In 1889, two brothers, Willard Bundy a jeweler and inventor, and Harlow E. Bundy, a young entrepreneur, opened a time recording clock company in downtown Binghamton.

"I have always had a love for Abstract Expressionism. The freedom of movement, the use of color, and the textural quality has always appealed to me. Abstractions are currently my expression. One style I often use is known as Photo Peinture, a term introduced in the mid 1860’s at the salons and the Royal Academy in France. This technique includes painting over photo-images fixed on canvas.In the process my photographs are joined to the canvas and then the entire painting is completed through a blending of colors, a creation of textural surfaces, and, sometimes camouflaging the photograph. The photographs are taken on-location as well as in my studio. It is always interesting to see people take a “second glance” at my paintings to see if their eyes have deceived them. I welcome you to my Studio and Gallery in Binghamton , NY to view my work or to simply visit and chat about art and history and life."

Windsor Whip Works Art Gallery

98 Main Street
Windsor, NY 13865

Windsor Whip Works Art Center is located in an 1874 Italianate building in Windsor, N.Y. From 1901 to 1951, the structure was the home of Windsor Whip Works Buggy Whip Factory. Until the advent of the automobile, Windsor had been one of the leading manufacturers of buggy whips in America. Over the years, the building deteriorated into an eyesore of neglect. In the summer of 1999, Johanne and Bill Pesce purchased the building and restored it to its original Italianate architecture, turning it into an upscale art gallery and vibrant community art center. A schedule of classes & workshops, seminars, life classes and print making have become a regular feature of Windsor Whip Works Art Center. In 2008 the Art Gallery became Windsor Whip Works Art Center— a nonprofit organization acting as a visual arts resource for people all ages and abilities, serving Broome and Delaware Counties, as well as Northeastern Pennsylvania.
