Local restaurant fined by OLCC; Annual call for Gallery Without Walls is open

Local restaurant fined by OLCC

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission announced Aug. 15 that Lake Oswego's Bambuza Vietnam Kitchen would be penalized for two violations: failing to verify the age of a minor before allowing her to buy or be served alcohol when she "reasonably appeared to be under 26 years of age," and permitting employees, agents or representatives to mix, sell and serve alcoholic beverages, or supervise those who do, without a valid permit from the commission.

The OLCC said that if Bambuza's age verification equipment met all standards by Aug. 1, the restaurant would either pay a $1,815 civil penalty or serve an 11-day suspension. If the restaurant did not meet that deadline, it would pay a $2,970 civil penalty or serve an 18-day suspension.

Annual call for Gallery Without Walls is open

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego (ACLO) is excited to announce the call for outdoor public art to be considered for Lake Oswego's nationally recognized, award-winning Gallery Without Walls exhibit. Now in its 20th year, this program's mission is to integrate art into the vcdaily lives of residents and visitors to the community.

Submissions will be accepted now through Nov. 15, and artists from around the world and work which resonates with people of diverse backgrounds are invited to apply. Up to fifteen artists will be chosen by the Selection Committee comprised of ACLO board members, community members, art professionals and citizens who seek the best pieces based upon overall quality and merit.

ACLO seeks works from a variety of media, including projections and murals, and encourages proposals that engage, educate and inspire the community.

Chosen works of art will be included in the rotating collection for two years. Those who enter into the program are also eligible for an annual People's Choice purchase of up to $20,000.

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego administers the public art program, partnering with the City of Lake Oswego along with the community to select, site and maintain the nationally recognized Gallery Without Walls public art program. It also oversees the City's permanent art collection of over 250 works and provides accessible programming for the community.
