About the Western New York Exhibitions
The Western New York exhibitions acknowledge the breadth of talent in the art community of Western New York and reflect the Albright-Knox’s ongoing commitment to support the creative endeavors of these artists. Begun in 1934, the Western New York exhibitions bring together notable works of art in the region and provide a wider field of appreciation for area artists.
Painting, sculpture, prints, and works on paper have traditionally been included, with a category of photography added in 1951 and video and film in 1984. From 1977 to 2010, the Western New York exhibitions alternated with In Western New York and Beyond/In Western New York, invitational exhibitions with selections made by the museum’s curators.
