One of the best art events is coming up on Friday, November 9, 2012. 'Paint the Town' is a celebration of Buffalo and its artists, and we all know that the art community is the glue that helps to make this city strong. This year over 40 local artists will exhibit their works in both live and silent auctions, with proceeds from the sales benefitting both the artists and The Buffalo History Museum. Not only is the venue a draw in itself, the artwork is some of the best around. It's a chance to add to your collection, while strengthening the permanent collections at the museum.
There's fine food and drink to be had, as you browse the different works by artists such as Monica Angle, Dennis Bertram, Joe Cascio, Peter Fowler, Deborah R. Hill, Jane Jacobson, Thomas Kegler, Richard Kersting, Mike Killelea, Gary Kyte, Chuck LaChiusa, Christina Laing, Elizabeth Leader, Geraldine Liquidano, Linda Lucas, David Manny, Gerald Mead, John Montague, Michael Morgulis, Francis Noonan, Russell Ram, John O'Reilly, Andy Russell, Joan Saba, Cynthia Sanchez, Harvey Siegel, Carol Siracuse, D. Ann Stievater, Catherine Tillou, Sally Treanor, Patrick Willett and Sara Zak.
