Richard Ferguson
“Realistic Art”

Richard Ferguson is an artist, illustrator, designer, sculptor, and photographer. He graduated from The University of Southern Miss, where he earned a BFA in drawing and painting. His career started in newspaper (Editor, AD), magazine, advertising, and retail AD. He is the President of Ferguson Fine Arts and Flint Films. He has designed books, magazines and catalogs as well as illustrating the award-winning book, Christmas Traditions and Legends. This OSA member has always drawn and painted. After years of learning the techniques of the old masters from old manuscripts, he changed his painting style to reflect his commitment to realism.

In 2001, he took a class in sculpture and found that he not only had a talent for it, but enjoyed it in a way he never had painting. Although limited by time and space, he plans on completing more pieces soon. In his free time he writes, directs, and produces short films through Flint Films.

Join us to learn from Richard’s many artistic endeavors. .

Doors open at 6:30pm. The demonstration will be preceded by a short critique session. The demonstration itself starts at 7:00.
