Niagara Falls hasn't always been thought of as an Art mecca for artists and paintings.
For a few years International Plein Air Painters brought plein air painters into the area for a part of the WORLDWIDE Paint OutAnd from time to time, you will see an occasional plein air painter out painting the Niagara Falls landscape. But, for the most part, because of the climate and short season, artists in the Niagara Falls area are studio painters.
Many talented artists live in Niagara Falls and with the downtown area being revitalized, you can see many of them in the galleries on Queen St.
We attended an opening for artist Fritz Niemann last night.
