First Collections From Western New York New Artists

BAM! Lab is an art portal inspired by new collections or prototype designs in the fashion and engineering industry. The vision of BAM! Lab is to introduce and highlight concepts that new artists are experimenting with and present them to our community. Throughout our virtual/physical gateway we hope that their pioneering frame of work can reach a larger audience. The art featured in BAM! Lab can be seen in a private viewing upon request in our gallery.

Seth Brauchler, Sanctuaries


Buffalo Art Movement Lab (BAM Lab) is proud to present Seth Brauchler’s debut show. Seth has mastered the watercolor medium and has a unique and modern take on it. There’s a part of Seth’s anxious mind that is always looking for an escape, which drives him to find quiet, lonely places where he can catch his breath. It guides him down silent streets, through alleys, under bridges, and behind the shells of crumbling buildings. Seth finds comfort and sanctuary in the wild, liminal spaces on the edges of urban life. In his art, he seeks to share the beauty of these interstitial spaces and the sense of peace that he finds there.


Seth often works on a small scale to create intricate spaces that capture the viewer’s attention. His work creates a sense of nostalgia and comfort in spaces often ignored.

Michael Constantine, QUESTION but Don’t Offend, 2020, 24 in x 30 in, acrylic on canvas

On grieving…

Michael Constantine’s capsule collection represents an emotional output of a man who has survived mental and physical abuse within his own community and from a country who refuses to acknowledge him as an equal. 

John Van Houten, Hall Pass, 2019, 30.125 in x 22 in, oil, acrylic and ink on board

Shadows of Our Youth

John Van Houten’s capsule collection captures the mood and psychological development of adolescents in Western New York during the 90’s. He creates a distinct and disrupted reality of scenes that look and feel like sharp photographs reminiscent of high school yearbooks. His precise brushstrokes purposely blur his work to create a sense of loss and conflict.
