The Cable Hayward Area Arts Council (CHARAC) is a non-profit organization founded to organize artists and events that promote the arts for the betterment of all the people living and visiting our area.
Throughout the year we host a fun fundraising event on the 3rd Monday in May with a different theme each year….Gallery on Main Street, artful banners on the main street of Cable, the Namakagon Art and Music Fest at the Sawmill Saloon festival grounds in Seeley, an Art Crawl that includes artists and galleries from Stone Lake to Barnes. More details can be found along with maps and brochures under “Events” above.
Each year we host exhibits at the Weiss Library and the Northwoods Clinic in Hayward. In addition we collaborate with the Cable Natural History Museum on a juried art show each August. In 2013 the theme is “Deer Camp”. You can find detail information about all of these under “Resources” above.
In addition to events and exhibits we provide grants and scholarships to college articulating seniors in our area high schools and youth and adult continuing education grants. Check information by going to “Resources” above.
A major event for 2013 is the opening of our cooperative Art Market 63 just south of Cable on Hwy 63. More information about the artists and the art collaborations under “Art Mart” above.
A special committee was formed 5 years ago under the auspices of CHARAC to open and manage a performing arts center, The Park Theater. Concerts, plays, and movies are featured…..click on the link above.
