Fairfield-Suisun Visual Arts Association Hosts Fundraiser


The Fairfield-Suisun City Visual Arts Association would like to invite the public to an incredible art sale.

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 FSVAA. The sale of artwork will raise funds for the annual FSVAA 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. In the collection there will be several historic photographs of Europe, Egypt and Japan dating back to 1912. In addition, illustrations by James R. Shaver from the early 1900s. His work has been included in such famous magazines as the New York Times, Century, American Red Cross and Life.

Most of the artwork is in excellent condition, but there are approximately five (5) pieces with minor damage like nicks and chipped frames, and broken glass. Most can be repaired or replaced. Additional artwork by former FSVAA members and discontinued artwork will be included in the sale. All artwork will be at sale price.

The art sale will take place on Friday, May 27 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, May 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day at the new facilities at Village 360, 4949 Suisun Valley Road, Fairfield, 94534, home of Back Roads Fine wine vines, The Point Bar and Le Débarquement restaurant. On Fridays from 6-9pm there will be live music for your listening pleasure.
The collection can be viewed online at www.fvaa-arts.org/artsale.
