Dog Ears Bookstore to Exhibit the Work of Artist Walter S. Mayo

Dog Ears Bookstore to Exhibit the Work of Artist Walter S. Mayo

Dog Ears Bookstore & Café, located at 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo, will feature the artwork of Walter S. Mayo beginning Jan. 4. The exhibit will run through February.

“My life journey has taken many different turns in the arts,” said Mayo. “While my professional training is in the performance and teaching of music, visual art has been a life-long interest and passion. My first influence was my Aunt Pearl, our family’s first artist. It was not only her passion for art and life which I remember, but also her jolly laugh and the flamboyant color of her life. Perhaps it was looking at her paintings or just listening to her describe how she painted plates and bowls that caught my imagination. My mother was always proud of any artwork that she obtained from my aunt.
