Take an art break and go on a virtual tour of Sally Cook: 1960–Present!

A painter of dynamic scenery, intimate portraits and sumptuous still life, Buffalo-born Sally Cook has been a vital part of the arts community in Western New York since her early years as a student at the Albright Art School in the 1950s. This survey brings together major paintings from her earliest abstract canvas dating 1960 to the most recent figurative works. The exhibition also highlights her work as a poet and her painterly engagement with the poet Emily Dickinson who provides an ongoing inspiration for Cook.

Led by UB Art Galleries curator of exhibitions Liz Park, this tour will give an overview of the exhibition and UB Art Galleries.
