Buffalo Exchange Becomes a Gallery With New Showcase of Local Art

Last night, Buffalo Exchange kicked off its first artist showcase, hosting a reception for local artists Justin Allen, Lucy Kirkman and Paul Windle. Art lines the upper walls of the neon blue resale shop, and each artist had a table near the front door and was eager to discuss the showcased art. Buffalo Exchange stayed open until 9 p.m. -- that's an hour later than normal -- and the staff encouraged shoppers and art-seekers alike to browse, help themselves to complimentary snacks and simply have a good time. The store will display works from different local artists every couple of months, and this particular exhibit will be on display until August 6, according to their website.
