The region’s rich and varied art scene is expanding its limits

While the jewel in Buffalo’s cultural crown – the Albright-Knox Art Gallery – is closed until 2022 for a $165 million renovation and expansion that will add 30,000 square feet for displaying special exhibitions and the museum’s world-renowned art collection, Buffalo’s deep bench of eclectic art organizations should keep any art lover happily engaged.

Burchfield Penney Art Center

No art-enthusiast should miss the Burchfield Penney Art Center (BPAC), an 84,000 square-foot museum dedicated to the art of Western New York, including nationally notable artists, and the largest public collection by famed American watercolorist Charles Burchfield. Works from the collection are in continuous rotation, so no two visits are alike. On the second Fridays of every month, the BPAC hosts happy hours, performances, concerts, screenings, and other events.

Hallwalls

The Burchfield is just one of many exciting opportunities in a city known for its vibrant art community. Founded in 1974, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center continues to present art, media, and music that challenges and extends traditional boundaries. Hallwalls is located in a Gothic Revival church, renovated by singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco and renamed Babeville.

CEPA is a 44-year-old internationally recognized arts center focusing on photography and photo-related arts. Located in the historic Market Arcade Complex, the center is known for expanding the limits of image making. CEPA also operates Big Orbit Gallery, a multidisciplinary contemporary space on Buffalo’s burgeoning West Side, which features innovative art installations. In the same building as CEPA, Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center continues its 35-year legacy of innovation with films, video, and new media installations.

Thanks to its mission to provide affordable studio space, Buffalo Arts Studio is not only a first-rate gallery, but also a colony of working artists. Gallery visitors can view artists as they work. Every forth Friday, the gallery extends its hours for public artist receptions.

UB Anderson Gallery is housed in an elegantly remodeled former public school in the University Heights neighborhood. Originally established by David Anderson, son of noted New York gallerist Martha Jackson, it was later donated to the University at Buffalo (UB), along with a collection of 1,200 modernist works by noted artists. UB now operates it as a museum with changing exhibitions.

UB Art Gallery, on the university’s North Campus, mounts thought-provoking exhibitions by national artists. Further north, a scenic 30-minute drive from Buffalo takes you to the Castellani Museum on the campus of Niagara University near Niagara Falls, with its rotating collection of regional and national art, including works by Helen Frankenthaler, Georges Rouault, William DeKooning, Keith Haring, and Pablo Picasso.

Rivalry Projects

There’s also an evolving selection of smaller commercial and nonprofit art spaces to satisfy every taste, including Art Dialogue Gallery (traditional and modern), Benjaman Gallery (historical to contemporary), BICA (edgy contemporary), Starlight Studio (for artists with disabilities), tiny Box Gallery (experimental), Rivalry Projects (contemporary), El Museo (eclectic), Evolution (pop surrealism), Pine Apple Company (lowbrow).

(Buffalo is open for business! Please keep in mind that even if a business has reopened, their hours may have changed. It is best to call ahead or check the business website for accurate and complete information.)

ALBRIGHT-KNOX ELMWOOD AVENUE CAMPUS TEMPORARILY CLOSED

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has temporarily closed its Elmwood Avenue campus to begin the construction phase of its AK360 Campus Development and Expansion Project. As part of the project, the museum will construct a signature new building on the north side of its campus and renovate its current facilities.

Albright-Knox Northland, a new project space at 612 Northland Avenue in Buffalo, is now open. The new Buffalo AKG Art Museum is expected to open in Spring 2022 on the Elmwood Avenue campus.

Art Truck
The museum’s new Art Truck, a mobile center for hands-on artmaking, brings art activities, classes, and workshops for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of ability into the communities of Western New York. View upcoming Art Truck events here.

In her mural for 1330 Niagara Street, Buffalo-based artist Nicole Cherry combines her signature eye for color and pattern with imagery inspired by the building’s future occupant: a bicycle shop. Cherry, a citizen of the Cayuga nation, began painting murals inside family and friends’ homes when she was still in high school. Since graduating from Buffalo State College, Cherry has expanded her practice to create indoor and outdoor installations for numerous local institutions, including Undergrounds Coffee House and Roastery in Buffalo’s Historic Old First Ward neighborhood, and Elmwood Pet Supplies on Elmwood Avenue.

