LPA Dean Webb Memorial Photographic Award Winner


The opening reception of the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) 27th Annual Juried All Media Art Show was held February 2, 2012 at the lounge inside Bex Restaurant.

For many years, the LPA has sponsored an LPA $100 Photography Award for the juried art show. Last year, after the passing of one of the founding members of the LPA, the LPA board chose to rename the award, the Dean Webb Memorial Photographic Award.
LPA member Lyle Trusty, and close friend to Dean, shared a few special memories of Dean and his photography, and then opened the envelope and announced the winner (selected by MOAH/judges).

Congratulations to Charles Hood for winning the Dean Webb Memorial Photography Award! His photograph “Geothermal Plant, Iceland” is currently on display at City Hall.

All show pieces are displayed at various businesses along Lancaster Blvd. Look for entries accepted by LPA members Helen Henry, Dale Ware, Carol Moss, Douglas Wade, and others.

Exhibition dates: Friday, February 3 - Sunday, March 25 at various businesses along Lancaster Blvd.

LPA Members Volunteer for Valentine's Day Party


All groups that meet at the AV Senior Center are required to have a representative attend the monthly Citizen’s Advisory Board (CAB) meeting.  As President of LPA, I have been attending these monthly meetings.  It is inspiring to be around so many active/involved seniors volunteering their time to help so many.

At that meeting, I was asked by the Friends of the Center (FOTC), if the LPA could provide a photographer for their Valentine’s Day Party.  Sue Liberto and I volunteered and were then quickly asked to photograph a Black History celebration at the end of the month.  I’m hoping to find another couple of LPA volunteers to photograph this event.

On Valentine’s Day, the AV Senior Center was transformed!  It was a pink/red party scene, with balloons, cupcakes, punch, raffle prizes, a DJ and lots of dancing.

Field Trip Coordination Meeting


Events

On Sunday October 9, 2011, members Sue and Paul Craft, David Wilkins, and Douglas Wade met over a great home made Lasagna dinner prepared by Teri Wade. The meeting was very informal as we sat outside on the patio, and chatted about what we expect out of field trips. Some expressed that it was important to venture out into difficult areas in hopes of capturing a great image and others expressed concern over attendance and setting up easy/local/affordable field trips.

Photo Shoot with the Sheriff's Department - On Going


Community Service Project for the LPA

At the request of the Sheriff's Department this project has been placed on hold until after the first of the year.

This project is underway and members have ridden with a Sergeant on routine patrol and had opportunities to take photos of deputies doing their jobs.  Ride alongs have been during the day and afternoon shifts during the last week of September.  The Lancaster Sheriff’s station contacted the LPA with a request for help in putting pictures on the hallways of the station. The Station’s interior consists of many large, blank, Swiss-coffee painted walls.  They would love to fill those walls with images of the Antelope Valley and the deputies at work.  The final photo size would be 20 x 30 and the department will do any printing and mounting.  Each photographer will be given photo credit.

Dean Webb Memorial Display at PDWP


Christine and David Wilkins have had to overcome many obstacles to bring the memorial to completion, but it’s finally done….

It’s been an interesting nine months since Dec 26th, 2010, when Dean Webb passed into the sunset. We’ve had several occasions to commemorate his life and good works, and each of us has had an opportunity to speak to our relationship with Dean, remembering his great wit and friendship. It’s been a solemn time on occasion, but mostly there’s been a warm feeling of belonging to something greater than ourselves that has brought us all closer together.  He will be remembered long into our lives, and perhaps we’ll be a better person for having known him.

September 4, 2011
By David Wilkins

The Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association sponsored a memorial event and potluck supper to honor Dean Webb.  The event was held at the Red Rock Canyon State Park on Sunday evening, September 4.  Attendance was fantastic!  Representatives from the various groups and organizations that Dean supported spoke about their memories of Dean.  Lyle Trusty spoke on behalf of the LPA.

Besides the TV provided for the Prime Desert Woodland Preserve by the LPA other organizations provided memorials to Dean.  There will be an interpretive plaque on the turn out from Highway 14 to the Red Cliffs Area dedicated to Dean and there is a picnic table dedicated to Dean in the picnic area of Red Rock Canyon.

Poppy Festival 2011


Events

The 2011 Poppy Festival was held on April 16-17.  The LPA participated for the 7th year and had a great time doing so.

The LPA Booth

We had seven members come in on Friday to help with the set up of our booth. All went very smooth and we were done within two hours. Approximately 11 members brought in framed prints, gift cards, post cards and matted prints for sale with seven of them having sales. Friends of LMAG requested some items for a raffle they were holding with proceeds going to LMAG. Some of our members donated packets of their gift cards and we were able to donate a gift basket valued at approximately $85.

Thirteen members volunteered to help man our booth over the weekend and I would like to say thank you for their help and involvement. Some of the feedback that I received was that not only did we give out many of our brochures but that we also had inquiries on hiring our members for events and portraits.
