Looking for a unique gift idea? How about one or both of our Fair Haven Retrospective books? The original Fair Haven Retrospective book (volume 1) or Fair Haven Retrospective 2020 (volume 2). The books are $20 each and are available at the Hardware Cafe & General Store - which is open daily, next door to the Arts Center. For a $5 shipping fee we can mail a book anywhere in the U.S. Contact us by email to arrange shipping and payment.
The purchase of this book(s) is a way for you to support the Arts Center. It is a look back in time to the Fair Haven of Yesterday and was released in September 2020 at our Fair Haven Retrospective Show. The book contains artwork from local artists as well as stories written by our local writers - stories of the early settlers in Sterling, early businesses in Fair Haven and how they evolved, village characters and life back in the day. This year's book has a section on some of our Foremothers as well as one on our "First" Pandemic. Yes, it was just over a hundred years ago that the Spanish Flu caused such devastation in Fair Haven -- you might be interested to read what recommendations the health professionals had back then! Stop by the Hardware Cafe or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another great gift idea is a gift certificate valid towards membership or any classes. Memberships paid for now will be valid through May 31, 2022. Members receive discounts on classes and on show entry fees. Class certificates will be honored for the same time period. Email us at email@example.com if you are interested in purchasing..
Welcome to the Fair Haven Arts Center!
Dear Friends -
Now that Fall is here, it is time to start thinking about our upcoming Sterling Art Show. The Sterling Art Show is part of Leaf Peeper weekend - this year on Oct 16-17 -- and is our largest show of the year. Leaf Peeper weekend has become a tradition in the Fair Haven/Sterling area -- people come from all over to follow our Leaf Peeper Trail. The Trail goes all the way from Ontario Orchards in the east through the village of Fair Haven and Colloca Estate winery. to Wager's Country Apple & Nathali's Farm Market on the west. As you follow the trail, there are stops at various businesses that offer local products.- from locally grown produce to local honey to maple syrup to cider to wine to locally produced artwork. One stop is at the Fair Haven Arts Center where we are hosting the Sterling Art Show. If a participant stops at all the stops on the trail he/she is eligible to win the coveted Trail Gift Basket (a really nice basket filled with products donated by each business on the trail.). The weekend itself is planned to be around the time when leaf colors are at their peak, so it is enjoyable just to travel the trail and take in the beauty of the area.
So start working on your masterpiece.! Let us know if you have any questions or if you plan to participate in the art show email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 11.
Paint with Friends continues on Thursdays from 11- 1, (thru September) in the barn behind the Arts Center. This is a good way to get started if you have never painted before (we have some supplies you can work with) -- or for the more experienced to come and bring your own project. The class is facilitated by Pat Hanford. Email us if you have any questions, or again, you can just show up as we have plenty of space to social distance .
Thanks, as always, for your support!