[description] =>

In summer 2016, Buffalo-based artist Daniel Galas completed a mural at 74 Jewett Avenue, the home of Koch Metal Spinning. Galas focused exclusively on the architecture within walking distance from his studio at the Buffalo Arts Studio in the Tri-Main Center, adjacent to the mural site. The location presents a series of sections that the artist used as framing devices, setting up a cadence that takes the viewer on a visual journey back and forth along Buffalo’s Main Street divide.

Buildings represented in the mural include the Elephant House at the Buffalo Zoo (300 Parkside Avenue), Highland Lodge #835 / Central Presbyterian Church Community Center (2456 Main Street), St. Mark’s Roman Catholic Church (401 Woodward Avenue), the Kensington Water Tower (667 Kensington Avenue), Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic Church (317 Leroy Avenue), the Pierce-Arrow Showroom (2421 Main Street), Bennett High School and All-High Stadium (2885 Main Street), and the Darwin D. Martin House (125 Jewett Avenue).

This mural has been made possible through the generous support of Bank of America. Additional support has been provided by Tri-Main Development LLC and Koch Metal Spinning Co, Inc.

Aakash Nihalani’s wall-based installations and free-standing sculptures playfully disrupt our perception of space with minimal means. These typically include geometric figures traced out with tape in the case of his murals and simple steel and aluminum shapes in the case of Balancing Act II and other sculptures. His work often seems designed to be photographed, and the increasingly commonplace translation of artworks into digital images becomes an integral part of the project’s overall aim to blur the distinction between two and three dimensions. In Balancing Act II, this approach to form is brought to bear on what appears to be a pile of blocks captured in a precarious moment of equilibrium.

[description] =>

The fragmentary silhouettes of local plants featured in Botanical Blueprint were inspired by the cyanotypes—contact prints on sun-sensitive paper—that Buffalo-born and Richmond-based artist Hillary Waters Fayle created in collaboration with visitors to the 25th anniversary edition of Garden Walk Buffalo in July 2019. Describing the project, Fayle has said,

“I want to salvage and revive our individual and collective connection to the natural world. . . . [using] found botanical and organic material . . . to symbolically bind nature and the human touch. Our connection to the land is so obvious in gardens, on a windowsill or a backyard or a farm, where plants nourish our bodies and souls. They connect us in a very tangible way to the land. . . . Plants are a marker of place, a connection to the land and to our past; native or invasive, the plants of our homes feel like old friends to us.”

CAE Gallery, the “biggest, little gallery” in Buffalo is located in North Buffalo. Usual business hours are Wednesday – Saturday from noon until 5:00PM. There will be extended hours until 7PM on Friday and Saturday through Christmas. Its proprietors, Jim and Mary Casion, have spent their adult lives collecting fine art prints and want to enable others to share the joy of owning and displaying fine art.

The gallery sells pieces representing over 75 artists: some well known masters (Dali, Renoir, Mattisse, VanGogh), some popular (Chagall, Christensen, Doolitle, Warhohl), some up-and-coming (Kef!,Shepard Fairey), and some just fun to have. All are wonderful to own! The inventory spans centuries of art from The Renaissance to modern day thus representing many genres of print making: engraving, etching, wood cuts, lithographs, and giclee.

Many of the prints are already beautifully framed and one “only needs a nail” to receive their full enjoyment.

Come in and see our collection and start (or add to) your own!

The students then completed the mural, with the assistance and guidance of Mizrachi.

This mural is part of the Public Art Public School Voices program, a collaborative educational program developed by the Albright-Knox and the Buffalo Center for Arts and Technology with support from the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.

The Freedom Wall was created by John Baker, Julia Bottoms-Douglas, Chuck Tingley, and Edreys Wajed in 2017.

