Please join us for each “First Friday” and help us celebrate the wonderful Local Artists that we Feature here, at The Lake House. The First Friday of every month this Summer and Fall we host one or more of our featured artists here in the store, so you can meet them and see their exceptional work along with the opportunity to purchase original works of art at special “First Friday” pricing. Wine, Hors d’oeuvres, Friendship & Fine Art! What a great way to start your weekend !
Linda Rogers – Painter, Oil
As a fourth generation Californian, Linda’s paintings naturally reflect her connection with the enduring calm of the Western Landscape. With a critical eye for detail, her paintings have a realistic quality that draws you in..to experience the moment captured on canvas. Linda resides in both Orange County and Lake Arrowhead, which allows for a diverse pallet of color, mood, scenery and subject from which she finds her inspiration. Her education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA, as well as a Master of Arts degree and a Master of Fine Arts degree, with Honors, from Cal.State University, Long Beach. Linda’s Paintings have been exhibited at The Laguna Art Museum, Cal. State Long Beach, Irvine Valley College, Brea Cultural Center, Riverside Museum and the San Bernardino Museum. In 2008, Linda was commissioned by the UCLA Conference Center (through The Lake House) to paint several custom paintings for the Center. Four Original Linda Rogers’ paintings currently grace Conference Center’s Lobby. Linda has over a dozen amazing new paintings to debut at this First Friday event!
Julie Evans – Painter, Watercolor
Julie Evans has always enjoyed drawing and painting, beginning when she was 11. Developing into an accomplished plein aire painter, Julie continues to hone her skills by attending various art functions and classes such as lessons from Internationally recognized Master Painter David Farrington. Julie’s recognition is that of a painter of Realism. Her art hangs in many private and Public collections, including the permanent collection of the San Bernardino City Hall, and San Clemente State Beach Historic Cottage/Visitor Center. Julie has also illustrated 21 book covers with her beautiful watercolor paintings. ( a 21 –book series – “The Missions: California’s Heritage”, 2nd Ed. By Mary Null Boule.)
Julie’s art has not been shown in the Mountain area before, so we are thrilled to have her join us for our First Friday event & to share her talent with us!
