A reception for the opening of the art exhibit Friday November 3, 2017, from 6 to 10 pm.  The Day of the Dead will feature installations, mixed media, film, music, paintings, and sculptures from various artists, including the co-owners of the gallery, Mara Odette and Rick Williams.  The exhibit runs through Tuesday, November 14th.

El Dia de los Muertos is a national holiday in Mexico.  It features a blend of Mexican indigenous traditions with European Catholic influences, but it is first and foremost about honoring ancestors.

Casa de Arte has presented Mexican art to Buffalo for seven years.  During our annual Day of the Dead celebration, we always highlight an artist that is no longer with us.  This year, sadly, it will be Casa De Arte itself, as we will close our doors for good after this, our final exhibit. 

 

BUFFALO, NY – Buffalo Prep, a highly rated and nationally recognized non-profit organization that provides a road map to college acceptance for more than 500 underrepresented students annually, is accepting applications to its Middle School Prep and High School Prep programs. The organization is inviting bright and dedicated 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students to apply to its unique and exceptional academic enrichment and support programs. One-hundred percent of Buffalo Prep scholars graduate from high school and are accepted to college.

Buffalo Prep’s rigorous summer and after-school academic programs aim to equip a new and diverse generation of motivated students with the skills they need to achieve their goals.
