Celebrating his life’s work: fredfscherer.com
My father was an early and steady influence on my art making. As a child, I’d play hooky by commuting with him down to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City where I’d spend the day roaming the halls while he painted. Many times I’d sit on the edge of a diorama watching him work. March 1, 2018 will be the 103rd anniversary of his birth. I welcome and encourage you to visit and experience this display of his work: fredfscherer.com
FACES: WOVEN VESSELS
While working late one summer night, my torn paper weaving seemed to call for a deeper dimensionality. That piece started a collaboration with artist Jackie Abrams. By interacting with each other’s ideas, we are communicating through our shared work. Here below are 4 views of our newest piece:

“Everyday Mermaid” Book Prototype is Complete
California poet and friend Christina Isobel and I have been working on our book collaboration for several years. In responding visually to her poetry, I discovered a vibrant language of symbolic abstraction. Here across my studio wall, like a scroll, are my fabric panels overlaid with Christina’s poems. All 34 full spreads were then scanned, printed, trimmed, folded, and hand-built into a prototype of the book. We are looking for a publisher.
