BOFA has a new logo and is now partnering with the Belvidere Cornerstone, Arts Services Inc. - ASI, and other local creators and organizations to continue the Allegany Arts Association Mission to provide Allegany Arts services and expand equitable access to the arts as AAA closes after forty years of providing service to Allegany County residents.
A charitable project of SheilaLynnK Art Studio, B.O.F.A. was founded in loving memory of artist, writer, poet, musician, Amanda Nicole Curcio. Established to promote creative unity in the Belfast, NY area, BOFA has been active since 2009 and honored to amplify the work of local creators in our annual art exhibit and at SWAN Days Allegany County, NY (2014-2020).

Through independent efforts and in collaboration with Belfast groups and clubs we want to: assist artisans to create work and make it available to the public, provide area artisans with links to information and resources, exchange ideas and skills knowledge with area artisans, create new opportunities to show work in the Belfast Area, provide publicity, collaborate with Allegany County Arts organizations, represent Belfast at the County Level, provide enrichment and service opportunities to community members.
This volunteer organization is funded by the private contributions of its founding members, affordable membership fees, and anonymous donations. All funds received are directly applied to the cost of materials, marketing, and local creative projects and events.
*$6.00 of every purchase you make from my website and
my collection at V I D A*,
helps to fund the Belfast Organization for Artists, The Art For Arachnoiditis Project, and my work to provide equitable access to local creative things in Allegany County, NY and elsewhere.
THE STUDIO & GALLERY ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC
Visits are available by appointment. Studio activities have resumed at local host sites in compliance with current covid prevention guidelines.
My website still supports my portfolio and other PreCovid19 Projects.
Contact the studio if you have any questions about items on the site.
The most current studio content can be found here on Patreon.
Though subscribing patrons receive the most art, there is an abundant amount of FREE content posted in the public activity feed.
