Castellani hosts exhibition opening reception for “Biological Regionalism: Niagara River, Western New York” by Alberto Rey on Thursday
Celebrate the exhibition opening of “Biological Regionalism: Niagara River, Western New York” by Alberto Rey, which explores the complexities of the Niagara River past and present.
Utilizing lushly illustrated narratives, Rey capitalizes on his unique visual language to speak to the importance of the Niagara River in American popular culture and how this has changed over time.
These nine large-scale paintings reflect the River’s historical significance to the Underground Railroad, Native American culture, and the pollution of both the River and communities along its bank.
Light refreshments will be served. RSVP required.
4–6 p.m. | Reception for CAM Members and Niagara University Community
6–8 p.m. | Reception for the general public
