LPC Online Art Auction is now open to view; Bidding starts July 1

The LaPointe Center for the Arts provides grants to local artists, allowing artists and groups to develop and grow as well as bring art to the Madeline Island and the Chequamegon Bay area. We’ve been around over 30 years and have touched so many who have been inspired by the beauty of the Apostle Islands.

Last year, we canceled our Annual Wine Tasting because of COVID and had to find new avenues to support all of our local artists. This year, you can support, engage and fund island art and artists by participating in our LPC Online Art Auction. Click the link below to preview the pieces. Then, on July 1, let the bidding begin.

Bidding will end July 15 and winners will be contacted to make arrangements for delivery or pickup.

Thank you for your 2020 membership support of La Pointe Center (LPC) for the Arts. We are hoping you will choose to become a member of our organization in 2021 and attend our membership meeting. Our by-laws state that every year we must have a membership meeting to inform our members of our finances and other business plans.

We also need you as members to vote on the new Board Directors that have been selected. We need a quorum of 15 members… It has been challenging some years to get 15 folks together some Sundays afternoons. We are hoping that this special invitation and meeting notice rallies the crew! Your meeting participation is much needed and greatly appreciated.

Artfully yours, The LPC Board of Directors:

Peg Bertel (chair), Micaela Montagne (treasurer), Cynthia Mueller (secretary), Rae Lesmeister (co-chair), Ken Myhre, Beth Speckien, Peggy Ross and Samantha Dobson
