The watercolor paintings adorning the walls of the Kenan Center House Gallery are varied and vivid. Of the more than five dozen, there are images of iconic Western New York structures, bridges, animals, bodies of water, and of course, flowers.

"Westfield Woman II" is in the Upper Gallery, South
Bedroom. It is one of many architecture paintings in the
Rita Argen Auerbach's "Chronicle of a 40-Year-Career in Watercolor" opened this afternoon and will be on display through June 15. Auerbach was on hand this afternoon discussing her art and signing catalogues of her artwork for happy patrons.

Auerbach's paintings are represented in numerous museum, public and private collections, and have appeared in both curated and solo exhibitions at Kenan Center, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Castellani Art Museum at Niagara University, Hallwalls, and Art Dialogue Gallery, among others,  as well as at Chautauqua Institution. Her body of work is so vast that she currently has a second exhibit for view in Western New York, at the Meibohm Gallery in East Aurora.

The exhibit will be open special hours during 100 American Craftsmen; from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 31 and noon to 4 p.m. on June 1. The Gallery will be closed May 24-26, 30, and June 2, and Saturdays starting June 7.

A Tea & Tour in the Gallery will be held on Sunday, June 8. The event includes light luncheon fare, dessert and teas followed by a conversation with the artist. Cost is $20 per person; advance reservations are required by calling 433-2617.
