Buffalo Arts Studio is thrilled to present a new group exhibition in partnership with The C. Stuart and Jane H. Hunt Art Gallery. Looking Up is an exhibition of new work by four artists who were a part of the Hunt Gallery Residency program. The C. Stuart and Jane H. Hunt Art Gallery provides emerging WNY artists rent-free studio space for four to five months and encourages the selected artists to collaborate and network with one another. This residency allows emerging artists to enter a collaborative environment in partnership with the Buffalo Society of Artists (BSA) where they will have the opportunity to collaborate and exhibit work throughout the duration of their occupancy. 

Buffalo Arts Studio Visual Arts Director Shirley Verrico and Hunt Gallery Manager Christina Buscarino will co-curate a collection of work by former Hunt Gallery Artists-in-Residence Kevin Burzynski, DJ Carr, Laura Valkwitch, and Nicholas Wheeler. 

Looking Up will be on display from February 23&March 30, 2024, with an opening reception on Friday, February 23 from 5:00&8:00 pm.

Kevin Burzynski is a visual artist from Buffalo, NY who works in photography and mixed-media painting. DJ Carr is a self-taught artist from Buffalo, NY specializing in portraiture, documentary, and street photography. Laura Valkwitch is a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on pyrography and oil painting. Nicholas Wheeler is an artist, tradesperson, and designer. He works primarily through woodworking and carpentry and is often oscillating between the worlds of art, decorative design, and architecture.
