Stacey Hurlin"Everyone has that creative impulse: it's what we have in common." So says arts advocate, Fairfield First Fridays Art Walk founder, and visual artist Anastasia Kirtakis Hurlin (a.k.a. Stacey Hurlin). How did this dynamic Fairfielder thrust the impulse to showcase art every month on the Fairfield town square into a reality that will soon celebrate 13 years of existence? That's over 150 diverse & delightful art-focused social gatherings in a town with less than 10,000 people!

Expressing gratitude towards the hard-working souls who steered the First Fridays Art Walks after she bowed out and toward art mentors Bill Teeple, Lynn Marshall, and Chris Bennett, Stacey candidly shares her own odd journey toward unleashing the artist within. For a glimpse at Stacey's--and maybe your own--creative process, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Stacey Hurlin.
