Special Event | Buffalo Night in The Museum Store
Presented by The MuseumStore and Burchfield's Cafe
Thursday, December 20, 2012, 5–9 pm
Attention All Buffalo Boosters!! This is the night you have been waiting for…a chance to purchase Holiday gifts for anyone who loves the Queen City! The museum store is “Talking Proud” about their many unique and distinctive items that feature our great city.
Bruce Verbeck will be showing his unique glass Buffalo plaques and light catchers while Karen Matchette will be featuring her pen and ink architectural drawings of Buffalo landmarks such as The Guarantee Building, Shea’s Theatre, The Saturn Club, the North Park Theatre and The H.H. Richardson Complex. Karen will also accept work on commission for any site you choose, even your own house.
Brian Nesline started “Faces of Buffalo” as a fundraiser and the popular community involvement event has led to the creation of beautiful mosaics representing the Buffalo community. Brian is also the source for the photo alphabet frames featuring prominent Buffalo sites, including the Burchfield Penney Art Center.
“Upcycled” products are the specialty of Monika Toney who utilizes vintage buttons as the decorations for her purses that feature designs of buffaloes.
Eugene Hegedus even promises to corral his herd of wooden buffaloes for our Buffalo Night event.
