Harvey Breverman: Humanist Impulses

This exhibition celebrates Breverman’s lifelong career as an internationally renowned artist and educator.

The exhibition showcases over one hundred paintings and drawings from the 1980s to the present, as well as a print survey.

On Saturday, October 2, Douglas Dreishpoon, Ph.D., the Senior Curator at Albright-Knox Art Gallery will moderate a panel discussion, from 3pm to 5 pm at the Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society.
