  • Wonderful News:

    • The Fairview Fine Arts Center is very pleased to receive a Lovsin grant through the Northwest Community Foundation. The grant was presented by Frank and Agnes Lovsin at their Peace River Freson Bros store on November 27. The grant is to go towards a new, energy efficient kiln for the pottery studio. Thank you the Lovsins and for all those shopping at our local IGA.

Membership Renewal is due. Please stop by the Centre to renew your membership for the upcoming year.

  • Space Planning Committee: Members Needed. It would be tremendous if we had a representative (or two) from each guild to meet and discuss how we can best meet the needs of all the members and guilds for storage space.  If you are able to help in any way, talk it over with your group and please let Gloria know ASAP.

 

 

If You like the Idea of The Up-Cycle Challenge, Let The Centre Know. This was the 2018 Challenge that will likely be commenced again ih the spring.

Do you like a challenge?

Do you need a little more art in your life?

Are you looking for something fun to do with your family and friends?

Then “Something for Nothing” is for you! It is the FFAC’s new Monthly Up-cycle Challenge. Use your creativity to transform ordinary objects into pieces of art. There are no limits and only one rule: use the chosen item for each month. The contest is open to everyone; young or old, member or non-member.

The list of prompts for the year is available from the FFAC and it’s website, so you can start saving things now! Bring your creation to the art center at the end of each month so we can display it for the following month. While you are there, vote for your favorite item. Winners will have their names proudly displayed on a special “Something from Nothing” plaque in the center for all to see. 

Join the fun!

Projects need to be picked up at the end of each display month.
