This biennial exhibition featured the work of 28 artists from the eight county areas in Western New York. Chief Curator Michael Auping and Curator Cheryl Brutvan organized the show, after conducting 45 studio visits and reviewing the work of more than 200 artists in all media, from sculpture and works on paper to video.

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.

This exhibition was organized by Chief Curator Michael Auping and Curator Cheryl Brutvan.

Exhibition Sponsors

This exhibition was made possible through the generous support of the law firm of Lippes, Kaminsky, Silverstein, Mathias & Wexler, and through funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.
