The Pewaukee Area Arts Council (PAAC) formed a community-based fine arts organization on October 21, 2004. In just a few short months, PAAC founders developed and adopted a Mission Statement, ByLaws and Articles of Incorporation, which resulted in establishing its 501(c)3 status.
Today, as a nonprofit organization, PAAC is dedicated to encouraging and promoting quality art experiences, programs, events and cultural opportunities for the greater Lake Country area. Membership is not restricted to any geographic area ... we welcome members throughout the state and region.
The organization includes individuals, organizations, musicians, students, corporations, artists, educators, designers, composers, dancers and writers. We work together to celebrate and promote the arts in our community.
Events include Showcase of Art, Helen Farnsworth Mears Art Competition, Art & Garden Tour, Plein Air Competition, Clean Water Photo Content, scholarships, community and virtual galleries, community art endeavors and partnerships with other nonprofit organizations.
You can make a difference in our community by becoming a member of our organization by sharing your talents and love for the arts. Members enjoy networking opportunities and creating with other artists and art appreciators in our community.
In normal times, we welcome you to networking gatherings on the second Monday of the month at 6pm in the Community Room of the Pewaukee Public Library. Join us! (link to membership)
