Overview

This unique art gallery is the only arts organization in Western New York that focuses on the works of Latin/Caribbean and African American artists. It was started in 1981 by a grass roots group of Latin and Caribbean artists, who noticed that artwork done by artists in their ethnic groups was not represented in most traditional art galleries. This group sponsored a number of exhibits on Buffalo's West Side. They later began including the works of people from all different types of backgrounds and eventually opened a permanent gallery. Local, national and international artists display their work here. Many of the exhibits are designed to educate people, as well as entertain them. -Christine A. Smyczynski
