Sally Cook, 1960-Present  

Known in the region as a painter of dynamic scenery, intimate portraits of friends, and sumptuous still life, Buffalo-born Sally Cook has been a vital part of the arts community in Western New York since her early years as a student at the Albright Art School. This survey of six decades of work brings together major paintings from her earliest abstract canvas dating 1960 to the most recent figurative works. The exhibition also highlights her work as a poet and poetic inspirations from such figures as Emily Dickinson. Programs will be organized by UB Arts Collaboratory in partnership with UB faculty from the departments of English, Art and Media Study.
