January 13, 2016

An exhibition of small paintings by artist Sara M. Zak opens in (716)GAL-LERY on Saturday January 30, 2016 and runs through the end of April.

The initial inspiration for this series of small oil paintings by Sara M. Zak was the gallery where they would be exhibited: (716)GAL-LERY, Buffalo’s smallest gallery, a phone booth inside The Hydraulic Hearth Restaurant & Brewery.  The paintings tell the story of calling up one’s artistic heroes on foreign pay phones, having said heroes answer via cool outdated communication devices, and then getting together for a drink and/or dessert to converse about all the nuances of painting.
