The debut solo exhibit by artist Tito Ruiz features striking portraits, emotional action shots, and powerful street photography celebrating the intersectional fight for justice in WNY.
Ruiz, a Buffalo State College graduate, has a background in editorial writing/photography and media consulting. He lived in NYC and LA before moving back to Buffalo several years ago, and was first involved with CEPA Gallery through their award-winning community education programs. Emerging in only the gallery sense, Ruiz’s art focuses on the use of visual imagery in advocacy.
As part of CEPA Gallery’s emerging artist program, Ruiz was able to produce 30+ large prints for his first solo exhibition, all of which will be available for purchase when the show closes on August 31, 2020.
CEPA Gallery also provided Ruiz with guidance, curation and installation, along with a small stipend, made possible through the generous support of the Joy of Giving Something, the Golden and Goldman Fund, Arts Services Initiative of Western New York, the County of Erie and the City of Buffalo.
