The Lakeshore Artists were organized in November, 1973 as the Professional Artists of Ashtabula County. As the club grew the membership expanded to include amateur artists, students and others interested in the visual arts. In 1975 the name was changed to the Lakeshore Artists of Ashtabula County.

The club’s mission is to encourage the visual arts as a community endeavor through education, exhibits, and participation in civic events in the area.

Members sponsor an annual show and sale each May at the Ashtabula Arts Center. The Center also hosts a show reception to give the public an evening to meet the Lakeshore Artists and view their work. The group exhibits at various events throughout the year.

Lakeshore Artist’s meet on the second Friday of the month at the Ashtabula Arts Center, 2928 West 13th. St., Ashtabula, Ohio. People with an interest in the creative visual arts are cordially invited to attend. Those wishing additional information about the organization and its activities may call Lakeshore Artists president Will West at (440) 228-6278 or Lakeshore Artists secretary Christine Vandervort at (440) 997-8865.

Many members get together at different times during the month to work on their individual projects and share each others company. A good time is had by all.
