Welcome to the Fair Haven Arts Center!
Dear Friends -
Good News! We are excited to announce that we will be opening our 2020 Summer season with the show Pandemic at the Arts Center on July 17. The show will open from 5-8 pm Friday night, July 17, in conjunction with a new Fair Haven event called, Third Friday. It will continue for 2 weekends at the arts center -- hours to be announced. We hope that all of you who participated in our virtual show will participate in the physical show, as well. We also welcome any new participants who would like to enter. Please let us know if you plan to participate by Monday July 13 -- just send us an email with your contact info and what you will be submitting (if it's the same as the virtual show just indicate that). We will have artwork drop off times July 14-15 (hours to be announced) -- and will have protocols set up for social distancing and sanitization.
We have lots of ideas for this upcoming season, including hosting some art history classes and other discussion groups on zoom as well as in person. This will allow people who have difficulty getting out or maybe don't yet feel safe coming out to still be able to participate remotely. We are also planning to do the Fair Haven Retrospective Show later in July and we are producing a book which will be released in that show. We will be doing other shows during the summer and fall (details to come) and plan to once again do our Holiday Expo. We will be continuing our art classes for both adults and kids and also starting some Theatrical endeavors. We welcome your ideas on things we can do this season -- classes you'd like to see offered, events we could sponsor. Please use this time to communicate your ideas to us.

We have dedicated volunteers who have made this arts center possible -- but we are just a few people on the board and we welcome your support in any way you can. Some people help with gallery sitting during shows, some volunteer to teach, help to deliver flyers, provide computer support,.and very importantly some help to clean!. So if there's any way you think you'd like to support our endeavors, please let us know! Some have more time than money and some have more money than time. Financial contributions are always welcome - we have many expenses just to "keep the lights on" and to advertise our events . Your membership contributions help more than you know.
