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


For more than 40 years, Charles E. Burchfield lived 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.
