Floor-to-ceiling artist installations utilizing the unique architectural properties of UB’s Anderson Gallery will be showcased during the Buffalo Society of Artists’ 115th Catalogue Exhibition, opening on Nov. 12 in the gallery at 1 Martha Jackson Place off Englewood Avenue near Kenmore Avenue and UB’s South Campus.

An opening reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. Nov. 12. A discussion and tour with exhibiting artists will take place from 1-3 p.m. Nov. 19. Both are free and open to the public, as is the exhibition, which will be on view through Jan. 8.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday.

Founded in 1891, the Buffalo Society of Artists is one of the oldest continually operating arts organizations in the country. The mission of the group, which currently numbers approximately 200 artists, is “to promote and recognize excellence in visual art through the presentation of exhibitions and activities favorable to artistic expression, and to develop interchange among artists and those interested in the arts.”

The juried exhibition at the Anderson Gallery, organized by independent curator Sara Kellner from 37 submissions, comprises 11 distinct installations. These artists work with and against tradition in a wide range of media, among them painting, photography and sculpture, as well as audio-visual work.

In celebration of the 120th anniversary of the Buffalo Society of Artists, exhibitions are being held concurrently at three separate locations.

The exhibition at the Anderson Gallery coincides with exhibitions at the Carnegie Art Center, 240 Goundry St., North Tonawanda, and the Burchfield Penney Art Center, 1300 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo, both opening on Nov. 10 and running through Jan. 8.
