New LPC Artist in Residence Program

Dear friends of the La Pointe Center for the Arts,

We have an exciting new program we want to share with you, our 2023 Artist in Residence Program. Made possible by the generous support of our members, the first Residence will begin May 1, 2023 and run for three weeks.

We have put together an application page on our website here: 
https://lapointecenter.org/artist-in-residence-program/

We encourage all eligible artists to consider applying or pass this along to any artists you think would benefit from this unique opportunity. 

The deadline for applications is January 1, 2023. We are excited to be able to offer this exciting chance for artists to develop their work, inspired by this extraordinary place we all love. 

You are invited to the LPC Annual Meeting on August 28, 2022

Joni’s Beach
4 PM – 6 PM

Please join the La Pointe Center for the Arts Board for our annual meeting which will be held Joni’s Beach. This year we will be having a picnic.

Thank you to all our members who support LPC. Our by-laws state that every year we must have a membership meeting to inform our members of our finances and other business plans and to vote on the new Board of Directors. We need a quorum of 15 members to vote. Your meeting participation is much needed and greatly appreciated.

If you are not a member of LPC yet, please consider becoming a part of this great Island organization. You can support so many Island arts and artists that make this a great place.

We will have a short business meeting followed by presentations from our affiliate organizations and the winners of our 2021/2022 grant awards.

Artfully yours, The LPC Board of Directors: Peg Bertel (chair), Micaela Montagne (treasurer), Cynthia Mueller (secretary), Peggy Ross (Regranting Committee chair), Rae Lesmeister, Ava Love, Ken Myhre, and John Erste
