Curated by Laura McGough

Rewind: Buffalo Video Art 1985-1995 celebrates the lively media scene that erupted in Buffalo during the 1980s and early 1990s. At turns performative, political and playful, the videos featured in this program serve to partially document an immensely productive era in Buffalo's media history. Rewind includes work by Fred Bacher, Don Bernier, Kevin Fix, Richard Wicka, Armin Heurich, Chris Hill, Richard Kegler, Cheryl Jackson, George Scherer, John Saxe, and more.

Laura McGough has had a diverse career as an educator, curator, critic and grants administrator, working at organizations ranging from Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center to the National Endowment for the Arts. Along the way, she organized exhibitions, screenings, Webcasts, and performances for arts organizations in the U.S., Australia, Canada, and Europe; published critical writing on the visual arts, media arts and new media; participated in numerous local, regional, and national grants panels; and received funding from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Canada Council, and the British Council to support varied curatorial initiatives. She is currently completing a PhD in the Department of Media Study, SUNY University at Buffalo.

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet

Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
