Asheville resident Barbara Fisher
produces paintings on canvas that combine both representational and abstract elements that, she says, "hint at a narrative" (see "Trying not to fall," pictured). Fisher arranges elements on her canvases in a compartmental fashion, juxtaposing multiple images and dissonant components in mysterious ways. She has participated in many group and solo exhibitions, including one at the Asheville Art Museum. See her new work at Chapel Hill's Somerhill Gallery in a group show including painter Norbert Irvine and glass sculptor David Van Noppen. Call 968-8868 for details.
