Exhibition event supports professional & career goals of WNY artists
"Merging Mediums" will showcase the work of 27 artists ranging in style and medium, including painting, sculpture, interactive art, music, poetry and dance. The exhibition will feature a collective of Western New York artists who participated in the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) conference hosted by Arts Services Initiative of WNY (ASI) in October 2016.
With the help of the staff at ASI, this collective artists reunites to bring a group exhibition to Buffalo. The opening reception will be from 6-9 p.m. Friday, March 2, at the Main Street Gallery, 515 Main St., Buffalo. Attendees can enjoy a plethora of art, music and other surprise performances. Admission to the reception is free.
Participating artists include: Kathie Aspaas, Daniel Butler, Caitlin Cass, Colleen Darby, Sara Dinatale, Audrey Kay Dowling, Stephanie Dubin, Kaitlin Frisicaro, Keith Harrington, Allan Hebeler, Ani Hoover, Ashley Johnson, Joyce Kessel, Alison Kurek, Marissa Lehner, Ricardo Letelier Brecht, Nicholas Miller, Penelope Minner, Brenda Molloy, Anthony Phillips, Helen Ruggieri, Jeannine Swallow, Jessica Tomaino, Edreys Wajed, Kimberly Weikert, Andrea Wenglowskyj and Janna Willoughby-Lohr.
The initial 2016 conference was a multiday professional development opportunity, titled "Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp," which delved into the principles of sustainability in the arts. Participating artists learned how to extend their artistic careers and retained fundamental skill-sets such as budgeting, marketing and grant writing. Since this weekend-long workshop series, the group maintained contact and members continued to work together to achieve their professional goals, including this first-time collective exhibition.
"Merging Mediums" will be on view March 2-7. Gallery hours are available upon request. Contact Natalie at [email protected] or 716-523-0068.
