PHOTO SUBMITTED Rolf Erickson created “Inside Out”  out of a guitar and other materials. It is one of the summer art installations available through a silent auction. Bidding ends Friday evening.

The final silent auction bidding on Fairfield Art Association’s summer art installation, “See the Music — Tune into Our Vibe,” is Friday.

The seven different art creations are available for bids until 8 p.m. Friday in Fairfield Arts & Convention Center’s Main Gallery. The art pieces are all in the downtown Fairfield garden nodes to view, and will remain there until the winning bidders are notified.

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

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

The Main Gallery exhibit, “To Iowa with Love,” continues through the end of September. It is a solo exhibit by Julie Brokken, a successful hometown artist who now lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The exhibit includes works in mixed media, photography, encaustic and assemblage.

The display of David Pattison’s “Pour Paintings” continues in the convention center’s Hallway Gallery.
