FAA Art Installation "2020 in 2021 - A Better View" Opens Downtown
The Fairfield Art Association announces the annual summer downtown art installation is opening for public viewing on Friday June 4th, coinciding with a First Friday event downtown. Eighteen art works consisting of "Eye Glasses" representing a "Better View in 2021" will be on display outdoors in the garden nodes around the Fairfield Square and up Main Street to the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.
Area artists were invited to participate in 2020, but the exhibit was put on hold until this year, with a twist on the theme. Artists were enthusiastic about the project and there are more entries this year than usual. FAA is seeing works in mosaic stained glass, painting, fun assemblages of materials from old tools, yard items to clever items representing each state in the USA and more. "It is always amazing to see how creative the art works are as they come in. FAA provided the large wooden eyeglasses in four shapes - cat eye, octagon, round and rectangle, along with some guidelines and said 'Get Creative'. The art works will be offered for sale in a silent auction beginning in August going through the September First Friday, when the exhibit ends" says Suzan Kessel Volunteer Director.
Artists participating include: Mike Pech, Rolf Erickson, Kathy Tollenaere, Josie Hannes, Collen Matson, Curt Swarm, Cindy Ballou, Wendy Stegall, Brett & Bonnie Hendericks, Axis Vision, FACC - Mendy & Lindsay, Pamela Landers, Freya Gilrain, JoAnn Katz, Meghann Kurth, Jewell McDonald and Suzan Kessel.
