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

The Key To A Fortune

Having spent some time in the romantically enchanting city of Paris, it is hard for me

to fathom why a Parisian would elect to leave and never come back. However, that

is exactly what happened to Mrs. de Florian, who in her youth had been a

demimondaine (a woman supported by a wealthy lover.) …

From the Found Michelangelo to the Elusive Rubens

This new discovery of the "Lost Pieta" painted by Michelangelo and found outside of Buffalo, New York, in the home of a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel made me think back to an experience I had a few years ago.

Both stories start out similarly for they both concern officers in the Air Force and both stories involve priceless works of art, but it is here that the two stories go their separate ways. The retired lieutenant colonel always knew where his painting was. I took two Air… Continue

Traveling Without A Passport

One of those hidden little perks of being an artist is that I get to travel all

over the world without a passport! Today I finally wound up my visit to

Riomaggiore, Italy, of course I did this from my home in Central New York.

It's been a pleasant experience. The scene I have been working on for the past few weeks brings back many fond memories of a day spent hiking from

village to village along the National Trail in Cinque Terre. Putting my… Continue

Curiosity: What is it?


Contemplation: What can I do with it?


Consumption: How does it taste?… Continue

Wonderful Words As Art

" It's Rosa, Aunt Rosa. Wake up, Aunt Rosa;wake up ........I, the dreamer clinging yet to the dream as the patient clings to the last thin unbearable ecstatic instant of agony in order to sharpen the savor of the pain's surcease, waking into the reality, the more than reality ,not to the unchanged and unaltered old time but into time altered to fit the dream which, conjunctive with the dreamer,becomes immolated and apotheosized: left '…

Wendy Harris -Pastels - 4 Paintings

Pastel 1

I live to paint on site in nature, en plein air. I am enthralled by nature and consumed by the challenge of trying

to capture the scene as it changes in front of me. Most of my paintings are completed on site.

My paintings are award winning, nationally collected, and internationally published. I use Unison, Schminke, and Diane Townsend soft pastels on a variety of archival surfaces. I use non-glare glass and all archival… Continue

Tian Tan Buddha - This is a photo I took while visiting my sister in Hong Kong. It is claimed to be the largest outdoor seated bronze Buddha in the world.

I am currently a college student studying in New York City, working on photography as a fun hobby in my spare time. I truly… Continue
