For the past four years, each holiday season Resource:Art has hosted, All Wrapped Up - a party with a purpose!
This has definitely become the year of the pivot. We've all had to adapt and reinvent, but our intention to support local artists when they need it most, and at the same time provide an opportunity to add an amazing curated piece of contemporary art to your collection has remained strong.
PLAY/GROUND is a platform for site-specific installations by contemporary artists.
ART IS A POWERFUL TOOL. IT CAN DRAW ATTENTION TO VITAL ISSUES, IT CAN BRING JOY WHEN TIMES FEEL DESPERATE, AND IT CAN BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER WHEN WE FEEL MOST DIVIDED.
In Search of Signs of Life & Art
It all began in Italy, where musicians performed impromptu concerts from their balconies.
Inspired by artists across the world, including cities in Spain, Germany and NewYork, we are proposing Buffalo's version - "Proximity: In Search of Signs of Life & Art".
A Virtual Exhibition to Assist the Arts Community
Resource:Art's hearts and minds are overwhelmed as the affects and uncertainties of this pandemic continue to unfold.
As art spaces and their events are put on hold, and economic futures seem uncertain, we are looking for ways to bring attention & assistance to our strong arts community.

Eminent Part 3: Jackie Felix
500 Seneca St, Buffalo, NY

A solo exhibition of work by Joseph Piccillo, the first in the "Eminent" series. Piccillo’s skillful realizations of horses and figures in motion are featured in this, the first exhibition of the artist’s work in almost a decade. Piccillo employs humble materials creating powerful, and dramatic renderings, breathtaking in their scale and mastery.
