino glazes.

Dan Bacich - Mixed media box assemblages combining fragments that invoke a narrative.

I enjoyed the show. I think you will too. Markings of Time and Space runs through Febrary 19. Edgewood Gallery is located at 216 Tecumseh Rd in Syracuse. They are open Tuesday - Friday 9:30 - 6:00 and Saturday 10:00 - 2:00. For more information call 315-445-8111.

* Deb and I will be showing at the Edgewood Gallery in June. I will post more on this as we draw nearer.
