December, 2014


As we celebrate the holidays and reminisce on our many activities in 2014, both the Gallery and the Soper-Reese Theatre keep us in the public eye and provide creative venues for the citizens of Lake County and our visitors.  None of this would be possible without the support of our many volunteers and advisors.


Our 33rd annual meeting came off with a new twist as LCAC presented “An Evening with Mark Twain” at the Soper Reese Theatre.  Thank you, Bonnie Ewing, for bringing impressionist McAvoy Layne to Lake County. We’re hoping for a repeat performance in 2015.


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 and Third Friday Live have become regular events in the community.  Keep watching for special events—the venue is booked well into 2015 thanks to the efforts of Carol Hays, the Theatre’s new marketing director, who brings with her a wealth of experience and expertise in theater management.


Our 2015 First Friday Fling rack card is ready for distribution, thanks to Toni Hyden for securing the wineries and musicians.  2015’s card features the musicians as well as the wineries. Thanks are in order to Karen Magnusen for doing the graphic design for the card.  Barbara Lee, a new LCAC board member and Chair of the Gallery Committee, has also been designing business cards and other graphic work for the Gallery.  Thank you, Barbara for taking on so many roles. 


Auditions for Music Fest 2015 will be held at the Soper Reese Theatre on December 17th.  The talented Barbara Clark will be director for the event.  With the assistance of John Tomlinson and the wealth of talent in Lake County, you can be assured of a very entertaining evening on January 24, 2015.


In closing 2014, I can only be thankful for all the time, talent and generosity of the many who contribute to our arts community.  Your endeavors enrich us all.  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and thank you,


With gratitude,
