founded in 2017 by Chris Hawley, Molly Jarboe and Christina Laing


Our goal is to shine a light on overlooked areas of the city and surrounding areas, while bringing the gallery experience to new audiences.


Featuring work by well known Buffalo photographers and artists as well as citizen photographers known for their broader work in the community.


Visit our Event page for information about past shows and upcoming events in and around Buffalo. All our events are free and open to the public.
