Speakers are announced for meetings via our member newsletter.
Monthly meetings are held on the third Mondays at 7:00 PM at Woodside in the Taylor Community, 435 Union Ave, Laconia. Members who wish to be considered for Artist of the Month may bring one painting, ready to hang, and should arrive at 6:30 PM. Next Meeting, June 15 and will be an art auction.
NOTE: There are no meetings during December, January and February.
Now that spring has sprung and good weather is here we have better opportunities to get out and about and do plein air painting or just take in the natural beauty of our surroundings.
A themed exhibit “Places and Spaces of the Lakes Region” is planned as part of our Anniversary celebration so get out and paint the local scenery! This exhibit will take place on our website with online voting. The 10 most popular paintings will be exhibited at the Wolfeboro Inn and juried by Inn staff. The winning painting will be used as the cover for our video CD.
Our board has been very busy with a lot of “art happenings” planned between now and November: a live art auction in June, our Annual Show in July, and a special 75th Anniversary Dinner in September. The auction is intended to help offset dinner costs at the Wolfeboro Inn and each member is asked to donate an art-related item (bring to June meeting) AND bring a friend. I’m hoping for a good turnout and have asked for extra space at the Taylor Home. As always, your participation is crucial to making these events a success.
We are also in the process of having a video made describing the past, present and future of LRAA. This is a very interesting project but has meant a lot of work for the video committee. I’m hoping the result of their efforts will be shown to members before year’s end.
See you at the meeting May 18th.
