About Carolyn Ferris: A surrealistic artist of canvas paintings and digital creations, Carolyn Ferris began her career as an abstract artist. After working with psychedelic psychologist Timothy Leary in the late 1990’s, and on his advice, she shifted to computer generated artwork. It was in 1997 when Carolyn first discovered and delved into the world of rock poster art. Having created work for Santana, The Fillmore and The Warfield in San Francisco, her signature surreal rock poster art is now iconic. Since 2009 she has created poster art for Moonalice (http://moonalice.com), a band that has initiated a significant resurgence in rock poster art since their debut in 2007. In 2013 the artist returned to painting, rendering original works of art from various Moonalice posters. At the exhibition, there will be an exclusive showing of the first-ever “singing canvas”, Carolyn’s recently created 30 inch acrylic on canvas which correlates to “Silver Linings”, an endearing Moonalice song written by Roger McNamee. The canvas, in turn, will be made into a Moonalice poster which will be available at their show at Don Quixote’s Music Hall in Felton, California on December 19th, 2014. Carolyn, who lives in Fairfax, California, finds sanctuary with great music, adventure, and the ability to create her surrealistic worlds for a purpose. For more information please visit CarolynFerris.com and MoonalicePosters.com/artists/ferris-carolyn. She may also be found on the social web on Facebook as CarolynFerrisArt, and on Twitter as CarolynFerris.

About Ann Miller: An artist and calligrapher, Ann Miller founded M2 Design in 1979 in order to pursue freelance graphics and illustration work. She has further developed her letterform and book arts techniques in advanced study with master calligraphers. Having been published in Letter Arts Review, and Bound & Lettered, her work reflects her love of the history of writing and its techniques. In 2002, Academy of Art University requested that she develop online courses in Calligraphy and Letterform and Advanced Calligraphy, which she has taught since. Additionally, the artist teaches letterform design at San Francisco Center for the Book. Ann’s creations include a 12-foot family tree for the actress Brooke Shields which was featured in the NBC television series, “Who Do You Think You Are?”, as well as a series of calligraphy murals for the new public library in the city of Belmont, California. Her presence on the web may be found at Pennib.com, on Facebook.com/stonetiger, and on Twitter.com/AnnCalli.
