The Lakeshore Artists meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 9 has been RESCHEDULED! The meeting will be held 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 23 at the Ashtabula Arts Center!
Award-winning artist E. Janie Altrogge has continued producing fantastic art as she battles major health issues during her extended stay at the Austinburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Austinburg. Janie is a long-time of the Lakeshore Artists group and has been a mentor to many members. We are proud to feature an interview with this esteemed artist on the Lakeshore Artists website.
“Being an artist can be so isolating. I don’t care about how you think you know, you’re going to learn something from someone because they observe from a different point of view. All artists need each other. We need to be a community.”
E. Janie Altrogge

Renowned stained glass artist Betsy DeVol Roll’s presentation during our November meeting was a hit with members. Our video of her lecture provides a glimpse of her excellent presentation.
Betsy DeVol Roll was born in southern Ohio and graduated from Cleveland State University with a B.A. in Art Education. She has completed post-graduate studies at Kent State University and Lake Erie College. Betsy taught art in the public schools for six years before founding the Stained Pane in 1987. She has been working in stained glass for more than 30 years.
Betsy has seven different types of customers: students, commissions, consignments, repairs/restorations, art gallery, gift shop and stained glass supplies. Every transaction is completed with integrity. All artwork created at the Stained Pane will move, touch and inspire. The atmosphere is one of joy. Betsy treats each customer as an extraordinary person.
