The new year is nearly a month old, and the winter weather is leaving many Buffalonians cooped up in their homes, not wanting to endure the harsh temperatures. We’ve become accustomed to frigid, freezing weather. As January is quickly coming to an end, bundle up in your warmest coat and make your way to Western New York Book Arts Center to enjoy some beautiful art. The exhibition, titled The Log Lines, features the art of Jill Kambs and Timothy Frerichs. The opening reception will be held on Friday January 29th from 6-9pm at Western New York Book Arts Center, located at 468 Washington Street in downtown Buffalo.
This exhibition will showcase artist books and prints from two artists with Midwestern ties. Both Frerichs and Kambs completed their graduate work at The University of Iowa. The work on display is inspired by the industrial agriculture that dominated the landscape of the Midwest. The work of each artist engages in investigating human interaction and impact on the environment.
Kambs’ and Frerichs’ show is the first in the 5 x 12 series at WNYBAC, a NYSCA-funded year-long residency that features five artists over the course of twelve months. Gallery hours are 12-6pm Wednesday-Saturday. Admission to the gallery is always free. If you would like any more information, please visit wnybookarts.org or call 716-348 1430. We hope to see you there!
