The Cable Hayward Area Arts Council (CHARAC)
CHARAC has been organized to operate exclusively for charitable purposes, to encourage the production, performance and appreciation of the fine arts through networking among artists and the community, education of artists and the public, arts and cultural programming, and advocacy for the arts.
Throughout the year we host a number of events, our main fundraising event being in May with a different theme each year. For 2014, our main event is “Light up the Night” on Saturday, May 17, beginning at 6 pm at Flat Creek Eatery. Other events include:
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. You can find detailed information about all of these under “Resources” above.
In addition to events and exhibits, we provide grants and scholarships to college-bound seniors in our area high schools as well as youth and adult continuing education grants. Check “Resources” above for more information.
A major event for 2013 was the opening of our artist cooperative gallery, Art Market 63, just south of Cable on Hwy 63. More information about the artists under “Art Market 63″ above.
A special committee was formed five 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.
