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.
