The latest Personal Collection Series Exhibit at Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (TAUNY) “Judy Rexford’s Buttons” will close on Saturday, April 29th. This is the last week to see the display which features the extensive button collection of Judy Rexford and her mother, Iris Rexford, who started collecting buttons in the 1960s.

In 1963, Iris Rexford became a member of the North Country Button Club, which her friend Ruth Crandall of Colton had started a few years earlier. The Club, which was active from the 1960s through the 1990s, included members hailing from various places from Colton, NY to Cornwall, ON, Canada, and the club members also took part in the New York State and National Button Societies. The North Country group met regularly to show their findings at monthly meetings focusing on different button types, themes, and materials. The club members did everything from saving buttons off their own clothing to trading, buying, and hunting down treasures at area auctions and flea markets. Their collections included a range of beautiful and unusual materials and imagery—from dainty pearl to military brass, from flower and maple shapes to maps of New York State. Members would also craft with the buttons, mounting them artfully and including them in jewelry, as well as trading birthday cards with special buttons affixed as gifts. While the North Country Button Club hasn’t met in recent years, state and national groups continue to be active. Meanwhile, Judy and others in the community continue to preserve the button collections started by their family members and share the stories those buttons represent.


This year, TAUNY is showcasing personal collections from individuals around our region. Each collection has a special connection to the North Country; most of the items were originally produced or utilized here. These collections represent a diversity of interests related to the folk life and ongoing traditions of our region. TAUNY is pleased to share with visitors objects that are dear to the families who collect them.


This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of Five Elements Living.


The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, downtown Canton, NY. Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (TAUNY) is a nonprofit organization that showcases the folk culture and living traditions of New York's North Country, offering opportunities to experience, learn about, and reflect on issues related to life in our rural region.
