Performers, Marie Prince | August 22 - October 29
While many were longing to get back to concert halls and performance venues during the pandemic, artist Marie Prince of Williamsville was busy honoring them by painting more than 50 pieces featuring performers of all types who Prince said make us feel “happy, sad, aware, or just thoughtful. They entertain us and offer an escape to magic places that at times makes life worth living.”
“Performers” is on display in Horizons Gallery from Aug. 22 through Oct. 29 and is available for viewing weekdays from 9am to 4:30pm, except holidays.
An opening event will be held Sunday, Aug. 22, from 2 to 5 pm, in the gallery, 140 Lower Terrace, Buffalo. Free parking is available in the Buffalo Toronto Public Media parking lot off Charles Street. Prince will have books of the pieces available for purchase at the opening. Please be aware that gallery guests will be asked to complete a health screening and may be asked to wear masks.
To purchase pieces from the collection or show books, contact Marie Prince at email@example.com or by leaving a message at (716) 634-7015.

These works are from students in the Youth Arts Program. Students in the Art and Photography & Filmmaking class spent this past session in the Buffalo Center for Arts & Technology program working on traditional fine art practices and learning digital publication tactics. Each work is an individually constructed project area the student chose to explore.
Buffalo Schools: Postcards from Memory
Statement by Autism Services, Inc., Teaching Artist Todd Lesmeister:
Aaron Brown’s memories are his inspiration; he does not use reference materials. It is as if his eyes have taken a photograph and his mind stores it and relays the information to his hand as he draws. Aaron depicts buildings in pencil, oil pastel, marker, and occasionally, paint. He will often draw the same buildings multiple times, but he is not marveling on their stylistic beauty or the importance of their architecture. When Aaron draws, he is reminiscing about his childhood, his teenage years, or recalling recent memories of his adult life. His drawings are postcards from his memory.
Brown’s visual essay, "Aaron Brown: Where I’m From,” is available to view here:atrium124artgallery.org/virtual-gallery/To learn more about Autism Services, Inc., visit autism-services-inc.org

Peace Project 2020/2021: a Virtual Buffalo Public Schools ARTS Event
During this time of year, it is important to be mindful of those that are less fortunate, those that are suffering, and those that may not feel loved or cared for. This seems especially so during this unrelenting COVID-19 pandemic.
We remind ourselves that it is important to always be kind, tolerant, compassionate, and open to love and happiness in all its wonderful forms.
We ask students to express what peace means to them through the visual arts, dance, and theatre.
