Chris Reilley, locally-known photographer and designer, developed the web gallery, Queen City Prints, as a way to conveniently and professionally showcase our area’s many fine artists such as Bruce Adams, Chuck Tingley and Paula Sciuk. Queen City Prints gives Western New Yorkers the opportunity to browse and purchase local artists’ work, both originals and prints, at affordable prices from their home or office.
“Queen City Prints is unique in that it eliminates the need to travel to search out art; it exposes many people to local art who may not have seen these artists’ work; and it gives a broad audience a chance to own either a print or an original piece,” said Chris Reilley, owner. “Avant was a perfect fit for the event, not only for its innovation and dedication to the community, but it allows us to create a unique experience by pairing the art with the breathtaking views from one of the top floor units.”
Avant is a multi-functional redevelopment of the former Dulski Building, located at 200 Delaware Avenue. French for “forward,” Avant’s classic glass curtain wall profile reflects Buffalo today and tomorrow. Sustainably-designed, this adaptive reuse of the former Dulski Federal Building covers an entire city block and includes three distinct but interrelated functions: an Embassy Suites on the first eight floors, Class A office space on the next four floors and 28 exceptional residences on the top three floors.
