Doylestown artist shows at Countryside Gallery


Countryside Gallery & Custom Frame Design features the artwork of “up and coming talent” Alexis Fish
Meet the gallery’s resident artist at a reception at 6 p.m. Friday, July 21, at the gallery at 2 S. State St., Newtown. Admission is free.

Her artwork can be found on permanent display at the gallery, as well as signed giclee and limited edition prints. A full display of her original works is in the front window of the gallery. Graphite is her preferred medium.

Fish’s pencil-drawn collection currently ranges from surrealistic renditions of fairylike women and animal silhouettes to fan art portraits of characters from “Harry Potter” and “Stranger Things.” All are rendered in black and white, sometimes with the slightest hint of color that’s so subtle it’s hard to notice.

The 24-year-old artist resides in Doylestown with her husband, Ilya, and draws a lot of her inspiration from fairy tales, both Disney versions and the original folk tales like those written by the Brothers Grimm. Fish is also inspired by contemporary fantasies and other works of fiction in books and film.

Call 215-968-2246 or visit the gallery online.
