It's been a while since I have shared my two cents, almost a year. It has flown by. Been busy though still not working a job. In house home health care of mom-n-law is full time occupation, for now. I did manage to join the new Lorain Arts Council. So in my free time I have been there.

The Lorain Arts Council has been in cahoots with the City of Lorain to stir up people traffic in the downtown area. Lorain does have some big yearly events but has need for smaller venues. We have secured a building and have a gallery. The gallery is called "LAC Gallery 737 and Art Center.

If you are a Lorain County artist or art enthusist, art supporter, art patron, you can get a membership. Our aim is to support the arts in Lorain. You can check out the LAC site to get the details: www.lorainartscouncil.com/   or check out our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/The-Lorain-Arts-Council/183906404959491

Members have display/sale privileges in the gallery. Events and shows are a treat because the community is envolved. One of our first events was a coloring contest for the kids. There are art class offerings and the chance to hang out, chat, etc. We have an on going mural project, a bistro, a gift shop. Did I say all the arts are invited? A Bistro?

So far we've had painters, photoographers, digital artist (like me!), poets and writers, jewellers, wood carvers and wood burners, but no potters (yet). I can't wait to see who and what this next year brings. So, there you go. Check out the web sites for hours and times, then come and see first hand and personal.
