Press release

"As far back as I remember," says Chris Ferguson, "I've expressed myself through art. At the age of 5, I was drawing cartoons. My 'Toon pal was named 'Patch.'

"In high school, I received training at the Educational Center for the Arts, on Audubon Street and Orange Avenue, New Haven. It was there where my creativity was nurtured in different forms of visual arts.

"After the ECA, I attended the Paier College of Art for four years, where I worked on enhancing my painting and drawing skills.

"I have since married and started a family that is now the subject of my latest work, many pieces of which feature my 2 year old daughter. I hope that my work is pleasing to viewers."

New Haven artist Chris Ferguson has given private and group art instruction classes and at Bee's Gali Art Center in West Haven, CT. His work was previously shown at White Space Gallery in New Haven and in the Paier College Alumni Show in Hamden in 2005, also at Wunderlee Arts, Coleman Design Gallery, and the Paint and Clay Club in New Haven. He was the recipient of awards for his paintings and portraits at the R.S.V.P Illustration Competitions, the Connecticut Bureau of Rehabilitation Services, and the H. Pearce Art Show.

There will be an artist's reception for this show tomorrow, Sat., Feb. 7, from 2:30—4:30 p.m.
