MILWAUKEE (June 20, 2016) Lake Park Friends and the North Point Lighthouse Friends are collaborating to kick off the Occasional Artist Series with an event featuring artwork by Julia Taylor:

Friday, June 24

5-8 p.m.

North Point Lighthouse

(2650 N. Wahl Ave., Milwaukee)

The Occasional Artist Series will display work by local artists and is meant to be an ongoing fundraiser for both the Lake Park Friends and the North Point Lighthouse Friends. A book of watercolors, writings and poems by park lovers will also be for sale.

Greater Milwaukee Committee President Julia Taylor will be the first local artist to be featured in the series, debuting her selection of watercolor paintings.

Taylor learned to draw early on and discovered a passion for art, ultimately earning an art minor. However, only in recent years did she rediscover her affinity for watercolor. Taylor is excited to display her work, never before featured publicly. A preview of her artwork is available on her website at juliataylorwatercolor.com.

Attendees are encouraged to enjoy food and beverages provided by Central Standard Distillery and Bartolotta’s Lake Park Bistro. Central Standard Distillery is contributing a new cocktail for the evening, and Bartolotta’s Lake Park Bistro will be providing the hors d’oeuvres.

There will be a $10 entry charge to attend. Proceeds from the event will support Lake Park Friends and the North Point Lighthouse Friends.

This event is the first in the Occasional Artist Series. Please check back at the Lake Park Friends website at lakeparkfriends.org for information on future events.
