Wednesday, June 5
Annual Event Dinner & Meeting

The Board of Directors of the Lancaster County Art Association invites all members, family and friends to join us for this annual tradition. This year’s date is on Wednesday evening, June 5 from 6 to 9 pm. If you are a new member or have not attended in the past, this is a great way to meet fellow artists, art lovers and our LCAA offiers and committee chairs!

The evening will include a wonderful buffet dinner and an update on the LCAA’s current and future plans by several of our officers and board members.

Our guest speaker for the evening is award winning artist Andy Smith who is well known for his watercolor paintings. Andy has been painting professionally since 1980 and can be seen at many exhibits and shows along the East Coast. He has won numerous awards and recognition, but places more emphasis on his personal connection with clients.

We are returning to Pheasant Run Farm Bed and Breakfast for the evening. This beautiful old 1809 stone bank barn has been lovingly restored into a bed and breakfast which opened in 2002. We will be enjoying a delicious buffet dinner that will feature your choice of roast beef, stuffed chicken breast, potato, vegetables, assorted salads, fresh fruit, dessert, ice tea and coffee. To keep costs down we will not be serving wine, but you are welcome to bring your own bottle.

When: Wednesday evening, June 5 - 6-9 pm (buffet dinner starts at 6: 30)
Where: Pheasant Run Farm Bed & Breakfast, 200 Marticville Rd. (directions from Lancaster City, take Route 222/272 south, continue on 272 south. Turn right on Penn Grant Rd.
