LACA Demonstration Day
John Marek drew caricature portraits as part of the Ludington Area Center for the Arts Demonstration Day Saturday.

Marek shows the finished product, above left.
Dick Bourgault, musician and artist, demonstrated iPad painting he is now practicing. Judith Dila and son, Chas Dila, and his children look at a painting Bourgault did recently. Following the event, there was an event to remember George Dila, Judith’s husband, who died in 2016. George Dila was a writer and Daily News columnist, and he put forward the idea of a local center for the arts and worked to make it a reality. He also started a writers group, still active, and developed the Ludington Visiting Writers Series.
