Kenan gallery hosting Amy Greenan exhibit

Niagara Gazette — A solo exhibition by artist Amy Greenan — “Greenan@Kenan” opens with an artist reception on Sunday at the Kenan Center in Lockport.

The reception is set for 2 to 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public. The show will be on exhibit through March 30 with more than 40 works on display, including a series of Greenan’s paintings featuring abandoned houses in acrylic on canvas, numerous collages, and other new works utilizing gouache.

Greenan was born and raised in Western New York. She studied at SUNY Purchase (BFA, 1993), and the University at Buffalo (MFA, 2007). Her first post-graduate solo show took place at Niagara University’s Castellani Art Museum in 2009. It was part of the TopSpin series, introducing emerging artists; the show brought her to the attention of serious collectors and institutions.

Her artwork has since been shown internationally, and has been accessioned into the permanent collections of the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, the Gibson Gallery at SUNY Potsdam, and the Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, Kan. Greenan works and lives in Niagara Falls.

“The Kenan Center is especially excited to present Amy Greenan’s artwork,” said Susan Przybyl, executive director of the Center. “Amy is a rising talent. The Kenan Center Gallery is a perfect venue in which to showcase her diverse artistic strengths.”

Greenan is represented by Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary. Said Brownrout, “This is a great opportunity to view an extensive selection of Amy’s artwork. It is her most comprehensive exhibition to date.”

A Tea & Tour will be offered on at 1 p.m. on March 9. Guests will enjoy light luncheon fare, dessert, and a variety of teas followed by a tour of the exhibit with the artist. The Tea & Tour, with limited seating, is $20 per person; reservations are required. Call 433-2617 or visit the Kenan Center, 433 Locust Street, Lockport.

  • NAD third person.jpg REVIEW: Meandering melodrama "Third Person," is structured like "Crash." Lightning doesn't strike twice for writer-director Paul Haggis with "Third Person," a meandering melodrama that is structured exactly like his "Crash," which undeservedly won the 2006 Academy Award for best picture over the much better "Brokeback Mountain." Haggis again tries to juggle multiple storylines, but this time the plot threads unravel and nothing we see or hear is very engaging.
