Fairfield First Fridays features gallery walk

Nov 01, 2017

Fairfield First Fridays is hosting a “gallery walk” 6-10 p.m. Friday.

The event is all about wandering through the various galleries and stores, enjoying the art and artists.

The gallery walk is a passport event. Stop and have a passport stamped at each listed location and turn it in to be entered to win prizes. Prizes include the winner’s choice of a piece of art valued at $300 from selected works at ICON Gallery, art lessons with Bill Teeple and more.

Passports can be picked up at any of the participating locations, and should be dropped off by 9:30 p.m. at ICON to be entered into the drawing. The drawing will be at 9:45 p.m. Winners do not have to be present; complete the contact information on the passport to be contacted if your name is drawn.

Passport locations are:

• Americus Gallery, which will be showing Christopher Kufner’s original oil paintings, figurative works and large-format photography on archival paper, original oil paintings by Kim Kufner, watercolor and ink paintings by Genevra Bell, pastel farm landscapes by Gordon Kellenberger, art glass vases by David Lotton, leaping koi sculptures by Dale Divoky, and glass jewelry by Pedro Lujano.

• Art Fifitytwo, which will have recent work by graphic artist Everett Day. His work is created digitally and celebrates fresh and evocative portraits of famous faces, vibrantly “modern” mid-20th century art-deco architecture, along with playful renditions of 1960s fashionable lifestyles. The exhibit continues through Nov. 11.

• Crest Jewel will be showing Washington, Iowa artist John Lukrofka’s “memories from Mediterranean ports of call,” Jane du Brin’s graphite sketches, Margaret Zacny’s silversmith, David Kupferman’s abstract acrylics, Terrence Kennedy’s mixed media art, and Richard Trice’s surrealistic images inspired by nature.

• Fairfield CoLab, which will have new photography by Emmy Picard.

• Henderson’s Gallery & Framing, which will have a group exhibition of work by Bill Teeple, Cindy Ballou, Freddy Fonseca, Andrew Krieger, John Hawkins, Dianne Cable, Ray Lee, Neill Slaughter, Karen Stinnett, Lawrence Stueck, Joan Webster Price, Judy Bales, Stuart McCall Libby. An opening reception is planned.

• ICON Gallery, which will have “The Art of Tony Stenger” on display. The exhibit of paintings is in two parts. It begins with a showing of selected works by ICON director Bill Teeple, and then will gradually expand on the walls into November, becoming a grand salon exhibition reminiscent of the great floor to ceiling exhibitions of the 19th century.

• Paul Morehead Gallery, which is a new gallery. Paul Morehead is a cartoonist, animator, and educator who uses symbols, multifaceted characters, and transformational energy work in his visual work.

• Revelations, which will have work by various artists on display: Jennifer Blair’s canvas prints, John Schirmer’s paintings, Peter Clemens’s yantras.

Many of the local shops and restaurants on and around the square will be open for Fairfield First Fridays.
