Opening Reception: March 12, 5–7:30pm

A painter of dynamic scenery, intimate portraits, and sumptuous still life, Buffalo-born Sally Cook has been a vital part of the arts community in Western New York since her early years as a student at the Albright Art School in the 1950s. This survey brings together major paintings from her earliest abstract canvas dating 1960 to the most recent figurative works. The exhibition also highlights her work as a poet and her painterly engagement with the poet Emily Dickinson who provides an ongoing inspiration for Cook.

Sally Cook: 1960-Present is curated by Liz Park, Curator, UB Art Galleries, and related programming is organized in partnership with UB Arts Collaboratory. Support is provided by John Fatta/1120 Projects, Daniel and Shelley Fogel, and UB Arts Collaboratory.
