Buffalo Garden Tour Video

Garden and art connections

Checking in with the Burchfield Penney Art Center

I was asked by the Burchfield Penny Art Center, here in Buffalo, to participate in their series of “Check-ins” with artists, of many stripes, to see what they’re doing creatively during the home isolation of the past months during the pandemic.

The other artists “checking in” were a wide variety of artists and creative professionals like painter Philip Koch; fashion stylist, educator and style editor Erin Habes,; muralist Edreys Wajed and his creative family; artists Shasti O’Leary-Soudant and Dennis Maher; and Grammy Award-winning pianist George Caldwell; among others.

Specifically I was asked to talk about the garden tourism activities this summer and what was going on with them – how the different organizations were dealing with a pandemic.

Though I’d much prefer to be behind a camera than in front of one, I filmed and produced this video on my own (with a little camera assist from my daughter). I was glad to have the chance to promote my business and share what’s happening with the garden tourism events here in Buffalo Niagara.
