  • The current exhibit, Anthony McCall: Dark Rooms, Solid Light, is excellent. Going into some of the cones of light convey a feeling of being transported into a different dimension. Very cool. Museum staff are all friendly and helpful. Exhibit also works well for anyone needing a wheelchair for access (which are available at no charge at the museum).
  • This is a wonderful gallery. There is always an interesting show for different tastes in art. It's not a bad drive from Toronto & esp from Niagara Falls it's just a short one. The area around the gallery is great too with cafes & restaurants not far in Elmwood Village & Delaware Park right across. Worth the drive!!
  • The upcoming remodeling / two year closing of Albright Knox art gallery this coming November has made the trip less than worth the time. Most of the great works have been packed up in participation leaving a huge part of the gallery with s less than inspirational study of light and dark by Artist (?) Anthony McCall. Called Dark rooms, Solid Light. Way to little in the way of mental/ emotional stimulation. Hopefully better exhibits will show upon the reopening in two to three years.
  • Really a quality over quantity experience! They might have a small collection but every piece is fantastic. Went while they were in between rotating exhibits so it was not as full an experience as it could be, but I was constantly surprised by the big name artists they have as part of their regular collection. If you are a reciprocal member or even just an art lover you owe it to your self to check this gallery out!
  • Great. As expected. Only downside is they're expanding/renovating, so most of their permanent collection has been put away from public eyes. Too bad. However, the current show Dark Rooms, Solid Light is fantastic. Beaming you to other ethereal realms.
