Hats & Masks Fundraiser


We're trying something new this year for a fundraiser. It's an exhibit, but it's a little different than the way we usually do exhibits. The juried entries of wearable hats or masks will show on the community wall and throughout the gallery during the month of October. Entrants will be able to pick up any unsold pieces just in time to wear them for their Halloween parties. Click below for more information and entry form.

Registration Deadline: EXTENDED! Enter by September 25. Artists must pre-register. Be sure to include entry fees!

Show Dates: September 28, – October 25, 2019
Open to all Colorado artists. Masks and hats of all kinds: Traditional/Cultural/World; Sci-fi/Cosplay, Masquerade, etc.

Classes Galore and More at the Lakewood Arts Gallery

Posted by Gail Firmin on January 16, 2018

For 30 years the Lakewood Arts Gallery has been a place to not only view artwork from local Colorado artists, but a place to immerse yourself in a creative community that offers fun events such as soup tastings and Valentine teas, musical, literary and performance arts and a chance to further your education with an interesting array of class offerings. Take a look at the Winter 2018 schedule of classes: Oil painting with Lakewood Arts founder, Barb Tobiska, Saturday evening Sip & Pour acrylic workshops, painting underwater scenes on YUPO, learning about copyright law for artists and even a Yog(a)rt workshop where a vinyasa flow and meditation session is followed by the creation of your own personal mandala. Mosaics, “Drink-n-Ink”, encaustic wax collage and even a mixed media floral workshop to usher in spring will allow students to fulfill that New Year’s resolution to try something new. All these classes and workshops can be found at lakewoodarts.org/classes—workshops2.html . There’s always something new and creative going on at Lakewood Arts! Call the gallery at 303 980-0625 or go to lakewoodarts.org to learn more.Lakewood Arts is located next to Casa Bonita at 6731 W. Colfax Ave Lakewood, 80214.
