An arts and business luncheon that features Thomas Annear, a Fredonia-based artist whose paintings of outdoor scenes commemorate the beauty of the local farming community, will be held at the Fredonia Science Center on Wednesday, Dec. 7, from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Mr. Annear has been working on a series of plein air paintings for the past 20 years. He has attempted to depict particular topography, weather patterns and natural resources of Western New York in these pieces. Conservation and environmental concerns have become increasingly important in his work.

The luncheon, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Science Center atrium. To register, visit online. For more information, contact incubator at (716) 680-6009 or email

The event is sponsored by the Fredonia Technology Incubator, an economic development program of SUNY Fredonia, which works with external partners to promote economic growth by supporting entrepreneurship and development of new, innovative companies into successful business ventures. The incubator provides administrative and business services, mentoring, networking, professional consulting and education opportunities such as workshops. And access to capital and work ready space are also available.
