The Clear Lake Arts Center's mission is "To ignite the creative spirit through the visual, performing and literary arts."
Relying on the support of our membership, our non-profit organization provides educational programming, entertainment, and events for youth and adults. Our beautiful facility holds several galleries and a gift shop where everyone is welcome to browse, be inspired, and purchase fine arts and crafts created by local artists.
Stop by and visit us in December. While you are here, ask for a tour of our Stanton Gallery now on display Blue Marbles” by Sioux Center Textile Artist Joanne Alberda. “This exhibition is a collection of one of my favorite themes, the circle. It makes reference to a number of different subjects, but most often to the planets of our solar system. Photographs of the earth from space sometimes appear as beautiful blue marbles. In my work I wrestle with ideas such as time, space, and motion.”
Also in our Hanson Window Shop Gallery, the 2014 Salute to Agriculture.
