Novelda (Bo) Ferguson is a local artist who has lived in the Quarryville area all of her life. After graduating from the Philadelphia College of Art she returned to the area to teach art for the Penn Manor School District for 30 years.

For many years she exhibited her Tole work in craft shows, painting on tin, wood, slate, etc. Every year since 1984, Bo has drawn in Pen & Ink for the Quarryville Historical Society annual calendar. Her current interest is Water Color and Ceramics. She has also worked with Linoleum Block Printing, Pen & Ink and Oil Pastels.

In this exhibition you will see her Linoleum Block Print Christmas Cards which she printed by hand for over 40 years. More recently she decided to reuse the same blocks and paint them in Watercolor as a reverse to the print. She then has them printed at Groff’s Printing in Quarryville as her Christmas Cards.
