Anne Marie Fisher

New Curator for Fresh Air

After 12 years, Ana Bianchi is retiring as Curator of the Fresh Air Sculpture Show. We are very sorry to see her go, but delighted that Anne Marie Fisher will be taking over the position. Anne Marie has over 25 years' experience in the art world, both here and in the United States, in museum, teaching and painting roles. Anne Marie grew up in Monroeville, Alabama and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in English Literature and Fine Arts at Spring Hill College, Mobile Alabama, followed by a Masters of Fine Arts degree at the University of North Carolina. On graduating, she worked for a number of years at the Calvert Gallery in Washington DC where she developed a broad knowledge of decorative arts and antiques and managed all sales, marketing and inventory; as well as the Weatherspoon Gallery in Greensboro, North Carolina, where she performed condition reports, documented acquisitions, and assisted in the installation and maintenance of the collections. Anne Marie also worked for the Southern Arts Federation where she managed travelling exhibitions throughout the American South. In addition, Anne Marie also has teaching experience having taught 20th Century Art History, Color and Design and Drawing at the Art Institute of Atlanta in the United States. She taught and designed courses as part of the Atlanta High Museum of Art’s Community Education Programme and developed a cross-disciplinary course on the artist’s notebook entitled ‘Creativity through Image and Word’ at the Maryland College of Art & Design. Anne Marie also paints and sculpts when she can and had a painting selected for a juried exhibition for the prestigious Phillips Collection in Washington DC. Since moving to England, Anne Marie has taken time out to raise a family but has kept her hand in the art and sculpture world through a number of courses at the Princes Drawing School in London and sculpture courses with leading UK sculptor, Tessa Campbell-Fraser. Over the past year, she has also been working part-time for Cannon Brookes Associates, where she has been responsible for cataloguing a private art library for an art history consultancy. Anne Marie lives in Quenington with her husband and two children and we are thrilled to welcome her to the team.
