Artists and residents enjoy ‘Art at the Lake’

0

The Senior Center turned into a huge canvas of colors and textures last weekend as artists from the Canyon Lake Art Association filled its walls with a variety of artwork for the viewing pleasure of the community. The “Art at the Lake” show was open to the public Saturday and Sunday, and included appetizers, live music and the chance to visit with artists.

There also was a silent auction and opportunity drawings, as well as the chance to win a portrait painted on the spot by Therese Daniels. Along with displaying their artwork, CLAA members enthusiastically contributed prizes for the auction and drawings. Contributing artists included Lori Gundrum, Joan Fakhoury, Marilyn Latimer, Joan Dietz and Ines Miller.

Show Chair Carol Davis provided the decorations, and Jarryd Ramborger provided the music on piano, guitar and harmonica.

Prizes included gift baskets, artificial floral arrangements, jewelry and artwork.

Winners of the opportunity drawing were Ines Miller and the Raj Lycan family. Silent auction winners were Ila Goldstein, Lori Gundrum, Joan Fakhoury, Marilyn Latimer, and Jane Lafferty.
