Buffalo Arts Studio’s exhibition program presents new works by emerging and established artists that critically address contemporary issues. Buffalo Arts Studio’s internationally recognized exhibitions program includes 10-12 solo and/or group exhibitions in our two main galleries, attracting over 13,000 visitors annually. All solo exhibitions are professionally curated and include an exhibition catalog with images and essays. The 2000 square feet of gallery space features museum-quality track lighting fitted with LED bulbs and commercial quality display surfaces within a historic industrial building. BAS also includes the Community Space (1600 sq ft) fitted with track lighting and exhibition walls to showcase the work from a variety of individuals and organization helping BAS develop meaningful partnerships with civic, educational, and cultural organizations. These partnerships assist us in building new audiences for both our gallery and thirty-two Resident Artist.
In January of 2015, BAS piloted a new exhibition/performance/workshop program called the Project Space Initiative (PSI). This exhibition and performance series features dynamic exhibitions and performances that highlight the process of art making. PSI exhibits often include on-site activities that engaged the public while continuing the creative process throughout the six-week exhibition cycle. The nature of this program also builds a strong relationship between the artist, curator, and BAS community.
With increased support from NYSCA, BAS is expanding the PSI into the 2017 exhibition calendar. The goal of the PSI is to highlight the dynamic process of artists and art making while engaging new audiences in diverse and meaningful ways.
Exhibitions are scheduled 1 to 2 years in advance. We are currently reviewing submissions for the 2017/2018 exhibition period.
