For Andrea Siwiec of Buffalo, "Routes to Art" has become a ritual.
This weekend will mark her third time touring the studios of the 45 artists scattered about Cattaraugus County and the Seneca Nation of Indians.
This year, Andrea, her husband and four friends will pile into the same vehicle, hitting the rural roads, meeting artists and reviewing their works.
"Their studios are in these beautiful settings. It must be where they get their inspiration."
Siwiec offers another key observation.
"Don't forget your GPS."
