Lehi Arts Council rounds up artists in many mediums



On Monday, June 24, the Lehi Arts Council (LAC) judged their Chalk Art contest in the parking lot of Lehi Elementary. They also had the annual Lehi Round-Up Art Show next door at the Lehi Arts Center (685 N Center St). The chalk art will remain in the parking lot as long as it doesn’t rain, and the Art Show gallery will be open each evening of Round-Up week from 6-8 p.m. and on Saturday, June 29, from 2-4 p.m.

“I wish we could give everyone an award. They all worked hard and spent time on their art,” said Lori Cerrani, a member of the Lehi Arts Council. Cerrani organized both the chalk art contest and the gallery show.

The art show attracted double the entries over 2018 and Cerrani added a children’s category, age 5-7, to the youth and adult categories. The music room of the Lehi Arts Center is lined top to bottom with photographs, paintings, drawings, and 3D art. The winners in each category received cash awards and ribbons at a reception on Monday, June 24. A crowd of artists and their families spilled into the hall outside the music room at the Lehi Arts Center and into the doorway to hear who won during the reception. Rehearsal for Mamma Mia! was in the room next door providing background music.

Chalk artists spent the first four hours of Monday morning creating masterpieces in the parking stalls next to the Lehi Arts Center. One row is dedicated to the youth section, the next row is the adult section, and closest to the fence are the group chalk art entries.
