The Fairfield Art Association was formed in the spring of 1966 as a civic organization to foster art in Fairfield and the surrounding area. Thanks to a generous donation from Mr. and Mrs. Charles Herring which was designated for the building of an art gallery and studio, the FAA was originally housed in the Carnegie Library.
During the early years, the visual arts flourished under leadership of founding members Bob Glocke, Nan Cameron, Don Kremer, Dorothy Bell, Mark Shafer, Marty Taylor and others. The first exhibit featured the valuable Schram Collection.
Many noteworthy events have been sponsored by the FAA over the years, such as the annual Dorothy Bell Garden Tour, the Holiday Art Fair, and the annual summer Art Camp for area school children.
