BUFFALO, NY (WKBW/RELEASE) -- A new website, launched in May by Artists in Buffalo, Inc., highlights the breadth and depth of the visual arts scene in Western New York by providing extensive listings of artists, and galleries.

Visitors to the site at artistsinbuffalo.org are able to search by creative medium, name, or by location. Individual listings feature images, descriptions and contact information, and are provided free to AIB members, thanks to a generous grant from the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation. The site also contains a calendar featuring arts-related events that can be augmented by AIB members.

Artists in Buffalo Inc., a 501(c) 3 organization, was formed in 2001 and is dedicated to building connections within the visual arts community and the Western New York region. Their mission is to support, promote and increase the visibility of regional artists, galleries, and museums and to support the Buffalo Niagara region in its quest to be identified as a strong cultural center and its emergence as an arts destination.
