The Lakewood Center Associates will hold its monthly meeting March 15 at Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S. State St. in Lake Oswego.

Guest speaker will be local artist and art educator Robin Damore sharing experiences gained from following her passion for art.

Damore's forte is painting portraits, and she most enjoys creating portraits of children. She began her work in the late 1990s by studying with Leonid Gervits, a Russian master portrait artist. She has produced a collection of Santa portraits over the years, some of which have been used by retailer Neiman Marcus on its Christmas cards. She was recently commissioned to complete a portrait of Jack Daniels which will hang in Portland's Multnomah Whiskey Library.

All are invited to attend the luncheon program, which begins with sign-in at 10 a.m., followed by a business meeting at 10:30 a.m., followed by the program at 11 a.m. and lunch at noon.

The charge for lunch is $10, payable by cash or check. Vegetarian and gluten free lunch options are available, as is the option to attend the meeting without dining. Those wishing to attend should reserve a seat by calling Jo Ann Parsons at 503-620-9092 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

The group oversees fundraising events, and manages the Re-Runs shop, a consignment and gift shop selling furniture, jewelry, antiques and house wares. Re-Runs returns a generous 60 percent of the purchase price to the consignor. Donations of items are also gladly accepted and a tax receipt is provided.
