Buffalo, NY - The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will host photography and sculpture exhibits this summer.  Joe Diebold will display his bright and colorful photography June 1 through August 18 in the Arcangel Gallery located inside the Botanical Gardens.  A unique and whimsical Sculpture Exhibit by Melanie Fisher will be scattered throughout the Botanical Gardens June 15 through August 18 for visitor to enjoy.  The Botanical Gardens also announced that they will be open extended hours on Tuesdays from 10:00am to 9:00pm June through August.

Joe Diebold’s photography exhibit, From the Power of the Sun, will be held inside the Arcangel Gallery June 1 through August 18. This exhibit will give visitors the feeling that the summer sun is shining through each photo. Diebold is a self-taught local photographer that started his career with nature and landscape photography. Diebold now specializes in maternity, children’s and family photography but still has a passion for nature and landscapes. This passion brought him to discover the Botanical Gardens and the many wonderful exhibits it holds.

The Arcangel Gallery opened in 2010 and displays photography and artwork, from local artists that reflects the Botanical Gardens, its horticulture residents, nature, Western New York life and local architecture. The gallery is named after local man, Brent D. Arcangel. Arcangel grew up in Western New York and believed in “giving life your very best every day”. He was a beacon of light to those who knew him.  His life ended tragically in a car accident caused by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel.  The Arcangel Gallery was donated by Brent’s parents, Wayne D. and Corrine Arcangel of Hamburg, NY, as a tribute to him, and to remind us all to celebrate life.

Melanie Fisher’s Sculpture Exhibit will be on display throughout the Botanical Gardens June 15 through August 15.  With influences from nature and science fiction, Melanie Fisher transforms large ceramic forms into a new hybrid of species that are organic and otherworldly. The sculptures mix characteristics from plants and humans, mimicking artificial selection by carefully manipulating the clay to create new organisms. By working in a range of scales and mediums, Melanie explores the connections between micro and macro worlds, imagining the opportunity to discover something previously unknown.

Currently a resident at Buffalo Arts Studio in New York, Melanie Fisher graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo State College with a Bachelors in Science in Ceramics. She and has shown in multiple galleries and museums in the Buffalo area, including The Burchfield Penney Art Center. Her work is informed by nature, and she builds organic forms that hint at social issues, transcending language to trigger human emotion. Her work causes introspective thinking as one ponders her otherworldly forms referenced in the natural world. 

Both exhibits are included with admission to the Botanical Gardens will be open daily from 10:00am-4:30pm and on Tuesdays until 9:00pm. Admission prices are; $11 for adults, $10 for seniors (62+), $9 for students (13+ with ID), $6 for kids 3-12 and Botanical Gardens’ members and kids two and under are free. Tickets can be purchased online at or inside the Botanical Gardens at the admission desk.

  • I remember one day I sat down and counted all the men I have met in my life and I felt so small because I know I am not perfect but I give all I can to the man aiming to remain with him but at the end of the day I remained alone. Men could come and go and I couldn’t see the money I was working for being paid a good salary but I couldn’t prosper when the time came that I failed to put bread on the table. My friend Totty Brobyn advised me to contact Dr Azuka WhatsApp +2349166175418 for a special prayer of cleansing. Dr Azuka advised me that I must do a cleansing prayer to take away all the bad luck and genealogical curse which were following me, we did the prayer online since I was far from him. It took me three days to realize changes in my life. I was promoted at work, my boyfriend also came back to me and proposed to me we have been together for two years now and things are fine. We are preparing for our wedding this December. I know that prayers work and I strongly believe the prayers of helped me to regain my happiness thanks, Dr Azuka.

  • My boyfriend left me for another girl for some silly reasons. He keeps telling me that I am nothing to him. He said he wants to be with the other girl. that he has no feeling for me anymore. This started more than one month ago. By this time he also speaks to me but not in his own mood or to rebuild our relationship. He does so because I request him to be with me at least for some hours or some minute… we talk only once …but I can’t stay without him. I want him back.. I was really worried and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Lord Zuma can help get ex lover back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do, and I did it then he did a Love spell for me. Some hours later, my boyfriend really called me and told me that he misses me so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me when he left. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, All thanks to Lord Zuma. he is so powerful and I decided to share my happiness on the internet that Lord Zuma is real. if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast. Do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma now. Here’s his email: or WhatsApp him: +1 506 800 1647

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day I heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
