The Syracuse University Art Galleries is holding an open reception and panel discussion for its exhibition “Run and Tell That! New Work from New York.” A moderated panel discussion with the artists in the exhibition will take place Thursday, Nov. 11, from 3-5 p.m. in Shemin Auditorium of the Shaffer Art Building, adjacent to the SUArt Galleries. Topics will include the figure in contemporary painting, strategies for engaging the viewer, and choices between making abstract or representational imagery. A gallery reception will follow from 5-7 p.m in SUArt Galleries in the Shaffer Art Building.

“Run and Tell That! New Work from New York” presents recent and new work by 21 young New York City artists. Included in the exhibition’s wide array of media are several installation pieces created specifically for the SUArt Galleries. Co-curated by SU alumnus Eric Gleason ‘05, sales director at Marlborough Chelsea, and David Prince, associate director at the SUArt Galleries, the show illustrates conceptual and aesthetic trends in contemporary art.

Artists include Kamrooz Aram, Steven Charles, Inka Essenhigh, Aaron Johnson, Liz Markus, Tom Sanford, Ryan Schneider and Aya Uekawa, who use personal experience, art history, abstraction and social commentary to keep the medium fresh and relevant. Sculpture pieces are designed by Robert Lazzarini, Diana Al-Hadid, Will Ryman and Ethan Greenbaum.

The SUArt Galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Thursday from 11 a.m.- 8 p.m. It is closed on Monday. For more information, you may contact the SUArt Galleries at 443-4097, or by email at
