We had a wonderfully successful season in 2016. Many thanks to all of our Volunteers and Artists for the time you spend working in the Gallery. Feedback from our customers is highly complimentary of the Gallery and especially because customers are delighted to have an opportunity to meet and visit with you while you are working.

As always, we are looking forward to getting reacquainted, excited to see your brand new artwork and to meet new people all summer long … all while enjoying a busy, fun, new art season. See You Soon …

A little more information...
The Lake Effect Community Arts Center was formed in 2011 with one of our goals being to create an art gallery to serve the needs of those interested in the visual arts and the work of local artists, whether established or emerging, as well as members of our community and visitors looking for inspiration, education, or an opportunity to purchase.
