What is the GAC?

Since 2001, the Geauga Arts Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment of our community through the promotion of education, access and participation in the arts.


  • We believe people of all ages should have access to arts and cultural activities

  • Arts and Culture connects people

  • Arts education and lifelong learning is important

  • Participation in the arts enriches lives and strengthens the culture of our community

  • Economic opportunity and support are essential to maintaining a vibrant arts community

  • Our goals are to support and develop the arts and culture in Geauga County.

  • To promote and collaborate in arts educational programming and events

  • To help develop the arts and culture economy in Geauga County

  • To promote the rich artistic resources of Geauga County to local, regional, state and national audiences and make the county an arts and culture destination

  • To promote opportunities for awareness and participation in the arts and culture in our Geauga county communities


We do all of this thanks to Annual Membership Fees, Donations, as well as a portion of every sale made through our Art Exhibits in Local Venues, and at our Annual Juried Art Show.
