FRWA Hosts Folk Art Fish Auction to Support Programs

There will be good food, friends, wine, and we will be auctioning off the most fabulous fish ever! FRWA is pleased to annunce we will be hosting another Fabulous Fish for the Farmington on March 19th at the Farmington Community Center.

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. Fish blanks are $10 and small ones are $5.  We have a limited quantity, so get them while you can.

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. Celebrate the Watershed through the “fin” arts.  March 19th at the Farmington Community Center at 321 New Britain Avenue.  Tickets will on sale now.
