Event Recap

On Thursday, February 17, 2011, the Gallery hosted a Members’ Preview and Reception for Surveyor, a Collection-based exhibition presenting modern and contemporary artists whose works are rooted in the exploration, observation, construct, and perception of landscape.

The exhibition features the premiere of several major new acquisitions for the Gallery's Collection; works from the Collection that have not been on view in recent months; work by five Buffalo-based artists—Michael Basinski, Bingyi, Millie Chen, Peter Stephens, and Paul Vanouse—who respond to the exhibition's theme with their own work and with curated selections from the Gallery’s Collection; and rare art poetry books from the Poetry Collection at the University at Buffalo. 

Surveyor is on view at the Albright-Knox through Sunday, June 5, 2011.
