  • Our first Fine Art Show of the 2014 - 2015 season is at Lake Farmpark, 8800 Chardon Rd. (Rt. 6), Kirtland.  The show runs from September 17 through November 2, 2014.  We have over 70 entries!  We would like to thank Beth Florian and her staff at Lake Farmpark for helping us make this a successful event.  Fall is a great time to visit Lake Farmpark.  They have a lot of interesting weekend activities and special events that attract a lot of people.  We hope you get a chance to visit the park and see our show.  Congratulations to Eddie Mitchell for winning Best of Show for 'Super Cindy', at right.

    A special thank you goes out to Steve and Kathy Mercer for hanging the show.

We also thank Mary Urbas, gallery coordinator and curator of The Gallery at Lakeland Community College, for judging our show.  Mary announced the winners at our "Cookies & Punch" reception on Thursday evening, September 18, 2014.  Do you want to see who won?  Then click here.
