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

arleen fordock, part-time artist/ part-time public service

Anytime is a good time to think of volunteering at Syracuse NY or nearby.  

Having worked as secretary/steno/typist in the past, retirement gave me opportunity to "jump" into the art area.  In retrospect, was in it along with working a "day job" as I did enter "ON MY OWN TIME" at employer and won in the "drawing" category.   In 2004 (approximately) I donated that piece to the RescueMission's auction, and it sold!!  Confidence resulted and here I am.   Founded "CNY Art Forum" in 8/08 due to exasperation that no gallery was openly displaying or selling "amateur" senior-citizen-artists' work.   Had the backing of Kate Clark, our illustrious past-Coordinator of Syracuse Art Commission!.

Then in 2009 joined the effort of the Public ArtTask Force (a sub-group under "40Below") as their plan was to seek a place for and approval of the Public Art Center (bldg).  We worked hard, presented a "white paper" to the Syr Art Commission BUT it was not in their purview.   The sad lack of outside funding resulted in the idea being shelved in 2009.       (It was to serve the City's demographic area of low-income populations, as art is

needed in some form DOWNTOWN---i.e., a bldg with gallery, studios, printshop, CAFE', and teaching areas, AND 24-hr-artist-in-residence! We dreamed of dance classes & music for  students of all ages.   A boon to tourists would have resulted.  If you haven't heard, it's true the art at school systems is not the total experience for ages 10 thru senior citizen & it's not just a Syracuse problem.    Anyone connecting me with a "benefactor"/"politician" with funding, I'll join the effort again!)

Presently, am supporting this new website to the fullest!   Successful art in the whole area (at least 8 counties) is primary goal.

And, any artist can be a speaker at CNY Art Forum's monthly meeting (usually the last Sat of the month at Salina Free Library).   Present your art, with or without business card/brochures, and hopefully connect to public and fellow artists at a free Community room.  Remember, public service can be fun!!
