Jay Krull from the Niagara Art Trail spoke to the Barker Lions at the club’s monthly meeting. He started with the history of the trail. Referring to the Old Home Days in Lockport, he discussed the various events from 2010 that were the seed that expanded into the trail.
Past events include having artists open their studios or have exhibits throughout the county, a rubber duck race and numerous art shows. Krull gave the history and background on many local artists. Part of the mission is to preserve their work. He showed many notecards and calendars that are available for sale with the artists’ work.
As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, Krull said the Niagara Art Trail is looking forward to holding various pop-up events and shows. He ended by inviting the members to visit the new location in Wright’s Corners. The expanded space allows for exhibits and sales.
On Saturday, Feb. 20, Lion Steve Smith will host a star show. To learn about the night sky, join the group at 7 p.m. at the Winery at Marjim Manor, 7171 Lake Road (Route 18), Appleton.
Tickets also are available for the Mother’s Day chicken barbecue.
