Over 50 artists are taking part, showing framed and unframed paintings in a variety of media and styles, as well as drawings, pastels, textile art and sculptures.  All artwork is accessible through the LAA website homepage www.artlakeshore.com

This is the 32nd year that LAA and NOVA West Island are collaborating to raise funds for this community-based charitable health care organization.  “As Covid-19 lingers on, it is now more important than ever to support NOVA West Island and the great work that they do,” says LAA President Helena Scheffer.  One third of all artwork sales during the show will be donated to NOVA West Island.
