Dog Tired Studio and Gallery first opening of the season on Friday December 2nd from 6-9 will also be featuring Vernon Farris, a native of southern CA, showing his latest work "Sea Punk". Vernon began creating art with his first box of crayons at the tender age of four. Fast forward to California State University at Long Beach where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree. Shortly after graduation, Vernon took a job in the surf wear industry creating countless beach related pieces of art. Today, back to his passion, he imagines and produces a multitude of canvas paintings. The current collection, inspired by the ocean, is named "Sea Punk." Vernon creates an underwater world where robotic sea life swims through a rusty garden of metal objects.
