Throughout her year as Burchfield artist-in-residence, Janelle Lynch will share her thoughts and impressions with us as we share her journey into the spirit and work of Charles Burchfield.
My last day of my first AIR visit began in the BPAC board room with a group of CEB enthusiasts. We gathered for a tour of CEB's Buffalo City Sites, led by curator Nancy Weekly. Tony introduced me as a "zealot."
I was in good company. Nancy gave a historical overview of CEB's life and the houses and structures that were important to him, including the Cyclorama Building at Pearl and Edward Streets, built in 1888.
