Velo Visions: Bike-Themed Art
Exhibit on view May 6- June 2

GObike Buffalo and Sugar City are partnering for Buffalo Bike Month in May to present an exhibition focusing on the art of biking. We are asking all bicycle-loving artists and artistically-inclined bicyclists to submit original works in any medium to showcase the beauty of cycling. Artists may submit works with depictions of bicycles and bike culture to objects made of bicycles and bicycle parts.

The exhibition will be on view at Sugar City (1239 Niagara St) from May 6 to June 3, with a closing reception on Thursday, June 2, from 7:30 to 9:30pm. Gallery hours are Fridays 5:30 to 7:30pm, during all events, and by appointment.

Participating artists: Aimee Buyea, Chris Nicolai, Dmitry Gudkov, Joe George, Matthew Holsinger, Nathaniel Hill, Rebecca Gay, Sarah Doueck, Sarah Fonzi & Yann Spindler
