Juried Show Postponed

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.”
