The Hi-Temp building might be seeing its final art show this evening, due to the building being sold. This is both great news and sad news for the building and the artists, as these Hi-Temp shows have become awesome art draws for downtown Buffalo. At the same time, the building is mostly underutilized, when considering its potential to add to the ever-changing dynamics of the Cobblestone District and Canalside.
“With the sale of the Hi-Temp building to the Pegulas, Buffalo is (hopefully temporarily) losing the Hi-Temp Gallery,” said artist Chris Main. “Hi-Temp became a quintessential gallery space in Downtown Buffalo (Cobblestone District), and also became one of the hottest tickets for multifaceted shows featuring myriad artists.”
This evening, Friday, December 2 at 7-10:30 PM, fifteen local artists will be showing at this awesome industrial space one last time. The artists are:
Nick Sardynski (Acrylic on Canvas)
Andrew Rafanowicz (Specialty Rustics)
Sarah Meyers (Oil on Canvas)
George Gilham (Paintings)
Chris Main (Acrylic & Spray Paint on Canvas)
Chuck Tingley (Acrylic & Spray Paint on Cardboard)
Vinny Alejandro (Acrylics & Aerosols)
Norma Joy (Acrylic on Paper)
Todd Lesmeister (Sculpture & Drawing)
Brittany Rose (Blown Glass)
Barbara Frackiewicz (Mixed Media)
Doreen Cutting (Acrylic, Collage & Watercolors)
Joe Kewin (Sculpture)
Britten Walker (Acrylic on Canvas & Sculpture)
Bill Koch (Mixed Media Paintings)
More information can be found on Facebook. The gallery venue is located directly next to 716 Food and Sport (entrance on Perry).
*The opening is at Hi-Temp FAB (79 Perry St., BFLO NY) on Friday, Dec 2nd at 7-10:30 PM. There will be music, cash bar, free food and hors d’ oeuvres.
