About Ari Ferro


Ari paints landscapes in oils, both outdoors and in his studio.  Although painting was his occasional hobby for many years,

it has become his main activity since retiring about eight years ago.  His training in art has consisted of various workshops,

but his formal education and career was in science.  He is married (Jean) and has one married son (Luke, 30, Boston).

 Workshops have focused on oil painting as well as water color techniques.  Instructors have included Jay Hennifer,

Scott Boyle, Albert Handel, Alia El-Bermani, Marcelle Hooks, Jason Tako, Nicole Kennedy, Bekah Haslett, Chad Smith,

Jim Carson, Jean Grunewald, and Jeremy Sams.  Ari won several awards including Second Place in the

311 Gallery Juried Show (2015), and two Honorable Mention Awards, one at a Matthews Artists Guild exhibit in 2016,

and one at a Paint-Out Event in 2017 sponsored by Mint Hill Arts.  He recently had a show at the Sertoma Art Gallery,

and is scheduled for a show at the Page-Walker Arts and History Center in February, 2022.
