The folk art fish are on display in the new Pia Sjölin Design Gallery at the Shoppes at Farmington Valley in Canton - just 25 minutes from the Dutch Iris Inn.  Bidders can hook one of their own during the silent auction, which runs from April 1-16, culminating with the gala on the evening of April 16, 6-9pm.  For more information about the event, please call 860.658.4442 or visit http://www.FRWA.org.  New England art and a fundraiser for our “wild and scenic” Farmington River - a great combination!
