Starlight Spotlight – “Co-Artifact,” a Profound Pairing of Visual Artists

This post currently has no comments.

By Judy Clonan-Smith, Art Studio Case Coordinator, The Learning Disabilities Association of WNY & Starlight Studio and Art Gallery

Starlight Studio and Art Gallery, a division of LDA of WNY, has begun a new project with local community artists called Co-Artifact. The Buffalo community, especially the community of area artists, has always been very supportive of what we do at Starlight. With this in mind, I happened across an online story of a graphic illustrator, her very young daughter and their collaborations. The wheels started turning.  Read moreRead more

As an admirer of Music is Art (MiA) and Robby Takac’s tireless commitment to Buffalo through it since covering and volunteering at the inaugural event in 2003, I’m honored to have been asked to curate a stage at the 12th annual festival this Saturday, September 13th, in beautiful Delaware Park. Arguably Buffalo’s greatest one-day cultural expression, MiA is a kaleidoscopic feast for the senses, and teaming with The Park School of Buffalo‘s Untitled Album club, we’re adding to its greatness as a family-friendly event by presenting an evening of young up-and-comers on the Kids Village stage, located near the Rose Garden on the southern end of the grounds. Here’s our lineup: Read moreRead more

During the last week of school, we decided to celebrate by making an all-time classic snack: Read moreRead more

The Brazen-Faced Varlets: Buffalo’s Progressive Feminist Theater Company. What does that even mean? The Varlets came together back in 2006, as the brainchild of Lara Haberberger, Heather Fansgrud and Kelly Beuth with some pretty big goals in mind.
