Fairfield Art Association opens format for Membership Exhibit The Fairfield Art Association announced a new exhibit format and is changing up its several year practice of showcasing just “canvas artworks” in its upcoming 2022 annual Membership Exhibit. The 56 year old organization is going back this year to its tradition of inviting artists to submit artworks in any medium. This means jewelers, sculptors, photographers, fiber artists, painters in any media, potters, and those working in mixed media or drawing are encouraged to participate. Also a change this year is up to three entries per artist can be submitted and as usual, the art must be new. Wall hanging pieces can be any size up to 24 inches wide or tall and ready to hang. The Membership Exhibit will open to the public Monday – Friday 9am – 5 pm at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center. A membership event will be planned for the exhibiting artists, members and guests, with cash art awards, “Public’s Favorite Vote Award” and artist’s critique later in March. About Fairfield Art Association memberships: There are six basic adult categories to join in, from individual/artists, family, friend, business, patron, and benefactor. The FAA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Memberships support classes, exhibits, public art projects, and many events for all ages. “With the many artists in Southeast Iowa practicing their individual art forms, this could be a surprisingly huge exhibit,” FAA Volunteer Director Suzan Kessel said.
