Fairfield-Suisun Visual Arts Association Announces Fundraiser


FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield-Suisun City Visual Arts Association invites the public to an art sale in May to raise funds for the organization.

The families of the late Jay and Gloria McManigal and Doris Proctor donated over 150 works of art from their parents’ private collection to the association. The sale of artwork will raise funds for the association’s annual high school student art show and for Assist-a-Grad scholarships.

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. Several historical photographs from Europe, Egypt and Japan dating from 1912 are part of the collection. Illustrations by James R. Shaver from the early 1900s are also included. His work has been featured 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.

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 360 Village, 4949 Suisun Valley Road in Suisun Valley. Village 360 ​​is home to BackRoads Vines, The Point Bar and The Landing Restaurant. There will be live music from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on May 27.

The collection can be viewed online at www.fvaa-arts.org/artsale.
