CEPA Gallery Exhibits Stephen Gabris, Adam Cooley, and CEPA Members

CEPA is excited to announce the opening of three exhibitions on December 9: Places I’ve Been with Bob by Stephen Gabris, Boro Land by Adam Cooley, and the 2022 Members Show; where all current CEPA members were invited to submit one artwork for the exhibition. There will be an opening reception on December 9, 2022, from 5-8 pm. The shows are taking place in the historic Market Arcade Building located at 617 Main St in Buffalo and will run until January 25, 2022.

Stephen Gabris’s latest exhibition, Places I’ve Been with Bob, is a visually beautiful and touching tribute to his late father-in-law. In the words of the artist, “As time passes, I have been forced to look at my images (on more than one occasion) as a recollection of an experience had with someone now gone. It’s an odd piece of debitage that we collect along the way in this field.”

Adam Cooley’s Boro Land builds upon his well-known use of fantastic imagery and symbolism to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Buffalo and its Japanese sister city Kanazawa. All works have been created from secondhand fabric so that nothing goes to waste.

CEPA’s 2022 Members Show showcases over 60 artists. This year, two winners will be selected from the participants. Each winner will receive a free solo exhibition to be held at CEPA Gallery in September 2023. This year’s juror will be John Opera, the Program Head of Photography at SUNY University at Buffalo. Winners of the solo exhibitions will be announced at the opening reception.

We hope you will join us for the opening reception of these three exhibitions, which will take place on December 9, 2022, from 5-8 PM at 617 Main St Buffalo, NY 14203. CEPA Gallery would like to thank our sponsors for helping make this exhibition possible, Joy of Giving Something Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts, and Erie County. Additional support for Boro Land was provided by the Sato Restaurant Group, Island Kids Child Care Center, and the Chinese Club of Western New York.
