Buffalo Arts Studio’s new season of exhibitions will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday with the opening reception for two solo shows by artists Leif Low-Beer and Daniel Galas.
Galas, a Western New York native, returned to Buffalo in 2011 after living in Brooklyn; Berkeley, Calif.; and the Hudson Valley and experimenting with various subjects and media. His latest body of linoleum block prints based on Buffalo landmarks, each of which contains some vaguely human element, combines his interest in landscape and portraiture. His exhibition, titled “Not Fade Away,” also will feature a large, anthropomorphic sculpture of Buffalo’s Central Terminal, in which visitors can “immerse themselves in the belly,” according to the invitation.
Low-Beer, who was educated in Guelph, Ont., and now lives and works in Brooklyn, will present pairings of mixed-media work and sculpture that are designed to play off each other. The work, Low-Beer wrote, is “like Saul Steinberg dinner party … a gathering of distinct personalities.”
The exhibitions run through Nov. 9 on the fifth floor of the TriMain Building (2495 Main St.). Call 833-4450 or visit buffaloartsstudio.org.
