Art Available - Gallery 1

Hope by Ron Warford, 40' x 30 " Graphite on Black Board, Framed $900
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"   $750.

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.


Dream Horse by M. Smart - $450

Diana’s art tells her story. Her most recent endeavor, a line of “whimsical greeting cards,” draws on 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. It is especially influenced 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.    

Diana “brings back” the animals from the countries she has visited: the roosters who woke her up in Belize, the elephant she swam with in Nepal, a turtle she swam with while scuba diving in Fiji,  as well as giraffes , monkeys from South Africa, and Rielee, her cat! She incorporates her experience of nature at the Otisco Lake family cottage where she grew up summers and still spends family time. Her work weaves together the loves of her life: children, fantasy and travel. Diana says, “Seeing the world as not flat, I bring the essence of 3-d into my two-dimensional work.” Visiting ‘Garden in the Woods’ in Framingham, MA, Diana sees how the trees above contribute to the whole composition by encapsulating the garden in a natural canopy.  It is exciting how the entire space can affect behavior (the topic of her doctoral dissertation.)

Diana studied painting and photography at the Lorenzo De Medici, Florence, Italy. Her art has been displayed in the Palace in Haiti, at one-woman shows in Karlsruhe, Germany, as well as locally in Fitchburg, Leominster and Gardener.  She has recently retired from Fitchburg State University and her watercolors are now displayed at CNY Local Artist’s Association, Syracuse, New York, Thanassi Gallery in Provincetown, Leominster Art Center, Fitchburg Art Museum, and with local merchants.


Educaring™, based on the work of the late Magda Gerber, develops a respectful relationship between an infant and his/her caregiver, which is established during routine care-giving tasks. Profound in its simplicity and effect, educaring has permeated Diana’s life and art ever since.
