Art on the Lake will occur at the Chautauqua Harbor Hotel on July 13th, 2023, from 5 – 7 PM. The event is free for attendees, and all are welcome to attend. Light hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served.

“All year, the artists work to prepare for Art on the Lake,” says Terry Lair, Art Facilitator for Aspire of WNY’s iXpress program. “Their pieces are so beautiful, and they are excited to show them off.”

Framed art pieces will be available for purchase, and every attendee can participate in a raffle to win one of the framed pieces.
