Peter Ferber Painting Demonstration

 

 

Join us here at the Art Place on Saturday, October 28 as well-known local artist Peter Ferber demonstrates watercolor painting between 5:00 and 7:30 PM during the Wolfeboro Art Walk.  This is a rare opportunity for you to observe one of Peter’s painting in progress.

Peter will focus on reflections and contrasts in the lake scene (above) and you’re welcome to ask questions and enjoy refreshments.

This is the last month of Wolfeboro Art Walk for 2019.  Other galleries participating in Wolfeboro Art Walk are The Kalled Gallery; Sandy Martin Gallery; Paper, Pen, and Palett; and Winnipesaukee Pottery.  Music and other entertainment as well as refreshments are part of the downtown festivities.  Check on facebook.com/wolfeboroartwalk for more details.

Peter Ferber captures the spirit of New England in various mediums – watercolors, acrylics, oils, and cut paper – and creates works of art that take the viewer to wondrous places, many of which surround us here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.  Using his natural and honed set of skills, he creates works of art that are familiar, yet unique.  

For the past 25 years, 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. Peter has exhibited in over 50 shows in New England and the Midwest. More than 100 reproductions of his work have been made, including over 70 limited edition prints.

The Art Place has two shows each year showcasing Peter Ferber’s new original paintings. The next show will be Saturday, February 15, 2020. The show opens at 9:30 AM and historically there has been a line waiting at the door. If you would like advance notification of his shows, please contact one of our helpful staff at ask to be added to the Peter Ferber Shows mailing list.

 

Peter Ferber Gallery Show Summer 2019

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.
