Franklin LaVoie

Deciphering the Enchanted Landscape of Buffalo-Niagara

Deciphering the Enchanted Landscape of Buffalo-Niagara is an intriguing 90-minute PowerPoint presentation featuring bits and pieces of local history, geology, archeology, folklore, and Native American myths and legends, as well as startling insights into surveyor and city planner Joseph Ellicott's "Radial Street Grid" (1804) and Frederick Law Olmsted's "Integrated Parks System" (1868). For 22 years, theatrical artist and puppeteer Franklin LaVoie has been "illuminating the past to enlighten the future," promoting a renaissance in the Buffalo-Niagara region.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
