It finally is starting to feel like summer in the Lakes Area and artists are excited to share what they have been working on over the long winter. Although we are disappointed the Wine, Ale, & Art Crawl downtown Alex had to be cancelled this year, we hope it will come back better than ever…
Support local art in the Lakes Area and you support the local economy and someone’s dream!
