A number of artists are opening a new exhibition at 431 Ellicott Street – the gallery space next to Fitz Books and Waffles. Called Project 431, artists featuring their work include Jonathan Bishop, DJ Carr, Robert Harris, Kyla Kegler, Phillip Kuznicki and Sufana Wajed.
This new space, adjoining Fitz, has become a hotspot for artists looking to set up shop in places that aren’t considered traditional gallery spaces. Since bursting onto the scene, it has temporarily housed The Space Between (by UB Arts Collaboratory), Eat Off Art (orchestrated by Edreys and Alexa Wajed), and is now essentially used as an annex gallery that plays on the bookstore (and waffles) .
Speaking of waffles, if you haven’t had a chance to try one of Aaron Bartley’s Liege waffles, you don’t know what you’re missing.
And if you’re planning on heading to Project 431’s opening reception, be sure to make time to stop by Realm, a few doors down.
“Join us for a toast at the Project 431 Opening Reception! This Friday, March 11, from 6-9 p.m. in the nearby Fitz Books and Waffles Gallery 431 Ellicott St. Buffalo NY 14203. This will be the opening of a 6-month art exhibition/shop of rotating works from: I’ll have a few from my Value and Deep Fake series this Friday, alongside an intriguing and eclectic collection of works by my show mates.– Kyla Kegler
