Lake Country Art Show to be hosted through August

Artists reception, awards ceremony to be held Saturday

The Graham Art Guild and the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center will be hosting the Lake Country Art Show from the end of July through the end of August at the OPOMAC. This will be the second show after Maynard Westlake’s Masterpiece Artistic Quilts to be held at the location after COVID-19 closed the center in March.

The show welcomes members of local art clubs or guilds to display artwork in categories of oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, three-dimensional, photography, pen/pencil or experimental works. Registration for the event was July 24 and 25 at the OPOMAC.

“We’ve had people here from Granbury today (Friday). We’ve had people from Wichita Falls. We usually have some from Weatherford and Mineral Wells and Breckenridge,” guild member Cynthia Pinnell said.

All artwork in the show must be original and created within the last two years. The artwork must also not have been shown at the OPOMAC previously. There is no set theme for the show, but some follow similar themes such as landscapes, still lifes, animals, abstracts and flowers. Pinnell said some entries make the trip to Graham multiple years.

A reception and award ceremony for artists displayed at the Lake Country Art Show will be held from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, with no refreshments being served and a mandatory mask requirement for those who attend due to COVID-19.
