The La Pointe Center Announces the creation of the
Annie Ferguson Art Scholarship
The funds for this scholarship will be donated by her family from the sale of Annie’s paintings that are featured in the LPC Gallery show: August 13 – September 3, with a reception on August 18 from 4 – 7. This is a win- win-win opportunity: you own an Annie painting, the Gallery gets money to grant, and some lucky person receives an arts scholarship.
Annie lived an artistic life as a painter, teacher, gardener, dog lover, wonderful daughter and mother, and dear, dear friend. One of my first remembrances of Annie was her taking her old dog, Bogie, for a walk, pulling him along in a big red wagon. I knew right away I would really like this woman.
Annie received a MFA from Colorado State University and taught art classes there when she lived in Fort Collins during the winter. She was passionate about sharing her love of art and taught drawing and painting in the summers on Madeline through a program she started – The Red Wagon. She loved to set up big, elaborate richly textured and colorful still lifes for her students to paint. Her own work beautifully interprets many of these lush images that she favored.
This scholarship will be administered by The LPC Gallery where Annie served for years as a Director.
There will be one award each year which can be used for classes and/or materials. The award is based on merit and is totally at the discretion of the Gallery Directors. More information to follow.
