Our Story

gaa-front-picThe formation of the art association is a story of the talent and enthusiasm of a few people who wanted to see the work of area artists celebrated and promoted for all to enjoy, by teaching classes, organizing exhibits and holding events that promote understanding and appreciation of the arts.

In 1983 local artists and art supporters Suzanne Wilson, Ananda and Ben Bricker, Midge Obata, Becky Thatcher, Frank and Barbara Siepker, and others pooled their ideas and energies to create the organization. Some of them continue to be actively involved to this day and many other talented and dedicated individuals have joined to carry on and enlarge the original vision for the Glen Arbor Arts Center.

If you are an area resident, either full time or during the summer, and share an interest in our mission, come and join us.
