On Saturday, August 3rd, The Art Place in downtown Wolfeboro held its semi-annual Peter Ferber Gallery Show featuring new original paintings by local well-known artist Peter Ferber. The show continues until August 17 or as long as the paintings are available.
Peter Ferber has been showing at The Art Place gallery in downtown Wolfeboro since the early 1990s. Each year the summer (August) and winter (February) shows draw people from near and far, some of whom line up during the early hours to catch a first glimpse of his new originals and hopefully take one home.
Peter paints in a variety of mediums using watercolor, oil, acrylic and cut paper. One thing that is constantly reflected in his work is his love for nature and sense of home, as well as his keen eye for detail. “My desire is not just to produce a pleasing image, but to have those who see my work share something of the idea, the feeling, the moment of inspiration that moved me do the painting,” shared Peter.
Since 1994 Peter has also painted the official posters for the New England Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society’s annual show, which also come as highly collectable artist proofs. He has exhibited in over 50 shows in New England and the Midwest and more than 100 reproductions of his work have been made, including over 80 limited edition prints.
The Art Place is the exclusive gallery for Peter Ferber’s original artwork and produces most of his limited edition prints.
