Brenda Lyness has won Best in Show at the at the Barnes and Noble Winter Show of the PAA (Penfield Art Association). The title, “The Erosion of Faith, Hope, and Charity” (mixed media) featured the faces of three women with a veil of transparent, dripping charcoal over their faces, as if, Faith, Hope and Charity were eroding. Brenda was inspired to create this piece when she was moved by the 2017 turmoil in our country, and personally experienced the erosion of basic kindness and respect in our culture.

Erie Community College Fine Arts and Humanities Professor Brian Porter (also RAC Signature member) has selected works in the Buffalo Society of Artists Spring Exhibition at the Kenan Center in Lockport, NY
The Buffalo Society of Artists presents their annual spring members’ exhibit at the Kenan Center House Gallery. Opening reception, Sunday, February 19 from 2-5 PM.
The show will run from February 19th – March 26th, 2017.
The Mission of the Buffalo Society of Artists is to promote and recognize excellence in visual art through the presentation of exhibitions and activities favorable to artistic expression, and to develop interchange among artists and those interested in the arts.
The Buffalo Society of Artists is one of the oldest continually operating arts organizations in the country. Started in 1891 to promote and expand the awareness of Western New York artists, we maintain the same mission today.
Visitors from all over the world enjoy walking the Kenan Center campus to see the 1800’s Victorian mansion and the beautifully landscaped grounds that belonged to Mr. and Mrs. William Rand Kenan, Jr. The Center has grown from a community center, which has served the residents of Lockport, New York since its official dedication in 1969, to become one of the premier facilities in the Buffalo Niagara region for arts, education and recreation programming.
