The Kenan Center Gallery will present METACORPORATE: ART FROM INDUSTRY, an exhibit of 2- and 3-dimensional works from corporate, private, and non-profit collections, Sunday through June 26.

The exhibit will open with a public reception from 2 - 5 p.m. Sunday. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, noon - 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 2 - 5 p.m. The Gallery will be closed May 22, Memorial Day weekend, May 28-30, as well as Saturdays, June 11 through June 25. The Gallery will be open for special hours during 100 American Craftsmen, June 4, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and June 5, noon - 4 p.m.

The exhibit will feature more than 60 pieces including 14 originally owned by the Carborundum Corporation and now in the collection of the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara Falls; 11 pieces by noted Niagara Falls artist, Polly King; and additional works from the Niagara County Historical Society, New York Power Authority,  YWCA of Niagara, and Eastern Niagara Hospital. In addition to King, some of the artists represented include former Lockportians, Joseph Whalen, William Storrs, and Olivia McConnell; and contemporary watercolor artist Katheen Giles and photographer Paul Pasquarello. The works from the Carborundum collection include numerous international artists such as Max Bill (Swiss); Louise Nevelson (American born in Russia); and Barbara Hepworth (British); as well as sculptors Constantino Nivola (Italian); James Rosati (American), Seymour Lipton (American), and Suzanne Pascal (American).

The exhibit was inspired by “Art from Industry IV,” an exhibit held at the Kenan Center in 1969 which featured 36 works from such notable Buffalo corporations as American Standard, the Kittinger Company, Hooker Chemical, and Marine Midland Bank.
