Thank you for your participation in the busy, beautiful and varied showings at the Gallery.  Competitions varied from pirates and shipwrecks, paintings of Lake County Agriculture and displays for the Big Read’s county wide literacy program in which the LCAC took part by sponsoring a competition in literature and visual arts based on Amy Tan’s book, “The Joy Luck Club”.  It was with great pleasure that LCAC was able to partner in this program with, the Lake County Office of Education, made possible through a grant from the National Endowments for the Arts, and Arts Midwest. Congratulations to Pat Courtney who beautifully depicted the complicated life of modern vs. old world Chinese culture and to Janet Taylor for her literary thoughts on the same subject. 
Upcoming events will be our First Friday Flings which feature Lake County Wines, talented Lake County musicians and the work of first class and talented artists in various mediums.  Please join us in the following months’ First Friday’s receptions for the artists.  Thank you to Toni Hyden for coordinating the wineries and the musicians. As a volunteer organization, these events would not take place without our Gallery coordinator for the hangings, Judy Cardinale. Thank you to Marilyn Summerfield for coordinating the hosts who sit the Gallery and, not to be overlooked, are you who sit the Gallery.  Thank you for keeping the doors open and inviting.
The Soper-Reese Committee is an amazing group of individuals who, not only keep the doors open, but think of new ways to bring in community based entertainment.  Their ongoing programs of Second Tuesday Classic Cinema, Third Friday Live and Lake County Live have become regular events in the community.  Keep watching for special events—the venue is booked well into 2014. I started to say thank you to those involved and realized there are too many to name.  I’ll let Mike Adams, ED of the Theatre share that with you.
As we look forward to new adventures, plans are in place for auditions for Winter Music Fest 2014 which will be coming up on Saturday, January 18th at the Soper-Reese Theatre.  Get your musical talents and rhythms flowing and sign up to make this a spectacular fundraiser for LCAC.
During early December, we will be holding a one day grant writing workshop made possible through a grant from the CA Arts Council and will be conducted by Alysumm Weir, Executive Director from Mendocino County’s Arts Council.   Please let me know if you are interested in attending this workshop.
During this Autumn season, as I luxuriate in all the colors and bounty of beautiful Lake County, I reflect and appreciative how each of you brings a special color, vibrancy and talent that contributes to the success of this close knit organization.  Thank You
With gratitude,
