The Lakeshore Artists group came together in November 1973 as the Professional Artists of Ashtabula County, and has since expanded to include amateur artists, students, and others interested in visual arts.  The club’s mission is to encourage the visual arts as a community endeavor through education, exhibits, and participation in civic events in the area. Club members sponsor an annual show and sale each May, and meet Wednesdays at the Ashtabula Arts Center. The club exhibits at various events throughout the year, including the Wine and Walleye Festival and The Arts on Bridge Street Festival.
