LO talent featured in Lakewood Center Gallery

A new show opens at the Lakewood Center Entryway Gallery, and a medley of seasoned local arts will be featured through Oct. 5.

The featured artists are members of LOCAL 14. That’s not an obscure union but rather a group of women who show their work annually at the World Forestry Center. The featured artists include Mary Dennis, Bonnie Garlington, Lin Haak, Vicki Hammond and Sue Jensen.

LOCAL 14 originated in Lake Oswego when artist Janet Almy needed to raise money to repair a piano. She gathered a few friends and hosted an art sale in her Lake Oswego home. The show sold out, and the success of those 14 artists’ convergence led to an annual event called the Lake Oswego Crafts and Art League, or LOCAL 14.

While the presentation has become more sophisticated over the years, one thing has remained unchanged. LOCAL 14 is a still launching point for the careers of professional artists.

This year’s show includes demonstrations throughout the weekend. Try your hand at something new and talk to the artists in person. The gala opening is tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. Exhibition hours are this week only: Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Lakewood Center is located at 368 S State Street. More information about the artists and the LOCAL 14 show is available online at local14.org.
