Starlight Studio and Art Gallery, a division of LDA of WNY, has begun a new project with local community artists called Co-Artifact. The Buffalo community, especially the community of area artists, has always been very supportive of what we do at Starlight.

Summer has arrived.  Time to soak up some sun, reunite with old friends, meet new people and enjoy the many blessings the season has to offer.  Just a short drive from the City of Good Neighbors you will find one of my all-time favorite summer spots – the Griffis Sculpture Park.  From my first visit to the 200+ acre park, I simply fell in love.  Laden with brilliant sculptures of all shapes and sizes, the stunning landscape of hills and ponds comes alive with thousands of visitors each year to come and explore, hike, picnic and become inspired.
