Beyond/In Western New York 2005
Saturday, April 30–Sunday, June 19, 2005
The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has been organizing exhibitions dedicated to artists living and working in the Western New York region since 1934. Beyond/In Western New York 2005 continued the Gallery’s commitment to regional artists, and in an ambitious effort to expand the scope of the project, the geographic parameters for eligible artists was extended to Southern Ontario, North Eastern Ohio, North Western Pennsylvania, and Western and Central New York. This endeavor marks the largest collaborative exhibition in the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s history, by expanding the exhibition not only geographically, but also by inviting other local institutions to participate, including Buffalo Arts Studio, The Burchfield-Penney Art Center, Big Orbit Gallery, Carnegie Art Center, Castellani Art Museum ,CEPA Gallery, El Museo Francisco Oller Y Diego Rivera, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, Langston Hughes Institute, Squeaky Wheel, UB Anderson Gallery, and the UB Art Gallery.
This exhibition was made possible through the generous support of Judge and Mrs. John T. Elfvin, Northtown Automotive Companies, and The Cameron Baird Foundation.
