The Butte-Silver Bow Arts Foundation August Art Exhibit features Rosey Ferkovich's work at the Venus Rising Espresso House, 128 W. Granite St.
The reception is during the Artwalk, 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7. The show continues through Aug. 26.
Rosey was born in Deer Lodge and attended school in Gold Creek at Grant Elementary and in Butte at East Junior High. She graduated from Butte High in 1964. She then married Butte resident Tom Ferkovich and had four children. During the 1980s, Rosey worked as a florist at Butte Floral, but her passion has always been drawing and painting. In 2005, Rosey and her husband moved to Kingsville, Missouri, where she took art classes.
In July, Rosey moved back to Butte to be with her sisters and family.
Different techniques that Rosey uses are a palette knife, brushes, and mixing acrylic paints with salt to achieve a 3-D effect. She paints still life, portraits, landscape, florals, and animals using acrylics, oils, and colored pencils.
