Building on Burchfield
The Burchfield Penney Art Center's permanent collection spans the late 19th century through today, and includes the world's largest collection of works by acclaimed watercolorist Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967), as well as the artist's journals, which provide unique insight into his style and process. The permanent collection also includes work from more than 800 other artists who, like Burchfield, are indelibly connected to the Western New York landscape.
To learn more about our permanent collection, we invite you to visit the Burchfield Penney.
