‘Ford Fine Art’ shines a spotlight
on the Masters of Latin American Art

There are few private art galleries in the country where you can find major works by Benjamín Cañas, three decades of paintings by Armando Morales and large, vintage pieces by Alejandro Arostegui.

Plus significant works by Mexican masters Diego Rivera, Francisco Toledo, Jose Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Jose Luis Cuevas and Sofia Bassi. Not to mention South American masters Roberto Matta, Claudio Brava, Ignatio Iturria and Joaquin Torres-Garcia and Cuban masters Wifredo Lam, Tomas Sanchez and Oscar Garcia Rivera.

But you can find them all at Ford Fine Art in Delray Beach.

Ford Fine Art specializes in Latin American masters. Tucked away on NE 5th Avenue, two and a half blocks north of Atlantic Avenue, the gallery houses a unique and valuable collection of museum-quality art as well as works by talented newcomers.

Gallery director Suzanne Snider says the current collection is based on owner Mark Ford’s personal thirty-year-old collection plus more than a thousand pieces acquired at auction and from private collectors and the artists themselves since the business was formed in 2008.

The quality of the collection is apparent the moment you step into the Ford Fine Art courtyard with its tranquil garden and bronze sculptures. Suzanne welcomes you into the gallery with a warm smile and the offer of a tour, complete with her personal stories about the artwork and the artists.

“People are amazed when they see the gallery,” says Suzanne. “They say they can’t believe something like this exists in Delray Beach.”

Suzanne and Mark have traveled extensively in Latin America over the years, meeting artists and critics and dealers – gradually developing a network that furnishes the gallery today.

In recent years they have been focusing on Central America – an area of Latin America that they believe has the greatest potential for appreciation in the coming years. Working with a half-dozen top Central American art scholars, they are putting together the first comprehensive book on the masters of Central American Modernism. (To be published early next year by Cap & Bells Press, NYC.) And later this year, Ford Fine Art will be opening a new gallery at Rancho Santana in Nicaragua and an additional space in Delray Beach for private showings.

The gallery is home to occasional art shows, local events, networking groups, and personal gatherings. They also help collectors with valuing works and some authentications.

Delray residents are always amazed by this hidden gem located right in their own backyard. So if you are interested in fine art… in seeing the work of master artists… this is the place to go. In fact, it is the only place to go between Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale!
