We are saddened to share the passing of Angela Funk, artist friend and LVCA board member, from a rare and untreatable strain of cancer. Angie’s contribution to the community through her involvement in the arts was monumental.
Angie had a beautiful inner spirit that expressed her enthusiasm for life and guided her artistic talent through a variety of mediums—watercolor and acrylic painting, French encaustic painting, mandala design, pottery, and stained glass.
Our deepest sympathies extend to her family and friends. She will be missed, but the legacy she lived and has now left behind will always be remembered. We, along with her family, are working on plans to host an August exhibit of Angie’s original artwork at Gallery 770.
The art council received generous donations from the Clifford Wengert Family Giving Fund. Thank you for this continued support
Thank you to everyone who donated in memory of Angela Funk and her dedication to the Lebanon art community.

LVCA’s historic building, first established in the early 1800’s, is in need of some major roof repairs. After reviewing bids from local contractors, LVCA plans to move ahead with the roof repairs this summer. Your continued support is especially appreciated as we take on this additional expense for needed maintenance and upkeep.
