A Contemporary Art Gallery
Contemporary Gallery was a temporary contemporary art gallery that operated during June and July of 2008.
A 1,886 square foot former office space located at 230 Harrison Street in Downtown Syracuse next to Komachi Restaurant, across from the Syracuse Technology Garden and down the street from the Hotel Syracuse and the Everson Museum of Art.
There was one large room, a medium room, four small rooms, plus a hallway that was used as a room and a small space for showing video art. That was a lot of wall space!
Contemporary Gallery wishes to thank J.F. Real Estate for their support.
