ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Three months from turning 70 I found myself needing a creative outlet. In the past I'd made gemstone earrings, tried my hand at pastels (once - too dusty!) and wanted to explore something new. I went to the local art supply store to find some ideas, and got really excited about attempting watercolors. 

What a ride this has been! For me, it all starts with colors, and then I just follow where the colors lead me. I rarely know what the painting will look like until it starts building on the paper. 

I hope that you enjoy viewing these paintings as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them.

Deb Fischer's art will be up from 12/1/17 through 1/31/18.  The opening will be Wednesday, December 6th 6-8pm.

Did you know that the great Pablo Picasso had many pets, including a white mouse and a goat? And that Andy Warhol loved his dachshunds, Salvador Dali liked ocelots and anteaters, and Georgia O'Keeffe had a passion for chows and Siamese cats? Artists and Their Pets tells these stories and many more with full-color illustrations and a chirpy narrative that will delight both art buffs and pet enthusiasts. 

Violet Lemay is an award-winning author and illustrator whose children's books include 100 Pablo Picassos, My Foodie ABC, and the Local Baby series, which includes New York Baby, Chicago Baby, and Beach Babies. Violet worked as a professor of illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Georgia.  Violet currently lives in Auckland, New Zealand.

The event is all ages and kid-friendly with drawing opportunities a-plenty.
