TIFFIN UNIVERSITY, Tiffin, OH— The Diane Kidd Gallery will host “Microbial to the Molecular,” etchings, mezzotints and new frontiers, an exhibition of prints by artist Craig Fisher. The exhibit will run from Aug. 26 through Oct. 2. An opening reception will be held Sept. 11 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served, and the public is welcome.
Craig V. Fisher, (Toledo, Ohio), received his Bachelor of Arts from The University of Toledo, School of Design in 1976, following two years of additional study in the Netherlands at the Pascal College, Zaandam, North Holland. He worked in various positions as a technical illustrator, graphic designer and concept artist.
For the past 17 years, Fisher developed business-to-business visual learning tools. Many of these “maps” and electronic supplemental visual graphics guide groups of people through complex processes, including financial literacy, supply chain, site training and strategic alignment within institutional and commercial organizations. At Healthy Interactions, LLC, Fisher develops learning tools that help millions of people worldwide learn to manage chronic disease states, such as diabetes and congestive heart failure.
Fisher is a passionate, independent printmaker, constantly exploring new and exciting ways to use today’s technology in his creative process while being faithful to time-honored printmaking practices. The intaglio etchings and mezzotint prints blend classic architectural and landscape imagery that transitions from mechanical to organic to supernatural, on both macro and micro scale.
He works from his home studio called Ibis Press Studio. His works have exhibited both nationally and abroad in many public and private collections such as Purdue University (Lafayette, Indiana), the University of Dallas (Texas), the City of Toledo (Ohio) and Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (Japan). Fisher is a member of Boston Printmakers at Emmanuel College and the Mid-American Print Council.
“I would like to think that being a ‘mid-career’ artist is a positive adjective,” said Fisher. “Because, if you are fortunate to live long enough, one of the perks is to be able to glance down both ends of your historical timeline. This allows you the luxury to benefit from ideas and experiences that you were taught during a ‘less digital’ time.”
“Fisher’s prints display themes of science and technology through the use of old and new media,” said Joseph Van Kerkhove, Gallery Director. “His combination of creating work that pairs traditional printmaking techniques with more modern Inkjet color additions creates an intriguing, thought-provoking exhibit.”
