 “Paint Plein Air”

Lakeland Art Association hosted their first ever Plein Air Painting Event in Warsaw on October 4, 2019.The event was held in conjunction with Warsaw’s First Friday, “Art-tober” event. Artists were asked to set up and paint Plein Air in Warsaw or the surrounding area. Awards were presented during the First Friday festivities. Mike Yazel won both First and Second place. Terry Pulley won Third place, and Honorable Mentions were awarded to Sherri Johnson and Tammie Davis. Painters traveled from as far away as Indianapolis to participate! Lakeland is so happy that our first event of this kind was so successful. We hope to make it a yearly event. Thanks so much to LAA President, Melodie Koher, for her time and effort to make this event happen!

Lakeland’s Annual Spring Show Reception and presentation of awards was held Sunday, May 19. The judge was Ann Shive of Crestwoods Gallery.

Third place was awarded to Joel Fremion for his fabric portrait titled “Portrait of a Musician.” Second place winner was Ted Simmerling for his piece titled “Awakening.” First place went to Elizabeth Wamsley for her ceramics piece titled “Burning.” Best of Show went to Cinda Culver for her charcoal drawing, “Pearl”. The judge said this piece holds emotional appeal, has expressive use of line and the direct gaze of the model captivates the viewer. Cinda Culver also won the People’s Choice award for her drawing, “Pearl”. Thanks so much to Elizabeth Wamsley for organizing the show, Maple Leaf Farms for sponsoring Best in Show, and Blue Pearl Antiques for sponsoring People’s Choice. The show will remain in the gallery until June 3. Artist pick up date is June 3, 12:00-6:00

Permanent Collection Display

Attention all Lakeland members! We would like to display pieces from our permanent collection in our gallery classroom. This will allow more space in our gift shop for our members to display their artwork. In order to do this, we will need to purchase Walker hanging system rails and hooks for our classroom. If you would like to donate funds for this purpose, please drop off your donation at the gallery, and specify what the funds are for. Thank you so much for your help and support.
