What Villa’s All About

Villa Maria College is a private, co-educational, Catholic college providing students with the premier student-centered experience in Western New York. Students learn and grow with a culturally diverse population that lives its ideals of truth, charity, and unity.

With a variety of academic programs, our real strength lies in our studio-based education, a 8:1 student to faculty ratio, and educators who bring their real world experience into the classroom. Our faculty consists of working artists, animators, musicians, writers and designers who all place a heavy emphasis on teaching students how to use their talents in real world experiences.

Facade @ Starlight Studio and Art Gallery
Apr 28 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Façade is a group exhibition of mixed-media works created by art students from Villa Maria College. Students were challenged to make work that examines the concept of identity using materials and methods unlike those learned/used in previous classes. Through conceptual investigation and material exploration, each artist invented a physical manifestation of what identity means.

Please join us for a one-night exhibition of these works.
