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.
