Ron Ferreira’s descends from a line of stone masons, but chose the medium of wood turning instead. It’s a practice that requires skill, tools, dyes and working with ones hands. Ferreira joined the woodworking club in 2000 and never looked back, according to the Parker Chronicle.
Ferreira will host a booth at Parker’s Art in the Park festival going on August 6 through the 17th and located at O’Brien Park, 10795 Victorian Drive. Unique wood pieces such as bowls and vases will be on display and available for purchase. Prices range from $50 to $500 per piece.
After appearing in six art shows this year, this Parker Artists Guild member is getting geared up for the Art in the Park.
“It broke my heart because I sold my two favorite pieces last year,” he said in the recent article. “But you can’t store them, and I have to get them out there.”
