By Lindsay Advocate

The work of the Kawartha Arts Network, an artists’ cooperative based in Kawartha Lakes, will be displayed throughout March at City Hall. All are invited to visit City Hall at 26 Francis Street in Lindsay to enjoy more than 30 beautiful pieces from the group.

The Kawartha Arts Network strives to promote awareness of the importance of arts and culture in the Kawartha Lakes community and beyond. The group meets monthly to exchange ideas and look ahead to the future of art in the Kawartha Lakes area.

“The Kawartha Arts Network encompasses the beauty of our municipality,” says Mayor Andy Letham. “Their organization does so much for the art and culture of Kawartha Lakes, so it’s an honour to showcase their work at City Hall.”

The exhibition at City Hall includes 35 oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings as well as photography and mixed media artworks.

“We love pursuing our vision as artists in Kawartha Lakes,” says RoseMarie Condon, an artist from the Kawartha Arts Network. “We find its natural beauty and relaxed way of life inspiring to us.”

Kawartha Arts Network is involved with many exhibitions and shows throughout Kawartha Lakes each year. They also offer artists’ workshops in various disciplines and a weekly life drawing group in Lindsay. To learn more about their ongoing events and workshops, visit their website.

The show at City Hall will continue until March 29. In order to showcase the work of many Kawartha Lakes artists, the artwork at City Hall changes approximately every month. If you would like your work to be featured, please contact Christine Briggs, Executive Assistant to Mayor and Council at 705-324-9411 extension 1310.