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery Public Art Initiative, in collaboration with the Michigan Street African-American Heritage Corridor and neighborhood stakeholders, envisioned this mural as a way to celebrate our nation’s historic and ongoing struggles for political and social equality, including the formative and lasting contributions of local leaders to this cause. With support from the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA), the large concrete wall surrounding the NFTA’s Cold Spring Bus Maintenance Depot has been transformed into portraits of twenty-eight notable civil rights leaders from America’s past and present.

Stained glass artisan Jane Jacobson is highly respected for her commissioned work for corporate, residential and religious clients. With an education in art history and architecture, and advanced training in conservation at the renowned York Glaziers’ Trust in England, she is well suited for this field since glass requires it makers to have a keen sense of design and the technical skill to adequately address the structural concerns relating to elements such as windows, doors and skylights – integral components of architecture. Much of her designs entail working closely with clients and their architects and contractors. She names as her inspiration Tiffany, Wright and Mackintosh among other Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts Style visionaries. Jacobson views stained glass as a highly personal and poetic medium and accordingly describes it as “an orchestration of line, form, color, texture and light singing in harmony.” Her studio and showroom is located in the pastoral Parkside neighborhood that was laid out by Frederick Law Olmsted.

Renowned illustrator Philip Burke was commissioned by Rory Allen of ZOOM Copy approached him about paint the wall at 1212 Hertel Avenue. Rory and his backers, David Rust and Joel Feroleto had agreed that the subject should be the Goo Goo Dolls. This felt a bit like destiny, since Robby and Philip became good friends when Philip was invited into Music is Art in 2015. However, when Rory showed Philip a picture of the wall he would cover – peppered with windows and doors – Philip felt pretty sure it would be impossible. After sleeping on it for one night, though, he realized that his 40 year career in editorial illustration perfectly prepared him to work with such challenging restrictions. The design became an exciting puzzle to solve. But, ultimately, he was able to create a design, featuring Johnny Rzeznik and Robby Takac, that he fell in love with.

[description] =>

Overlooking a small green space adjacent to Burgio’s TV at 2303 Main Street, Augustina Droze’s mural builds on imagery she has previously explored in her studio-based painting practice. However, this is the first time that the artist has realized these ideas on a massive scale and as a public-oriented project. Based on the riotous coloring and innate artistry of bird and butterfly wings, Droze’s symmetrical patterning holds in tension the fragile balance between beauty and decay endemic to the natural world.

Over the past decade, Droze has realized several notable projects in Western New York—including Global Voices, created in cooperation with Buffalo Public School students for the corner of Grant Street and Auburn Avenue, and Ray of Light, honoring the life of Jerald (Dee Dee) Goldsmith in Masten Park. She has also worked extensively internationally, including on murals in Colombia and India, where Droze collaborated with local artists on projects addressing issues of equality, class, and gender, especially the challenges faced by young women.

Located in downtown Buffalo this mural, by Casey Milbrand, has become a favorite for locals looking to boost their hometown, and tourists looking for the perfect selfie when they mural hop around the Queen City. It depicts a 12-pointed sun rising behind a red and purple skyline against a graphic background of blue squares. At dead center is the word “BUFFALO” spelled out in bubble letters, complete with a heart in the center of the “O.” On the right, a red Buffalo heads out of the frame, as if on his way to explore the city.

Since the early 1960s, the steel sculptures of Larry Griffis, Jr. and other international artists have been residing in the woods, fields, and even ponds of Griffis Sculpture Park. The 450 acre Ashford Hollow park, located eight miles outside of Ellicottville, is not only a tremendous regional attraction, but holds the distinction of being one of America’s largest and oldest sculpture parks.
The park features over 250 large scale sculptures dispersed through miles of hiking trails. Each sculpture was placed with the natural setting in mind, creating a truly unique experience between art and nature.

The Griffis Sculpture Park is open from May 1 to October 31.

The Essex Street Arts Center, located on Essex Street on Buffalo’s West Side, was started by Larry W. Griffis Jr. in 1969 to serve as a place for artists to live, create, show their work and grow as creative individuals.

