Fairfield Art Association
The Fairfield Art Association announces it's 2022 Art Installation theme for downtown Fairfield this summer - "WINDOWS - Through the looking glass". Artists and creative groups, businesses or individuals are being asked to sign up now and get involved in creating a "Window" to be placed in 18 available garden nodes around the Fairfield square and up Main Street to the FA&CC.
This exhibit in it's 13th year, will open on Friday June 3 and remain on display through out the summer for the public to enjoy. A silent auction of the art windows will begin in August, with proceeds benefiting the FAA and 50% to the artists.
A special and safe installation of the windows, with or without glass, will use the heavy metal poles in the ground, and secured with extra strong wire and eye-screws. Complete guidelines are available when you sign up at the FAA Studio in the FA&CC. Studio hours are M-F from noon - 4:30 PM. You can also contact Suzan Kessel by email to reserve a spot and she will email you the guidelines email@example.com.
"Windows are a popular indoor and outdoor decor item these days. It should be a fun project for participants. Pieces can include painting on the frame and glass, mosaic glass, or inventive sculpture, architectural elements added or I have even seen live plants used." says Kessel.
Windows can be old and rustic, or new, within the sizes of Top Width 16"- 32" and Side Height 20"-40". FAA has a few windows available, but Habitat Restore has a good supply at a low cost. You can use any material to decorate or embellish. All materials must be weather proof, construction sturdy and safe. Guideline have more information and detail the installation plans. Participants must be adult or part of adult group.
Completed "Windows" must be completed by June 1, to be installed by June 3 downtown for the First Friday event that evening. FAA is a 56 year old non-profit organization with active artists and supporting members.
