Highlighting early Seneca culture, Traditional Seneca Lifeways, features the art work of Empire State College Student, Brendalee Piccone. Piccone’s watercolor, acrylic paintings and pencil drawings represent Seneca cultural items and their use in everyday life. Images of the Seneca longhouse, ceremonial implements and spiritual beliefs are the subjects of the BNAC Exhibit. Artifacts from the West Seneca Historical Society will complement her visual narrative, adding historic pictures and artifacts to enhance the exhibit.
The Burchfield Center, located on the site of the Buffalo Creek Reservation, once inhabited by the Seneca Nation, is an especially appropriate venue for this exhibit.
Piccone’s exhibit will run from February 6 through March 3, 2013. The Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am-4pm. An opening reception will be held Sunday, February 10 at 2pm. At 2:30 that afternoon, the artist will share some of her impressions of the historical culture and its social complexities.
Burchfield Nature and Art Center is located at 2001 Union Road (near Clinton St) in West Seneca. www.BurchfieldNAC.org
