Seal - 2022 - Buffalo Society of Artists

Since 1891, the Buffalo Society of Artists has been building on a legacy—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 exhibitions a year, including:

  • A Catalogue Exhibition
  • An Open Members’ Exhibition
  • An alternative exhibition

We also provide members with lectures, workshops and studio visits throughout the year.
