Welcome to the Charles E. Burchfield Nature & Art Center website! 


For more than 40 years, Charles E. Burchfield lved and painted in Gardenville, an area located in the northern end of the town of West Seneca.  This area is now home to our center, situated on 29 acres of nature trails and woods, wild and cultivated gardens, alongside the banks of the scenic Buffalo Creek. 

Today, people of all ages visit the gallery and grounds of our center to experience art and nature at its best.  Adult and children's classes and activities, gallery exhibitions, festivals and special events means there's something for everyone at our center.


Artist Frank O'Connor will disassemble his "Serpent of Dreams" sculpture and use the pieces  in a new sculpture in the Burchfield Nature and Art Center in West Seneca. O'Connor's sculptures are made of pieces of dead wood collected across WNY. He was working on his new piece at Burchfield Saturday, October 18.
