Reminders – Spring Art Show & Competition

Our Spring 2022 Art Show and Competition is Getting Closer! The Time to Register Your Entries is now!

Everyone Planning on Entering or Contributing to Our Upcoming Art Show, Remember:

(1) You need to register your entries on the LSAG database. The deadline is midnight on Wednesday, April 27, but don’t leave it till the last minute. It’s a lot easier on our database manager not to have to process a lot of last minute entries all at once. You can add more entries later if you want to.

(2) You need to pay your membership fees ($20 for the remainder of this season). Please bring your fees to the show when you check in.

(3) If you signed one of our volunteer sheets, PLEASE contact Amy Conroy to confirm and receive additional instructions. Contact her directly at

(4) If you don’t have any new artwork to enter, you can still bring your previous work to the Gallery, to be on display at the same time as the show. Be ready to display your contact information, in case anyone there wants to contact you later about purchasing your art.

(5) If you have art on display at Skero’s that you would like to enter into the show, contact Lynda Feierabend about taking it down temporarily.

Demo Artist for March – Cheng Lian – Still Life

Cheng Lian was born in 1955 in Shanghai, China. Part of a close-knit, highly-talented family, he learned art since he was a little boy from his father, a famous artist and professor. He graduated from China Academy of Fine Art (a famous art school in China known as Zhejiang Academy of Fine Art), and he was an honored student in the art school. 

As an artist Cheng has traveled to many places in China, Asia, United States, North America, Europe and South America; he uses his artist eyes observing things that he has seen like people and scenery, and he created eye catching, breathe taking portraits, landscapes and still lifes with his unique style.
