Gallery Josephine @ The Show

Resource:Art (R:A) is constantly pushing the boundaries of art, as it continues to explore new opportunities for artists and host venues. Founded by Buffalo-based gallerists Elisabeth Samuels and Emily Tucker in 2014, R:A’s cultural footprint can be found throughout WNY. Now, their latest adventure takes them to South Buffalo, where they will be setting up shop at Shea’s Seneca.

Founded in 2014 and led by gallerist duo Elisabeth Samuels and Emily Tucker, Buffalo-based Resource:Art has provided fine art consulting services with the mission of increasing local artists’ visibility.*

Similar to prior undertakings, where Samuels and Tucker quite literally took the show on the road, the pair have found a new home away from home at… The Show – the event center at Shea’s Seneca. It is there that they will participate in curating and exhibiting rotating works of art at the new gallery space, which is being called Gallery Josephine in honor of the wife of the famed former theater’s creator Michael Shea.

“Much like our gallery project Raft of Sanity on Buffalo’s West Side we feel especially excited to be part of a neighborhood on the rise,” said Tucker, who is co-founder of R:A, a fine art consulting firm.

Samuels and Tucker recognized the creative possibilities when they were approached by the founders of The Show at Shea’s Seneca with the opportunity to coordinate dynamic displays in the recently restored historic space.*

Gallery Josephine joins a number of other esteemed enterprises at Shea’s Seneca, including Public Espresso, Bottle Rocket Beer, and Cookies and Cream. This latest infusion of fine art will go a long way towards helping to establish the venue as a culturally-significant artistic mecca in South Buffalo.

The grand opening of Gallery Josephine will be held on Thursday April 27 from 6:00–8:00 pm and is open to the public. Visitors will have a chance to view gorgeous renovations to the space along with the gallery’s inaugural exhibition all while enjoying refreshments and a cash bar. 

Shea’s Seneca is located at 2188 Seneca Street. You can visit Gallery Josephine on Facebook.
