Announcing New Lakeside Art Exhibit Space
Cultural Arts is one of four Chautauqua pillars celebrated at Lakeside. Each summer we have opportunities to hear beautiful music, partake in art classes at the Rhein Center, and browse the many handmade creations for sale at Artists-N-Cahoots. Annual Art and Photography shows are held at Hoover Auditorium, and a Plein Air paint-out rounds out the summer season. This summer we are exploring a new use for a familiar space by displaying and selling photography and paintings on a rotating basis at the Fountain Inn.

If you are interested in displaying your work in the gallery, please submit samples of your art to Hannah Brainard at hannahbrainard@lakesideohio.com.
Please join us tomorrow, May 27, from 5-7 p.m., for an introduction of our new art exhibition space in the Fountain Inn. This gallery space, which connects the Slack House Historic Café and the Fountain Inn, will feature work from local artists including photographers Matthew Greene and Bryan Wamsley and painters from Marblehead's "The Group." The space will serve to further enhance Lakeside’s reputation as a regional arts destination.
