LACONIA — A Meet the Artists reception will be held at the historic Busiel Mill located at One Mill Plaza in Laconia on Thursday, March 29 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Featured works will include over 40 original drawings and paintings created by art students from the Art Department of the Frates Creative Arts Center. The artists range in age from 5 to 85 years of age and include many levels of abilities.

A major announcement will be made related to the eight students being inducted into the National Junior Art Honor Society and the four students being inducted into the National Art Honor Society.

The National Art Education Association sponsors both of these groups and the Creative Arts Center has held Chapter status since 1984. In addition the Program of Studies at FCAC is recognized by the NAEA for meeting National Standards in the Visual Arts which all of these students need to meet for induction.

Color studies, observation drawings, landscape and seascape subjects balance out the abstract and impressionistic works that make up this intergenerational exhibition. The visitors to this reception will have the opportunity to meet and discuss the wide rage of creative styles used by these Lakes Region artists.

The Lakes communities being represented at this end of the month event come from Laconia, Gilford, Gilmanton, Meredith, Alton, Center Harbor, Moultonborough, Winnisquam, Sanbornton, Loudon, and Canterbury with many of the subjects inspired by the beauty of their respective communities.

Refreshments will be served. For more information go to www.fratescreates.com or call 528-7651.
