LACA Community Arts 2007
'tis the season

Mark your calendar for another Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance (LACA) Community Arts Showcase, December 8–December 17, 2008. This popular LACA event features the work of over two dozen 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 12, 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—specially priced and sized for holiday gift-giving. 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 live holiday music performed by local favorite Leif Gerjuoy. 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 if you can! And remember, the showcase is ongoing through December 17 (open Mon-Fri, from 2-6 each day), so be sure to come by and check out our gift selection!

LACA and Ampers& Studio will also be collecting donations, through December 17th, in the form of non-perishable foods or household items on behalf of the Newmarket Food Pantry. Please join us in supporting this worthy cause.


Spoken Word:
Thursday, December 11, 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).
