“The Discovery”, acrylic on canvas, Tom Ferrero
ON VIEW: JUNE 21-JULY 27, 2019 | OPENING: FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 2019
The Harlow presents The Places in Between, a solo exhibition of paintings by Tom Ferrero of Vienna, Maine. The Places in Between is on view June 21-July 27, 2019 at 100 Water Street in Hallowell. The public is invited to attend and meet the artist at an opening reception on Friday, June 21, 5-7pm.
The Places in Between is a series of paintings that explore blurred boundary lines and subjects in transition. These works depict people on the verge of a discovery, objects in a state of decay and locations that straddle two worlds. The work is hopeful, sometimes somber and intentionally mysterious.
After an early career as a metal artist and jewelry professor at NSCAD University, Tom Ferrero made the transition to fine art painting in 2013. In 2016 he moved to Maine year round and now works part-time as an Art Instructor at Maranacook Community High School. He also instructs silversmithing classes at a nearby children’s camp where he will be celebrating his 16th season. Tom’s jewelry work has garnered international recognition, has shown in galleries around the world and has taken top prizes in the field. His artwork has been published in 16 books featuring fine craft. His work has been on the cover of Metalsmith Magazine and was most recently presented in Maine Magazine with the tagline, “Showcasing 91 of Maine’s most collectable artists.” You can view more of Ferrero’s work by visiting his website, www.TomFerreroStudio.com or by following him on Instagram, @Tom_Ferrero_Studio.
