The Lakeland Art Center & Gallery will open March 1 with exhibiting artist Samara Dulik and Kim Marcadis.

Dulik is a self-taught artist working primarily in acrylics, spray paints, inks, Posca pens and, at times, finger painting. Her own lyrical figuration creates a powerful impact with use of bold color and whimsical elements, according to a news release from Lakeland Art Association. This is her own personal brand of painting that highlights color through the introduction of graffitism.  

Marcadis is a potter from North Webster. In 2004 she left for Matthews, N.C., and in 2005 she enrolled in classes at Clayworks Studio and Gallery in Charlotte, N.C. In 2016, Marcadis returned to North Webster and opened her own studio and gallery where she creates functional pottery with lots of color and texture. Her inspiration comes from nature. She often adds frogs, turtles, birds, and dragonflies to her clay pieces. Marcadis enjoys exploring working with clay and surface designs using many different processes, techniques and materials.

Both artists work will be on exhibit from March 1 to the 26th. Their exhibit can be enjoyed Wednesday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Lakeland Art Center & Gallery, 302 E. Winona Ave., Warsaw.

It is the mission of the Lakeland Art Association to further the visual arts in Kosciusko and surrounding counties by challenging the creative spirit of local artists and community residents through visual arts education, the sharing of creative endeavors, and public exhibits and events.
