Drawing to be held at 9:45 pm, you do not have to be present to win.

There are six passport locations! Fairfield Art Association, Crest Jewel, Cindy’s Artbeat/Henderson’s, ICON, Art 52, and Carnegie Museum. There will also be many other locations open on and around the square with activities, as well as for dining, and shopping.

Here’s just a snippet of what you’ll find along the Fairfield First Fridays route this month, (roughly) between the hours of 6–9:30 p.m.!

Golden Hour Trout by Carla & Duncan Brown

ICON Gallery, located on the west side of the square, presents Golden Hour Trout, showcasing photography by Carla and Duncan Brown. The exhibit reveals the rich variety of colors and textures in cast iron when photographed during the “golden hour.” The artworks are macro photographs of cast-iron street gratings that have been cast with a bas-relief sculpture of a trout fish.

Flowers by Irene Murphy

An exhibit of monochrome flower paintings by Fairfield artist Irene Murphy will also open on November 1st at ICON Gallery, with a reception and walk-through scheduled for Thursday, November 6, 7:30–9:30 p.m.

At Home Store Hosts a Fiber Arts Show … & Finn Sheep!
Gemma and Rosie, the infamous Finn Sheep, will be receiving lots of love (and vegetables!) behind the At Home Store from 5-7 p.m.

For the third consecutive year, the At Home Store invites you to “Meet Your Sheep” early in the evening during the Fairfield First Fridays event. Gemma and Rosie, two adorable Finn sheep from Prairie Farms Woolery in Danville, will be visiting the store garden from 5–7 p.m., bringing with them a selection of freshly spun wool yarn for sale.

The Portrait Show at Henderson’s Gallery
