The Sierra Vista Herald featured Buffalo Exchange's Arts Award Recipient

The Sierra Vista Herald featured Buffalo Exchange and the 2013 Buffalo Exchange Visual Arts Award recipient in “Buffalo Exchange honors Bisbee artist” on January 17, 2014: “Buffalo Exchange, a privately owned, family-operated fashion resale retailer based in Tucson, will honor Brenna Curry, a metal artist with the Vixen Fine Art Metal Gallery in Bisbee, as the recipient of the 2013 Buffalo Exchange Visual Arts Award … award funded by the Buffalo Exchange Fund for the Arts. Held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, the Buffalo Exchange Fund for the Arts has awarded more than $160,000 to individuals in the Southern Arizona art community since 1994. Curry’s metal works are mostly on stainless steel, where she incorporates exposed metal under the paint that gives a holographic feeling. … Nominators of potential recipients can remain anonymous. This year, the person who nominated Curry cited her tenacity, perseverance, and willingness to stay true to herself and her art. … Each year, candidates for Buffalo Exchange’s Visual Arts Award are nominated and selected by two panels of experts who are familiar with the Southern Arizona arts scene. The focus of the award changes from one year to the next, highlighting important contributors to the arts, or emerging artists in the visual arts and performing arts – ones that are not necessarily well known but who are showing great promise in fulfilling the highest standards of excellence.”
