An open-air painting demonstration will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. June 15 at Canalside featuring Buffalo Arts Studio teaching artist Thomas Rojek and local artists.

The event will also include an art auction, with proceeds to benefit Buffalo Arts Studio’s goal of raising $1,500 to produce 10 outdoor easels fabricated by artist Larry Griffis for public use at the waterfront. To register for open-air classes throughout the summer with Rojek, call Jayne Hughes at 833-4450, Ext. 11.
