The Lakewood Ranch Art League revealed a new collection of paintings and drawings by local artists on Nov. 8 at the ComCenter, 9040 Town Center Drive.

The ComCenter provides flexible office space and a variety of services designed to meet specific business needs, and its office building provides a lovely setting to display beautiful works of art.

Most of the Lakewood Ranch Art League’s original artwork on display at the ComCenter is available for purchase by the public at very reasonable prices.

During the reception, attendees enjoyed delicious hors d'oeuvres, treats and drinks while previewing the impressive art on display.

In addition to the artists and their guests, the opening was attended by many of ComCenter clients to give them an early look at the selection of art. The artwork at the ComCenter represents various styles, including watercolor, acrylic, oil paintings and charcoal drawings.

The showing is an excellent opportunity for those wanting to acquire original art by outstanding local artists.

The Lakewood Ranch Art League periodically displays its work in local venues and galleries, and several of the artists also donate their work for philanthropic purposes.

For example, the Art League partners with the Lakewood Ranch Women's Club to help support their local nonprofit charities, HOPE, SMART and SOLVE, by donating original art for LWRWC charity fundraisers.

The Lakewood Ranch Art Club collection will be on display at the ComCenter until May 2019. The Art League is also hosting a Holiday Exhibition & Art Sale on Dec. 1 from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. at Lakewood Ranch Town Hall.

If you are interested in acquiring original art, stop by the ComCenter and plan to attend the Holiday Exhibition & Art Sale. Come see what Lakewood Ranch Art League has to offer and give yourself, your family and friends the gift of art.
