The Western NY Book Arts Collaborative Grand Opening and Member’s Exhibition opens with a reception on May 21, 2009 at
468 Washington St. in Downtown Buffalo. The Members’ Exhibition is open to current, renewing, and new members of WNYBAC. Just who are the WNYBAC? “The WNY Book Arts Collaborative exists to promote, encourage and develop Printing & Book related Arts through education and access for individual artists and underserved communities. Through active programs such as lectures, workshops and exhibitions, all facets of the printed word and image — printmaking, papermaking, illustration, design, writing, binding — can be explored and made accessible to the public as viewer and participant.” The organization has very clear goals and vision, already has a publishing program, and are situating themselves in the center of the printing community in Western New York. There’s much going on at WNYBAC.
