William Bow & Samantha Birks Fisher 

In January, Gallery One features two local art celebrities working in paint and mixed media.

Will Bow is a local muralist, member of PUNCH Projects, and a painter who dabbles in blacksmithing. His quirky portraits and imagery depicting themes as varied as skateboarding and houses on stilts celebrate rural life, nature and connectivity.

Samantha Birks Fisher’s paintings rely on nostalgia, a collage sensibility, and a pure appreciation of marks and brushstrokes on surfaces. The familiar images of our collective memories of pop culture America serve as hieroglyphs in an evolving language. Her paintings start off extremely intuitive and slowly take shape as the layers are built up like an old wall that has been grafittied, painted over, scrawled on, stained, stickered and painted over again. The history of the painting is laid bare on the canvas and the historical context of the images create a language that is both personal to her and hopefully relevant to the viewer as well.
