A midsummer night's art

Four galleries host exhibit openings for Art NT walk

— — There’s a whole lot of art going on in North Tonawanda’s galleries — and those who take part in the first Art NT Summer Art Walk will get the chance to see it all.

The Art Walk will take place Saturday at the Partners in Art Gallery and River Art Gallery on Webster Street, Project 308 on Oliver Street and Carnegie Art Center on Goundry Street. Each location will host a concurrent opening reception for its respective show that evening, with events kicking off as early as 4 p.m. and lasting as late as 8 p.m.

Visitors who take a passport — available at each of the locations — to be punched at all four galleries that night will also be able to stop by Webster’s Bistro and Bar at 102 Webster St. for a free treat.

Mary Simpson, director of the Carnegie Art Center, said the event is meant to cross-promote the city’s artistic offerings to the benefit of each venue.

“I think one of our roles here is to collaborate with other cultural institutions and promote the unique venues of North Tonawanda,” she said. “It’s been successful in other places and it gives visitors a real sense of North Tonawanda’s architecture and offerings.”

The Carnegie’s offering Saturday will be the opening of the Buffalo Society of Artists’ open member exhibition, with work ranging from paintings and drawing to photography and multi-media. The opening will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the center, and the exhibit will be on display through Aug. 23.


At Project 308 on Oliver Street, “Mixed Message,” a collection of work by Laura Cott will have its opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Gallery owner Natalie Brown said she was pleased to be asked to take part in the walk.