The Center was the first of its kind in Buffalo and was ahead of its time. The complex has many studios presently occupied by painters, musicians, sculptors, photographers, draftsman, filmmakers, and Big Orbit Gallery. The complex itself is a turn-of-the-century Ice House and is composed of four buildings.

The Essex Arts Center is part of the Ashford Hollow Foundation, which also operates Griffis Sculpture Park in Ashford Hollow, New York.

Buffalo, NY 14203
[description] =>

Shasti O’Leary Soudant’s new installation for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority’s Allen/Medical Campus Station comprises six stainless-steel sculptures. Collectively titled Gut Flora, the colorful, 11-foot-tall structures are inspired by bacteria and constructed of individually powder-coated steel sections. These sections are joined to make helical forms that extend from floor to ceiling, creating the illusion that they penetrate both surfaces.

The title Gut Flora refers to the recent scientific determination that beneficial bacteria are essential to good health and should be cultivated and encouraged. If we were to consider the tunnels, concourses, and stations of the City of Buffalo’s public transportation system as analogous to the circulatory and digestive systems of the human body, it is only natural that these are populated by forms related to biological flora and fauna.

The work was fabricated locally in conjunction with the Rigidized Metals Corporation in Buffalo, where Soudant is the organization’s inaugural artist-in-residence.

This project has been made possible through the support of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, with additional support provided by Colleagues, Friends, and Family in memory of John E. Friedlander, First Chief Executive Officer of Kaleida Health, 1998–2001.

Bunnie Reiss’s mural for the Hertel Avenue location of Joe’s Deli, entitled Magic Buffalo, features her signature interweaving of dreamlike imagery and mythological themes with delicate geometric tracery. Her work is influenced by her Polish and Russian heritage—especially Poland’s brightly colored folk art and the magical worlds of Russian fairytales—as well as her interest in unseen histories and our connection to animals and nature.

This mural has been made possible in part by the City of Buffalo and Council Member Joel Feroleto. Additional support has been provided by Joe’s Deli. AK Public Art mural projects are generously underwritten by the New Era Cap Foundation.

Buffalo, NY 14209
[description] =>

At the time of its completion, Metamorphosis #5 was the largest mural of Tavar Zawacki’s career and in the whole of Western New York. The vibrant pattern of vividly colored overlapping and interweaving forms—visible for blocks on this stretch of Main Street—is based on Zawacki’s signature artistic motif: the upward arrow.

At the age of 19, Zawacki—who had been casually interested in graffiti since his early teen years—bought a one-way plane ticket to Paris, driven to “rise above” his fears and dedicate himself completely to becoming a street artist. While he initially channeled this spirit into the tag ABOVE, Zawacki soon gravitated toward the upward arrow as a more universal expression, as he as explained, “of the powerful mentality to rise above fears, challenges, and anything holding you back from your goals. . . . everything is possible!” In the context of 1665 Main Street, this imagery and the idea of metamorphosis, or dynamic transformation, resonates with the resurgence of the greater Buffalo region and ongoing positive economic and cultural developments in the East Side neighborhoods nearby.

Felipe Pantone’s project for Town Ballroom covers the legendary concert venue’s Washington Street façade with the artist’s signature fusion of mesmerizing black-and-white patterns with bold prismatic forms and oversized fluorescent pixels. For the artist, these and similar elements serve as a set of endlessly reconfigurable building blocks that form the basis of his murals, sculptures, and paintings. While this approach to artmaking speaks to the endless cycles of duplication and transformation characteristic of digital art and culture, Pantone takes a long view of technological progress. He sees the computer modeling programs he uses in developing his designs as part of a continuum of image-making innovations alongside the pencil and oil paint of his studio practice and street art creations. From this vantage point, the artist is at heart an optimist about the positive potential of a digital future to make the world a more dynamic and connected place.

Buried in the layers of calligraphic forms at the center of this mural is its poetic title: Our Colors Make Us Beautiful. Artist Muhammad Zaman’s wide-ranging projects—from works on paper and paintings to this mural, his largest work to date—are all grounded in language. His compositions come together through an organic accumulation of thought fragments in the three languages that inform his identity: English, the language of his adopted home; Bengali, the language of his homeland; and Arabic, the language of his religion. Here, these messages peek through abstract passages of interwoven paint. In Our Colors Make Us Beautiful, Zaman explores the possibilities of verbal and visual expression to bring about mutual understanding and empathy among people from diverse walks of life.

