Art In the Library - Artist of the Month

Lopez Library is a public library created by the people of Lopez to provide resources and services for the enrichment of their cultural and recreational lives, and to provide information needed for daily living and decision-making. The library strives to promote the love of reading and of lifelong learning.

The library provides a premier place for artists to show their work. A volunteer Art Coordinator's primary role is seeking and selecting artists for each show. Artists wishing to display at the library can contact our current art coordinator, Malia Sanford at 468-2265.

Lopez Artist Guild 2019 Scholarship Recipient: Uma Anderson Chopra
A $1,000.00 Shirley Wright Scholarship for a Graduating High School Senior has been awarded by Lopez Artist Guild to Uma Anderson Chopra. She has created art all her life. She has focused on botanical drawing, figure studies, watercolor, batik, pottery and sculpture. This year she created a community art piece to "raise awareness of the impact our body image has on our lives." The project consists of three life size clay sculptures of women, multiple interviews, surveys and a paper on the psychological effects of body image. She wants women to feel more confident and strong in their bodies.

Uma will be graduating from Lopez High School and continuing on to Point of View Tattoo School in Portland.

The LAG Scholarship and Grant Committee along with the LAG Membership is proud to be able to award Uma this scholarship.

This will be our 3rd voyage on the canals of France and we expect it will be the best. There will be watercolor workshops each day and excursions into this Champagne Region. The staterooms are modern and comfortable and the price is for double occupancy. These trips fill quickly because there is room for only 20 people. Early registration will assure you a place on this trip. Contact me for more information.

Lopez Island Photographic Society
On Lopez Island
Lopez Island Photographic Society "LIPS"

The Lopez Island Photographic Society was formed in early 2016 for photography enthusiasts in our island community. Members of "LIPS" have been meeting monthly, teaching each other and sharing techniques, ideas, and skills. Sometimes you can find them photographing together under the night sky, chasing the light at the edges of the day, in and out of sunshine and raindrops. All levels of experience are welcome and encouraged. Our purpose is to help each other to learn in a mutually supportive environment.

We meet at the Lopez Library Community Room on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Please come and join us.

For further information, please contact:
