“Artists Get Wet” Makes A Splash

On April 2nd Phoenix Books and Café played host to a celebration of Lake Champlain in words and pictures attended by about sixty people. The event was a collaboration between LCC, the bookstore and the Essex Art League. Lake paintings by over 20 artists, poetry by award-winning author Daniel Lusk, and natural history from LCC’s roving scientist Mike Winslow were served up with delicious refreshments. If you missed the opening, you can still view the lake art at Phoenix Books until the end of May.  If you have an idea for a lake program you’d like to organize in your community, please get in touch with us at lcc@ lakechamplaincommittee.org.
