"Puddles on the Towpath," by Manning
"A Brushing Impression," a solo exhibition of works by Manning McCandlish, opened Saturday at the Lockside Art Center and will continue through June 6.

McCandlish, a local award-winning artist, has taught watercolor classes and workshops for many years. She is president of the Buffalo Niagara Art Association, chairman of the Kenan Art Committee and serves on the board of the Lockside Art Center. She is also a member of several art societies, holding various offices in each, and she has participated in many society and gallery art exhibits, winning numerous awards.

McCandlish works primarily in transparent watercolor, but also does pen and ink work, and likes to go out with the Plein Air Painters to paint on location. She paints a variety of subjects, but is known for her paintings of the Erie Canal and the Lockport Locks.

A second exhibit, "Wildlife Sculpture Exhibition and More," is also ongoing. It features Mark "Gig" Goldstein's works.

Goldstein, who has a deep appreciation for nature, began carving around 15 years ago, where he began combining his love for nature and his new hobby into beautiful works of wildlife art. He has had no formal training but has been self-taught in his craft.

He began his journey in carving with creating decorative fish but has since expanded into numerous other areas of carving such as relief, antler, chainsaw, and more recently guitar carving. Each of creations are one-of-a-kind, hand-carved, hand-painted works of art.

Goldstein has won various national and regional carving contests and awards for his wood sculpting. His work has been featured in national and international magazine publications and many of his pieces are in private collections.

Still residing in Western New York, Gig continues to explore new and unique challenges in wood sculpting, meticulously painting, continuously improving, perfecting, and expanding his art.
