Ferullo Fine Art Studio opens

Patricia Cole-Ferullo and Dom Ferullo have recently opened their newly created studio/gallery/classroom in downtown Tryon, Ferullo Fine Art Studio (FFAS), located at 140 Pacolet St. just beyond the post office. The studio/gallery/classroom is located in the ground level of their home and is open by appointment.
FFAS is offering classes and workshops, as well as participating in the local monthly Gallery Trot.
The Ferullo’s have an extensive background in the arts, winning numerous awards in national and international juried competitions and showcasing work in many private collections, including the permanent collection of the Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC).
Cole-Ferullo has been invited to have her work featured in a book called “A Step Into Abstract” by Sue St Johns, soon to be published.
She was also featured in The Artists Magazine with an article describing her method of creating abstract paintings. Last year one of her paintings was among the finalists in the Artists Magazine annual international juried competition.
Dom Ferrulo had one of his sculptures chosen for the traveling exhibit g “Carolina’s Got Art” sponsored by the Elder Gallery in Charlotte.  One of his wood sculptures took first place in the juried sculpture competition last year at the TFAC.
Cole-Ferullo is currently conducting an ongoing class in expressive watercolor, the non-traditional approach, each Thursday from 2 – 4 p.m., with open studio from 4 – 5 p.m.
Workshops and classes will be announced soon for the coming fall and winter. To schedule an appointment or for further information call 828-859-3177.
