Lions Beach House
The Westport Film Society is proud to screen Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights. Named the greatest romantic comedy of all time but the American Film Institute, the 1931 classic inaugurated a fundamental shift in both the film industry and the artistic focus of Chaplin’s following work. Prior to the screening, we will learn a bit about why the film is universally acclaimed as one of the greats. Join us as we grow in our understanding and appreciated of this beautiful art form!
The Lions Beach House is at Sand Lake Beach, 63 Mountain Road, Westport.
Sand Lake Beach ▪ 4 July 2015 ▪ 10am-4pm
You are invited to participate in a new invitational juried art show, Art by the Lake. The show will take place at the Lions Club beach house by Sand Lake. The show will feature artists from the Westport and the surrounding areas.
The festivities will begin Friday evening with an indoor Gallery and Meet the Artist show in the beach house by invitation only. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served while enjoying entertainment by local musicians. We will also be featuring a silent art auction with the proceeds going to art in our local schools and Art by the Lake.
Our beautiful venue, Sand Lake.
The event will continue on Saturday with each artist setting up their individual white tents and exhibiting a larger selection of their work on the beach grounds of Sand Lake. Music will also be performed throughout the day by Westport area performing artists. Visitors will have an opportunity to meet and purchase art directly from the artists on Friday evening as well as throughout the day Saturday.
This show will truly be an event that highlights and accentuates the ARTS in WESTPORT and AREA. The backdrop of Sand Lake will serve as a reminder of the splendour of nature found in our area.
