Burchfield Nature & Art Center

The Charles E. Burchfield Nature & Art Center, located at 2001 Union Road in West Seneca, New York has 15 acres of trails, a gallery housing works of Charles Burchfield as well as other western New York artists, an amphitheater, and many specialized gardens. Art & nature programs as well as concerts and lectures are part of the activities offered. The Charles E. Burchfield Nature & Art Center is a unique facility which combines trails, outdoor art exhibits, gardens and museum level indoor gallery space. In 1996, the West Seneca Town Board wanted to honor Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967), an internationally recognized American artist who had lived in the Gardenville community of West Seneca. Charles Burchfield was generally " . . . recognized as one of the finest watercolorists of the 20th century." Mr. Burchfield's residence was located across from the present day site of the Center (Lot 94), and the beauty of the Lot was the inspiration for his painting, "Rain and Wind Through the Tree." What had originated as a simple idea for a commemorative monument or plaque to honor the artist eventually was to become an art and nature center. Groundbreaking ceremonies were held late in 1999 and a 5,500 square foot building and a 29-acre passive park honoring Burchfield were opened in June of 2000. The Charles E. Burchfield Nature and Art Center includes an Interpretive Center, the Youth Center and Americorps offices, a gallery and an outdoor amphitheater for concerts, classes and plays. Walking trails wind throughout Lots 94 and 95, past the old Ebenezer dam and the old millraces, even passing by the Middle Ebenezer cemetery. Picnic benches dot the park, gardens are plentiful, and children have their own play area, as the Center serves as a living educational facility.
