Mar 31, 2022
Buffalo, N.Y. - The C. Stuart and Jane H. Hunt Art Gallery, a new commercial gallery space in downtown Buffalo, will be unveiled to the public at a grand opening celebration on April 14, 2022 from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. The gallery founded by Peter Hunt [of Hunt Real Estate], has formed a novel partnership with the Buffalo Society of Artists (BSA), and students from UB’s Arts Management program. Named in honor of Hunt’s parents, the gallery embodies the resurgence and revitalization of the Queen City.
The pandemic stalled access to the arts, but the Buffalo artist community never stopped creating. Hunt Gallery is opening with a mission to support Western New York (WNY) artists. Artists from the BSA organization and WNY region will be given a venue to exhibit and sell their work both in person and online, as well as provided a revolving studio space for six artists, free of rent. BSA and Hunt Gallery Manager, Christina Buscarino, will be working closely with the chosen artists in the creation of artwork and exhibitions.
The public is invited to join in the celebration of The C. Stuart and Jane H. Hunt Art Gallery’s first grand opening exhibition which will be on April 14th from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. The opening of “Susan Copley and Bunny Leighton: Force(s) of Nature” will feature paintings and drawings from two of BSA’s world renowned artists, Susan Copley and Bunny Leighton. Following this event, the gallery will be open weekly Wednesday through Friday from 11am-7pm and Saturdays from 10am-4pm.
