I first gained an interest in photography when I was young and noticed how pictures are all around us and had a curiosity in the purpose they serve. What has always interested me in photography is the ability to convey non-visual things through visual means like emotions or ideas, capturing something larger than what is in the frame. Conversely, how

Merritt is the selected recipient of the Global Warming Art Project from Ben Perrone and the Environment Maze project donors. Facilitated by Art Services1, of Buffalo, NY. The exhibition reveals the world of art and science with an emphasis on environmental awareness for our fertile soils alongside exhibited art. Come and explore a visual renewal of our soil’s relationship with the climate. See hundreds of hand-altered photographic collages of soil and lush underearth ecosystems. Revealing the world of the invisible but at a scale that engulfs you.   Often, fertile soil is forgotten about as a natural resource. Merritt’s studio time preparing for this exhibition was spent by capturing investigations behind the microscope. Merritt’s trademark laboratory-like installations that

Through sound, motion-activated technology, and the sight of cotton hanging from a glass jar, this project confronts the complicated reality of racism which many African Americans have experienced - and continue to struggle against - for a long time in America. Designed as an interactive experience, Hang in There activates as viewers come closer to the objects in the exhibition. For example, the sound of a former slave reverberates off a single glass jar in the exhibition then, once a viewer’s presence is detected, a secondary disembodied sound of a man describing the many ways to whip a Bull becomes activated as well. Slashing through the space and echoing off the bodies of the persons within the exhibit, the whipping sounds of the Bullwhip heightens the overall viewing experience. Surrounded by such soundscapes, which are triggered by action and movement, the viewing participant become implicated in the

There will be an opening reception on July 1, 2022 from 5-8 pm. The show is taking place in the historic Market Arcade Building located at 617 Main St in Buffalo and will run until July 30, 2022. In Mythologies of Identity: A Genderless World, Jamaican American photographer Dane-Adrian Smith (they/them) presents a postgender fantasy that challenges heteronormative definitions and brings a fresh perspective and powerful voice to the conversation surrounding gender, identity, and living authentically. The work shows how situations can impact someone's ability to form a strong sense of self. It bridges the gap between traditional definitions of masculinity and femininity through fashion, portrait styling, and makeup, allowing full expression of a felt identity in a postgender world. A Genderless World is a prelude exhibit for the Mythologies of Identity series, which challenges current social norms regarding definitions of embodied identity featuring Dane-Adrian Smith, Jean-René Leblanc, and Cindy Sherman, on view at
