Art at the Place ~ Emily Hull

We are excited to feature Emily Hull as our artist for September and October. Emily gathers inspiration from life on Vancouver Island where she lives in Fairfield with her husband, two young girls, a cat, and four little chickens. Her work is a playful study of her life — small vignettes that illustrate a day, or a moment. www.emilyhull.net
The foyer of Fairfield Community Place serves as a space to display art work from local, visual artists. If you would like to display your artwork in our foyer, please reach out to event@fairfieldcommunity.ca
