Discover the artistic and creative talents of some of Buffalo’s newest residents at this exhibit by Stitch Buffalo, a not-for-profit organization that teaches refugee women stitching and embroidering skills. “Creative Journeys: Celebrating the Art of Refugee Women in Western New York” explores the textile traditions these women carried with them from Bhutan, Burma, Nepal, Thailand, Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Peru, Bangladesh, Somalia, and beyond. The exhibit opening, located on the museum’s second floor, will feature a hands-on embroidery workshop and a meet-and-greet with the artists.
