KENAN GALLERY TO PRESENT 3 GENERATIONS OF BURCHFIELDS

KENAN GALLERY TO PRESENT 3 GENERATIONS OF BURCHFIELDS

This year not only marks the 50th Anniversary of the Kenan Center in Lockport, but the 51st anniversary of a landmark in the history of the Kenan House Gallery. It was on April 30, 1966, that the fledgling gallery opened with an exhibit of works by American watercolorist, Charles E. Burchfield, from the collection of Charles Rand Penney. It would prove to be one of the last exhibitions Burchfield attended in person prior to his passing in January, 1967.

Gurney Play Launches Theater Revival in Lockport

The Kenan Center’s Taylor Theater in Lockport is embarking on an eagerly anticipated revival of live theater, starting with the April production of “Love Letters,” by Buffalo playwright A. R. Gurney.  Performance dates are April 21 and 22 at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, April 23 at 3:00 PM at the Taylor Theater, 433 Locust St., Lockport. Tickets are $20 general admission or $15 for Kenan members, and can be purchased online through Ticketleap or at the Kenan Center Business Office. To charge by phone, call 716-433-2617.

Gurney’s “staged reading” is a story of love that lasts a lifetime. It centers around two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Ladd, III, who meet as children. They share a correspondence that begins with a thank you notes and summer camp postcards and evolves into an exchange of letters in which they share the most important milestones of their lives.
