Four Upcoming Exhibitions

New Talent: 4 Under 30

Studio Hart

This exhibition of four Millennial artists showcases some of Buffalo’s most talented emerging artists. The show features photography, prints, and drawings by Catherine Willett, Alicia Paolucci, Max Collins, and Evan Hawkins. The artists are united by their distinct voices and prolific natures. The progression of the artists, conceptually and technically is amazing to witness as each works to find his or her niche.

Buffalo 1967: Photographs by Donald Blank

Queen City Gallery

Opening: Friday, September 13, 6-9pm

Donald Blank was in Buffalo during the 1960s when many students were involved in anti-war and civil rights protests. He used his 35-millimeter camera to capture people in the city, photographing citizens from all walks of life, finding narrative in their expressions. He often caught his subjects day to day, unaware of Blank’s presence.

Daniel Galas: Not Fade Away

Buffalo Art Studio

Opening: Saturday, September 14, 7-10pm

Using Buffalo architecture as his starting point, artist Daniel Galas creates whimsical linoleum block prints that he carves on location. The results are prints that capture the unique nature of structures in their simplest form. For this exhibit, Galas will build an interactive sculpture based on the Central Terminal.

Maude White: Storytelling Through Cut Paper


Opening: Friday, September 13, 7-9pm

With just an exacto knife and some sturdy paper, local artist Maude White carves away to reveal scenes reminiscent of fairy-tales. White came from a family of visual storytellers; her art is inspired by her sister and mother, both gifted toy-makers, and her experiences as a child at Waldorf School. Each one of her paper cuts show her astounding commitment to detail. “When I cut paper, I feel as if I am peeling back the outer, superficial layer of our vision to reveal the secret space beneath.”
