  • The Castellani family built a grocery store empire, beginning with a mom and pop in n Niagara Falls, New York. The family caught the collecting bug in 1956 and what can you do with a personal collection of thousands of works but donate it to a non-profit? The family had a construction company that built all the grocery stores, so the company built the art museum. The family collected passionately with great results. However, the museum also shows where the hunt for great art brought home not easy to understand items. The museum celebrates the calling that is collecting. A show entitled Western New York Collects: Nancy Dwyer has pride of place in a prominent gallery of the museum. The show exhibits Dwyer's work held by local collectors, many collectors living in Buffalo. Dedication of the art museum to the development of art on the Niagara Frontier cannot be questioned after a thousand days of supporting Thomas Keeler's mission of "Painting Niagara". The show traveled the world before returning to this perch over the Niagara River, discover down river from the cataracts. The Castellani family started collecting by acquiring a George Inness painting, a gem of Hudson River School. The family gives direct support to the latest generation of painters who take their sketch books and easels into nature by presenting Kegler's Painting Niagara at C.A.M. This exhibition, with a documentary video, has the power to inspire another generation to take paints and brushes to the wild.
  • What a fantastic exhibit of Thomas Kegler's work! Beautiful art, wonderful thoughts and our ever important water. Thank you.
  • Has a variety.. even one or two of Andy Warhol's! I went on a Sunday an hour before closing and only two others were there so it was peaceful !
  • Awesome museum and great selected collection. It's one of the best museum. Small but classic and modern. enjoyed very much.
  • I'm a oil painter myself I have work in NYC.
