‘See the Music’ silent auction starts Friday

Aug 02, 2017
Courtesy of: WERNER ELMKER “A Wind Instrument” by Pamela Landers is one of the summer art installations in the Fairfield Art Association’s “See the Music – Tune into our Vib.” All artworks are in a silent auction beginning Friday.

Fairfield Art Association’s silent auction of the summer art installation “See the Music — Tune into Our Vibe” gets underway 6-8 p.m. Friday in the Main Gallery at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.

The seven art pieces are on view in the downtown Fairfield garden nodes, and will remain there until the September Fairfield First Fridays event.

There will be a minimum bid of $100, with proceeds split between the artist and the Fairfield Art Association.

Recent voting for the favorite Most Totally Tuned In entry went to Susan and Francis Thicke’s “Peace of Music” and they will receive two tickets to a performance of the newly announced Fairfield Arts & Convention Center Artists Series.

Several artists participated in the ninth annual installation: Pamela Landers with “A Wind Instrument,” Susan and Francis Thicke with “Peace of Music,” David Pattison has “Music to the four Directions,” Dori Lewman has “Don’t YA just feel like dancin?”, Rolf Erickson has “Inside Out,” Suzan and Pat Kessel, in a tribute to Ron Prill, have “I guess that’s why they call it the blues,” and Jefferson County Health Center employees Kevin Heisel, Kierston Pacha and Wanda Bagby have “The Old Piano Blues.” The exhibit is sponsored in part by a grant from the Fairfield Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Main Gallery exhibit continues, with the “To Iowa with Love” solo exhibit by Julie Brokken.

“You won’t want to miss this fun, eclectic art show by a successful hometown town artist who now lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The exhibit includes works in mixed media, photography, encaustic (beeswax and resin), and assemblage.” said Suzan Kessel, volunteer director of the Fairfield Art Association.

The display of David Pattison’s Pour Paintings continues in the Studio Sales Gallery.

Because a few openings in the upcoming youth Art Camp remain, parents can register their children for the camp through Friday evening at the studio.

The camp runs Monday through Aug. 11 for second- through fifth-graders.
