Fairfield First Fridays November “Gallery Walk”

 

Fairfield First Fridays is hosting a “gallery walk” for the November 3rd event, from 6-10:00pm. This event is all about wandering through the various galleries and stores, enjoying the art and artists. 

 This is a passport event, stop in the different locations on the passport, have it stamped at each location and turn in your passport to be entered to win prizes.  Prizes include a piece of art by various local artists to choose from valued at $300, art lessons with Bill Teeple and more.

 Artist’s works included in the drawing are on display at ICON Gallery. Raffle artists include, Bill Teeple, John Preston, Greg Thatcher, Joanie McGinnis, Daniel Shier, Tony Stenger, David Kupferman, Irene Murphy and more!

Passports can be picked up at any of the participating passport locations, and should be dropped off at ICON by 9:30 to be entered into the drawing, which will happen at 9:45 pm.  You do not have to be present to win, just complete the contact information on the passport and you will be contacted if your name is drawn.

This is a fantastic way to support the local galleries and artists.  Fairfield has so many talented artists, and to get to see the works of so many, in one night, is a great way to spend a Friday evening.
