The Western New York Southtowns Scenic Byway Committee and Springville Center for the Arts present an exhibit of postcards inspired by the Byway.
Area artists will be displaying their original work in a black and white 4×6 format along with the accompanying text. At the conclusion of the exhibit, the cards will be mailed out and the public will have a chance to participate in the program.
The exhibit features the work of more than a dozen artists and a variety of scenes including the Knox Farm, the Orchard Park Train Station, twisted old trees and distinct homes.
The Byway follows a route that includes the communities of Springville, East Concord, Glenwood, Colden, West Falls, East Aurora, Orchard Park, and Boston. This past summer, interpretive signs were placed at a variety of locations along the route.
This spring, Springville Center for the Arts will host Changing Seasons, a general exhibit of artwork inspired by the Byway along with a variety of events. Work may be representative of, or merely inspired by, this designated scenic route. Sights along the byway include waterfalls, historic villages, a gorge, farms, historic cemeteries and the ever-changing seasons. Submissions may include a scenic depiction, a portrait of someone important to the Byway, an abstract inspired by the Byway or other work connected to the Byway and are due by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 8, 2014.
The postcard exhibit will be on display until Nov. 23, 2013. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Call (716) 592-9038 for more information.
