Come in and discover the wonderful array of artwork, fine crafts, and gifts created by our talented local and regional artists. It's a special place and we think our visitors are special, too!

A great group of local and regional artists participat in the Lake Effect Art Gallery every year, contributing a wide variety of artwork for sale in many media -- original, quality work which results in a unique collection of art and fine craft that strongly represents our area and the talent of the artists.

 It's just a fun place to be!

The Lake Effect Art Gallery is staffed entirely by volunteers, many of whom are the artists whose work is in the Gallery, so visitors have a chance to speak with those directly involved. Profits from the Gallery sales help fund our non-profit Lake Effect Community Arts' classes and activities, benefiting the community as well as our artists.

The Gallery Board, and spouses and friends, worked very hard, with great imagination to create a great new space out of an old neglected building for the new home for the Gallery.  We so appreciate all their dedicated hours to make this happen for all of us, artists and customers and community members alike. The results of their work are truly amazing!


The location and room has changes but the artwork is still wonderful!!

Lake Effect Community Arts was formed in 2011 with one of the goals being to create a local art gallery to serve the needs of those interested in the visual arts and the work of our local artists, whether established or emerging, as well as members of our community and visitors looking for inspiration, education, or an opportunity to purchase.
