Indigo Art is an Opulent Showing in Allentown

Indigo-Art-Buffalo-NY-1What was formerly a salon space in Allentown has, as if overnight, transformed into a dramatic gallery.

Elizabeth Samuels, owner and curator of Indigo Art says that this is her attempt to reinvent the gallery, into something that is visually captivating for the viewer. “I wanted to stay in Allentown,” she told me. “So when this space became available I jumped on it. This will give me the ability to showcase larger installation pieces, plus there is a continuity that I admire that I did not have at my other location.”

The new gallery is both light and spacious. There are no right angles in the gallery… all of the walls appear to be trapezoidal, making for an interesting viewing dynamic. Indigo looks like a professional gallery, sounds like a professional gallery and acts the part to a tee. From the pervasive quietness to the invigorating natural light that emanates throughout, Indigo Gallery has the ability to become a real powerhouse in the cultural scene in Buffalo.

Indigo-Art-Buffalo-NY-3The gallery’s first show is called Opulent Rituals, featuring recent work by Leeann Catanzaro. This is an intimate and delicate show that demonstrates the flexibility of the space.

The gallery’s official launch will be in September, when Elizabeth will be curating two shows for the space. The first will be the works of Felice Koenig and Kevin Kegler. After that the works of Buffalo muralist Augustina Droze will be featured.

It will be interesting to see how the increase in space and dynamic output will affect the types of shows that Indigo hosts. Allentown is lucky to have a dedicated gallery owner such as Elizabeth who continues to beat the drum for the local art scene. This new gallery space is a dream for many artists – it looks as if it was originally fashioned to hang works of art, between the vaulting ceilings, the oversized walls and the natural illumination.

The arts are alive in Allentown. Be sure to keep a look out for some talented artists to be showing their works in one of the more beautiful settings in the city – Indigo Art.
