Delavan Art Gallery is pleased to present the fifth annual exhibition and fundraiser of art by students in three Syracuse School District Elementary Schools: Blodgett, Seymour Magnet and Solace. Each year, students from the classes of Stacy Griffin, Kristin Dugger, Kelly Moser-Vogler, Paul Bova and Simone Montgomery have the chance to see their work displayed and sold in a professional setting to raise money for themselves as burgeoning artists and for school art supplies. Donations of art supplies are also encouraged and can be dropped off at the gallery at any point during the exhibition. A special reception will be held during Th3, The Third Thursday, on March 20 from 5 - 8 p.m. For those not able to attend the reception, the gallery will be open to the public on Friday, March 21 from Noon - 6 p.m. and by appointment during business hours, Tuesday through Friday, of the following week, ending March 28, 2008. To make an appointment, please call the gallery at (315) 425-7500.

Delavan Art Gallery is a 3,800 square foot showcase and sales venue for fine art created by area artists. Conveniently located downtown at 501 West Fayette Street in Syracuse, the gallery is free and open to the public. Off-street parking is available and the gallery is handicapped accessible.

Effective February 23, 2008, Delavan Art Gallery is taking a break from the normal exhibition schedule, opening only for Th3 each month and for special events such as this. The gallery is scheduled to reopen with regular programming for its Five Year Anniversary in September of 2008. For more information visit
