National Artists Bring MICA Alumni Exhibition to 464 Gallery

It’s interesting to see just what can happen when one artist is ‘boomeranged’ back to Buffalo. In the case of Laura Borneman, who was featured on BRO back in April of 2014, the artist not only brings with her the talents that she needs to carve out a future for herself in the local art world, she also brings with her a network of artist co-alums who live throughout the country.

On Friday, April 10, 2015, from 6-10pm, 464 Gallery will be featuring Laura and seven of her artist associates who all attended Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). The ties that bonded the artists at MICA have allowed for this unusual artistic undertaking to culminate with a show in Buffalo, featuring the fine art, sculpture and installation works of Laura Borneman (Buffalo, NY), Erin Barach (Baltimore, MD), Nicole Herbert (Harrisburg, PA), Ashley Lathe (Charlotte, NC), Joy Moore (Houston, TX), Nikki Moser (Factoryville, PA) and Miguel Navarro (Los Angeles, CA).

“The participating artists question their relationship to context and consider their work as contingent upon these relationships. Our work seeks to demystify and revel in our familiar, lived environments, while simultaneously framing and fracturing the ideological underpinnings.”

“Context Contingent”

Event is free and open to the public. Light snacks and drinks available.
