Cherry TreeFlowering Trees in Victorian Richmond Hill: Paintings by Irene Buszko
Curated by Janet Schneider
April 6 – June 30. On view Tue, Sat & Sundays 1-4pm 
Closing Talk & Reception: June 30, Sunday 2 pm

Victorian era homes with gardens can be found to this day in Richmond Hill, in  Flushing, and pocket neighborhoods throughout our region.  Over the years, Irene Buszko has painted her family neighborhood in the plein-air tradition. She sets up her easel on site to paint each of the Victorian homes lovingly tended by families today. 

As guest curator Janet Schneider notes,” There is a uniqueness here—a kind of quirky individualism that can be found in many of the older communities of Queens.”

We host a talk with the Richmond Hill Historical Society’s President Ivan Mrakovcic and closing reception on June 30th, 2-4pm.  Learn more about scenes rendered in Buszko’s paintings and the work of the Society in preserving the heritage of Richmond Hill and supporting its vibrancy today.
