601 Tully
601 Tully is an artist-driven project that houses an international gallery, an artist residency program, free art workshops, a monthly poetry series, and much more. All of our art education, and ecology programs are offered free to the public and grow out of a partnership between university, city, and neighborhood entities. The building is a living sculpture where artists, community members, and scholars engage in the coproduction of new culture.

The 601 design team, led by Prof. and Artist Marion Wilson, existed within a Syracuse University course called “Social Sculpture: 601 Design/Build.” The building was an abandoned residence that had become a neighborhood drug hub. The college class (students from the School of Architecture, Visual and Performing Arts, Education, Creative Writing, ESF, and Fowler HS) was responsible for re-zoning, re-designing, re-building, and eventually sustaining the program. 601 Tully opened to the public in June 2011.

Aaron Williams
Slaying phone sales dragons by day and racking up future best screenplay Oscars by night, Aaron Williams is your worst nightmare. He's your best friend. He is the fox in your henhouse, the face in your locket and the psychotic nanny that's rocking your baby's cradle. He's a crumpled sheet of perfumed contradiction that you just can't put down.

But foremost, he is the brave guide ferrying you across the putrid river of offal that flows unabashedly from Hollywood's scared and diseased excretory system.

Tell me my friend, when you are knee deep in blood and guts, staring down the icy barrel of the next steaming pile of Jerry Bruckheimer guano, who do you want blazing your trail? Patch Adams or Colonel Nathan Jessup? Exactly. Can you, indeed, handle the truth?

Abisay Puentes
Abisay Puentes, a Cuban artist making his paintings transcend the two-dimensional space by creating sound to his paintings. The format of that sound is a composed symphonic piece for each painting. This way people can hear his painting and see his music. His synesthetic art aims to captivate the senses of the public through his artistic symbolism.

ACME Mystery Company
Based out of Syracuse, New York, ACME provides interactive comedies in a mystery format, usually in conjunction with a dinner. Our shows play on two levels: they are extremely funny and fun to watch but there also is a very real mystery which each audience member gets the chance to solve. At every seat is a program telling you where you are, when you are, and who you are. It also tells you about the characters you will be meeting. Additionally, each table is given a Clue and encouraged to exchange this information with other tables in an effort to put together the most comprehensive list so as to better solve the mystery.

We write all of our own material to ensure quality and have been entertaining audiences throughout the Northeast since 1997. We've given over 1000 performances in venues big and small from mansions to restaurants, hotels to local halls. We entertain at regular venues, semi-regular venues, annual events, and special occasions

Adam Verone
Yankee Blood is an indie/pop band based out of Nashville, TN. Born in 2015 as a passion project between Kelly Ruth (singer-songwriter, bassist), James Karp (guitar, vocals), Adam Verone (drums) and Lizzy Herder (synths, vocals) these northern transplants found each other after moving south. They've come together to create a warm, vibrant indie-pop confection of catchy oldies-inspired melodies laced with lyrics of love both lost and found and marry it with eccentric guitar lines, dense vocal harmonies, swelling synth pads and drum patches. Currently set to release their debut EP in the fall 2015.

Adirondack Art & Framing
Adirondack Art was established in 1997 by owner Brian Herkel. With a background in fine art, and experience in picture framing, he opened the frame shop and art gallery with an emphasis on regional nature and wildlife art. Originally located in Mapledale Plaza in Barneveld, NY for ten years, the shop was relocated to a larger, custom renovated space at 8211 State Route 12 in 2007. Our yellow lab Maggie joined the staff the same year and is the official greeter most days.

Custom picture framing remains the main focus of our business, producing work for individuals, artists, and commercial clients. We are proud to have been chosen to frame work for Munson Williams Proctor School of Art Gallery, Stanley Theater, View Art Center of Old Forge, the Oneida Indian Nation Education Center, Sculpture Space, the Adirondack League Club, and many other local businesses and organizations.

In addition to picture framing, Adirondack Art also offers a selection of local and regional prints and paintings, books, calendars, stationery items, and pottery and jewelry by local crafters.

Alexander Technique Syracuse
We offer educational opportunities for the artist to explore the nature of habit as it relates to mindfulness and balance in the practice of artistic endeavors. Private, semi-private and group classes are available. Lessons are individually tailored. Our interest lies is creating an environment to explore the connections between how we think and how we move. There are no right or wrong answers, only experiments.

How you move affects both the conceptual process and the performance of artistic practices, such as how one sits at the keyboard , how one coordinates eyes with hands, and how one whispers on stage. Learning the Alexander Technique can include:
* relearning basic movements such as sitting, standing, walking, bending, speaking and singing.
* enhancing awareness and unraveling excess tension while you lie on a bodywork table.
* refining activities you choose, such as, playing an instrument, golfing, working at a keyboard, text messaging, public speaking, dancing,
acting, or horseback riding.

Private lessons offer an exceptional experience in mind and body wholeness.
To learn first-hand, it is best to take private or semi-private lessons. Lessons are 45 minutes in length. For most of this time, the focus will be on
everyday movements, especially sitting and standing. During a lesson, students
will also participate in semi-supine table work by observing how directly their
thinking affects their entire neuromuscular experience.

The Alexander Technique of Syracuse studio is in the Delavan Center, 509 West Fayette St, Suite 249, Syracuse, New York.
