Sun. Cloud. Twig. Star. Flower. Moon. Charles Burchfield’s work explores the beautiful nuances of nature. Tiny details become recurring themes, symbols of deeper meanings. In the same spirit, the Burchfield Penney 2015 Art Auction & Gala celebrates the many facets of the art and artists of Western New York. Join us at The Center, Saturday, September 19 from 5pm until 11pm, for a very special evening with friends. Begin with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails provided by The Premier Group. Bid on Silent Auction items featuring works by more than 80 regional artists.
