The MARK 10 Group Show at Artspace

Anchoring the downtown Main Street corridor for the cultural arts is the Brietweiser Building, late of a major printing firm, still later of the American Electric Car Company, but most recently repurposed to provide both subsidized housing and studio space to Buffalo artists of all disciplines. Currently the abundant gallery facility is exhibiting the work of the NYFA MARK 10, individual visual artists that reside beyond the five boroughs of New York City living and working in Western New York. The New York Foundation for the Arts MARK (which is not an acronym), in its fourth year, is uniquely designed as a professional development program for working artists regionally to increase the visibility of creative practice, advance career opportunities, and get a handle on finances. The Artspace exhibit is a group show comprising the work of the program members chosen for the 2010 seminar series. They are an especially close-knit group and have mounted a first-rate presentation at Artspace.

Downstairs is Robert Hirsh’s collection of photos and other memorabilia of the turning-point decade of recent American history, the 1960s.
