Take part in LCAG’s Artwalk Themed exhibition

Artists have until Aug. 22 to drop off art at the Lake Country Art Gallery to be in the gallery's Artwalk-inspired exhibition.

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. 12 and 13 this year.

This year’s themed exhibition will kick things off early, with the juried exhibition opening today, Aug. 26 and continuing to Sept 25 at the Lake Country Art Gallery.

Artwalk itself is set for Sept. 12 and 13 in Lake Country.

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 always intrigued by how folks approach a themed exhibition,” said gallery curator Katie Brennan. “I like to leave a lot of room for creativity of all sorts.

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,” explained 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”.

There is still time for any artists wishing to participate in this year’s Artwalk Themed exhibition at the Lake Country Art Gallery. Artists have until Aug. 22 at 3 p.m. to drop their work off at the gallery. For more details on how to submit your work for this exhibition, visit lakecountryartgallery.ca.
