About the Instructor:
Joe Ferlazzo received his BA in Studio Art from Bowdoin College, with a focus on abstract painting and conceptual art. He has been painting abstract work for over 20 years, exploring acrylic, oil, and encaustic mediums. Joe’s work is characterized by the interplay of rich, translucent color fields and vivid, expressionist brushwork. His goal as a painter is to create pieces that have a strong presence in the spaces they inhabit, inviting the viewer to experience them as integral parts of the space rather than simply two-dimensional images hung on the wall. Joe is an NAA artist member and former member of the board of directors. Joe’s studio is in Newburyport, MA.
