Drumlevitch - Burchfield Penney

Seymour Drumlevitch (1923-1989), Illuminations for the 21st Century - Catalan and Petenera, 1972

Who do you call when you’ve got a messed-up painting? If you’re smart, you call a professional art conservator. This is one of those underrated skills that is the result of meticulous training, and Buffalo has one of the best art conservation programs in the US. It’s located at Buffalo State College and is now fifty years old. An anniversary exhibition at BPAC showcases the variety of paintings, works of art on paper, and 3D pieces that have been expertly conserved and restored by this Department’s graduate students and faculty. The works come from the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Burchfield Penney Art Center, and the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum in Salamanca, New York. See this beautifully conserved art through the end of this month.
