Erin Morris Photography exhibition “Grain Elevators” is on view  at (716) GAL-LERY, May 1 – July 31, 2016. The (716) GAL-LERY  is a repurposed 1950’s era telephone booth, now Buffalo’s smallest art gallery located inside the Hydraulic Hearth Restaurant & Brewery.

As a photographer, and a native of Western New York, Erin is drawn to many things… the history and architecture of the city of Buffalo in particular… the grain silos of Buffalo specifically. Her body of work explores the grain silos on Buffalo’s waterfront – from the gentle giants themselves, to the minutiae that reflects their storied past. Her photos work to capture the beauty contained in what was once an incredibly influential time in Buffalo’s history.
