staff reports 07/07/09
Th3 is a coalition of 24 popular Syracuse visual arts venues that offer free events and viewing opportunities during the evening of the third Thursday of every month, from 5 to 8 p.m. Maps, bus schedule and Th3 show listings at all Th3 locations.

Set the tone of your evening with personalized henna drawing by intuitive artist Suzanne Masters as you view her StoryCatchers at the Westcott Art Gallery. Hop over to the Delavan to see the Pen and Ink Drawings by Brian Butler. Then browse the Everson’s world collection of ceramics. It’s the perfect time for a trip down The Erie Canal Museum on a life size replica of an authentic canal boat. Hear Collen Kattau and Caroline Kim’s rock those beats and Jenny Terrero’s book reading at Artrage.

At each stop enter the Th3 drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to Scarab Body Arts Studio in Armory Square. Scarab Body Arts offers a wide variety of body, including Henna, Tattoos, Piercing, and Scarification. Not ready to leap into body modification? Get a relaxing massage or browse their unique handmade and custom designed jewelry pieces.
