The Gallery of Central New York, owned and operated by Jennifer Schutzendorf ’90, will present its Third Annual “WISH” show beginning this Saturday, December 5 through the end of the calendar year. The show features collectible small works suitable for holiday gift giving. Ms. Schutzendorf describes her inspiration for the show: “I’ve had the privilege of experiencing many give & receive artwork through the gallery. Each painting is a treasure in itself, but also a gift that supports the arts, one that increases in value, can be passed from generation to generation and promises to make a personal impact. ” The Gallery of Central New York specializes in realism & impressionism by Central New York’s most collectible contemporary artists & features local scenes and landscapes.
Ms. Schutzendorf graduated from Boston College’s Carroll School of Management in 1990 and worked in marketing and customer relations for more than ten years before returning to school for a Fine Arts degree (The Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C.). Since moving back to Central New York a few years ago, she took over her Mom’s business – The Gallery of Central New York – and describes the experience as “a dream job to match my two life-long interests.”
“WISH” includes small works by the gallery’s 18 artists, and features the work of Nicole Gangi this year. Open House: Saturday, December 5 from 10 AM – 6 PM. On-line sales will begin on Sunday, December 6.
