Ignite the Spirit: 20 Women Artists @ The Tech Garden, Syracuse NY May 1 2014

One of Syracuse's most important venues for the visual arts! A key reason being the curators' commitment to showing local artists including many either just getting their start or breaking through into that more professional realm of exhibiting. Which has certainly been my case! Have taken part in a number of exhibits at The Galleries, as they are called, and always make a point to go see what there is to see.

Ellen Haffar, incredible drawing with so much depth to it ... If I heard correctly Ellen had been curator Kristina Starowitz's art teacher in high school, and I can see the influence.