Housed in a Circa 1950 Schoolhouse, the School House Gallery and adjacent woodworking studios provide you with a unique opportunity to see the craftmanship and working methods of four Roycroft Master Artisans – Thomas Pafk, Jack Bartlett, Ben Little, Jr. and Tom Harris. Between them they have over a century of experience in the field. The custom-made tables, mirrors, frames, lamps, bookcases and cabinetry they create in the Craftsman style are all done using traditional furniture techniques and methods. Following Roycroft founder Elbert Hubbard’s philosophy of making furniture “the very best we can,” their work reflects a dedication to the craft, respect for their materials and a love of the work of a skilled artisan. These artisans have done commissioned work for such notable clients as the Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy, Hammersmith Collections, Grove Park Inn and the National Parks Service.Hours vary seasonally, call to confirm.

Janice McDuffie, an artisan whose ceramic works are highly prized by Arts & Crafts collectors, recently relocated her longtime studio from the Roycroft Campus to her home, a residence built in the 1960s that was closely based on Frank Lloyd Wright’s published plans for his 1953 Usonian Exhibition House. Perhaps the most distinctive characteristic of McDuffie’s work is the extraordinary palette of glazes that she has developed and perfected after years of research and testing. With such names as Hamada Green, Copper Glaze and Shamo Yellow, these glazes range from earthy greens and blue/greens to a deep chocolate and light copper that evoke the coloration associated with hammered surfaces of early Roycroft copper work. Her vases, bowls, boxes and other objects include one-of-a-kind wheel thrown pieces and limited edition slip-cast pieces in high fired porcelain. You’ll also see beautiful hand-pressed tiles imprinted with floral imagery such as trilliums, poppies and roses.

The Roycroft Pottery Studio is open by appointment. Please call ahead.

Buffalo, NY 14216
[description] =>

In designing his mural for 1188 Hertel Avenue, São Paulo-based artist Kobra immersed himself in Western New York’s history. During his research, he found himself drawn to the legacy of one of the region’s most famous residents, Mark Twain, and his perhaps less well-known—but nonetheless significant—friendship with John T. Lewis.

Born poor, but a free African American, in northern Maryland in 1835 (the same year as Twain), Lewis taught himself to read and write while earning a modest living as a farmer and blacksmith. However, as tensions mounted in the years leading up to the Civil War, Lewis decided to move north, eventually settling in Elmira, New York, in 1864. There, he found work—first as a coachman and later as a farm manager—for Jervis Langdon, one of the town’s wealthiest residents and a leader of the area’s passionate abolitionist community. Twain also found himself drawn to Elmira by another member of the Langdon family: Jervis’s daughter, Olivia, whom he married in 1870. Even after the family moved to Hartford, Connecticut, they would frequently spend summers in Elmira, where Twain would go on to write major portions of some of his best-known works, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Life on the Mississippi, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, and The Prince and the Pauper. It was during one these trips, in August 1877, that Lewis’s and Twain’s stories intersected, after Lewis heroically managed to stop a runaway horse and buggy carrying Twain’s sister-in-law and niece from plunging off a cliff. From this inauspicious beginning, Lewis and Twain struck up an enduring friendship, which profoundly impacted Twain’s understanding of race and inequity in the United States during this time.

[description] =>

Logan Hicks’s mural for the Washington Street façade of 5 East Huron Street is based on photographs he took around one of the city’s signature sightlines: down Court Street toward Niagara Square and City Hall. He then translated this imagery into a number of stencils to be added in monochromatic layers to the wall. As with previous projects, Hicks chose to photograph the city late at night, a relatively quiet, peaceful time that allows him to “slow down and look at [the environment] with fresh eyes . . . [and] start to see the beauty in the mundane.”

