Urban renewal projects are integral for cities to flourish, but they often come with the erasure of artful historic details. Hosted by Episcopal Senior Life Communities, "Architectural Salvage" is an exhibit of prints, etchings, lithographs, and serigraphs by Katherine Baca-Bielinis, a California native and RIT graduate, that focuses on preserving the beauty in architectural elements. In her first solo exhibition, Baca-Bielinis has created a cohesive body of work, exploring how different printmaking art forms interact with each other — all while highlighting often overlooked and discarded classical architectural details.
"Architectural Salvage" runs through Sunday, August 20, at 1570 Gallery at Valley Manor, 1570 East Avenue. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and is wheelchair accessible. Admission is free. For more information, call 442-8470.
