Here is a sampling of local virtual events.
2020 Vision – Women Artists in Western New York (ongoing)
This exhibit celebrating local female artists originally opened Feb. 20, 2020, at the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University, but the museum was quickly closed because of the pandemic. Now, the work of 140 of the original 185 women artists from five Western New York counties who participated in the exhibit can be seen virtually on YouTube in a free slideshow. To purchase the art, which all proceeds are going to the artist, contact the artist directly.

New at 7 p.m. Jan. 12 is a celebration of the 20th century with a combination of two of its iconic masterpieces: Poulenc’s Sonata and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House.
