Welcome...

 

to the Northern Lakes Center for the Arts. Established in 1989 as a comprehensive cultural center organized and designed to provide local residents with the opportunity to develop and share their creative talents and abilities with one another and with the general public.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Center is a home for several local arts organizations:

The Northern Lakes Chamber Orchestra

rehearses and performs music written by history’s great classical composers in the Northern Lakes Concert Series, monthly concerts for the general public.

The Northern Lakes Theater Guild

a community theater organization which produces and performs plays as part of the Northern Lakes Drama Series, has brought theater to life for local residents.

The Northern Lakes Writers' Guild

gathers local writers to discuss work in progress and publish their writing in Northern Lakes’ Soundings.

The Northern Lakes Art Gallery

exhibits work by local visual artists, from painters to photographers and from potters to sculptors, including a wonderful annual display of color and design by the Apple River Quilt Guild.

The Northern Lakes School of the Arts

an educational organization formed as an outgrowth of the Center’s mission, develops the creative talents and abilities of local residents. Our nationally certified school, unique in rural Wisconsin, offers local students the very highest quality instruction in music, drama, the visual arts, dance, writing, and other artistic disciplines taught by an experienced faculty. The School provides the instructional basis for what happens at the Center in terms of concerts, performances and exhibits; the Center provides the perfect place where those developed abilities may be creatively exercised.
