    Wow! What an opportunity to spend a week with one of the most knowledgeable people in the field of Arts & Crafts architecture, Ted Bosley. Upstate New York is loaded with Arts & Crafts lore and was the center of the movement in America. This looks like an incredible week of scholarship and site-seeing. The amazing work that has been done at the Darwin Martin house is a must see. The home is the epitome of Wright’s mature Prairie Style. Not only is the Martin House open, but from what I understand other Wright structures in the neighborhood such as the gardener’s cottage is open as well. It is a gem of a place.

    I am a new fan of the arts and crafts movement and have been enjoying learning about Gustav Stickley, the Gamble House and the Roycrofters. This trips sounds like a not to be missed opportunity for anyone interested in the A&C movement. Thank you to everyone involved in organizing this trip.