Based in New York City, Hicks has been an active member of the street art and mural community since the early 2000s, completing large-scale projects for New York’s famed Houston Bowery wall and Wynwood Walls in Miami as well as in Baltimore, Istanbul, Tunisia, Paris, and beyond.

[description] =>

This mural celebrates nostalgia for cartoons, video games, and other imaginative preoccupations of youth. Its title, weego, comes from a pseudonym that the Buffalo-based artist Chuck Tingley and his painting partner, Cincinnati-based artist Matt Grote (a.k.a. OGRE), developed for their collaborative projects.

The imagery of this hot-air balloon fleet was inspired by the classic Nintendo, arcade, and puzzle-based board games of the artists’ childhoods. Tingley and Grote were particularly interested in how these play-based scenarios offered opportunities to escape to an alternate world, taking you away to a space that is more imaginative and immersive. As adults, they retrospectively realized the value of the childlike wonder spurred by these games and playing together. Their design is an attempt to reclaim humor, whimsy, and fun as having the same power to transform our everyday lives that great art does.

[description] =>

Formerly the location of the Copacabana Jazz Club, 751 Fillmore Avenue has sat vacant for over a decade Buffalo’s East Side. In 2016, the building’s new owners in partnership with the Broadway Fillmore Neighborhood Housing Services (BFNHS) and Fillmore District Common Council Member David Franczyk conceived of the idea for a mural that would incorporate the word “welcome” in the 13 languages BFNHS outreach identified as representative of this diverse neighborhood: Arabic, Bengali, Burmese, English, Farsi, French, German, Polish, Seneca, Spanish, Somali, Urdu, and Vietnamese. At the invitation of the BFNHS and a number of stakeholders in the neighborhood, the Albright-Knox Public Art Initiative and additional community representatives identified Philadelphia-based artists Keir Johnston and Ernel Martinez to help make this vision a reality.

Johnston and Martinez solicited community participation in both the design and execution of this mural through a series of public meetings and public paint days. The artists created the work using sheets of Polytab, a nonwoven material also known as “parachute cloth,” which was then patched together like wallpaper to create a seamless installation. The flexibility of the material made it possible to work on the mural indoors and allowed Johnston and Martinez to bring the artmaking process out into the community. Each section of Polytab was marked in advance by the artists with an outline of the design, a kind of “paint-by-numbers” format that allowed individuals of all skill levels to come together and participate on the project simultaneously.

[description] =>

The floral motifs artist Louise Jones incorporated into Wildflowers for Buffalo were inspired by the local landscape. Based on conversations with horticulturists and on her own research, Jones identified a number of plants native to the region as the basis for this mural; these include (from top left to bottom): red clover, coneflower (echinacea), burdock, chicory, Queen Anne’s lace, thistle, lamb’s quarters, swamp rose, and yarrow. The artist was drawn to these species not only for their connection to the Buffalo region but also for their role in herbal medicine traditions as aides for bringing about well-being. Later, she supplemented this selection of flora with what she called “special cultivated guests”: strawflowers and pussy willows that she encountered thriving on a farm in Eden. At 80 feet tall by 160 feet wide, Wildflowers for Buffalo is the largest mural of Jones’s career and the largest AK Public Art Initiative mural to date.

Wrocław, Poland–based artist Otecki (Wojciech Kołacz) has created an installation, Work and Play, that significantly adds to the cultural landscape of the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood, historically settled and established by many Polish families; today, Buffalo is home to the second largest Polish population in the United States. The location is directly across the street from Torn Space Theater, which is housed in the Adam Mickiewicz Library and Dramatic Circle.

Wojciech Kołacz, a.k.a. Otecki (Polish, born 1984), is an illustrator, printmaker, painter, and mural artist working in Wrocław, Poland. Otecki finds influence in Cubism, non-Western art, and Slavonic folklore. He is fond of presenting dualistic worlds and characters; especially human-animal combinations that are “part majesty and part mystery,” as the artist puts it.

This project is supported in part by Broadway-Fillmore Neighborhood Housing Services, which partnered with the AK Public Art Initiative in 2017 to produce Keir Johnston and Ernel Martinez’s Welcome Wall mural.
