Hello Lake City art community,
Thank you to everyone who attended our Grand Opening on September 14th and the Dennis Warner Concert on September 21st. Both were huge successes because of our wonderfully supportive artists, volunteers, and community. The Grand Opening hosted over 450 visitors and raised hundreds of dollars. The Dennis Warner Concert, the first concert in our new Art & Culture Center, was a magical evening filled with music and storytelling.
With fall officially here, LCAA is providing a great assortment of classes and celebrations to keep our community creative and connected. We have several art classes focusing on painting, stained glass, jewelry making and wheat weaving. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, dance and yoga classes are available.
We also have two big seasonal celebrations that you can look forward to.
• Maximize the childhood joy and those Halloween costumes by attending the first LCAA Halloween Spooktacular on Saturday, October 26th.
• Then we’ll wrap up the season with our spectacular Holiday Home Tour on Saturday, December 7th.
We look forward to seeing you at these signature celebrations and at our many creative classes. For a complete listing of upcoming events, please click here.
Finally, I’d like to leave you with some fall inspiration. I recently attended the Maison et Objet show in Paris to understand incoming trends and concepts we can expect in art, design, and lifestyle for 2020. Below is a brief recap. Enjoy and keep creating!
Kind regards, Dominique
Paris . Maison et Objet . 2020
The key themes in art, design, and lifestyle at the September edition of Maison et Objet Paris were a continuing emphasis on sustainability and longevity, as well as updates with comforting colors and textures. Nostalgia continues through reinvention of heritage art and design.
• Less, but better: create art and designs that are sustainable rather than disposable. Reduce material waste through innovative designs and celebrate imperfections by embracing raw materials, edges or slouched, and molten forms.
• Comfort is key: add warmth to minimalism through rich, comforting hues, subtle angles and smooth finishes. Soften plump forms to create a relaxed, inviting tactility.
• Draw from the past: reference Brutalist or Cubist styles for a fresh take on sculpture, metalwork and ceramics. Experiment with Art Deco-inspired shapes and unexpected material mixes. Simplify traditional styles for pared-back Neoclassical aesthetics.
