About the BSA
Since 1891, the Buffalo Society of Artists has been embracing visual exploration as critical to the voice of our time. One of the oldest continually operating arts organizations in the country, the Buffalo Society of Artists started in 1891 to promote and expand the awareness of Western New York artists—the same mission we embrace today.
We hold at least three annual exhibitions, and we provide members with lectures, workshops and studio visits throughout the year.
