During the entire month of April we will be displaying pieces from not one, but eighteen different artists, all members of the Oshkosh Fine Arts Association.
Since the founding of the Oshkosh Fine Arts Association (OFAA) in 1957, their mission has been to embrace, promote and nourish the visual arts in their community. Creating a comfortable yet dynamic environment for this mission to thrive, OFAA seeks interested and art minded individuals. Their members enjoy the arts and have a passion to share this enthusiasm with others.
OFAA members are actively involved in promoting opportunities in the arts for the community. This group meets monthly, sponsors art workshops several times a year and members are involved with art fairs throughout the year.
OFAA reaches out to individual local artists and artists-to-be of all ages through their awards and scholarships. Over the years OFAA has supported community art programs and artists with contributions to: The Paine Art Center, Oshkosh Public Museum, Oshkosh Foundation, UW Oshkosh, High School Art Day, Altrusa Club, GFWC-Federated Women’s Art Club, Bergstrom-Mahler H S Exhibition Awards, Oshkosh Area Schools Art Awards, Winnebagoland Art Fair Merit Awards, And more…..
