GALLERY "BEST OF"
We are proud of all we've accomplished in 2019, building on the 47 years of work that came before. We're delighted to be among some twenty fine art and fine craft shops in Lunenburg, and happy that we have members in common.
So, the South Shore Breaker runs the annual Readers' Choice Awards, and some nice people voted for us.
We accept this award <blush> on behalf of our growing team of dedicated volunteers, our creative member and guest artists - and all those essential buyers.
Lunenburg, this one's for you!
Below are pop-up art shows by member-led groups
who have rented our sweet Gallery during the after-season.
Good dates still available. Another benefit of LAS membership.
NOW'S YOUR CHANCE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Hello, new and long-time members. Did you enjoy your 2019 experience at the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society? We sure hope so, and we hope you will again next year. How to be sure of that? We say, volunteer to help out with something, that's how. Here are some tasks and committees that are starting to work now on 2020: step right up!

THESE VOLUNTEER GALLERY ATTENDANTS SAVED US $5,000!
This is an extraordinary list.
These LAS Members volunteered, singly and in pairs, to keep the gallery open on 30 weekends in 2019. Some served once, some many times. We omitted two names last issue (sorry, Frans and Paulette) and because we are so appreciative of everyone's efforts, we decided to run the whole list again.

I hope to improve my time management skills for next year so that i can also sit the gallery. Best wishes, Patty" We hope you and others will be able to do that, Patty, and that those on the list will repeat in 2020.
