About the Artist
Kalisher’s fine art photography is in the permanent collections of museums including The Louvre, The Smithsonian, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and many others. He is represented by David Streets Beverly Hills on the west coast and Anthem Gallery in New York. His limited edition, silver gelatin originals sell for $3,000 and more.
He is an artist who both marched in opposition to the war in Iraq before the war began and has expressed support for the troops over the past four years through his gallery’s annual auction of his fine art photography.
“Our troops are under fire every day,” Kalisher said, “which is why we need to show our support for the troops and for Fisher House. It doesn’t matter if you believe we should be fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan,” Kalisher added. “So long as our troops are getting wounded in combat anywhere in the world, Fisher House plays an indispensable role in our society.”
Fisher House™ Foundation
The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House program serves more than 12,000 families, and have made available over three million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990. By law, there is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs; and Fisher House Foundation uses donations to reimburse the individual Fisher Houses operated by the Army, Navy, and Air Force. No family pays to stay at any Fisher House!
The Pentagon reports more than 32,000 American men and women have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan since the start of the wars in both countries.
