Special Exhibits at The Gallery!
The Arts Council is pleased to announce the launch of a new and exciting, “double header” experience for art lovers! Throughout the year, The Gallery will host a monthly guest artist with acclaim in a particular media. The work of a talented local featured artist will be highlighted along with the guest artist’s work.

Throughout the year, The Council produces a variety of events and performances that provide a venue for talented artists and musicians. These include the Artwalk and Art on the Lake Festivals, Music at the Mansion, receptions and special exhibits at The Gallery, and programs at the Performing Arts Center.

“Big Bear Lake Arts” is the name we’ve given to an ensemble of programs, events and activities provided by or in partnership with The Arts Council of Big Bear Valley, including “The Gallery,” where local artists’ work is featured. The Council’s vision for the future includes creation of a Village Arts Campus, a cultural center where visual and performing artists from throughout the area can teach, create and share the arts for the enrichment of youth and the community.
