Call for Entry - A Year at Waneka Lake: an exhibit of all seasons

Find your creative inspiration at Waneka Lake. During 2022, the Lafayette Arts & Cultural Resources Department is hosting an open call for entry of artwork of all types and mediums. 

The theme of the exhibit is to reflect a year at Waneka Lake, but need not focus on wildlife, landscape, or nature. For example, artworks may feature recreational, social, or cultural aspects of the ways we engage with Waneka Lake and the immediate surrounding area. 

The exhibit will hang at The Collective Community Art Center and the Lafayette Public Library from January 12 – March 5, 2023.
