The premiere art gallery and destination of Lake County, the Middletown Art Center is entering its lucky 7th year, and officially transforming into the MAC For Lake County! As part of its renaissance, everyone (artist or not) is invited to enter a design for the new MAC branding, with a first prize of $500 dollars! The winning design will be the model for a new MAC logo, which will be installed as a sign on the MAC’s home at the junction of Highways 175 and 29 – the most traveled intersection in South Lake County.

Now on view at The Middletown Art Center (MAC), “Apart & Connected” is an exhibition showcasing artwork in a wide array of media, from paintings in oil, wax, and acrylic on canvas, to sculpted clay vessels with various functions. Works in the collection reflect common themes: feelings of change, isolation, new directions, and human connection. The gallery space is energized by bright monumental paintings harmonizing with felted forms alongside the ceramic sculptures, whose heavy-weight and purposeful-shape give feelings of grounding and stability. Be sure to catch the exhibit by June 20th when it closes.
