Self Exploration: A Black Man’s Portraits
An Exhibition by Nicholas Stokes

on view October 2 – October 24, 2020 / studio gallery

The Western New York Book Arts Center presents an exhibition by WNY artist Nicholas Stokes, on view October 2 – October 24, 2020, in the Studio Gallery located in the lower-level letterpress studio.

This show explores different experiences, reactions, and moments in one artist’s life as the search for completion at an early age becomes staggering. Portraits are sacred and close to biblical to evoke emotion.

Nicholas Stokes, born in Buffalo, NY, is an artist and undergraduate student working towards a BA in Art and BFA in Art Education. Stokes has already achieved an Associates degree in Fine Arts and plans to continue that education to further his knowledge of the art world.
