March Artists of the Month

The Lakes Region Art Association announces the artists selected for this month’s popular Artists
of the Month Program. As the Association draws from the entire Lakes Region, this program is 
aimed at exposing the Association and its members’ work across the entire area. 

Each month, a jury selects from submissions by member artists to be featured at various 
businesses in the Lakes Region. These original pieces might be oil or acrylic paintings, 
watercolors, pastels, photos or collages. 

The following member artists will each have art work on display until March 16 at these Lakes 
Region business locations:

Congratulations to all participants of the Laconia Library Show. It was a huge success with 33 members participating and 50 paintings exhibited. AND three paintings sold! We received very positive feedback from viewers of the exhibit and have been invited back next April, this time for a two week show.

As part of our 75th anniversary effort, a Video Committee has been formed (Shela Cunningham, Don Frost, Roger Gagne, Gisela Langsten, Gerri Harvey, Vynnie Hale, and Jean Kennedy.) We are working with a videographer to make a video describing the history of our organization, where we are now and our future direction. As part of this effort we will be taking photos/videos during our meetings. These images may be used in this video. Those who do not want their photo taken will be asked to sit at the back of the meeting area. We are also looking for any historical photos or documents about the organization, especially during the period from 1989- 2001.

In addition, a themed art contest entitled “Places and Spaces of the Lakes Region” is planned. I’m hoping to get a lot of participation from our members. Incentive: the winner’s painting will grace the video sleeve cover. More details will follow.

Happy painting and see you at the meeting April 20th.
