Board of Directors

Eileen Graetz

Board Chair

 

Eileen received a B.F.A.in painting from S.U.N.Y at Buffalo and painted in acrylics and oils for several years. I began showing my photography in the mid 90's. I worked for General Motors and American Axle & Mfg. for 33 years and retired in 2006. I have traveled throughout this country and much of Europe and this has provided many subjects to photograph. I photograph with a painters eye and always look for color, texture and shapes. I am a member of Western New York Artists Group, Buffalo Society of Artists and Carnegie Art Center. And I have a greyhound named Kat."
