St. Mary's Artwork

Generations will come and go and many will forget their ethnic connections, the deep-rooted and close-knit loving community and those who have passed in the many years ago. One characteristic that will remain in the minds of anyone who has stepped through the doors of St. Mary's Assumption Church is the exquisite artwork which adorned the walls, ceilings, windows and altars. Those many pieces of artwork stand as a testament to the skills and craftsmanship of two of Buffalo's most well known sacred mural painters as well as countless others.

With the sale of the church, one can only hope that those pieces of art (several being one-of-a-kind) remain for years to come as a reminder of the communities of yesteryear who poured their lives and souls into that building.

Please enjoy the photographs as well as information about the context of the murals and the artists.
