The Dolce Valvo Art Center at Niagara County Community College will present “Vulnerability and the Child Within”, a mixed media installation by local artist Gary Wolfe, January 26 – February 23, 2012 on the Sanborn campus of the college.
Artist Gary Wolfe earned undergraduate degrees in Christian Ministries from Houghton College and in Psychology from the State University of New York at Buffalo. While working for local government in planning, developing and delivering health and human services to persons in need, Gary began producing and publicly showing his artwork with encouraging success. This ultimately led to a return to school and the completion of a Master’s Degree in Painting and Art History from the University of Buffalo. Gary’s work has been shown in Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, Ann Arbor, Buffalo, Rochester and other cities in the Northeast. Gary is the current president of the Buffalo Society of Artists and lives and works in Western New York.
