Co-Artifact is an art exhibition and silent art auction featuring artworks created collaboratively by a Starlight and a community artist, on Thursday, June 11th, 2020 from 5-8 PM at Northland Workforce Training Center at 683 Northland Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14211. The event will showcase two artworks created by each pair, music by DJ Icky Reels, and light refreshments. Other works by the Starlight artists will also be up for sale and we are featuring local fare at this event.
Co-Artifact brings 15 artists from the community and 15 Starlight artists together to create collaborative artworks. For this project, each artist is asked to create a piece of artwork in the medium and size of his or her choice. A Starlight artist and a community artist are then paired up, switch artworks, and complete the other’s work. The 30 resulting artworks will be available for the community to bid on night of the event.
All proceeds will benefit the Starlight Studio, a vibrant non-profit art studio located in downtown Buffalo that supports adults with disabilities in their artistic development. Created by the Learning Disabilities Association of Western New York (LDA of WNY) in 2005, it’s the first of its kind in WNY. Through technical assistance by professional artists and opportunities for representation, the Starlight artists hone their artistic interests; become stronger advocates, and better-integrated citizens.
