Exhibition continues through April 29.

Hallwalls presents the seventh AND FINAL part of its series Amid/In Western New York, regional survey exhibitions curated by John Massier, Kyle Butler, and Rebecca Wing. Amid/In is a research-heavy project centered on the studio visit process, clustered in tight succession, and with artists/works selected in the month leading up to the exhibition's opening. It has no specific theme and is seeking to root out whatever people have going on at this moment. It is a casual survey, intensely-wrought.

The range of work represented in Part Seven is indicative of the diverse approaches represented throughout the project—drawings by Barbara Buckman and Lily Booth, sculptures by Gary Sczerbaniewicz, knitted sculptures by Kurt Treeby, paintings by Annie Dunsky and Mary Begley, digital drawings by Laura Brothers, a wall drawing by Fotini Galanes, sculpturally encased videos by Phil Hastings, and drawing and sculpted work by Colleen Buzzard.

From November 2014 through February 2016, a total of 202 studio visits were undertaken and, through the final exhibition of the series, 66 regional artists will have had their work exhibited through almost 300 separate works.

To date, the following artists have been included in the survey:

Liz Bayan • Adrian Bertolone • Laura Borneman • Marie-Claire Bozant • Jay Carrier • Caitlin Cass • Emily Churco • Charles Clough • Denton Crawford • Benjamin Entner • Dorothy Fitzgerald • Flatsitter • Martin Freeman • Pam Glick • Bobby Griffiths • Kate Gaudy • Mickey harmon • Adele Henderson • Billy Huggins • George Hughes • Richard Huntington • Kyla Kegler • Pat Kewley • Kevin Kline • Bethany Krull • Mark Lavatelli • Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge • Todd Lesmeister • Liz Lessner • Joan Linder • Scott McCarney • Ian McCrohan • Brian Milbrand • Benjamin Minter • David Mitchell • Julian Montague • Tommy Nguyen • Eileen Pleasure • J Tim Raymond • Nicholas Ruth • David Schirm • Jason Seeley • Peter Sowiski • Peter Stephens • Rodney Taylor • Marissa Tirone • Marc Tomko • Allen Topolski • Jeff Vincent • virocode • Alfonso Volo • Kurt Von Voetsch • Necole Zayatz
