Fairborn Art Association News

Irene Ferriman

From Virginia Roche, “FAA has lost a much loved member. Irene Ferriman passed to God’s Kingdom. She is now possibly participating in painting beautiful sunrises and sunsets. She passed on March 15, 2021.”

Irene was a long-time member of FAA. She was President in 1966-1968. Her artwork was just beautiful and so was she! Our condolences to her family.

Happy Spring Everyone!

Fairborn Art Association is active again!

April 6 will be our third meeting of the year; our workshops with Misuk Goltz and our Member Fine Art Show will be in May. We will introduce our Scholarship Winners and the Sweet Corn Festival Queen and King in June, as well as vote on our Popular Choice Awards, and introduce the 2020-22 Board. In July, the BW Greenway will hold their Landscapes 2021 Art Exhibition. Then on August 21 & 22 we will hold the Fairborn Sweet Corn Festival, which will provide a community service to Fairborn and solidify our financial security for another year. It feels so good to be able to spend so much quality time with our FAA friends again.  There is more information available on these events elsewhere in the newsletter.

Dues are payable by June 1 – please make sure you download and complete the Membership Form to submit with your dues (yes, even if you’ve done it before). Please indicate the ways you can help out Fairborn Art Association on the form.  This information is critical as we look for people who have talents that are needed to run this fine organization going forward.

There are some changes in the way we are conducting the Member Fine Art Show and the Popular Choice Voting in June.  These are spelled out in the Prospectus for the show, so please read it carefully.

In May we will be voting on the Board positions for 2021-22.  Everyone is encouraged to participate as a volunteer Board member or Committee Chair.  If there is a position you think you would like to hold, please speak up.  The past few years we have presented a slate of officers to vote on, but that is because we have not had members step up and give us the opportunity to actually make a choice for a candidate.

Our April speaker will be Tim Langenderfer, whose presentation will focus on oil painting.

If you follow Fairborn Art Association on Facebook, you can view the demonstrations for the February and March meetings.  Thanks to Connie and Jim Gifford for making these available to us!

The meeting is April 6, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. The 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. time slot is social time.  Again, reservations must be made by emailing Debbie Cosenza.  Masks and social distancing are still required, so seating is limited, and refreshments will not be available.

Cheap Joe asks, “Why not add people in your artwork?  Are you afraid because you can’t draw figures?  Look at van Gogh, all his figures were ill proportioned.  And how much are his paintings worth?”

Billie Dickson, President

Misuk Goltz Workshops: May 3-5 and May 6&7, 2021

MAY JOURNALING & PORTRAITURE WORKSHOPS: May 3-5 and May 6 & 7, 2021

Misuk Goltz grew up in South Korea and moved to the US in 1980. She studied art history and psychology along with art therapy. After her studies, she worked as a psychiatric counselor in hospitals until she retired in 2008. When she retired she began to paint. Using watercolors, she mostly paints people, trying to capture the unique and intriguing story that each individual carries within them. Misuk has studied with many nationally known artists, mostly watercolor painters. And she particularly enjoyed taking classes from local artists in the Dayton area. She is a signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society and her works have been accepted into the National Watercolor Society International and Member’s juried shows, the Ohio Watercolor Society and the California Watercolor Association. She has also participated in many other juried art shows and has won numerous awards for her watercolor paintings. She has been teaching watercolor painting classes and workshops since 2011. She was involved with Fairborn Art Association artists for many years until she moved to California in 2016. Since 2015 Misuk has been keeping illustrated journals. In her journals, she has expanded her subjects to include landscapes, animals and everything else that she comes in contact with as she journeys through her life. She has traveled worldwide and recently returned from an 8-month trip to Mongolia and other countries in the Far East. Her experiences during her travels inspire her art journaling. Misuk has been teaching watercolor painting classes, workshops and art journaling workshops in California. She is happy and excited to come back to her former hometown and help others discover the joy of sketching and painting in a journal book; keeping a diary with sketches and paintings on a daily basis.

Attached are two documents Misuk has sent us about her Journaling concepts:

Hello FAA Friends,

Here we are heading into March.  We are halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox and heading in the right direction.  People are starting to get their vaccines for Covid-19, hospitalizations are down, we will soon be able to have more activities outside – it feels like we are moving from a dark place into the light.  I hope all of you are feeling your spirits being lifted.

Our March meeting will be on Tuesday, March 2 at 7:00 p.m.  The Board meets from 5:30 to 6:30 in the meeting space, so please plan to arrive after 6:30. (If you do arrive early, you will get to see what the Board does, which isn’t such a bad thing.  You may even get recruited to fill a position. 😊) Our speaker is Amy Gantt, artist and owner of Lula Bell in Oakwood, who will be talking about her art in creating cards.

We are in need of someone to take over the Facebook page of the Sweet Corn Festival.  This is one of the many jobs that Lori Luckner did, and will be pretty active for the next few months.  Contact Warren Brown to let him know you are interested.  The Sweet Corn Festival is planned for August 21 and 22, and we are hopeful for a successful festival this year.

As usual, you will need to reserve your space to attend the meeting.  Please email Debbie Cosenza to do that. Our space will be cleaned prior to the meeting. Masks are required. There will be no refreshments, and if you bring a snack for yourself, please remove everything you bring in when you leave.  Chairs will be spaced 6 feet apart.  We still need to practice keeping everyone safe.

Cheap Joe says, “Enthusiasm is the single most important element in your talent bag.”

Billie Dickson, President

2021 FAIRBORN SWEETCORN FESTIVAL

We are starting the planning for the 39th Fairborn Sweetcorn Festival, which will be held August 21-22, 2021. We need a person who is knowledgeable in Facebook page maintenance to take over the sweetcorn festival Facebook page and keep it up to date-so if you have interest and the ability, get in touch with Warren Brown [email protected] and he can get you started. Warren has attempted to update the page but he feels we need to have a person who is familiar with this type of activity!

Keep the August 21 & 22 sweetcorn festival weekend in your plans to be available to help us pull this off—remember, this is our fundraising activity to keep our association going!! Thank you in advance for your consideration.
