Old Strip District
Serigraph on paper
Signed “K. Ferri” to lower right
From the collection of P.J. McArdle.
Kathleen Ferri didn’t start painting until later in life, around age 58. She is particularly known for her lively folk art scenes often depicting local neighborhoods and landmarks of Pittsburgh, the Monongahela, and Turtle Creek valleys. While her interpretations may not be completely factual, she explains that her works are nostalgic expressions of her memories of the 1930s and ’40s. Many of her works have been sold as prints as she is hesitant to sell her original paintings.
