Th3 in the STARS (Post-Standard)

"Th3 Expands Syracuse Culture"
Sunday, April 15, 2007


Visual arts communities across the country, from Louisville, Ky., to Portland, Ore., know there's strength in numbers. Galleries in big cities and small towns throw open their doors on a common evening, inviting patrons to drop by for a quick look or a leisurely visit. It's convenient for patrons, creates a nice stir in the arts community and brings established and new viewers into the galleries.

Thanks to some committed organizers from the Delavan Art Gallery (Director Bill Delavan and Gallery Coordinator Courtney Rile) and the Everson Museum of Art (Development Director Helen Dewey and communi- cations associate Sarah Tiedemann), Syracuse now hosts a similar citywide arts open, known as Th3, 5 to 8 p.m. each third Thursday of the month, with the exceptions of January, July, August and December.

Fifteen galleries sprawling between Syracuse University and the Delavan Art Gallery participate in Th3; but it's definitely a work in progress, as I recently found out by taking in a brief sampling of the March rendition.

Delavan Art Gallery April Th3 Artists In Attendance

The following artists will be in attendance at Delavan Art Gallery during this coming Th3.

A. Brooks Decker
For A. Brooks Decker, the title "Art Across Generations" holds a particular relevance. This exhibit includes both her work and the work of her daughter, Jessica Taylor. Decker writes, "If there has been one constant force in my Life... it has been art." Growing up in a small town on Long Island, Decker watched her fisherman father paint the sea while her mother kept a flower garden. These memories are now entwined in the subject matter of her paintings in a style she calls "romantic realism." Also included in this show are paintings of garden doors inspired by her daughter's photographs. Decker is well known in the region for participating in many local group exhibits and for owning and managing the former Limestone Art Gallery in Fayetteville for ten years.

Vivian Geiger
Vivian Geiger is a widely respected photographer who now lives in the area of Liverpool, NY. For this exhibit she is showcasing a new series of abstracts and a new technique of using pastels on photographs. Geiger is an expert on oil coloring on photographs and was hired to write a "how-to" book and act as a consultant on the subject. She is a life member of the Professional Photographers of America (P.P.A.), and was selected as an instructor in their "Super Monday" program, a position that the President of the P.P.A. states is intended for the most legendary photographers in the industry. Her resume includes traveling and lecturing to professional photographers internationally as well as teaching classes at Winona School, N. Carolina University, the Rochester Institute and Syracuse University, among others. Geiger has received the Post-Standard Achievement Award in the Arts.

Students from the classes of Stacy Griffin, Kelly Moser and Simone Montgomery have the chance to see their work in a professional setting and to sell the work to raise money for themselves as burgeoning artists and for school art supplies. A special reception will be held for students on Friday, April 20, from 4 - 6 PM, featuring a performance by Seymour Guitar Ensemble. The ensemble consists of student guitar players in the 4th and 5th grades and is spearheaded by Seymour’s music teacher, Kevin Dorsey. The public is encouraged to attend this reception.

Joint Exhibition of Classic Film Posters

Maestro Silvano Campeggi's original designs of classic film posters from Hollywood's Golden Era

Gallery and Silent Auction open from 5:00 pm
Reception with the artist at 8pm
Free admission /Open to the public
Refreshments will be served



The ThINC Gallery will be showing specifically the Campeggi work related to the film classic, Ben Hur.

The Everson Museum is showing pieces from what is known as his "transition" period, in the early '70s, after his main work with Hollywood came to an end. Television was starting to replace moviegoing. Movie studios were also turning to different styles of design as computers literally entered the picture. Campeggi was then released by the studios and felt very lost. He and his family used to vacation in the island of Elba, where he moved to at that time and during those days, his work was influenced by the nature around him, the colorings, shapes and sandy landscapes... He was trying to redefine himself as an artist. He had a show of this work and some of his major critics questioned the new style rather severely.

Eventually, this evolved into what Campeggi is doing today, which somehow
combines styles and themes from his life-long career. The Redhouse will be showing his more contemporary work.
