At the Water’s Edge: Paintings and Drawings by Mildred C. Green

Mildred C. Green (1874-1951) was a muralist, illustrator, educator, and writer. This exhibition showcases Green’s paintings of the Buffalo Harbor during the decades when it was a driving force in the economy of the city of Buffalo, as well as scenes that she painted along the Niagara River and in the landscape around the city. Her paintings remain an important expression of the unique beauty of the region during the period when it was at its economic peak.
