Artistic masterpieces shine at the Palace


By Rania Shakkour, Special to La Prensa


LORAIN: Artistic talent proved to come in all shapes, sizes and ages this December at the Lorain City Schools Holiday Art Show at the Lorain Palace Civic Center, featuring creative and original art work from Lorain, Ohio students.


The art show was on display throughout the month of December, 2006.


The art work was created by Lorain students—grades kindergarten through 12th—and were contributed from about 20 of the Lorain school artists. The schools’ art teachers selected the art pieces to be put on display and submitted the works to the annual art show.


There were about 100 art pieces on display.


Art work was created from an assortment of mediums including: watercolor, acrylic paint, pencil, charcoal, and scratchboard. There were a variety of themes such as landscapes, portraits, self-portraits, Christmas and holiday themes, animal, Egyptian, stain glass windows, and masquerade masks.

The Lorain Arts Council and the Lorain School Educational Endowment Fund, enhancing education and fine arts programs in Lorain, sponsored the event. Winners were announced from each age group category after the annual Lorain Community Christmas Candlelight Processional Dec. 17 and winners received a 50 dollar award for their masterpieces

Joanne Chemorov, Lorain City Schools Director of Fine Arts, said the art show is a holiday structured event coordinated in conjunction with the candlelight processional each year.


Theater-goes had the opportunity to enjoy the art work on display before or after movie showings. The art show was open to view during theater hours and was free of charge.


The Lorain Palace Civic Center, located at 617 Broadway Avenue, has been a mainstay in the community since 1928.
