Fairfax Art League

Fairfax Art League The Fairfax Art League (FAL) is a vibrant organization comprised of local and regional artists comin Wood complex.
(13)

The Fairfax Art League was founded in 1986 by six artists exhibiting their work as a group in the John C. In 1987 the six artists, after much consideration about the name this new group should adopt (Guild, Club, etc.), chose The Fairfax Art League. League was selected since League, by definition, is a covenant between persons. In our case the covenant is to promote art in the community. In 1988,

the League applied for incorporation through the Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts resulting in the League's incorporation as a Non Profit Corporation in February 1989. In the years since its inception the League's membership has grown to over 100. Our Galleries:
Currently Old Town Hall is under renovation and our gallery there is closed. Fairfax Art League exhibits at venues around the city. We have an ongoing show at The Church of the Good Shepherd and the City of Fairfax Regional Library. We have opened a new gallery: the Kathryn Higgins Art Gallery and Studio.

Tim in his own words …
“"I also grew up seeing the artwork of my family members William Trost Richards, Francis Davis Millet, Kathleen McEnery, and most importantly, my grandfather Michael Cunningham. Both my great-grandmother Kathleen and my grandfather Michael passed away seventeen years before I was born. Still, through their paintings, they showed me that a career as an artist was within reach.I studied art with oil painter and illustrator Brian Jekel and other excellent teachers at Pensacola Christian College (PCC). The art classes at PCC focused on representational painting rather than modern art or abstract art. During my four years there, I learned a process for creating a painting that I still use today. Immediately after graduating in 2010, I began my career as a professional artist.
In 2014 Southwest Art recognized me as an emerging artist in their “21 under 31” article. Since then, my landscape paintings have won awards from the PleinAir Salon, the Portrait Society of America, the Art Renewal Center, and the Oil Painters of America."
This event is funded by a grant from the City of Fairfax Commission on the Arts.
