Example of Fisher's Work

Down and Out by Bill Fisher

Beyond the Tartan: BIll Fisher

Sept. 8 – Oct. 17
Opening Reception on Sept. 8 at 5 p.m.

Childhood memory, appropriated diagrams, and reflections of the visual realities of urban decay are the basis for Bill Fisher's imagery. His work expresses a continuing dynamic of time, experience, and personal perception. Fisher believes that abstract painting has the capability to express the complex nature of the human drama we call life.

wightman

From the series Careers I'll Never Have by Bill Wightman

Beyond the Tartan: Bill Wightman

Jan. 26 – March 6
Opening Reception on Jan. 26 at 5 p.m.

One of these works sold at an art auction for $300. I have to admit that I was disappointed!

Although many of the works in Bill Wightman's exhibition are intentionally playful, often behind or beyond this sense of play lie other realms of exploration. For example, in the body of work entitled “Careers I’ll Never Have," the images of Wightman as a professional working in a variety of settings explore his self-realized limitations, whether they be aptitude, abilities, resources, etc. The “faked” scenes also intend to address our own instances of fakery when convincing others of our expertise, skills, etc.
