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 -
We had a great weekend with Robert Kolsters (actually 2 weekends) and his walking tours -- what a hit! We are so lucky to have someone in our midst with his knowledge and willingness to share! His next tour will focus on the story of the Cottage Farm. There will be 2 tours, Friday, July 30 and Saturday, August 7. Both tours start at 4;00 with a presentation (~45 min) in the Arts Center Barn followed by a (~45 min) walking tour. Suggested donation to participate in the tour is $8 ($5 for FHAC members). After the walk, those that wish to participate in a wrap up discussion with Robert may join us for dinner at the Hardware Cafe (optional and paid for separately). Space is limited in the tours -- If you would like to participate, you may reserve a spot by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org -- let us know which date you would prefer.
A reminder that our Postcard Salon is opening this Saturday, Aug 7 and will run Saturday and Sunday from 11-5 pm. If you would like to participate, please let us know by Monday, Aug 2. Drop off of artwork is Wed, Aug 4 from 4-6 pm. We appreciate all "Postcard" artwork-- looking forward to seeing what you come up with! All "Postcards" will be sold for $10 and we will be splitting sales with the artists 50/50.
On Thursday of this week, we're offering Paint with Friends - facilitated by Pat Hanford - from 11- 1 pm in the Arts Center Barn. If you would like to participate, but have not done so before, please email us so we can set up a space for you. A good way to get started painting!
Our Let's Talk group will not be meeting this week, but will be meeting Monday, Aug 16 instead..
Looking forward to another exciting week!
Thanks, as always, for your support!
