Zach Boehler is a young Buffalo-artist who doesn’t let the grass grow under his feet. Like any smart person embarking on a career, Boehler has totally immersed himself in his field, acquiring skills, awards, perspective, and professional contacts along the way. Besides finishing up his masters degree in art education at Buffalo State College, Boehler has been a full-time arts instructor for the Ashford Hollow Foundation, which owns and operates Griffis Sculpture Park and the Essex Arts Center. He is also very active with downtown’s Soundlab, as well as can be seen attending artistic functions throughout the city. This young man understands that with hard work and being humble, comes opportunities.
Here is an opportunity Boehler has earned; debuting his second solo show in Buffalo.
Saturday, July 23 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Boehler will be opening his solo show “There has to be Another Way out of This F. Scott” at the Big Orbit Gallery on Essex Street. By attending this show, you certainly would be supporting an artist who is working hard to make an impact, not only on his own career, but making an imprint in Buffalo’s art scene.
The title of the show is in referenced to the great literary figures of the Lost Generation, including the Queen City’s own F. Scott Fitzgerald and the iconic Ernest Hemingway. Through the creation of sculpture and painting, Boehler “examines the condition the individual faces in the built environment.”
