Tonawanda News — Some art appreciators prefer more abstract or avant garde pieces of art, works that perhaps stem from the cutting edge creations of the likes of Andy Warhol or Jackson Pollock.
Others, like members of the Fine Arts League of Buffalo, see the importance of continuing the traditions of realism
It’s those paintings and drawings that embrace the realistic figures, still lifes and landscapes that will be on display starting Saturday at Partners in Art Gallery in North Tonawanda as part of the league’s annual spring show.
Glenna Sternin, co-owner of the gallery and show organizer, said the show will be launched Saturday with an opening reception and a chance to meet the artists from 4 to 6 p.m.
“The Fine Arts League is a really old group and it’s been dedicated to traditional art because most of the art around here is a little far out,” she said with a laugh.
