Hope by Ron Warford, 40' x 30 " Graphite on Black Board, Framed 
Mr. Warford's work was selected by the Smithsonian Institution for a national traveling exhibition in 1973. He was one of the initial founding and teaching members at the Folk Art Gallery in Syracuse. His work spings from his imagination and is masterfully executed. Tel (315) 391-5115 for more info or to purchase. One of the presidents of a local art guild referred to Ron's work as  "master works" for their power and quality.

Strength , by Ron Warford. 20 " X 30"  

Home is Where the Hearth Is by Jaws. This piece took 600 hours. Amazingly, to produce this the artist had to put the snowflakes  in first on a white fine piece of paper and then build everything around it. Think about it - this amazing work, and other pieces of the artists work can be seen at CNY Artists Gallery, which purchased this piece in 2013.

 The Museum of Bad Art ???

This is the video by the Executive Director of MOBA, the Museum of Bad Art. We want everyone to see that because it is both educational and funny. When we show it to people, we have found they want to see it all the way through. Watch and learn. What is art? What is good art? What is bad art? In this video the Director of the Museum of of Bad Art in Boston Massachusettes provides a humorous and insightful presentation. You won't be disappointed .
