LOVING-IMPRESSIONISTS-400X400

June 1 to June 30

Impressionists were a group of artists in the late 19th century who developed a distinctive style characterized by capturing the fleeting effects of light and color in their paintings. The term "impressionism" originated from Claude Monet's painting titled "Impression, Sunrise," which was exhibited in 1874. Impressionist artists sought to convey the essence of a scene rather than focusing on detailed realism. They often used loose brushstrokes, vibrant colors, and innovative techniques to create a sense of spontaneity and capture the changing atmosphere of a moment. Notable Impressionist painters include Monet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Camille Pissarro.

The LRAA June Gallery Event gives all members an opportunity to bring their "Impressionist" art to the public in an exhibit that will run the entire month of June. There are no size restrictions but all art should be either original or archival prints and all must be framed unless submitted as canvas, metal or acrylic photographic prints.

Entry fee is $10 per piece.
This exhibit is open to all LRAA Members.
Art Drop Off: May 25th
Exhibit Dates: June 1st through June 30th
Reception: Tentatively planned for June 16 from 2 PM to 4 PM
Art Pick Up: June 30th
Chairperson: To be announced

CASTLE-IN-THE-CLOUDS-FAIR-sharpened

Castle in the Clouds

The 2023 Castle in the Clouds Arts & Crafts Fair was a success, especially considering it was their first attempt. The 2024 event is sure to be bigger and better. The Lakes Region Art Association is co-sponsoring this event with Castle in the Clouds and as such, all members get a reduced entry fee, yet to be determined. Each LRAA member brings their own tent and sets up their own displays in an area designated for the Lake Region Art Association member.

Watch future newsletters for more details.
