Changing Faces Aaron C. Fisher
August 10 - September 10
The Arts Council presents the work of Aaron C. Fisher in Changing Faces. This exhibition is held in conjunction with Safe Streets Weekend, a Princeton community celebration of the Witherspoon-Jackson Community and will share stories of community, faith, hope and history.
Born in Princeton, NJ in 1963, it seems as if Aaron began drawing right away. “My sister is also an artist and I saw how well she painted, so I wanted to do the same thing.” Aaron studied Marketing Art & Design at Middlesex County College and soon thereafter started painting on textiles at a local flea market. “This is where I first got comfortable using an airbrush and I soon started painting on canvas. I prefer painting with acrylics and inks – my style goes from super realism to playful human figures with long, exaggerated bodies.” Aside from the visual arts, Aaron is a former musician who has toured the world as a member of a national recording act. “I can honestly say that I’ve met and shared the stage with all of my idols, even became good friends with a few of them. Even after all the excitement of concerts and after-parties, I had to come back to my first love – painting.” Aaron has done numerous exhibits around the state of New Jersey, including the Annual Plainfield Art in the Park, where he has taken first place Professional Oils & Acrylics for four years in a row. “I take pride in the fact that my work can put a smile on someone’s face.” Aaron’s work hangs in the collections of Avery Brooks, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Bette Midler, and many others. “God has given me a gift and I would like to share that gift with others.”

The Mask of Femininity: Feminist Portraits
“The focus of work is a feminist, gender equality and women’s rights project, which explores the way women are viewed and society’s expectations of them. A series of portraits of feminist icons, show strong, powerful and self-motivated women, some of whom have reached iconic status for their work and influence, and in themselves are agents of change in society. Female icons are at the very forefront of the women’s rights movement because of all the things that these women have achieved and the circumstances in …
