El Buen Amigo uses arts as a vehicle to inspire cross-cultural understanding, making the rich cultural heritage of Latin America accessible to everyone via educational and cultural programming, as well as our fair trade storefront. LACA operates as a non-profit organization, where all of the profits earned from our store and outreach events are reinvested in the communities of Central and South America.

The association is based in El Buen Amigo, our fair trade storefront located in the heart of the Allentown district in Buffalo, NY. El Buen Amigo offers our customers fair trade arts, crafts, clothing and coffee direct from artisans and farmers in Latin America. We obtain beautiful handcrafted items from artisans in Central and South America, and the Caribbean, for fair prices. In this way, we help provide impoverished individuals from developing countries with a living income and the opportunity tomaintain a sustainable lifestyle for them and their families. It is also our mission to showcase to the North American public the beauty and the value of Latino culture, a resilient culture that has overcome the greatest tests of slavery, poverty, war and segregation.

LACA also hosts in our gallery space a variety of activities and events which promote cultural awareness in an attempt to connect our Buffalo community with those overseas. We offer a Cultural Extension Program to Western New York school and youth groups in an attempt to open a dialogue and broaden their cultural awareness. Our gallery space hosts art, music and cultural events in an effort to provide Buffalo artists with a warm and welcoming place to showcase their own creations.
El Buen Amigo is located at 114 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, NY. Click here for directions

464 Gallery presents Nirvana

464 Gallery celebrates turning two years old with an art opening that asks local artists to explore love and enlightenment: what brings them to their personal state of Nirvana.


The opening will include works by local artists: Amanda Maciuba, Candace Keegan, Karen Brady, Salvatore Scrivo, Phil Durgan, Tamora Lee Beckman, Marcus L. Wise, Tara Sasiadek, Jeremy Maxwell, and others.

464 will also be expanding their jewelry collection so that no one will be caught empty handed this coming Valentine’s Day.

Nirvana, for the third year running will reprise their interactive arts installation What's in Your Heart which debuted at their grand opening in 2009 and has since become a popular component of their anniversary events: each visitor cuts out a paper heart and writes what they love on it. Each heart is hung in the display windows of the gallery for the duration of the show’s run.

Over the past year, 464 has hosted over 80 art openings and events, has better than tripled their membership and has represented more than 250 local artists. 464 Gallery has also acted as home base to the newly formed Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo, who along with 464, created the mural at the corner of Grant and Amherst Streets.
