Davies was born in Queens and for many years had large studio on 14th Street from which he could roam the city streets drawing inspiration for his work. He also lovingly restored and maintained a home in Sag Harbor.
Another friend of Ted’s, Sag Harbor photographer Linda K. Alpern, commented on his generosity as a teacher and artist as he opened his dark room to her and taught her new technical skills. This generosity of spirit sings in Davies’ charming evocations of an older New York City, carved in the most humane and endearing of mediums, the wood-block print. Do not miss the opportunity to see this wonderful work.
