ART EXHIBIT BY TERESA ALESSANDRA
January 15 - February 28, 2018
Teresa Alessandra is a local artist as well as an aspiring writer and entrepreneur, who has lived in Buffalo all her life. She graduated summa cum laude from Canisius College in 2013 with Bachelor's Degree in English and Creative Writing, as well as a Minor in Studio Art.
Her artwork can be recognized from various galleries, cafes, and festivals around the city (Including Spot Coffee, Ashker's Juice Bar and Cafe, Parables Gallery, and the Glen Park Art Festival)--and she is very thankful to add The Jewish Community Center to that list! Her current collection of work utilizes a specialized acrylic paint, which is poured and layered on a perfectly flat, level canvas, and then left to dry for four to six weeks (a technique which she has been developing and perfecting for the past several years). Her inspiration for these pieces is the feelings of spontaneity, freedom, and joy which she feels while she is creating them. She hopes those who view them feel the same way!
