This is today's HUGE THANKS TO IAN FISHER for supporting my grassroots, arts writing, fund-raising campaign. I've been following Fisher's work since his artist residency at Redline Denver and last summer we briefly shared a studio space where I watched the daily progression of his large Atmosphere paintings. Fisher is a gifted painter and drawer but more importantly a real stand-up guy in the community. Some day I'll get a photo of him wearing one of his iconic "Miami Vice" outfits. Fisher has two group exhibitions coming up- Biennial of the Americas at The McNichols Civic Center Building and a collaborative drawing project, with Bill Amundson at GroundSwell Gallery.
