PICTURE THIS!

A Fundraiser by the Lake of the Woods Arts Community for The Big Picture Campaign

Saturday, April 21 | 7:00 pm

 

We are pleased to welcome the members of the Lake of the Woods Arts Community as they host a spring social called “Picture This!” in support of the new Art Centre.

They are planning an evening of art, refreshments, music and live auction and raffle. Artists Laurie Dufresne, Melissa Jean and John Paul Lavand will each be creating a piece that evening so you can watch them at their work. Musical entertainment will be provided by a variety of local musicians including Reilly Scott, Winds of the Woods Flute Ensemble, Les Filles D’Esprit and The Kenora Opera Theatre Company.

There will be a varied and wonderful selection of items, donated by local businesses and local artists, for raffle and an amazing felted wall hanging, inspired by one of Walter J. Phillips’ Lake of the Woods woodcuts, which will be auctioned. Phillips is of particular significance because it is a collection of Phillips’ LOW work which will form the foundation of the new Art Centre’s collection.

It will be a wonderful evening of many art forms, great conversation and fun. We hope you’ll join LOWAC in their support of Kenora’s new Art Centre.

Tickets are available at the Museum and from LOWAC members – $50 (cash or cheque only)

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
