The Louise & Bernard Palitz Gallery believes we must do all we can to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community in order to continue to serve as a safe haven for our staff, visitors, and artwork alike.

In order to protect the well-being of our staff and visitors, and following guidance from local, state, and federal authorities regarding measures that best promote public health, the Palitz Gallery will temporarily close to the public.

We will suspend access the galleries, including our main campus venue, the Syracuse University Art Galleries, beginning at 5 pm, Monday March 16. The facilities will remain closed through Monday, March 30, 2020, at the earliest.
We will continue to monitor developments with COVID-19 and regularly reassess this temporary closure.

“Presuppose that beyond this visible world, there is an invisible world striving to manifest, and it is our job to uncover it.” – Scott D. Miller

The Radical Collage: Afrosurrealism and the Repurposed Fabrication of Black Bodies is a political exhibition, by nature, seeking to reinvest itself within the uncanny depictions of Black bodies residing in distant pasts and presents via the cultural aesthetic and liberatory framework of Afrosurrealism.

Steered to cultivate an alternative perspective, the exhibition will explore notions of breaching consciousness via its contextualization within collage. Mirroring the selected artists, Ivan Forde and Suné Woods the curation of the exhibition utilizes a variety of methods and material which contribute to the inter-sectional navigation of narrative within sociopolitical issues surrounding the reality of being a Black body residing within our current society. Specifically focusing on the endured experiences and sensibilities of Black bodies, how do we cope with the trauma(s) induced by the modernization of the Black American? Is it through newfound skill at creating an entirely different world organically connected to the one in which we reside . . . or via the Black aesthetic in its actual contemporary lived life?

Dear Students, Faculty, Staff, and friends of Syracuse University,

We are writing to let you know that the CMAC - Coalition of Museum and Art Centers at Syracuse University stands with our students, and against bias and hate speech in all forms. We have institutionalized those goals in our strategic plan and state:

We believe that we live in a society where all individuals and all artists do not yet have the same opportunities. In order to address those inequalities, it will be the goal of the organizations within CMAC to equally represent and support artists of color, LGBTQ artists, artists with disabilities, and any other marginalized groups in
all our programs.

The CMAC facilities are safe spaces for everyone to share ideas, examine differences, and find common ground. We know that there are better days ahead, so please know that your friends in the arts stand by you as we work to make our world a better place.

On view through April 11, CORPUS: Juan Juarez.
Corpus examines the themes of decay and nothingness through a multi-media installation. A neglected residence becomes a symbolic metaphor for the gradual decay of the body and mind over time. While videos and photographs portray the inability to capture nothingness by mapping its ambiguous state through demarcation and indexing. Both themes explore the human desire to leave tangible remains, which creates the ambiance of physical existence.

The year 2018 marks 145 years of collecting artwork and objects of cultural heritage at Syracuse University. Over this time, the university has built a thriving, robust, and encyclopedic art collection of over 45,000 objects. The beginnings of the collection was quite similar to many other university collections or museums in the United States. In 1873, Dr. George Fisk Comfort, first dean of the College of Fine Arts, and founder of both the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Everson Museum of Art, secured several thousand dollars for the purchase of a series of plaster casts to be utilized as study objects by the university community. He also donated hundreds of prints and photographs acquired from his European travels. These works were foundational to the permanent collection as it has evolved into what it is today–both a traditional art gallery, as well as a teaching museum for students and faculty. With a current primary collecting focus on twentieth-century American art, especially the acquisition of contemporary graphic arts and works on paper, the collection has expanded to include diverse viewpoints that serve as objects of appreciation, research, and dialogue for students, faculty, alumni and the greater arts community in Syracuse, New York City and beyond.

The works on display in this exhibition highlight just a small portion of the growth that the permanent art collection has made over the past five years. Artwork included represents both gifts to the collection as well as purchases made by the curatorial staff that enhance the permanent collection and reflect the core principles of SUArt’s mission to collect, preserve, research and exhibit objects. As a result, these artifacts represent the greater art and cultural world, and are utilized not just for enjoyment as a visually pleasing object, but to help the Syracuse University Art Galleries achieve their vision to present and expose world-class arts to our community in order to spark enjoyment, interpretation and dialogue from visitors.

Gallery Hours:
Monday – Friday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
Saturday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

An important gift to the Syracuse University permanent art collection came in 2017 from Rona and Martin Schneider of Brooklyn, New York. Rona, a well-known print dealer and member of the IFPDA - International Fine Print Dealers Association, specialized in late 19th and early 20th century American and European prints especially those made as part of the #EtchingRevival.

An important gift to the Syracuse University permanent art collection came in 2017 from Rona and Martin Schneider of Brooklyn, New York. Rona, a well-known print dealer and member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association, specialized in late 19th and early 20th century American and European prints especially those made as part of the “Etching Revival.” In recognition of this substantial gift, we are displaying a small number of works by American and European artists from the Schneider Collection that are fairly representative of the larger Schneider Collection.

This exhibition highlights some of the important pieces in the collection including work by members of the New York Etching club that was founded in 1877. At their first meeting, Robert Swain Gifford made an etching that was printed by Leroy Milton Yale. An impression from that plate is in the exhibition. Over the next 20 years, members of the club produced thousands of prints, many of which were displayed in exhibitions held in New York City at the National Academy of Design, in Chicago at the World’s Fairs and the Art Institute, and in Europe at different venues. The Etching Club helped to drive interest in the United States over the next few decades and other cities, including Philadelphia, Boston, Cincinnati, and Chicago. By the end of 1932, print clubs and art societies could be found across the country. In Europe and America both, print organizations led to annual exhibitions of printed art and books that included original works of art. In 1879, Sylvester Rosa Koehler began the American Art Review and published original prints as part of the magazine. The “Works of the American Etchers” became a feature of the magazine and a large number of the prints in this exhibition came from that publication.
