Welcome to the website for the
Lakeville Arts Council (LAC)
The ANNUAL holiday craft and gift sale (Made In Lakeville) sponsored by the Lakeville Arts Council, held on December 2 with a variety of Lakeville-made arts and crafts on display and for sale at 2 locations was a lot of fun and successful for the local crafters and organizations who joined the festivities.
Below are a few photos of the day! Enjoy.
The next activities to be planned will be our summer concerts. A warm thought to carry you through the cold, snowy winter!
During the month of January and February, the Great Ponds Gallery in the Lakeville Public Library at 4 Precinct Street in Lakeville will feature an exhibit of oils titled "Red" by Lakeville resident Joseph Fontinha, a high school teacher with a passion for painting. His work offers a slow and forensic account of his painting experience. He sees a painting as a collection of
many moments; he preserves
only those that he won’t negotiate.
He is interested in the relationships
between personal and human
stories, between subject matter
and the plastic form.
This free exhibit is open to the
public from January 3 through
February 22. The Lakeville Public
Library is open from noon to 8 pm
on Mondays; 10 am to 8 pm on
Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10 am to 6 pm on Wednesdays; and 10 am to 2 pm on Saturdays. It is closed Sundays and Fridays. For additional information please contact the library director at 508.947.9028.
