Fairmont artisans will be making their mark on the community this summer.
The Headwaters Art group will be exhibiting acrylic paintings at the Fairmont Lions’ Den between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 18th.
“We have several artists in our group from around Fairmont and Dutch Creek area so we try to have a couple of shows each year,” said Dodie Marcil. “It’s a nice venue because it’s a log structure and it’s easily accessible for visitors that are in the Fairmont area shopping.”
Brian Woodward, Bill Desbrisay, Elizabeth Stuart, Kristine Soellner, Cat Mcdiarmid, Wolfgang Kunze and Leslie Cartwright are participating in the show.
“We try to have about three shows a year,” she explained, noting the Headwaters Art group began in May 2011. “It started in Canal Flats when a group of us decided to organize ourselves into an art group.”
In addition, there will be a selection of artwork on display from the Headwaters Art group between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 8th, also at the Lions’ Den.
Mr. Woodward, Ms. Soellner, Ms. Mcdiarmid and Mr. Kunze will also be participating in the second showing but the Headwaters Art group is still actively recruiting artisans for the second exhibition.
“Generally speaking, it’s the same group of artists,” added Ms. Marcil, “but there may be some artists (who) can’t be at the show but will be in the show. For August, we’re still recruiting.”
