Ft. Madison Area Arts Association proudly lifts the curtain on this years annual all member exhibition. FMAAA member artists roll in with their latest works guaranteed to light the tinsel on any holiday tree with an iconic assortment of mediums. These raw materials of glass, paint, metal, clay, silver, wood, and word (poetry) combine for the ornaments on a mixed media tree that delights all ages. The FMAAA artisans are not only located in our immediate two hour radius in the Tri-states, but also contain former Madisonian dwellers, who create willfully in their new states of residence, but still maintain contact with the town in someway. Join the artists for their annual gathering at a reception on December 12th from 5:00-7:00pm at 825 Avenue G. MidWestOne Bank is the sponsor for the exhibition and the public is always welcome!

At the reception the FMAAA Board of Directors will unveil the winners of the annual stipends in the categories of Best of Show ($200), Best Photograph ($50), Best 2-Dimensional ($50), and Best 3-Dimensional ($50). This show always opens a bit later in the month, normally garnering a three week period in December. But for potential holiday shoppers it is soooo worth the wait. Several pieces do always find themselves under a particular tree with knowledge that works will leave the gallery after the reception for trips to new dwellings. Artists participating in this years annual are as follows: Carol Gunn, Curt Swarm, John Sheaffer, Don Hetzel, Tim Laffey, George Gaudette, Jessica Kirby, Sharon Bartlett, Doug Ewing, Jon Rhodes, Virginia Riddle, Jason Rausch, Donna Guy, Jim Knapp, Dean&Janice Rockwell, Carroll Michalek, Carlene Dingman Atwater, Linda Gregory, Laurel Gillespie, Jerry Granaman, Kristine Souder, Vicky Dovenspike, Jim McLain, Julie Long, Jennifer Klingele, Rebecca Rodgers, Jim Topic, Erika Wolfe, Harriet Souder, and Larry Wright.

Join with them in festive spirit this Friday or view the exhibition for the remainder of the month Tuesday-Saturday from 10-5. The halls are decked out at the FMAAA so come in from the cold to enjoy the view!
