New Hope Art League meeting slated for Lachman Gallery


Artist Al Lachman hosts the October meeting of the New Hope Art League at his gallery, Lachman Gallery, in Peddler’s Village from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29.

Lachman will introduce his newly published book, “Secrets of a crazy Artist,” and share his insight and experiences as he celebrates 65 years as a fine artist. The event is free and open to the public. The gallery is shop #44 in the Village, at routes 202 and 263 in Lahaska.

Lachman’s exhibition for his 65th annual show, “Landscapes of the Mind and Soul,” will be on display from Nov. 9 to Dec. 29, at his gallery.

The show will seek to reflect the full range of his paintings from realism to abstraction. Known as a colorist for his luminous and painterly style, Lachman’s influences can be drawn from Van Gogh, Rothko, Degas and Emil Nolde.

As a painter, teacher, author and juror for over six decades, Lachman has received numerous awards throughout his career. Visit him online to see more of his work.

Founded in 1974, the New Hope Art League is a welcoming group of artists and art lovers who seek to inspire, encourage and empower artists. For information, email or visit
