Members Show at Western New York Book Arts Center

Art books and wall-mounted artworks of various genres and media grace the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative Members’ Exhibit at the Book Arts Center.

Intricate Works at the Burchfield Penney Art Center

Overabundance of Detail is primarily an exhibition of architectural intention, especially in those works that are, in fact, architecturally modeled in the finished state. It would be interesting to see the first sketch, the immediate recording of an idea, in order to pose the question, aside from all inspiration and spontaneity: Does the idea create its own form or does the form follow its own rules?

Works From the Gerald Mead Collection at Castellani Art Museum

Gerald Mead was the always-helpful staff member at the Burchfield Penney Art Center when it was located at Rockwell Hall in the early 1990s. I took my senior dementia day-care group there on field trips. Over the years I often met him at art openings. He is a genuinely respected artist, writer, curator, and collector. Through mutual friends we are now connected on Facebook. Despite all this, I have never taken the opportunity to view his collection at one of the many venues to which he has lent or given works over the years.
