Join us for an evening of celebration and support at our annual Gala for the Arts! As a community based arts organization, we bring together members of the community to appreciate and support the arts in our local area.

This year's gala features a reception with delicious drinks and hors d'oeuvres, followed by an exciting program of live performances by local artists, speeches from community leaders and members of our organization, our Community Awards are announced, and finally a live auction.

Our goal is to raise funds to support our mission and programs, such as arts education and free event programming, as well as raise awareness of the arts in our community. Don't miss this opportunity to contribute to the arts while enjoying a night of entertainment and socializing.

New this year! Artists-at-heart are invited to transform a clear glass cylinder vase into a work of art that will be raffled at the Gala. What can you do with it?  Fill it?  Paint on it?  Decorate and bedazzle it?  Break it into pieces and make something new?  Anything you want!   Vases are available in two sizes, short and tall, and only 10 available! Vases can be picked up from the ShoreLake Arts office starting March 9.   Stop by M-Th from 10-2 or call the office at 206-417-4645 to schedule a time.
