As seen in The inscribed brick pavers at Buckland Park in Brighton, something new can always be found at Buckland Park on Westfall Road in Brighton.
Today, when biking, I saw a solitary figure at her easel, making a painting of the Amos B. Buckland farmhouse. From there, I met Madison Gardner, a recent graduate of Pavilion Junior Senior High School who now lives in Corn Hill.
Madison is actively pursuing her career as an artist. Today, she was doing Plein Air Painting, or what layman know as Outdoor Painting. When I saw the unfinished and still untitled work, I sensed Madison has real talent.Madison isn’t sure whether to call this work impressionist or expressionistic, laughing that maybe her style is just Madison style. Madison tells us more her artistic life:
I mainly work with acrylic paint. I have had booths at various art festivals across New York, and have shown at the Hart Gallery in Brockport. In September, I will be showing work alongside other artists at the Caledonia Village Gallery, and in November, I will be showing work at the Art Museum of Rochester.In the near future, I aspire to become a part of the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters. I hope to have my own shop and studio one day. I know a piece is finished when my body tells me to stop. Once my signature and the date are added, it truly reinforces that feeling.

When the Buckland House piece is finished, it can be found on her Etsy for sale.
