Black and White  (.......mostly!)

Peggy Ferris, Tom Pazderka and Roger Stevens

All three artists with different visions, using different materials and mediums, yet presenting a unifying exhibition of form and structure. Their palettes are mostly monochromatic (although a touch of color seeps through from time to time).

artist talks

Peggy ferris: saturday, june 24 at 2pm

tom pazderka: thursday, june 29 at 7pm


Silo118 will be hosting talks with two artists featured in our current show "Black & White (.....Mostly)."

PEGGY FERRIS was formally trained in art and design at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague, Holland and at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.  Her return to the fine arts followed a long and successful career as a graphic designer. She currently works in acrylic and mixed media on a synthetic paper called yupo, and on canvas and panels. 

Living and working in the Santa Barbara foothills, Ferris recently launched Chaparral Studios, collaborative art and workshop spaces offering classes taught by California artists.

TOM PAZDERKA is artist-in-residence at Red Barn Project Space UCSB and an instructor at Allan Hancock College. The Czech-born artist's recent work is inspired by the disastrous wildfires of summer 2016.  

Pazderka says of his new series, "Images of smoke clouds from local fires are thinly painted into the heavy blackness of ash and charcoal rubbed into a burned wooden panel. These are the objects of reverie of fire."

If you weren't able to make it to a recent exhibition or if you want to revisit any of the art, Silo118 will continue to have pieces by Michael Armour, Neal Crosbie, Max Gleason, Felicia Olin, Jay Peterzell, Dillon Samuelson and more.  Just ask...
