Cable Hayward Area Arts Council

A non-profit, artistic community in the Wisconsin northwoods

Welcome to the Cable Hayward Area Arts Council

The Cable Hayward Area Arts Council (CHARAC) is non-profit organization formed in 1996 to bring together the art, artists and supporters of art.  The organization works to provide art activities and events and education to the region.  We print an annual newsletter in the spring outlining our year of activities as well as a monthly email newsletter and you can sign up to receive in the lower section on this page.  We encourage you to become a member and to continue to learn what your arts organization is doing and where you can join in.  Perhaps you are interested in a class or teaching a class!

New in April 2018 is the CHARAC Art Center!!  Located in the space formerly occupied by Art Market 63, we will now have a space dedicated to promoting the arts!!  We are planning a number of classes and events, so stay tuned!  From June 27-September 7 we will be hosting Craig Blacklock, the well-known photographer based out of Moose Lake, MN.  See the event page for more details!
