The Lakes and Valleys Art Guild is a member-driven nonprofit organization formed in 2003; dedicated to the artists of the communities within the High Desert in and near the Antelope Valley.  Our members are drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds – from professional artists, and teachers, to those who have a strong interest in, and love for art.

Our goals are to provide support and encouragement to our artists and give them a place to meet, attend classes and workshops, and to display their work.

It is the goal of LVAG to positively influence the communities.

Graphic Experience – Showcasing Local Artists

In downtown Lancaster, the Graphic Experience is under new ownership and the new leaders are both friendly and ambitious. The Lakes & Valleys Art Guild recently held the first of what is promised to be a series of shows at the location on the BLVD and the Graphic Experience is also looking to showcase a new local artist every month.

All this is good news for artists and for the Antelope Valley. The people here at AV Arts decided to look into the space as a way to help promote locally businesses that are helping to promote the arts. It’s a beautiful cycle and we are very glad to be a part of it.

You’ll be happy to know that we turned up a mystery during our internet scrounging. The Graphic Experience is currently showcasing a local artist, as promised, but we don’t know who it is. Do you?

Can you name the artist behind this image? The Graphic Experience website offers no clues beyond the information embedded in the URL when you click the image (“incenseSalesmane”).

If you know who the artist is, please let us know. And maybe if you want to help us find out, you can stop into the frame store/gallery and check out what else they have to offer beyond the satisfaction of our curiosity.

A note to potential helpful sleuths: Show up in a trench coat and a Sherlock Holmes hat and take a selfie to include with your solution to the Riddle of the Local artist and you will get One Million bonus points! Or, if you prefer, we will actually send you a dollar for your trouble. A real American one dollar reward.

Cheers.
