Hello Lake County Artists and Art Supporters,




Final meeting to decide on the future of Middletown's Life Gallery!



To those who want to see the Life Gallery thrive as a beloved community space in Middletown — to our local artists, teachers, musicians, entertainers and community-minded folk — following last Friday's successful brainstorm meeting, a final community meeting will be held this Wednesday morning to finalize how we as a community can support and benefit from the Life Gallery.  All are welcome and encouraged to participate!



For those who have not yet visited the Life Gallery, this beautiful venue offers space for art showings, a professional dance floor, a stage for live entertainment, a backstage area, and privacy curtains for meetings.  For more information, call 707-987-4863.



Final Community Meeting for the Life Gallery!

Wednesday, August 27th

10am-12pm (please arrive on time) 

At the Life Gallery

(in the Middletown Plaza on the corner of

Wardlaw and Calistoga)






Attention to painters who like to paint outdoors.


Hello Painters,   We will meet at the Grange on Big Valley Road on Thursday August 28th, around 9:00 a.m. this week.   There are vineyards, Mt. Konocti,

some redwood trees, and hills in the distance we can put on our canvases.   We did well last time at Highland Springs and

environs, and I had fun talking to the caretaker and observing  and learning about how to catch crawdads!   Hope to see more

of you at the Grange area, would be nice to know who may be there,   PattyO.   263-8909








Here’s a message from Karen Davis a South Lake County artist.




Greetings fellow art lovers:  The location of August 28th, South Lake Artist Guild meeting will have to be at Senior Center in Middletown, one more time instead of the community room.  When I sent out the notice I was under the impression that we would be able to divide the room and share the same meeting time with the boy scouts.  My apologies for any undue inconvenience this may cause.



Karen, also, sent artist Dayle Marshall’s feedback about being the featured artist at Twin Pines Casino and being the first South Lake Artist Guild featured artist to show their art at one of their evening wine tasting events.



Dayle Marshall was selected to show her work at last Friday’s Twin Pines Casino wine event.  Below is what she had to say about her experience last Friday.  



Thank you, Karen, I didn't sell anything. We all felt and heard that this, being the first event of this sort inside the casino, was unexpected by the people coming in and many ignored the whole thing. But, I think that it was a ground breaker for the next artist and we all believe that it is a good thing for the casino and for the artists. People will acclimate and, perhaps, begin to look forward to the whole event.



All in all we felt that our setup was great especially considering how "unlit" that part of the casino is. The casino managers were helpful. It was lots of work but worth the exposure and the appraisal of my work by so many different people.


I so appreciate that I was chosen to break ground with this. It was a wonderful evening.

There is still time up, until October 13th, to see one of the best art exhibits in Lake County, the Eco Art Sculpture Walk at Middletown Trailside Park.


If you haven’t been able to find the time to go see it, September mornings are a good time to go when the weather starts to be even cooler in the mornings. The park is open seven days a week from dawn till dusk. There are some benches and picnic tables along the trail and you can bring your favorite dog friend on a leash to accompany you.  Just be sure to bring a doggie doo doo bag with you so that others don’t have to experience stepping on it. There’s a public restroom rest room in the parking lot so you don’t have any excuses this year not to go. This is the year to have a great experience seeing unusual art at the park and get a little healthy walking exercise at the same time. No excuses now!
