The Gallery

at Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village


Mission Statement 

The Gallery at BNHV will present artwork for the encouragement and development of artistic expression, and to foster greater appreciation for art. It will strengthen and sustain our community by creating a place where people of every background can foster connections among artists and the public, to ignite the creative spirit and be touched by art.

Guidelines and Policies  

Exhibitions in The Gallery are a program sponsored by the Town of Amherst, NY, and managed by the Curatorial department of BNHV. The Gallery invites artists living or working in Western NY to submit proposals for exhibits.  Due to space limitations, only work that can be hung on the gallery’s rod and hook system and does not exceed 15 pounds is eligible.

Apply to Exhibit 

  • Proposals must be mailed and digital images must be emailed to curator@bnhv.org No slides or photographs will be accepted. Read and follow all proposal guidelines in their entirety. Incomplete proposals will not be accepted.
  • Include a numbered image list with artist, date of artwork, medium, and size (height by width) and a simple layout of the installation proposal.
  • The Exhibition Committee of BNHV reviews all applications, approves all artworks for exhibitions, and determines the exhibition schedule. You will be notified by email of your exhibit dates. Submitting a proposal does not guarantee being selected for exhibition, and the panel may reject any application.
  • Exhibitions are published on BNHV website and fb page. Any other publicity is strictly the responsibility of the exhibiting artist.
