FAIRFIELD — The Visual Arts Association of the Town of Fairfield-Suisun invites the public to an art sale that now features several new pieces.
The families of the late Jay and Gloria McManigal and Doris Proctor donated more than 150 works of art from their parents’ private collection to the charity, which added new pieces for sale that were donated or discontinued by former artists and members. .
New art includes prints, drawings, paintings and ceramics.
The art sale will raise funds for the annual Fairfield-Suisun City Visual Arts Association High School Student Art Show, Assist-a-Grad Scholarships and the Nor-Cal Regional Art Show from the Fairfield-Suisun City Visual Arts Association.
The artworks in the sale will include oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, sculptures, ceramics, photography (color and black and white), mixed media, drawings, prints and lithographs. The collection includes several historical photographs of Europe, Egypt and Japan dating back to 1912. Illustrations by James R. Shaver from the early 1900s are also available. His work has been included in publications such as The New York Times, Century, American Red Cross and Life.
Most of the artwork is in excellent condition, but there are approximately five pieces with minor damage like nicks and chipped frames and broken glass. Most can be repaired or replaced. Additional works by former members of the association and discontinued works will be included in the sale. All artwork will be at sale price. Each piece is numbered for easy location and purchase when on sale.
The art sale will take place from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on May 27 and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 28 at the new Village 360, 4949 Suisun Valley Road, in rural Fairfield. The venue is home to fine wine BackRoad Vines, The Point Bar and The Landing restaurant. There will be live music from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday.
