Midwest, 1967 - currently residing in rural Tennessee, United States

Sher Fick holds a BFA Painting/Sculpture (2006) from Middle Tennessee State University and has studied at the Santa Fe College of Art and The Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. While living in the Florida Panhandle, Fick was nominated for the Cox/Bravo Channels Champion for the Arts Award. Fick's work explores personal and cultural archeology. Motifs include childhood remnants and found objects, safety pins and disassembled doll parts. Many artworks explore the origins of nursery rhymes, fairytales, and childhood treasures.  Materials utilized include mixed media assemblages with encaustic, altered garments, and fiber constructions. Recently Fick has taken her creations to new heights in the creation of outdoor installations.  Art Critic David Maddox found Fick's work "dealing with childhood and domestic matters handled in . . . a pleasurably lively manner and that the materials were arranged in a . . . ceremonial and ritualistic way". (, April 2006).

Specific to Rapunzel's Tower:


Fick has interned and subsequently worked for Installation Artist Adrienne Outlaw at her Nashville studio.  Fick continues Outlaw's art advocacy by extending opportunities to new, emerging artists.  For Cheekwood Art & Garden's 2008 Happily Ever After exhibition, she has hired two former studio mates from MTSU to create the portrait panels for Rapunzel's Tower- Denise Johnson will create an image of the Enchantress and Selena Long will create images of the King/Queen (Rapunzel's erstwhile parents). 


As a former elementary art teacher, Fick especially enjoys creating art specifically for children.  Rapunzel's Tower will include: rock climbing wall with rappelling rope (Rapunzel's Braid), silly mirrors, discovery panels, and a letter search for the letters spelling out Rapunzel's name.  Each aspect has been chosen to cover the imagination of children of all ages: from infant to the adult-young-at-heart.
