Who says you can’t come home again? On Sunday, Memphis native Kelly Fischer, an internatinally known artist and writer of children’s books, will be “home” and receiving visitors at the Germantown Performing Arts Center, which is sponsoring a reception for Fischer as part of GPAC’s month-long exhibition of her art.
The reception is at 1 p.m. and will feature both Fischer’s artwork and a selection of her children’s books, which will be available for purchase.
Now a resident of Bern, Switzerland, Fischer, owns a gallery there and is involved in numerous multi-media ventures, including an Internet-based Inter-active treatment of her children’s books with Mirek Tejnicky and Pavel Dort of Prague, Czech Republic.
About her artwork, Fischer says this: "My body of work developed and evolved over time and much of the outcome was not intentional. I pursue shapes and colors that begin with the under painting. The paintings emerge as color and texture is added layer upon layer. My semi abstract portraits tell a story of whimsical spontaneity. Whereas, my landscapes pull the viewer into a world of color, light and emotion."
Fischer is the sister of the well-known investigative TV reporter Janice Broach of WMC-TV, Action News 5.
