Art in Review: 3.13.09-4.3.09

Hello. Sugar City is really proud to have presented several “nontraditional” art exhibits. Part of our mission is to showcase works of art that have may not receive space from traditional sources. We are going to begin reviewing some of our past featured artists on this website. Some of our fans may not have been able to visit in awhile or even since the opening. We just want to let you know about the neat work we strive to showcase.

First Up:
Sweettalker by Tom Hughes


Tom Hughes just had a show at the Buffalo Arts Studio and was a solo-exhibitor as part of “Top Spin” at the Castellani Art Museum at Niagara University. Tom stated that the work he featured at Sugar City helped him workout the ideas that were expressed in his later shows. Tom is currently an art professor at Erie Community College and received his MFA from the University of Wisconsin in 2005. Tom’s artwork has been received international and national exposure with exhibitions in Rome, Italy, Madison, WI and at Sugar City in Buffalo, NY. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is exhibiting Tom’s work in the
regional/international biennale, Beyond/In Western New York in the Fall of 2010.
