Carolyn Ferris Art Studio, a design studio by day and art classes by night and weekends, will hold its Grand Opening on Saturday, October 13. Festivities begin at 2 PM at 2000 Sir Francis Drake Blvd. in downtown Fairfax. Free food and refreshments will be provided. A free art poster will also be given to all who attend the Grand Opening. A special musical performance will be provided by Roger McNamee, singer and guitarist with the Bay Area’s renowned Moonalice.
The new studio is filled with Carolyn’s eye-popping, highly-acclaimed rock posters, created with a contemporary flair after the revolutionary style of the 1960s psychedelic era. Original art work will be on display, and an opportunity register for fall classes will also be available.
A Fairfax resident most of her adult life, Carolyn took off to Missouri a few years ago to become art partners with legendary artist, Wes Wilson. Wes retired this year and Carolyn’s found her way back to Fairfax. She had created well over 100 posters, many for the local band Moonalice and Roger McNamee. She has also created poster art for Widespread Panic, Santana, the Fillmore and the Warfield, and for events such as a party at the DeYoung Museum for 23andMe. She welcomes bands, event coordinators, and/or other unique businesses to contact her with interesting design projects.
Art teachers Melusina Gomez, MFA and Quinne Fokes, MFA will run classes at Carolyn Ferris Art Studio in mask making, drawing, painting fundamentals, and mixed media, serving ages 6 to adult/senior. Fall courses are 8 weeks. An ongoing live nude model night will be held each Tuesday. Register for classes now and get an early bird special.
