Enjoy the Journey to Host ‘Gateways’ Exhibit

 

Enjoy the Journey Art Gallery invites the public to the opening reception of the Evans Art Guild’s new “Gateways” exhibit taking place Friday, Sept. 11 at the gallery, located at 1168 Orchard Park Road in West Seneca. Gateways are openings or entrances that guide us to someplace else, which entice us to explore somewhere different. Artists have always been fascinated with gateways and have interpreted them literally, as well as metaphorically.

First Annual Erie County Fair Held in Buffalo Courthouse

First Annual Erie County Fair Held in Buffalo Courthouse

The Ladies were a bit reluctant to attend the first Erie County Fair, in 1841, so officials announced: "Constables will be on grounds to preserve order and the visits of the ladies will be welcomed to the exhibition."

Thus reassured, the ladies tied on there bonnets, and sallied forth. They even attended the plowing matches, one of the main attractions of early fairs, and it was reported "more than 2,000 people gathered in carriages and on horseback. A great many ladies, lured by delicious weather and the interest of the occasion, graced the attendance, adding interest and brilliancy to the scene." Even in those days the ladies did not like to miss any of the fun.
