    Castellani to feature Thomas Kegler’s Niagara Falls landscapes

    No Comments

    From the Buffalo News:

    Even for those who have visited dozens of times, Niagara Falls still inspires a sense of awe.

    That’s certainly true for the gifted area landscape painter Thomas Kegler, whose series of Niagara Falls paintings in the style of the Hudson River School each capture the majesty and lure of the falls in their own peculiar way.

    In an exhibition opening May 7, the Castellani Art Museum at Niagara University will feature more than a dozen of Kegler’s studies and paintings of the falls in a new exhibition.

    Canada’s fling with Marilyn

    (this isn’t directly related to Niagara Falls, but there is a blurb about Marilyn Monroe being in Niagara Falls)

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    We know her influence in the U.S. but what kind of impression did Marilyn Monroe leave in Canada?

    Plenty, according to the man who organized an exhibition in her honour at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, ON. Though she only made two high-profile visits to Canada – including Niagara Falls in 1952 – her stamp on pop culture is still felt through photos and artwork.

    The exhibition closed in May, but Finn will be at the RiverBrink Art Museum July 17 to discuss Monroe’s enduring influence up north.

    “(Niagara) was her first major acting role, and she was drawing quite a bit of attention,” says Finn, McMichael’s assistant curator. “It seemed like she had a much closer relationship with the people she met on the street than any other time in her career after that.”
