Oceanside Museum of Art - Auction 2018 by Christopher Ferreria

It's a privilege to be included in this year's roster of featured artists donating work for the Oceanside Museum of Art's auction and party. It'll be great to meet the artists and art lovers that evening and hope all the work sells for top dollar for the benefit of all.  Two of my Mandalas have been selected for auction: one from the April (is the cruellest month) suite and another from the Always Faithful/Semper Fidelis suite. A special thanks to Vallo Riberto and everyone at the Oceanside Museum of Art for all their hard work!


Portraits 2018 Exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography by Christopher Ferreria

Opening on December 22, and running through January, is the Portraits 2018 exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado. I'm incredibly honored to be included in this show juried by Paul Martineau, an associate curator in the Department of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum. He selected the portrait of Matt, David, and John in their home in Boonville, California, from my Home is where one begins series. It's humbling to see this body of work still moving about the world in this way.


On the way to Santa Ynez... / President's Day Weekend 2017 by Christopher Ferreria

The strongest storms hit parts of the California coast the weekend I was invited to visit Andrew Fleming's ranch in Santa Ynez. Luckily, I missed the hardest of the rains when I had to be on the road between San Diego and the beautiful Central Coast of the state. As cliche as it sounds, each morning I woke up to blue skies, fresh green pastures, and horses grazing upon grass before the dense rain clouds set in the afternoons at Rio Ynez Ranch. I loved it. Forever grateful to Andrew for his hospitality and the honor of photographing him for the Home portrait series. I hope I get to visit again soon! (Special thanks to Eric, Alex, and Mark!)


'Nasty Women & Bad Hombres' / Southwestern College by Christopher Ferreria

Southwestern College's biannual art faculty exhibition opens Thursday, February 2 and runs through February 23. I'll be showing two of my larger prints from the Home is where one begins series. Thank you to Vallo Riberto whose attention to detail, tireless good cheer, and continued support are always very much appreciated and deeply humbling.

Home Portraits in 'Identity' at Midwest Center for Photography by Christopher Ferreria

I just got word that two images from Home is where one begins have been selected for the Identity exhibition at the Center Gallery, Midwest Center for Photography. I'm very excited to show there and doubly excited that Home continues to move about the world. Wish I could attend the opening, but for those nearby please go and support MWCP and the other artists in the show!

Thank you MWCP for this opportunity to show my work, as well as Hawk, Michael, and Casey for their support and letting me share your lives with the public.
