More about the artists:
Team Razor Wire is a joining of forces between artists Nicholas Miller and Christopher Kameck, who have the common goal of creating lasting and impactful public art. Established in 2015 while painting “The Worker” mural in the Old First Ward in Buffalo, the collective has contributed to the cultural landscape of Buffalo with several projects dotted across the city. Their work becomes artistic interventions that enhance the community.
They were recently featured in a Buffalo Rising article here: https://www.buffalorising.com/2017/08/the-power-of-community-building-through-art/
Please considering sponsoring this amazing project! We believe art and culture can really enhance the community and this is a great way to shine a bright light on Oliver Street. We would be so grateful for your support.
Join us for the Opening Reception of “The Art of Mental Health” on Wed. August 9th at 6-9pm.
The Project 308 Gallery in North Tonawanda will host a new exhibition for the month of August with an opening reception on August 9th at 6pm. This exhibition will feature artwork by the participants of “The Art of Mental Health” Program at the Niagara Visions PROS through the Community Missions of Niagara Frontier. Participants in “The Art of Mental Health” program are diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities and use the class to learn how they can incorporate art into their recovery. The sessions are led by Sandie Crocker, the program’s Training Coordinator, who has a teaching degree in Art Education and is a board certified Art Therapist.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to partner with Project 308 Gallery on this event,” said Christian Hoffman, Communications & Development Manager at Community Missions. “The Art for Mental Health program at Niagara Visions PROS has helped so many individuals grow over the years. The chance to see their pieces on display in a gallery will continue that growth, providing a tremendous sense of self-esteem and accomplishment for the artists. We can’t wait to see it all come together!”
The public is welcome to attend the opening reception on August 9th. The exhibition will also be on view to the public during the Oliver Street Art Festival on Saturday, August 12th, 12-5pm.
Thursday, October 5th, 6:30-8:30 pm
The Project 308 Gallery welcomes Vanessa from MuseJar to host a wood burning workshop to raise money for Arts Services Initiative (ASI).
For $35, Vanesaa will show you how to create a work of art by wood burning and a little bit of painting. No artistic experience is necessary.
We will provide beer, wine and some snacks. We will also provide all of the materials needed to make the project.
More about the project:
MUSEjar Art Supply Store will host TOPOGRAPHIC MIXED MEDIA GREAT LAKES craft class at the Project 308 Gallery - Topography is the study of the shape and features of the surface of the earth. We will study Lake Erie and translate the topographical map into a really awesome abstract painting on wood. Different depths will represent different colors (of your choice). Our project will begin by outlining the lake and the different depths with a wood burner, to create a relief. After that, we will pick our colors and paint!
There is a limit for how many people we can host so please register HERE. Registration for this class will close on September 26th!
The price of the event will cover the cost for materials, support Vanessa at MuseJar and support ASI!
