WHO WE ARE
The Fairborn Art Association is a nonprofit organization designed to promote and encourage the appreciation and development of art in various forms, sponsor art classes, workshops and programs, and provide community service.
The Fairborn Art Association has been a significant part of the community since its origin in 1956, when thirteen local artists met to promote interest in art and encourage appreciation and development of art for all. The meetings and membership were, and continue to be, open to anyone with an appreciation for or active interest in the visual arts.
The Gallery features members’ and students’ artwork from September through May and the Greene County Senior Artisan Show in March. Workshops with national instructors are held in the Gallery/meeting room in the Spring and Fall. Art classes in watercolor, oil, and colored pencils are taught by well-known instructors throughout the year.
Membership is open to all persons interested in the objectives of the Association. General meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. with the exceptions of January, July and August. Meetings are held in the Fairborn Art Association all-purpose room located in the rear of the Fairborn Senior Apartment Building, 221 North Central Avenue, Fairborn, Ohio.
