They're back. After a great time starting ConTemporary Gallery together in the summer of 2008, Roslyn Esperon and Courtney Rile, are happy to announce their next curatorial project for the summer and fall of 2009. Celebrate on Thursday, June 25 from 5-8 p.m. the opening of Price Check: Syracuse, their next curatorial project opening at Delavan Art Gallery, in Syracuse.
Price Check: Syracuse is an interactive curatorial examination of the variations of the visual art market based upon geographic proximity to a major art center. The exhibition focuses on the state of New York, where the art market ranges vastly from the urban art hub of New York City to the neighboring art town of Beacon or more distinctly, to our own post-industrial city of Syracuse. In investigating how the price of artwork directly relates to the geographic location of its sale, Price Check invites you to participate in the pricing of artwork and represent the regional visual art market.
A traveling exhibition, Price Check: Syracuse features the work of eight artists from a combination of Syracuse, Beacon and New York City: Michael Barletta * Carol Flaitz * Carla Goldberg * Anne Novado-Cappucccilli * Jason Verone * Fred Wellner * Laura Wellner * Leah Wolff
The art selected for the show is centered around an abstract, organic, ephemeral aesthetic and includes a range of media such as watercolor, painting, mixed media and digital art.
Price Check: Syracuse will close on Saturday, July 11 with a series of special events. Stop by between noon to 3 p.m. to chat with us and perhaps some of the artists. Or join the curators for the closing reception at 3 p.m., followed by a Price Check discussion from 4 to 5 p.m., at which point the ladies will unveil the results of the bidding and discuss the results of the first phase of the project.
