We will have a Party, Reception and Art Event on October 29, 2017 from 2-5PM. Several Lalo Artists’ works will be on display on that day and through December, 2016. The reception and show will be held at The Warehouse Art Gallery (WAG) as well as online.
The show is open to the public and to all Lalo Society member artists whose work is juried in. Artworks expected will include many interpretations and portrayals, from the traditional to the abstract. New pieces including paintings, pastels, sculpture and photographs will be shown.

Lalo’s “Call to Artists” Fall Show “Autumns Patchwork Quilt” has been postponed until Fall, 2017, due to technical circumstances beyond our control. We regret that it was necessary, however, we will have a Spring Call to Artists Show “Blossoms of Spring” prior to the Fall event in 2017. We will post the details of this as soon as they are available.
The interest, support and passion that each artist who entered the Fall 2016 “Call” shows that the mission of our organization to “Let Art Live On” is a vital one and that artists and others continue to be an integral part of maintaining the synergy that we share with one another.”
