Founded in 1966, the Burchfield Penney Art Center was inspired by watercolorist Charles E. Burchfield, one of America’s most original artists. Best known for his romantic, often fantastic landscapes, Burchfield developed a unique style of watercolor painting, exploring distinctly American subjects.

Burchfield’s profound respect for nature is reflected in our stunning new building. Having earned the LEED® certification at the Silver level, it is the first “green” art museum in New York State.

Enriched by our long-standing relationship with Buffalo State College, and inspired by the dedication and support of sponsors, volunteers, members and friends, the Burchfield Penney has emerged as the home for Western New York art.

We hope you will join us today.
