One of the primary reasons for the establishment of Lakeside Artisans is to promote the art of our many talented local artists and crafts persons. We are always on the search for new and exciting work to display and sell in our store.
For this purpose, we have established a Juried application process.
Applications containing all of the criteria for either Full Membership or Consignment Membership are available at the store. The artist/artisan is required to submit an application with no more than 5 photos or a disk with no more than 5 examples of the work being submitted, along with a $10 Jury/Application fee. The Jury committee will submit an approved application to the members to ask the applicant to bring samples of his/her work and join them for an informal chat. The members will then vote to approve membership.
PAINT (and Wine) NITE
On Monday, May 18th, we hosted our first Paint Nite at Bistro 197 and it was such a success, that we have decided to host more of these fun filled Paint Nites. Every seat was taken and everyone completed their Masterpiece under the direction of our own Cindy Schmidt, the Cranky Cat Lady. We are planning another Paint Nite for June. Unfortunately, we had to turn people away at our recent Paint Nite, because we only had space enough for 30. We are leaning towards holding a BYOB in the large meeting room in the bottom floor of CANAL COMMONS, where we will have more room and can accommodate more Junior Picassos. We'll let you know the details as soon as they are solidified.
