Have you seen the fabric covered church Buffalo? It’s at the corner of Richmond and West Ferry on the West Side of Buffalo. It’s an art installation by Amanda Browder, titled “Spectral Locus.” Put together by some 300 volunteers, the fabric covered church Buffalo is a sight to behold. –Mark Weber of Beautiful Buffalo
The Glen Park Art Festival takes place the last weekend of July. In 2016, the festival celebrated its seventh year. Located on Glen Avenue in Williamsville, between Rock Street and Mill Street, the Glen Park Art Festival got its start because Mayor Brian Kulpa and Dick & Sharon Rich thought it would be nice to celebrate music, dance and art in the Village of Williamsville, in one of the region’s most beautiful parks. The community-oriented festival features some 140 local vendors, as well as food from local restaurants. With a space for kids to make art, high schoolers selling their art, and even a carousel, it’s a festival atmosphere. Meanwhile, the Town of Amherst stage hosts dancers, singers and musicians, providing a variety of entertainment from Friday night thru Sunday night. The Glen Park Art Festival is a highlight of the summer in Western New York. If you haven’t been, it’s worth a visit. –Mark Weber of Beautiful Buffalo
