The Lake Placid Art League would like to give a big THANK YOU to our sponsors for their generous support for our 29th Annual Art and Fine Craft Show. The show was held on January 30th at the Bert J. Harris Agricultural Center. All the artists in this year's exhibit deserve recognition for the freshness of approach and experimentation with materials and process in their creative work. The main purpose of this event is to showcase fine art on the community level. We are very pleased that we had such a wide variety of media represented. Over fifty artists, most of them from Highlands County and Central Florida, exhibited and sold works that included watercolor and oil paintings, photography, and mixed media. Artisans in metal sculpting, wood turning, jewelry design and many others were well represented. Entrants were also vying for a share of $2,600 in cash awards provided by our kind sponsors.
On Sunday, November 1, 2015 the Lake Placid Art League will have a reception in celebration of their 30th Anniversary. The event is open to the public and all are invited to come. There will be an artist's exhibition, a display of historic events, and free refreshments. The event will be held from 1-4 p.m. at the Lake Placid Art League, 127 Dal Hall Blvd., Lake Placid.
