“OLDIES & ART DAY” – JULY 22, 1-4pm

Join us for this fun, creative day at the LCAA to kick off our “Roadside Attractions” Exhibit. Inside and outside there will be lots to see and do! Artists will be working “plein air”, vintage vehicles will be on display, and oldies music by several musicians will be playing in the park pavilion throughout the afternoon. Special activities for both adults and children! A Silent Auction of items by local businesses will be offered. Dress in your vintage duds and you could win a prize! Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy the day!


Purchase one of our “Original Art Pins” by our talented members for $10 each and you will receive a free hotdog and 10% off any other artwork purchased that day. Support the LCAA and get a great piece of art that you can wear. 


We are looking for artists to participate on “Oldies & Art Day”. You can work plein air (outside) that afternoon and even sell your work. We are sure that some of the car enthusiasts might like a sketch or painting of their vehicle. If you would rather sketch people, trees, flowers, etc. that’s ok also. We are also looking for artists who would be interested in doing commissions. If you are interested, let us know. The LCAA will take our usual 30% commission on sales. All sales will be processed through the LCAA.

You can also donate a 3”circle artwork on paper. Any medium or subject. We will make it into a pin to sell that day. Donate as many as you like. Sign your name on the back of the circle. We need your circles by July 15.


We are inviting everyone to bring old photos with vehicles, people, and places in them. The photos should be pre-1980. We suggest making a good photo print or copy so your original doesn’t get damaged. The photos do not have to be framed. The max. size is 8x10. They will hang in the classroom and a People’s Choice Award will be given to the favorite. Photos can be delivered on the Roadside Attractions drop off dates above.


We are looking for volunteers to help with our “Oldies & Art” Day, before, during and after. Help is needed with parking, signs, food, set up of tables, selling art pins and more. Make a “goodie” for our bake sale!

Joanne Mark: “Figures: Ancient & Contemporary”

'Guan Yin @ The Met' by Joanne Mark

Joanne will be exhibiting an assortment of her recent oil paintings of figures including pieces from her Asian figure collection. She states, “In the past year I have been exploring the use of a limited palette to create subtly toned figures on soft backgrounds. I have drawn much inspiration from my travels to Asia.” She has studied art at various locations including the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. Joanne has won prizes for her work at the Chester County Art Association and at the LCAA. Meet Joanne at the reception on July 22.

Artist Statement:
I am eclectic oil painter. In the past year I have been exploring the use of a limited palette to create subtly toned figures on soft backgrounds. I have also indulged my longtime and deep rooted interest in Asian sculpture. I have drawn much inspiration from my travels to Asia which is reflected in many of my more recent paintings.
