Chris O. Ferguson

Artist Reception: Saturday February 7, 2:30 to 4:30 PM.
"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.
