LACA Community Arts 2007
'tis the season

Mark your calendar for another Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance (LACA) Community Arts Showcase, December 4–December 18, 2007. This popular LACA event features the work of thirty local artists, on display and offered for sale at the gallery. In addition LACA has two special events planned celebrating art, literature, music & holiday cheer!


Holiday Open House Celebration
& Artists' Reception:
Friday, December 7, 5–9 PM

Bring your neighbors, family and friends along to celebrate the season and support the local art community. There'll be plenty of refreshments on hand and a wonderful selection of gifts created by local artists, including paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, jewelry, handbags and more. Join the fun as LACA honors participating artists with an artists' reception, featuring a viewing gallery and artist meet-and-greets. In addition, you'll be treated to a performance of a capella carols sung by local favorites Peg Chafee & Cheryl Sager. Enter our door prize raffle and win one of two year-long LACA memberships or one of three LACA tees. The reception is open to the public and admission is free (donations accepted). Please come and support your art community. Bring along a plate of your favorite treats to share! And remember, the showcase is ongoing through December 18 (open Tue-Wed-Thu, from 2-6 each day), so be sure to come by and check out our gift selection!

In the spirit of the season, Ampers& is a collection point for the Newmarket Rec.'s Annual Giving Tree, and will be accepting donations in the form of unwrapped toys for local, underprivileged boys & girls (age 0-16). Your donations will be accepted through December 10th. Please join us in supporting this worthy cause.


Spoken Word:
Thursday, December 13, 7–9 PM

First launched in the summer of 2005, LACA's "evening of spoken word" events have really been a hit—so much so, in fact, that they have now become a monthly event. LACA has moved their location to Crackskull's Book Store on Main Street in Newmarket, where participants and audience meet on the second Thursday of each month to enjoy a wonderful evening of poetry crafted by local wordsmiths. The Spoken Word event is open to the public and admission is free (donations accepted). Interested in sharing your work? Contact Arlon for more info, or to get signed up in advance.
