Experience a work of art

Welcome to the Burchfield Penney Art Center, the only museum exclusively dedicated to the art and artists of Western New York – including famed American watercolorist Charles E. Burchfield.

From the moment you first step through our doors, you will be surrounded by inspirational, thought-provoking and often world-renowned artwork. The Burchfield Penney features more than 30 exhibitions annually. While many are curated from our extensive collections, we often bring new work into the museum through temporary exhibitions and works on loan. As a result, no visit to the Burchfield Penney is ever the same. We encourage you to become a member and return often to experience everything the Burchfield Penney has to offer.

Burchfield’s works

Please note that due to the nature of watercolor, Charles E. Burchfield's chosen medium, works by the artist are in constant rotation. Please visit the exhibitions page of this website for information on what works by the artist are on view.
