AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Photography takes center stage at CEPA, another non-profit gallery formed in the 1970s that's still going strong. CEPA's a bit schizophrenic, with one foot firmly in the Manhattan art world and the other rooted solidly in Buffalo (its on-site store sells one-of-a-kind prints of Basquiat taken by a CEPA artist at the Mudd Club in the '80s, next to stark, black-and-white shots of Buffalo's decaying grain factories). But its photography exhibits are thought-provoking and steeped in modern politics: a recent exhibit was titled “Art of War,” featuring works that came from conflict zones. Another project, “Visions of Greater Buffalo,” features simple pictures of the city taken by famous Buffalo residents with single-use color cameras.
