Virocode – “No Hope For the Future”

No Bigger Than A Pie Box

ArtReach – 500 Seneca Street, Buffalo, NY 5:30-7:30pm

Tickets available at

The newly formed ArtReach has organized a silent auction with a quirky theme; asking a select group of artists to create a small work that would fit inside a pie box. We decided to play off of an iconic all American item, the apple pie while also thinking about potential collector’s size constraints, artists busy schedules and price point.

All work will be sold through silent auction. Participating artists include Bruce Adams, A.J. Fries, Amy Greenan, Anne Muntges, Peter Stephens, and many more. Each of the original works available will be ready to hang and come housed in a commemorative pie box.

Each of the 20 artists involved will receive 50% of the sale price of their work and the remaining 50% will be split between charities selected by ArtReach: the Pride Center of WNY, YWCA Western New York, Inc., and Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York Action Fund.
