Larkin Square Author Series is pleased to welcome Buffalo native Nancy Reisman back to Buffalo and to her first appearance at the Larkin Square Author Series. She will be speaking about her new novel, trompe l’oeil  on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at 5:30 pm in the Larkin Square Filling Station.

trompe loeil-cover-CMYK-2The New York Times wrote in a review of trompe l’oeil, “Genuinely satisfying, heart-shaking novels combine an absolute narrative authority with an apparently effortless style. You question nothing, savor every phrase and nuance, live willingly within their pages from the first word to the last. They can also be slippery things: impossible to wrap up or pin down. Just read it, you urge the uninitiated, already envying them the experience to come. Nancy Reisman’s second novel, “Trompe L’Oeil,” is one such book.” Read More

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paintings tell the story of calling up one’s artistic heroes on foreign pay phones, having said heroes answer via cool outdated communication devices, and then getting together for a drink and/or dessert to converse about all the nuances of painting.
