Fluvanna Art Association donates collaborative artwork

By Page H. Gifford

It was in February that a small group of members of the Fluvanna Art Association (FAA ) decided to leave a lasting impression on the Carysbrook Performing Arts Center in the form of a collaborative piece of artwork by members. 

With the blessing of the Fluvanna County Arts Council, FAA members formed a committee which included president Page Gifford, vice president Diane Wilkin, and artists Nance Stamper, Linda Mullin, and Linda Napier. Together they set out to create a unique piece that would have a permanent home at Carysbrook Performing Arts Center.

The original concept of what the layout for the art would look like was considered and many ideas on how to execute it were offered, but it was the idea of a puzzle that appealed to the committee members.

For nearly three months, FAA members participated by creating each puzzle piece with their signature style and medium. Each puzzle piece represented music, writing, visual art, film, dance, and theater. It took nearly four hours to put the pieces together and with the help of Linda Napier and Diane Wilkin’s husbands, the piece was finally completed.

During the reception on Saturday, Sept. 9, FCAC board members, FAA board members, and members who created the puzzle pieces, community members, including Supervisor Mozelle Booker, and others came to celebrate the arts. The artwork was dedicated to FCAC and the community and will hang in the main hall where the box office is located. The artists’ reaction was excitement and fulfillment in the completion of something meaningful that they created collectively. It was gratifying to see the FAA move the arts a step further in the community.
