Jo-Ann is an award winning professional artist. She has been painting for 35 years with over 400 commissioned portraits of homes, gardens, businesses, boats, cars, as well as book covers and logos. She also paints everyone's favorite places-lighthouses, beaches, and historic villages. Her collectors are world-wide and they can commission her to do a custom painting of a special memorable place.
Her latest creations are small holiday snow scenes, some with jolly Santa and his reindeer, others with children with their sleds, and even a snowman with his top hat and scarf. What makes them even more special is that she sprinkles them with a crystal dust so the snow sparkles and twinkles. They are framed in silver and gold and are a big hit around the holidays.
Recently Jo-Ann has dabbled in a little creative photography. It's a nice change for her from painting but painting will always be her first choice.

North Fork artist Bob Kuhne specializes in local scenes throughout the
area. His paintings are on display at the Old Town Art & Crafts Guild
on the Main Road in Cutchogue, where he has been serving as President
for the past 14 years. He also exhibits at Fairs on Long Island and New
England and has won several awards for his work.
He was recently commissioned to do an original painting of “The
Trubisz Little House”, an early Polish farmhouse of historical
significance that has been moved to Hallockville.
Bob has no formal training but has been painting since he was a
teenager, encouraged by his grandmother who began painting when she
was 80 years old. He stresses the importance of children becoming
interested in the Arts and has started an Annual Young Artists Contest
at the Guild to achieve this.
In addition to his paintings, he also creates original stained glass lamps
and windows, and handmade wood-crafted items.
