Bob Fergison Memorial
October 1, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
There will be a celebration in honor of the late Bob Fergison on Saturday, October 1, at 5:00 PM at the Josephy Center on Main Street in Joseph. Bob spent many happy years living, cooking, painting, working in the foundry, and doing his own sculpting in the Wallowa Country. Fergison dinner parties were famous, and Bob’s art and friendships were warm and spontaneous. Oregon Art Beat did a special on him, which, fortunately, played before he passed in April of this year. There will be piano music provided by Gail Swart & Seth Kinzie.
There will be refreshments and stories, and a small bronze “Ferigison Fish” will be raffled off as a Josephy Center fundraiser at the event. $10 raffle tickets (3 for $25) are available online under Events and at the Center. Please join us!
Bob had lived here since 1989. He specialized in art renderings of boxers, horses, and nude figures. His inspiration came from Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, and Max Beckmann.
