Paintings by Michael Killelea the Buffalo Niagara Visitors Center

Top Down, Side to Side

When downtown, take what free time you may find to make your way to the Buffalo Niagara Visitors Center in the Market Arcade building. After getting your parking pass and placing it on the dashboard of your vehicle, proceed to the gallery. There you will find of pleasantly well-modulated watercolor vignettes of Buffalo and outlying environs, especially Elma, a still nearly rural community just this side of East Aurora. These brightly brushed scenes by Michael Killelea are reminiscent of travel post cards immediately recognizable for their representational clarity—pleasing views of fondly familiar vantage points along the downtown corridors, waterfront, and county countryside, complete with thoughtful narrative paragraphs. On view through October 27.
