On the third Monday of each month, January through October, LRAA members, guests and the general public gather in the Gallery for an evening of camaraderie, learning and fun.

Engaging Art Talks at Lakes Region Art Association

Member and Guest Speakers from across New England have been sharing their expertise and passion during our monthly Art Talks. These gatherings offer a wide range of experiences, from hands-on training to detailed demonstrations across various art genres. In recent months, we have been fortunate to host talented painters, artists, quilters, fabric artists, copper arts, and photographers. Art Talk presentations typically commence around 7 pm, immediately following the conclusion of our LRAA business meeting, offering an open invitation to the public. Join us and be inspired by the diverse creativity that graces our doors.

This Month's Speaker


Ben Archibauld

Nature enthusiast, gifted artist and father of three

June 17th at 7:00 PM


I’m Ben Archibald, father of three, nature fanatic, and artist from Bristol New Hampshire. Most of my artwork consists of acrylics on canvas, but I love to explore different substrates, applications, and media. Being a frequent hiker, lover of anything outdoors, avid reader, and grateful father, there’s no shortage of inspiration in my life. I usually bounce around experimenting with new ideas, which allows my curiosity to flow while honing my skills. I often paint creatures of nature, something I’ve included in my work since I was young. A recent community project gave me the opportunity to bring hundreds of people together to create a piece of art using only their fingerprints. With the end result being a surprise to all who joined in. I enjoy these creations because they merge the feeling of broad-stroke painting (which I have always loved) with magical illusion. It’s a mystery up close, but when viewed from a distance it comes alive with detail. I’m always working on new creations. Join me on the journey!
