The Roycroft Legacy
Gallery Four

The Roycroft Legacy is a fascinating exhibition of late 19th and early 20th century furniture, domestic objects, and publications by Roycroft artisans, primarily donated by Charles Rand Penney.

Charles Burchfield's Studio
Studio Gallery

This authentic recreation of a corner of Burchfield's Gardenville, New York, studio presents many of the artist's tools and favorite inspirational objects, as well as the unpretentious furniture that equipped his comfortable work site. Reflecting the studio's appearance in the mid-1960s, this vignette reveals the humble environment in which the artist worked.

The Metcalfe Rooms
Rockwell Hall, Second Floor

The Metcalfe House, designed in 1882 by the well-known New York City firm McKim, Mead & White, stood on the corner of North Street and Delaware Avenue until 1980. Preservationists were able to only save parts of the structure from demolition. The dining room and library are now housed in Rockwell Hall; the Metcalfe House staircase is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Please call (716) 878-6120 or e-mail burchfld@buffalostate.edu for an appointment to view the rooms
