Lunenburg Arts Fest 2021
WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!
On behalf of the Lunenburg Arts Fest (formerly Paint Sea on Site), we would like to thank you for joining us in our new location on the Fisheries Museum Wharf. It was an exciting weekend and we appreciate your patience and understanding while we fine-tuned and worked out the details of the event.
We were pleased to have many sales and so happy that the weather held out for us (well almost!) We believe that the event was well-received by the public and that the wharf was an excellent location.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, and participants and we look forward to seeing you next year!
September 2021 All Members Show
Our Annual Foot Show is coming to an end!
It was a very successful show and a fun month at the LAG. Thank you to all members who participated and volunteered gallery sitting time.
For those of you intending to participate in September:
REGISTER YOUR ART!
(https://www.lunenburgartgallery.com/register-for-shows)BEFORE Sunday, August 29. This adds you and your artwork to the master sales list and creates the label for the wall. Please make sure your information is correct - every time we have to make changes to the inventory it uses volunteer hours (and paper).
INTAKE/OUTTAKE DAYS: Sunday, August 29 and Monday, August 30,1pm till 4pm both days. This is a shorter window so if you can't make it either day please let us know to make other arrangements. This month's showcase may include ONE piece per artist, no size restriction. Please don't forget your mask.
Also new this month - if you have business cards or postcards, you may bring in 10-20 for us to have on hand. We will keep them behind the counter for visitors who ask.
Even if you are not bringing a piece in for the September show, please pick up your previous artwork on these days.
LAGS Small STUFF
August’s Small Stuff artist Charles Weiss says: "I have always been interested in creating and expressing fish in some kind of painting or carving. The fish as a subject are a source of many images in my mind”. His unique skills and talent are evident in the work he does, in attention to detail and blending of colours and textures. We hope you enjoyed seeing this marvelous collection of fish sculptures on during the Members Annual Foot Show!
Did you know that the origins of the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society go back to 1972? That’s right, and that means that in 2022 we will celebrate our 50th Anniversary. The foundation of LAGS began when Hazen and Gloria Meldrum left their Earl Bailly paintings with the Lunenburg Heritage Society with the hopes that “someday a permanent facility would be established for the paintings.” The first meeting of the newly formed Arts Committee of the Lunenburg Heritage Society was held on 1972 March 28. We look forward to celebrating 50 years of the Arts Committee / LAGS in 2022. We would like to have a committee, reporting to the Board, to plan for the Anniversary year and we are looking for volunteers. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interesting in assisting this landmark for our Society!
There are still many spots open for the September and October Members Shows which will conclude our gallery season. You can sit alone, with another attendant or split the day into 2.5 hour shifts (add a comment with your preference when you sign up).
Your volunteer contribution is appreciated by everyone!
