About the Artist: ANDREW

Andrew Dumar was born in York, New York in 1965. An art scholarship afforded him an education at SUNY New Paltz 1984-1986 and later the University of Buffalo 1986-1990, where he studied with internationally acclaimed artists such as illustrator Alan Cober and painter Walter Prochownik.

Dumar draws the viewer deeply into his work by using hundreds of small images to create his portrait collages, and holds their view with his use of paint and fine draftsmanship. In short, the artist invites the viewer to meditate on the small things that make bigger pictures.


If you are interested in seeing more of Andrew's work or would like him to make something personal for you, please see the attached brochure for more information!

About the Artist: DAVE

Dave Paprocki has been in the Rochester, NY music scene for over 50 years.
At 15, he was the drummer with "The Jesters" just before the British Invasion started.
He then moved on to play with "The Knorks" and then "The Howse" before being drafted into the army.
Upon returning home, he played with short lived heavy rock band "Sprectum".
 His musical taste changed in the late 70's where he and several friends formed a bluegrass/countryrock band,
"Live Oak". After several years of informal, good time gigs with Live Oak, his tastes changed again. This time,
he was turned-on by cajun/zydeco music. he quickly placed an ad in the local music newspaper, searching for
other "old guy" musicians to join him. Russell Roberts (accordion), quickly responded to the add, and "Chanka Chank"
was formed. over the years, Chank grew in popularity and were well known as the most sought after regional
Louisiana style band. They released two CD's along the way,  and had the honor to be the opening band for any
Louisiana bands that rolled throught town.  Chanka Chank also traveled and opened for the late, Boozoo Chavis      
and were honored to be invited to, and play at Boozoo's home town dog hill festival in Lake Charles, LA.
 After Chanka Chank disbanded, there was a short layoff and the drums put away in favor of a washboard.
Several open-mike sessions around town quickly led Dave to start jamming with a 3 piece acoustic blues band, 
"Ancient Youth", releasing 2 home made CD's. "The Genessee Jug Sliders" came next, (one live CD) and finally
he joined an already formed "Crawdiddies". Dave presently plays washboard with two other bands besides the Crawdiddies, The Cottontoe 3 and The PV Nunes Band.
It's not just a washboard he plays. Attached to his boards, he has several  other percussion noisemakers;
a cymbal, measuring cups, wooden and metal "found" objects, a small tom tom, an old bunt cake mold (floor model)
bells/whistles, and bottles and cans.
Having all the extra add-ons, he adds a great deal of texture to the groups.
In the past several years, Dave has taken his washboards in a different direction. He is now assembling wall-hung
art pieces, using a washboard as his canvas. Having put together over two dozen decorative boards, he's busy scouting
out venues for showing them and has already displayed them in several regional art galleries and other public places and
open-air art shows. He now brings his collection to GO ART! in Batavia, NY, for a 2 month showing.
