    Palitz Gallery

    The second floor of Syracuse University’s Lubin House is home to the Louise and Bernard Palitz Gallery. Made possible through the generous support of alumna Louise Palitz and her husband, Bernard, the gallery hosts several art exhibits throughout the year, including two major public shows—one in the fall and one in the spring.

    The SUArt Galleries on campus, the generosity of private collectors, and the talents of alumni are what help to make the Palitz Gallery a popular feature of Lubin House.

    Curators of the Palitz Gallery exhibits are Domenic Iacono, (djiacono@syr.edu), director of SUArt Galleries and David Prince (dlprince@syr.edu), associate director/curator.

    You can contact the SUArt Galleries staff at 315.443.4097.

    Accidental, Elemental, Abstraction: Minna Citron

    June 14 - August 16, 2018

    Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
    CLOSED LABOR DAY WEEKEND
    Minna Citron is an important, potent figure in American art. Born in Newark, NJ in 1896, Citron was drawn to the Art Students League in New York City in 1928. She and fellow students Reginald Marsh and Isabel Bishop began investigating the city’s social issues, eventually becoming a part of the 14th Street School, a larger group of Social Realist artists. In 1940, Citron transitioned into abstraction, a move that better suited her inquisitive creativity. She continued to experiment with media and different forms of expression for the rest of her 63-year career as an artist.
