He is currently a participant in the 35th Annual Faber Birren Color Show located in Stamford, Conn. Fischer is actively engaged in painting and continues to extend his work as an emerging artist. An Olmsted Falls, Ohio resident, Fischer works as an instructor at the Cleveland Institute of Art, where he teaches drawing, design and material color.
