Eva G. Farris Art GalleryClick
By: Jeff Ebbeler
For the last 15 years most of my work has been for children's publications. I've illustrated over 50 picture books, as well as numerous e-books, and early readers. My work has always had a narrative and whimsical quality to it, and I enjoy bringing an authors story to life with pictures. I've been focused lately on writing as well. The first book that I wrote and illustrated Click! came out this year. I also write and illustrate the monthly comic series Nestorâ€™s Dock for Ask Magazine, a kidâ€™s science and nature magazine. I attended the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and I currently live in Cincinnati with my wife and twin daughters.
A Perfect Gallery Show for Families at Thomas More College - River City News
On June 21, 2007, Thomas More College unveiled the naming of the new Art Gallery as the "Eva G. Farris Art Gallery." Over 150 friends attended the celebration, which was a surprise to the honoree as part of the annual Thomas More College Foundation Event. After the unveiling, friends dined in the Thomas More Library and had an opportunity to tour the Gallery where a student exhibit was on display.
"For some individuals, giving of their time and resources comes naturally. Eva Farris is one of these special individuals," said Sister Margaret Stallmeyer, former president of Thomas More College. "She not only gives financial support to numerous organizations, but she serves as a committed and passionate volunteer throughout the community."
A portrait of Eva Farris, painted by Thomas More graduate, Taylor Stephenson '07, hangs on the entry wall of the Gallery. Ms. Stephenson is one of two Thomas More art graduates whose work was selected in a national competition to be displayed at Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati.
