Still Life Painting by Buffalo Artist Roland Wise

BUffalo, NY – Before his death in 2005, Buffalo artist Roland Wise created a half century of important works. The public will have a chance to see his work for the first time in over a decade in an exhibit presented by 20th Century Finest in Buffalo through July 19 at Michael Donnelly Interior Design on Hertel. But for his daughter, Meg Wise, the exhibit holds special meaning. It's the canvas of her father's life's story that he shared with her in his final days. The health researcher interviews terminally ill patients and records their stories. WBFO's Joyce Kryszak talked with Meg Wise about her healing sessions with her own terminally ill father.
