Joe Ford, painter Joseph Ford has worked in the arts field for over 30 years. He taught air­brush tech­niques at Cham­plain Re­gional Col­lege, as well as do­ing jew­elry de­sign and color sep­a­ra­tion within the print­ing in­dus­try. Ad­di­tion­ally, he has worked as an artis­tic direc­tor and, most re­cently, as a graphic illustrator for Im­pact etch­ing ma­chines. With his valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence in photo re­touch­ing, graphic de­sign, il­lus­tra­tion and var­i­ous paint­ing tech­niques, Joseph’s oil paint­ings dis­play yet an­other as­pect of his many tal­ents. Dick and Rick Tracy, wood turn­ers Mostly self-taught in his spare time, Richard C. Tracy has cre­ated ex­ten­sively in wood and metal work for more than 60 years. Dur­ing this time he has made lit­er­ally thou­sands of wooden toys and ar­ti­cles for the com­mu­nity and fam­ily, inspiring them with the va­ri­ety and play-value of hand­made items. Richard F. Tracy took up wood turn­ing in 2012, both for per­sonal plea­sure and as an op­por­tu­nity to spend qual­ity time with his fa­ther. Most of the wood used in his projects comes from lo­cal trees and of­ten the raw ma­te­ri­als for his cre­ations are res­cued from the fire­wood pile. To show off the nat­u­ral beauty of the wood, he uses mainly nat­u­ral oil and wax fin­ishes. For more in­for­ma­tion call 819 564-0409.
