Percy Harland Fisher

A lecture by Sharon Cross on Thursday 23rd May, 7 to 9.30

at The Museum & Heritage Gallery, 33 Obelisk Way, Camberley, GU15 3JY (opposite Argos)

Percy was one of three brothers, all talented professional painters. He lived in Camberley for many years and made a living as an artist, working on local commissions and running art classes. He married a local lady, Catherine Hudson and together they had three sons. 20 years ago, the museum raised funds to purchase a number of the paintings, prior to one of the three brothers death. Since then the museum has developed a close bond with the two remaining brother, Alan and Richard Fisher. The exhibition features the museum’s entire Fisher collection plus additional personal ephemera.

The lecture by Sharon Cross on Thursday 23rd May, 7 to 9.30 will be on the artist and his work and is joined by both surviving sons, Alan and Richard. The talk illustrates the work of Harland and his artist brothers, using photographs, family records, reminiscences and images of drawings, sketches and paintings. Plus the intriguing story of how so many of the pictures came to the museum!
