LCS Two-Day Art Fair
Fri Mar 8 & Sat Mar 9 2024
The two-day LCS Art Fair is the last and largest art show of this high season. This annual event will be held in the gardens of the Lake Chapala Society (16 de septiembre #16A in Ajijic) on Friday and Saturday, March 8 & 9 from 10am to 3pm. Our Art Shows for the next high season will resume in October 2024. There will be over 70 artists and artisans. Admission is free, and you'll find ample parking on the lake front. Any profit from the participation fee paid by the artists will benefit our community outreach programs.
Our LCS art shows feature local art and handicrafts, and are not restricted to members of any specific art groups. We provide a much-needed sales venue for Mexican artisans and artists who do not normally have access to such opportunities. In addition, these shows provide a sales platform for the LCS Children’s Art Program to sell original art plus their famous art cards featuring the kid's artwork. This is an important revenue source for the youngsters and their families.
Come on out and support children's art, local art, and handicrafts while enjoying a delightful day in our gardens and grounds. You can also take a break in our café for a snack, cold drink, or a meal, and we have an on-site ATM for your convenience. Don't miss this art fair!

Raffle to Benefit the LCS Children's Art Program
Monday February 12 until Friday April 5 2024
Raffle tickets are on sale at LCS near the main entrance (in the ATM area). They are being sold Monday to Saturday (except holidays) from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon. They will be on sale from Monday February 12 until Friday April 5. Tickets cost $100 pesos each, or 10 for $900 pesos. The winner need not be present!
A beautifully framed and matted original watercolour by Ricardo Sánchez Corona has been donated by the artist as a raffle prize to benefit the LCS Children's Art Program. This work is titled, “La Vuelta del Jefe (sobre ejidos de Anenecuilco).” It is framed in a modern black art frame with a white mat, and the size of the painting (including frame) is 67x85cm (26" x 33"). This masterpiece is valued at $30,000 pesos!
It depicts the revolutionary hero Emiliano Zapata who was born a peasant in Anenecuilco in the state of Morelos. Amongst many ideals, he promoted social justice and ownership of communal lands by indigenous people. The 1910 Revolution made his hopes and dreams a reality. He liberated the land belonging to the farmers of Anencuilco, and returned it to them.
You can see a reproduction of this painting near where the raffle tickets are being sold at LCS.
