Canvas Salon and Gallery presents The Artwork of Anne Valby exhibit opening
celebration on Saturday April 22nd from 6pm – 7:30pm at Canvas Salon & Gallery
located 9500 Main Street Clarence in the Willow Square Plaza.
Anne Valby’s insatiable desire to create is expressed with whatever materials happen to be at hand. She opened and operated “Buffalo Soldier” in the Clarence area for several years and has designed and decorated restaurants from Western New York to Crested Butte, CO. Valby also designs and builds reclaimed barn wood furniture.
The nature of Valby’s work presents something of a departure for Canvas, and some unique challenges. “With most of our exhibits, the artists simply deliver their works and we hang them,” said Jaime Brawdy, owner and of Canvas and its exhibit curator. “With Anne’s work, it will definitely be more of an installation. We’ll be working through the night to get the exhibit ready.”
The event is free and open to the public at Canvas from 6pm – 7:30pm. Complimentary appetizers, wine and beer will served by Penny Lane Café, and attendees will also be treated to an avant-garde fashion show reflective of the artist’s pieces on exhibit.
An after party event starts at 8:00pm at Penny Lane Cafe located on Main Street in Clarence just a few blocks from Canvas. The after party event is a pre-sale ticketed event and reservations are required in advance. Tickets are $25 and include a buffet menu preview, live music with Shawn Duchscherer and a cash bar with drink specials. Tickets are available at Penny Lane Cafe and Canvas Salon & Gallery during business hours.
The opening promises to be a truly interactive, interesting evening, with a chance to meet the artist and get a first view of pieces available for purchase. Anne Valby’s work will be on exhibit at Canvas Salon & Gallery through the end of June 2017.
