Kenan Center to present rare exhibition of three generations of Burchfield painters

June 1 @ 2:00 pm - June 16 @ 5:00 pm


This year not only marks the 50th Anniversary of the Kenan Center in Lockport, but the 51st anniversary of a landmark in the history of the Kenan House Gallery. It was on April 30, 1966, that the fledgling gallery opened with an exhibit of works by American watercolorist, Charles E. Burchfield from the collection of Charles Rand Penney. It would prove to be one of the last exhibitions Burchfield attended in person prior to his passing in January, 1967.

The exhibit titled, THREE GENERATIONS OF BURCHFIELDS: WORKS FROM THE SCHOENE COLLECTION, opens April 30, 2017 with a public reception from 2 to 5 p.m. The exhibit will bring together for the first time the works of Charles Burchfield, both of his daughters Catherine Burchfield Parker and Martha Burchfield Richter, and his granddaughter, Peggy Richter Haug. The exhibit is guest curated by Gerald Mead.

The exhibit continues through June 16 in the Kenan House Gallery, 433 Locust St, Lockport. Gallery hours are M-F, noon-5:00 p.m.; Sundays, 2:00-5:00 p.m. The Gallery will also be open Saturdays, May 6 and June 10 from 2:00-5:00 p.m.
