The Letter: An American Town and The "Somali Invasion”

Directed by Syrian-American director Ziad H. Hamzeh, this searing documentary was made in 2003, but could not be more timely and urgent in our current political environment – and disturbingly familiar. Called by Variety “an especially dramatic work of polemical reportage on racism in America,” this riveting documentary chronicles the arrival of 1,100 newly arrived Somali refugees in the overwhelmingly white town of Lewiston in Maine, the whitest state in the U.S. The town became infamous for the public letter penned by the mayor telling Somalis to stop coming to the town, which made international headlines. The climax of the film is a harrowing rally held by out-of-town neo-Nazi white supremacists against the newcomers and a counter-demonstration of nearly 4,000 of its residents supporting ethnic and cultural diversity. Sadly, a majority of this largely working-class part of the state favored Trump in 2016 and still hold onto stereotypes and anti-refugee myths, even while some residents now acknowledge that refugees helped revitalize their dying town.
4th Friday @ Buffalo Art Studio

(Suite #500) 5:00 – 8:00

Free admission to the gallery and gift shop on the fourth
Friday of the month. Opening receptions include artist talks
at 6:00 pm. Refreshments will include donation based wine
and beer as well as delicious offerings provided by Ashker’s.
Join us on M&T Fourth Friday January 25, 2019 for the opening of "Amalgams" by Lee Hoag; the opening reception will run from 5-8pm, with the artists speaking about their work promptly at 6pm.

Hoag’s work expands upon traditional ideas of assemblage sculpture. He works with collected objects to create new, unexpected forms. He chooses objects for their organic forms and couples them with language to evoke subconscious associations within the viewer. Well dosed with mystery, humor, and innuendo—both sacred and profane—Hoag’s sculptures conjure up the unimaginable within viewers. His work transforms everyday objects into charged psychic forms.

"Amalgams" will be on view at Buffalo Arts Studio from January 25, 2019 - March 2, 2019.
Also on Friday January 25, 2019 is the opening of "From the Core" by Sheila Barcik.

Sheila Barcik explores life, existence, and the existential experiences of searching and surviving in the contemporary world. Barcik constructs grids of single sheet drawings, each presenting a unique space in time. Together, the small works forms new images that flow from one moment to the next. The unsettling landscapes function as a cryptic schematic, populated with figurative and symbolic forms that are both familiar and foreign. Barcik invites the viewer to wander slowly through this ambivalent environment, taking time with each individual drawing as well as the full installation.

"From the Core" will be on view at Buffalo Arts Studio from January 25, 2019 - March 2, 2019.

 A new navigation app has been has been developed for Tri-Main Center, created by Twisted Rope, a tenant in the building. A new navigation touchscreen, installed in the lobby, will provide directional information. With these new additions, we plan to make it easier for visitors to the building to navigate through the hallways to tenant offices. In the App, users will be able to find specific information about tenants.
Zone markers will be placed throughout the building, on each floor, that are used for navigation. Once you have downloaded the app, pick the desired location in the building from the menu. Press the red arrow button. Select the zone nearest you. A floor plan will appear, showing you how to get to your destination. Select stairs or elevator.  
We look forward to sharing this with our visitors, tenants and their clients.
