The next LAG meeting is Dec. 3 at 7:00 p.m. at Capitol City Christian Church. We will be having a "Movie Night" for Lincoln Artist Guild members! The main feature will be a DVD featuring the life and art of Georgia O'Keefe, one of the twentieth century's greatest woman painters. She was a forerunner in the world of art, when women artists were not considered the best artists. Throughout her lifetime she painted hundreds of paintings ranging from large flower images to desert bones and landscapes. One of her quotes, "to fill a space in a beautiful way" best sums up a lifetime of artistry as she continued to paint well after she reached seventy-five. Living to the age of ninety eight, she was the recipient of the United States Medal of Freedom, one of the highest honors for a civilian and has over 900 paintings on display in major art museum. So start the holidays right with a relaxing night with LAG members as we enjoy lots of white (popcorn, not snow) and learn about Georgia O'Keefe!
Special Benefit at OUT of the BOX
The holiday season is a time for giving, so what better time for LAG to partner with Out of the Box, a local store where guild member's sell their wares, to support an important program in our community --the Backpack Program. On Thursday, December 5th, from 3:00-8:00pm, there will be a reception with food and coffee, where there will also be artists demonstrating their work during the reception. There will be art in all forms and sizes for sale with a percentage of proceeds to benefit the Backpack Program. And along with this, there swill be a Silent Auction with five to eight 2D and/or 3D original artworks created by our guild members. Come see what the guild has to offer and get some holiday shopping done while supporting a worthy charity, the Backpack Program.
