Graphic Art in Chapala
“Luxumbra,” an exhibition of graphic art from artist 90114, opens Friday, May 25, 7 p.m. at the Centro Cultural Antigua Presidencia in Chapala.
Lake Chapala Society members can take advantage of Film Aficionados screenings each Thursday at 2 p.m.
On May 31, “Un Coeur En Hiver” (“A Heart In Winter”), 1992, France, will be shown. This is a subtle psychodrama starring Daniel Auteuil, Emmanuelle Beart and Andre Dussollier. It manages to convey, with startling clarity, the soullessness of a man unable to sustain an intimate relationship. (102 minutes).
The Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes will hold a course on artistic disciplines for children and young people aged 6 to 21 at the Centro Cultural Gonzalez Gallo. The program will include music, dance, theater and both plastic and visual arts.
To sign up or get more information, stop into the cultural center Tuesday to Friday, 4-6 p.m. or call 765-7424. Documents needed to enter are a birth certificate, copy of Curp, recent school documents and one photograph (tamaño infantil).

LCS Summer Art Camp
Now is time to get your favorite young person to sign up for the 6th Annual Art Camp, sponsored by the Lake Chapala Society’s Children’s Art program.
The camp will run from Monday, July 30 to Friday, August 3, 10 a.m. to noon daily. Registration has already begun and runs through July 28, but there are only 130 spaces available. Children who attend the program’s classes on Saturdays during the year are given priority.
This annual project wouldn’t be possible without the generous financial support of the Ajijic Society of the Arts (ASA) and the dedication of its members, who come every day to help with the workshops.
This year, the workshops consist of activities with acrylics, watercolor, clay modeling, kite-making and mosaics, drawing, daily projects for the little ones. The kids are offered a small snack at the end of each day.
Enjoy great music at some of Lakeside’s best eateries and night spots this weekend.
