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.

Vatican Secrets Raise Eyebrows

The Travel Channel has launched a new show called, "Mysteries at the Museum." It seems as though there are always mysteries unraveling inside Vatican City. The Da Vinci Code has some fun with their story lines

stemming from this iconic location, but I wonder...what secrets and

mysteries lurk at the Vatican. A big mystery occurred to me when I

visited this landmark in 2008.…

career path

Well, it seems that teaching is what is being sent to me by The Universe...I have been creating products for more years than I care to count...but I have also been teaching my craft that long. So.."

Au Revioir France, Ciao Italy

Having finished my

French art painting, “Eguisheim in Bloom,” I lingered on not quite ready to leave this lovely little village and found myself strolling down one of its back streets.

Although the scene is more subdued than my painting, “Eguisheim in Bloom,” it has its own special charm. The narrow cobblestone street is sheltered from a hot noonday sun and invites the traveler to enjoy the… Continue

Pollution Threatens Sistine Chapel Art

Is it possible that my first visit to the Sistine Chapel, located in the Vatican which is the official home to the Pope, may be my last? The problem is real, the art is priceless. Each year over 4 million people stream through the Sistine Chapel to view the amazing

Italian art. Although our spirits may be pure, our bodies are


There is great concern for the damage caused by the sweat,… Continue

Fairy Tale Journey - French Painting Artist

I recently visited the charming, little village of Eguisheim situated along the Alsace Wine Trail in France. Saying that it is “charming” seems like an understatement because the senses are overwhelmed with the sites and smells as I walked along the winding streets through this medieval village. Walking among the colorful half-timbered houses competing with a botanical array of fragrant flowers is almost too much to behold. In such a surreal surrounding it doesn’t take much imagination to… Continue

An introduction

Jewelry design is my outlet for developing my own ideas and a chance to work with my hands. I am an Industrial Designer by profession and jewelry has been a natural outgrowth of my passion for form and color, nature and natural materials, and my desire to create objects that are unique as well as useful. I look for stones and other items that are unusual and build the silver around them to accentuate the forms or express an idea. The silver is either sterling, created using traditional silver… Continue

Remnants of My Youth, My Early Career...

Circa 1981: In the Massena Observer Newsroom

My early professional career spent working as a reporter for the Massena Observer, the then-hometown newspaper of Massena, New York. In this shot, you'll note details that could only be signs of those times: Dedicated Word Processor (not a PC), 1980s cheap Casio digital wristwatch,…

An Attic of Treasures – Oil Art Paintings

I am fortunate to live in the Northeast part of the U.S. where most houses have expansive attics. I went up in my attic the other day to look for an oil painting I had stored up there back a while ago. It took me a while pouring through all of my little treasures which I have accumulated over the years, but eventually I found my painting.

Coincidentally, the Duke of Devonshire was doing the same thing. Although he was slightly more successful in his attic finds than I… Continue
