Charles Burchfield's notes and sketches at the Burchfield Penney Art Center

An excellent new Charles Burchfield exhibit at the Burchfield-Penney Art Center is a portrait of the artist In His Own Words. From his struggles with Army life to his artistic struggles with himself in the creation of his masterpieces, he wrote it all down—or a lot of it, enough of it—in scribbles and notes to himself that are pithy and poetic and more than occasionally grim.

Remembering Olga Bajusova, 1954-2012

Born and educated in Slovakia, and long iconic in her home country, Olga Bajusova was an award-winning illustrator of more than 30 children’s books, as well as a noted printmaker, exhibiting in Italy, Portugal, Romania, Canada, Japan, and the United States. The C. G. Jung Center mounted an exhibition of her etchings in organic abstractions in October 2011. Her prolific output of book illustrations and prints were displayed at the Western New York Book Arts Center in conjunction with a special screening of her animation The Christmas Wizard, a Central European holiday classic, at Squeaky Wheel in the winter of 2010.
