Welcome to Brian Fisher Studio where you will see linocuts, monotypes, etchings, and digital fine art prints, as well as art cards and colorful sculpture for your home and garden. Brian welcomes questions about process and the story behind each image and thinks, “The next best thing too making art is talking about art!” Brian says, “My art has its’ origin in story. The story may be personally relevant, but often falls within the realm of classical myth and stories that encompass how our world came to be, who we are, what happens when we die and because we live now in this moment in time… what is our purpose?”

21. Vashon Center for the Arts
19600 Vashon Hwy SW
VCA Annual Miniature Show and Eric Heffelfinger fine jewelry collection
Vashon Center for the Arts presents its 16th annual Miniature Show. What is both unique for the art enthusiast and challenging for the participating artists is the size limitation for the art. Two-dimensional art is no larger than 36” square inches (including frame) and three-dimensional work similarly limited in size. The collection is as varied as the 75+ artists showing. Eric Heffelfinger cast his first piece of jewelry at 15yrs old, now, 54 years and 5,000+ jewelry pieces later, he still gets the same sense of excitement as the centrifuge spins the molten metal from the crucible into the mold. His technique, lost wax casting, is combined with a wide range of stones and materials for his fine jewelry collection. He endeavors to incorporate basic materials along with some of the rarest; to honor wood and granite as much as diamond, to place the same value on all our Earth’s resources.
