Enter Artwork into the Katharine C. Crampton Art Show

Art Show PaintingsFor more than half a century, Lakeside Chautauqua has hosted an annual art show welcoming work from artists of all ages and skill levels.

The Katharine C. Crampton Memorial Art Show will display artwork from Tuesday, July 14- Saturday, Aug. 1 in the Hoover Auditorium Lobby. The show is comprised of two-dimensional artwork in a variety of media.

The grand opening of the Katharine C. Crampton Memorial Art Show will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 14 in Hoover Auditorium.

Guests to the art show will be able to vote on the People’s Choice Award, the winner of which will be announced the final week of the show.

Lakeside staff members will select the recipient of the Laura J. Werden Lakeside Award, which will be given to the piece that best represents a Lakeside image or scene.

Werden, the namesake of this award, directed and organized the annual Lakeside Art Exhibit from 1956-1999.

Guests may view the art show a half-hour prior to all evening Hoover Auditorium shows, as well as Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-5 p.m.

The art show is named in honor of long-time Lakesider, Katharine C. Crampton, who was a strong supporter of the arts in Lakeside Chautauqua.
