Lighthouse Point 19th Annual Art Exhibition
Story by Rebecca Cerino Days Photos by Debra Todd
We couldn’t have painted a better day! The weather was spectacular once again…19 years and counting. Thanks mom! The date being early in mid-March, this great exposition seemed to bring in more foot traffic. It was a busy day for the artists with a consistent flow of admirers. We had several new artists this year and many returning favorites. Overall, the quality of art just gets better every year.
And as a special touch for the artists’ t-shirts this year, we featured my father’s artwork of The Painted Indian. There was live music on the patio, painting demonstrations and a the Yacht Club offered a lovely brunch. For the first time, the Lighthouse Point Cultural Committee was invited to display children’s art work. They held a contest with select age groups to illustrate “Why I love Lighthouse Point.”
The competition was the first of its kind. Angelina Days, Norma and Larry Cerino’s grand daughter, actually won first place in the 7-9 division, talent certainly runs in our family.
It was just an awesome day. I love seeing the community come together to mingle amongst the art and artists. A big thanks to to the LHP Yacht & Racquet Club for a wonderful venue and amazing brunch.
