Gary Fisher

“I found painting, my passion, in mid life and it has directed me to a second career based on this love of art. I Love art, I love my life as an artist! I was born and raised on a ranch in Wyoming, went to undergrad and law school at Wyoming and landed in Washington, DC after law school where I had a distinguished career as an environmental enforcement and natural resource attorney with the U.S. Justice Department. 

I like to think of my self as a multi-faceted versatile painter whose artwork ranges from luscious brilliantly painted still life paintings of ripe juicy fruit and boldly painted flowers, to colorful abstract landscapes depicting travel destinations as well as favorite local scenery in the DC and Rehoboth Beach area, and to tenderly and lovingly painted figurative worked in soft warm flesh tones infused with sepias and other warm sensual tones.

I’ve participated in several major public art projects, including Rehoboth Beach’s Dolphins Around Town Project in 2003 and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities project to decorate one of 200 donkey and elephant sculptures, which were on display throughout the nation’s capital in the summer of 2002 as part of the “Party Animals” exhibition. I was one of two local artists to be showcased by Saks Fifth Avenue in 2002 with a major exhibition of his art in the windows of the retailer’s Chevy Chase, Maryland store. In addition, my abstract landscapes have been included in the U.S. State Department Art in Embassies Program.”
