Digital Artist in Residence for Spring 2008
UAS welcomes back Seattle artist John Fehringer as an Artist-In-Residence in Digital Fine Art for spring semester, 2008.
Mr. Fehringer is an award-winning artist who has been highly recognized for his accomplished artwork. He may be best known here for his airbrush paintings of Southeast Alaska created when he lived in Juneau in the 80’s and 90’s. Since moving to Seattle in the mid-90’s, Mr. Fehringer has trained extensively in digital technology for fine art (art for art’s sake) and for applied (commercial) art.
Clients include Columbia Resource Group, a media group based in Seattle with worldwide clients; Watts / Silverstein Inc., one of the original digital media consultants and production companies on the West Coast; and Digicolor Media / Seattle, a northwest digital production house for visual communication. Mr. Fehringer now owns and runs his own digital media company, Fehringer Studios, out of Seattle, Port Townsend and now Juneau. His separate publishing company, Windsong Editions, publishes and distributes his limited edition fine art prints to galleries throughout the US and Canada.
For the Spring semester Mr. Fehringer will teach two courses on digital art in motion and digital art and technology. The courses will focus on digital techniques for creative expression and storytelling. He is also teaching a capstone course for graduating Humanities students along with UAS faculty Jason Ohler.
