As it has done for the past four years, the Gallery is waiving admission fees for Erie County residents, from March 29 to April 5.  The free week is timed to coincide with spring break to encourage students and their families to attend. 

Be sure to stop at the Admission Desk to check in.

This is what you'll get to see at the Gallery:

"We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85," through May 27. This show takes on the work of late 20th century black women whose work merges political activism and artistic experimentation.

"Introducing Tony Conrad: A Retrospective," through May 27. The late Buffalo art legend and University at Buffalo media study professor is the focus of this sprawling retrospective, which captures the myriad phases and influences of Conrad's career.

"Picturing Niagara," through Aug. 5. You can practically hear the rumbling rapids of the Niagara River in this century-spanning display of paintings and photographs exploring the beauty and power of Niagara Falls.

"Matisse and the Art of Jazz," through June 17. The master artist's portfolio of prints created with paper and scissors explores themes of war and creativity. It emerged from a period later in his life, when he was unable to paint but still needed to satisfy his creative impulses.

"Ingrid Olson: Forehead and Brain," through June 17. A collection of photographs and sculptural reliefs from this young artist are on view in the Albright-Knox's Gallery for Small Sculpture.
