Genesee Community College also embraces WNY artists

Take a bow, Colin Dabkowski. As art critic for The Buffalo News, we appreciate his shining a spotlight on the exceptional and exceptionally diverse arts offerings in Western New York, and in particular, the venues that showcase these extraordinary offerings. As he pointed out, numerous and prominent colleges and universities across the region provide impressive economic contributions that not only celebrate academic excellence, but creative aesthetic as well. And just as the art itself is widely diversified, so, too, are the spaces that host those endeavors.
As Dabkowski observed, the University at Buffalo and Daemen College are two outstanding examples of higher education institutions that have embraced artists by giving them outstanding stages on which to shine. But just as the art world encompasses more than canvas and clay, the Western New York gallery scene is larger than Erie County.
Genesee Community College in Batavia offers artists working in all media a new, exquisite, modern gallery space featuring 1,700 square feet that can be configured according to the mood, theme and needs of the exhibiting artists. The Roz Steiner Art Gallery will host the work of Alfred University’s Dale Inglett in his Transient Beings exhibit this fall, transforming the gallery with figurative paintings, prints and videos that explore identity, time and existence. And in the new year, we will be exhibiting the sculpture of Elena Lourenco, an assistant professor of fine arts in sculpture at Buffalo State College. Join us as we continue to embrace and celebrate the art scene.
