First Friday September 1st is the opening of "Out of the Attic", a sale of previously loved paintings. Rebound Rocks will be performing on the front lawn.

"Out of the Attic"

Over the past years and months The Lawrence House has been the recipient of many art donations. Some of these paintings we have sold in our monthly silent auctions and the proceeds have gone to help run The Lawrence House. This September we have decided to clear out the attic and offer these paintings for sale at very reasonable prices, cash and carry. Ninety percent of the art being offered is original and much of it is by local artists like Jia Lu, Jane Hunter, Mary Abma, Sue Galos, Ariel Lyons, Joan Kirby and W.J. Mastenbroek and Percy Barnes. This is a great opportunity to own original art at a great price. Click the link to view the collection.
