The Churches of Buffalo: Photographs By Michael Mulley

Over the past decade or so of strolling the streets of Buffalo with his camera, Queen City Gallery owner Mike Mulley has always been impressed by the number of amazing churches that dot the city. 
As an mainly architectural photographer, Mulley says he has always been attracted to those mammoth structures. “Visually they hold a power over the skyline. Whether from sheer scale or their steeples piercing the sky, Buffalo’s houses of worship seem right at home amidst the city’s other magnificent buildings like City Hall, The Dunn Building and the Guaranty Building, while holding a unique place in the hearts and history of the city.”
St. Paul’s Cathedral and St. Louis Church have consistently figured into Mulley’s Buffalo portfolio, but it was only recently that he began venturing inside.
He says he found “a certain peacefulness that fills the interior of any church.  Whether simple or covered with reliefs, the vaulted ceilings create a beautiful space that is awe-inspiring and make for great photographs.”

He has also included Corpus Christi, St. Ann’s and St. Stanislaus to represent the East Side. “Allentown’s Presbyterian Church, The Basilica in Lackawanna, and the amazing Blessed Trinity Church on Leroy Street (left) are featured as well,” Mulley says. “The twenty some photographs featured in this exhibit are only a sample of what I have seen through my viewfinder, though many others are available.”
Join Mike for an opening night reception on Friday, January 22nd, from 5 to 8PM, at The Queen City Gallery at the Market Arcade (617 Main Street).  Show closes February 21st.  For more information, call 856.2839 M-F, 11 to 4PM.
