The Army Corps of Engineers opened up the Locks at Black Rock Canal adjacent to the Niagara River to artists and members of Painting for Preservation. It was a beautiful day; a day to paint or sketch or photograph one of our Western New York treasures with other artists and believers in preservation of our environment.

From the P4P blog,http://paintingforpreservation.blogspot.com:

“Welcome to Painting for Preservation! This initiative, founded by artist Sara M. Zak, is aimed at drawing attention to distressed, at-risk, and under-utilized historic locations through on site art making.

Mission: To bring together artists of all media in support of historic distressed properties and communities. To create artwork on-site related to the location as a means of raising positive awareness of the space.”
