Nando Alvarez-Perez, an artist and educator based in Buffalo, is the latest artist featured in the Nichols School Gallery at the Glenn and Awdry Flickinger Performing Arts Center. His exhibit, titled Eternal Flame, can be seen through April 12.
Members of the community are invited to an opening reception on Wednesday, January 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The show is free, open to the public and sponsored by the Colby Art Fund.
Alvarez-Perez is the co-founder and co-director of The Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art and Editor-in-chief of Cornelia magazine.
In describing his exhibit, Alvarez-Perez says: "Eternal Flame is an exhibition inspired by #VSCOgirls, nostalgia, and the eternal recurrence of consumer trends. Made with Nichols students in mind, the exhibition focuses on the earliest of adolescent aesthetic encounters: the whisper of the infinite in a 'stussy-S,' the grim reality of a lucky rabbit's foot, the beauty of a good boondoggle. The exhibition includes photos and drawings covered in doodles, sketches, patterns and stickers."
We hope to see you at Wednesday's reception!
