Each year the Lake Country Art Gallery presents a themed exhibition in conjunction with Lake Country’s hugely popular annual Artwalk - Artwalk proper will be held Sept 12th and 13th this year.
The Lake Country Art Gallery’s themed Artwalk exhibition will kick things off early, with the juried exhibition will opening on Wednesday, August 26th and continuing to Sept 25th.
The theme this year is “Light: Illuminating Art”. Artists are invited to interpret the theme in any manner, style or medium - 2D or 3D. “I’m alway intrigued by how folks approach a themed exhibition. I like to leave a lot of room for creativity of all sorts”, says gallery curator Katie Brennan.
As with the past few Artwalk theme exhibitions at the Lake Country Art Gallery, artists do not need to be participating in Artwalk in order to be a part of this exhibition.
“This is the third year where we’re inviting any and all artists to submit work for this exhibition - you don’t have to be participating in Artwalk to submit work”, explains Brennan. “We’ve opened this up to all artists as not everyone is able to be a part of Artwalk, and we’d like as many artists as possible to be a part of this exhibition at the Lake Country Art Gallery”.
Light: Illuminating Art - an Artwalk themed exhibition will run at the Lake Country Art Gallery from August 26th - Sept 25th, 2015. Grand opening event to coincide with Artwalk on Sept 12th & 13th from 10am - 5pm each day.
