Catching up with Artist Barbara Fisher

Barbara Comp

Images from January 2009 article.

I’ve always had a passion for art and artists and have spent my past professional career working with and supporting them. When launching this Blog I, undoubtedly, had to include artists. Today marks six years since I first wrote about painter Barbara Fisher. With that in mind I stopped to visit with Barbara last week to get an update on all she is working on this winter.

He was so compelled by her work and commitment he extended an invitation to her to do two exhibition pieces with him for upcoming shows. Shown above is the first called “Heaven and Earth” with Norbert’s photography on the left and Barbara’s painting on the right. To see more on his interesting co-works series visit here.Screen Shot 2015-01-25 at 2.36.05 PM

Barbara recently sold the above painting to an art consultant who placed it in this home in California.Screen Shot 2015-01-25 at 2.39.33 PM Both Kelly and I love the black and white.

Barbara will be in an upcoming show at March 21st at the Upstairs Art Space in Tryon, along with, artist’s Betty Clark, Greg McPherson and Katie Walker. Road trip!Screen Shot 2015-01-25 at 2.33.46 PM

Last, for the first time Barbara is making prints of her paintings available. Visit this link to view her Etsy site and a way to buy high quality reproductions of her originals.

Don’t forget to stop by tonight to visit with her and see her paintings at our Modern Mixer. Again, it is from 5 to 7pm at 828 Design.
