GREAT NEWS FROM BUFFALO FOR ART LOVERS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CANADA-US BORDER

albright-knox1Art collector JEFFREY GUNDLACH has pledged to donate $42.5-million in matching funds to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in BUFFALO. The gallery’s matching funds were raised over the summer months.  Labour Day was the deadline.

albright-knox2Already one of the finest contemporary ‘American Art’ museums in the United States, the Albright-Knox will be both renovated and expanded. There will be 40,000 square-feet of new exhibition space for masterworks, an improved restaurant, educational classrooms and a cafeteria for children to have school lunches.

The Albright-Knox is a popular destination for Torontonians, so this means a lot to us too.  Congratulations to our good neighbour – BUFFALO, New York.
