Buffalo Arts Studio brings together four artists working at the intersection of art and craft to exhibit in the Community Space gallery. Colleen Ayson, Helen Beckley-Forest, Angela Guest, and Kelly Schnurr all combine traditional modes of artmaking, including drawing, painting, and photography, with innovative textile and collage practices. The resulting objects are dynamic expressions of personal, playful gestures. Layers will be on display from June 28&August 9, 2024, with an opening reception on Friday, June 28 from 5:00&8:00 pm.

Colleen Ayson is a visual artist born and raised in San Fernando Valley, CA. She has a degree in Art from the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Ayson’s work explores the mysterious alchemy of beauty in nature and the amazing creatures that inhabit our world.

Helen Beckley-Forest is an artist based in Buffalo, NY. She graduated with a degree in Painting from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 2023. Her work touches on themes of climate change and the relationship between nature and humans.
