The closing of Delavan Art Gallery on the Near West Side in May was a blow to the Syracuse arts community, but former Delavan Gallery Manager Caroline Szozda-McGowan will give life back to the space with the opening of Szozda Gallery, an 800 square foot showcase and sales venue for fine art created by area artists.
The gallery first offers a group show from Nov. 10 to 28, with an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday Nov. 12. The show features local artists Lauren Bristol, Phil Parsons and James Skvarch, among others.
In December, Szozda Gallery presents a second group show, opening Dec. 1 with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m Dec. 3.
Szozda Gallery is located at 501 West Fayette St. Admission is free and off-street parking is available. Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call the gallery at 579-2805.
