The Farmington River Watershed Association and REI West Hartford have partnered to present the second Fabulous Fish for the Farmington silent auction and gala to be held at REI West Hartford on Earth Day, April 22, 2012 from 7 to 9 pm. There will be good food, friends, music, and we will be auctioning off the most fabulous fish ever! Last held in 2010, the Fabulous Fish fundraiser proved to be one of the most successful fundraisers for the Farmington River Watershed Association.
Drawing on the talents of locally, nationally and internationally known artists, life-size wooden fish will be individually decorated and auctioned off, proceeds help protect water quality and foster environmental stewardship throughout the Farmington River Watershed. Designs for the Fabulous Fish are inspired by the natural diversity of the watershed, the beauty of fish, and the creativity of the artists.
Come for a night of fun and your chance to bid on some fabulous folk-art fish. Check out http://fabulousfishforthefarmington.blogspot.com/ to view fish from the 2010 auction. Fish blanks are available for fish artists at FRWA, 749 Hopmeadow Street, Simsbury during normal business hours. We request a small donation per fish blank to cover expenses. For more information about the event, please call 860.658-4442. Celebrate the Watershed through the “fin” arts.
