Historically, the artworks range from an early 20th century watercolor by Raphael Beck, a Lockport artist who designed the seal for the Pan-American Exposition held in Buffalo in 1901, to an award winning painting created in 2016 by E. Jane Stoddard, a signature member of the National Watercolor Society. Other artists include Rita Auerbach, Robert Blair, Charles Burchfield, Edwin Dickinson, Walter Garver, Catherine Parker and Joseph Whalen. Gallery hours are M-F, noon-5 p.m.; Sundays, 2 to 5 p.m. The Gallery will be closed July 4 and 21. The Gallery will also be open during the Kenan’s Center’s Community Day, July 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Kenan Center House Gallery is located at 433 Locust St. Admission is free.
