A statement from Elmwood Village Association

This winter the Burchfield Penney Art Center presents Weather Event, an exhibition focused on Charles E. Burchfield's depictions of the weather and climate south of Lake Erie. Curated by Tullis Johnson and climatologist and Buffalo State College professor Stephen Vermette, Ph.D., the exhibition is on view through February 26, 2012.

On Sunday, January 29, 2012 from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m., Dr. Vermette will moderate lake effect and how it defines Buffalo's weather and climate.The program begins with Dr. Vermette's premise that the geographic position of Buffalo and other locations south of Lake Erie share a unique climate experience that Burchfield captured for over 50 years in his artwork. The panel discusses the realities and myths of Buffalo weather. Additional aspects of the conversation may include the potential impact on the region of climate change.
