The images in this collection were all made at Mystic Seaport, The Museum of America and the Sea. I enjoy exploring areas with a strong historical component, as this gives an experience of how people lived and pursued their lives at another time. I was fortunate to visit at the time that the whaling ship Charles W Morgan was being renovated at the drydock. This ship was built in 1841 and is now restored and available to visit.

Candace Winter was born into a family of artists and has been creating art since she could hold a crayon. Her work has always been about bold color, texture and telling a visual story. As a teaching artist, she has visited many schools throughout Westchester making art papers with young students in a style similar to that of children’s book illustrator Eric Carle. Using this paper the children make incredible inspiring art. She takes all of these creations made by many hands and arranges them together whimsical murals. As a result of this process, there are always many bits and pieces of beautiful handmade papers left over. Seeing the passion from all of the young artists in these “scraps”, Candace could not bear to throw them away. It was all of these precious pieces that lead her to discover this new way to collage.
Art For Real People.

Wayne Forman has been an optometrist for 37 years and currently practices at Putnam
Hospital. He continues to find the work very rewarding.
Originally from Brooklyn, he attended Binghamton University where he studied biology and environmental science. He then went to optometry school in Chicago.
He and his family have enjoyed living in Putnam County for over 30 years.
Last summer, he fulfilled a lifelong desire to visit Africa and go on safari. He took over one
thousand photographs and videos. The photographs on display are a small select sample.
