Saturday, February 18, 2012
All of us at the Burchfield Penney are saddened by the passing of Frank C. Eckmair, noted artist, printmaker and teacher.
For many years he taught and served as Chairman of the Fine Arts Department at Buffalo State College. His wood engravings and other works have appeared in dozens of books in the U.S. and abroad, and his prints are housed in private collections and museums around the world, including the New York Public Library, the Smithsonian Museum, the Pushkin Museum, and the Burchfield Penney Art Center. Eckmair was honored with numerous one-person exhibitions, and his prints were shown in many thematic and group exhibitions.
