Canyon Lake artists’ work displayed at fundraiser


Canyon Lake Art Association members Marilyn Latimer, Rhonda Strickland and Barbara Perryman exhibited artwork in the fashion and art show charity event at the LFW Foundation’s Women’s Expo and Fashion Show on April 2 at the Outlets at Lake Elsinore.

LFW is an independent non-profit organization founded in honor of Leona Ford Washington, whose mission is to help high school students succeed. The event helped raise money for children and women.

Local models, local beauty pageant winners and students modeled donated clothing and carried artwork as artist bios were announced. For more information about LFW, visit
