BOOK CLUB: THE NIGHT SWIMMERS BY PETER ROCK
We are excited to welome author Peter Rock to the Burchfield Penney! Rock is a professor of creative writing at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. He will discuss his book and how the writings and works of Charles Burchfield have impacted his work.
Beneath the surface of Lake Michigan there are vast systems: crosscutting currents, sudden drop-offs, depths of absolute darkness, shipwrecked bodies, hidden places. Peter Rock’s stunning autobiographical novel begins in the ’90s on the Door Peninsula of Wisconsin. The narrator, a recent college graduate, and a young widow, Mrs. Abel, swim together at night, making their way across miles of open water, navigating the currents and swells and carried by the rise and fall of the lake. The nature of these night swims, and of his relationship to Mrs. Abel, becomes increasingly mysterious to the narrator as the summer passes, until the night that Mrs. Abel disappears.
The Center’s book club takes place on the First Thursday of the month and primarily features books written by WNY authors. Whenever possible, the author will attend the meeting!

GALLERY CONVERSATIONS WITH CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS
Free with Museum admission.
Although most artists in the Painting in Buffalo exhibition have passed generations before our contemporary artists were born, their impact has connections to those making art today. What is the value to the creativity being expressed today?
Join the Burchfield Penney and WNY artists, as they provide an artist’s perspective on how they find value from our shared past.
This event is free with gallery admission.
