John Fernie

I studied the arts while attending Colorado College, the Kansas City Art Institute (BFA) and University of California Davis (MFA) and showed my work from the late 1960’s to 1980 when I returned to my childhood interest in business.


My work has been shown at galleries and museums including the University Art Museum, Berkeley; San Francisco Museum of Art: Documenta in Kasel, Germany; Kunstmuseum, Luzern Switzerland; Musee d’Art Moderne, Paris; John Gibson Gallery, New York.


Growing up on the prairies in south central Kansas I always admired the austere and beautiful prairie landscapes which were dotted with metal grain elevators built from the late 19th century until the 1950’s.  My recent work is of “memorials” to these disappearing icons of the plains.
