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.

Event Description



Each of my paintings and photographs represents a moment of time in space. Each one is a barometer of how I was feeling at that moment and what was important to me during that time.    Diana Suskind

Diana Suskind’s art represents the stories of her life. A line of whimsical greeting cards, for instance, draws upon her years of work with infants and toddlers using the Educaring™ approach, as well as her experiences using creative arts to teach early childhood education at Fitchburg State University. Her artwork is influenced particularly by her travels around the world as a Fulbright Senior Scholar — working in hospitals, orphanages and schools in developing nations to create respectful interactions with children.  

In many of her pieces, she invokes the native animals from the countries she has visited: the roosters who woke her up in Belize; the giraffes, monkeys and elephants from South Africa; the turtles she swam with in Fiji. On a personal level, she reveals Rielee, her pet cat, and also her experience with nature at the Otisco Lake family cottage, where she spent summers while growing up and family time today. In summary, Diana Suskind’s work weaves together the loves of her life: children, fantasy and simple pleasures. “I see the world in all its dimensions,” she says. “An English garden is not just an object in space; it is the trees around the garden, and how the whole space affects mood and behavior.

The artist studied oil painting and photography at Lorenzo De Medici in Florence, Italy, as a recipient of the Marion Jasper Whiting Foundation Grant and later as a private student.

Named Artist of the Month for May 2014 by the Leominster Art Center Gallery, Diana Suskind was also the first artist selected for the Members’ Art Exhibit at Kerem Shalom Synagogue in Concord, Massachusetts in celebration of the installation of Rabbi Darby Jared Leigh, March-April 2014.
