Paul Knight ’21 Featured in New Canisius Art Exhibit

The Canisius College Communication Department and ArtCanisius invite you to visit a photography exhibit, “Hidden Locations in Plain Sight,” featuring photographs by local artist and alumnus Paul Knight.  The exhibit is displayed in the Alumni Gallery at Canisius College.  A reception celebrating Knight’s work will be held from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, inside the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library. The event and exhibit are free and open to the public.  

On his website, Knight describes his work this way: “Viewing a captured image is compared to looking through the lens of someone else’s eyes. Each image tells a different story, leaving the audience to question its true meaning or the feeling it conveys. My images capture these feelings and also spark wonder.”

Knight is a 2021 graduate of the Digital Media Arts and Communication Studies programs at Canisius. His work has been featured on the Vogue Italia website as well as in  Pump, Lifestyle, Lyun, and Intra magazines.  He also created social media content for Calvin Klein. The exhibit features 15 carefully selected photographic works. 

To inquire about purchasing a print of one of these images or his other work, please contact Paul at or visit his website at or follow him on Instagram @Paullknight

For more information about the event, please contact Melissa Wanzer at or at 716-888-2119.
