Pedrero Pastels in Permanent Collection Exhibition at LEMA


July 12th, 6 - 9 pm is the Opening reception for the
Lake Eustis Museum Permanent Collection Exhibition








My pastel "La Playa" is one of two pastels that are in the permanent collection.
I am not sure how many pieces are in the exhibit
but both (above and below)
"Dare to be Happy" have a red, white and blue sky for our patriotic July.


The Museum moved it's location since I last exhibited there.
 "In 1995, 66 artist and patrons of the arts established the Lake Eustis Center of the Arts. Since Lake County was home to a couple of art centers, museum founders decided to rename the center the Lake Eustis Museum of Art. Within three years the museum was offering exhibits, art events, children's programs and adult field trips to other museums. The museum has a 14-member board of directors and a full-time executive director. Since September 2009, the museum has expanded outreach to the Greater Central Florida art community. The museum began to focus more towards fine art than Southeastern art. In 2009 and 2010, LEMA saw an unprecedented development with the addition of the Permanent Collection. Also in 2009 LEMA was nominated for an award for Community Engagement from United Arts of Central Florida. Lake Eustis Museum of Art is supported in part by grants from United Arts of Central Florida, Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts."
