Art, architecture and the people that I know.

Frederick Fisher and Partners

with 2 comments

I was very pleased to learn recently that the American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles has honored Frederick Fisher with its 2013 Presidential Gold Medal. In selecting this year’s honorees, the Board chose to recognize individuals who take on leadership roles in advancing the practice of architecture in Los Angeles.

Fred’s great to work with, as he and his firm really know about art spaces. He was immediately sensitive to my needs as a gallery owner, going so far as to include small drawings of Adrian Saxe and Roseline Delisle artworks in his preliminary drawings. He accepted the challenge of intimate viewing spaces within a large volume of space. I’ve witnessed the level of attention to detail that Fred extends to all his clients, so it’s not a surprise to see him recognized like this.

Fred’s other art spaces included the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, the Broad Art Foundation, The Erburu Gallery at the Huntington, the Oceanside Museum, and L.A. Louver Gallery. Congratulations to Frederick Fisher and Partners on the award and the recognition from his peers!

  1. How wonderful that your architect, Frederick Fisher, has been awarded a gold medal.
    I’m lecturing in Japan at the moment but just want to say that it’s a fantastic space in which to show work. I remember the first time I exhibited in 2002 being really impressed by the gallery and the different spaces that are created within the gallery. As a maker it’s a great space to exhibit in.

  2. A testament from the artist is the best kind of award, Jennifer!
