All you need is a camera, photo app, brush, or medium of your choice, combined with a love of Lake Q.”

FOLQ Board Member and Past President, Karen Faler added, “Just imagine an event where community members from all walks can showcase their artwork, meet each other, and rally around the visual magic of a living, breathing community icon, our own Lake Quannapowitt. Through our new partnership with Albion Cultural Exchange, we’re excited to make this happen.”
