Arts on the Lake is a non-profit corporation that fosters performances, exhibits and art classes in Kent, NY.
We have an ongoing series of classes for adults and children, as well as musical performances of classical, jazz, pop and rock. Arts on the Lake sponsors a theatre program that has developed indigenous works (“Kent Stories”), stand up theatre (“Open Mouth”) and new works in an ongoing partnership with the Blue Horse Repertory. The Visual Artists Committee (VAC) presents a major spring and fall exhibit as well as other Art Events.
Currently, Arts on the Lake is working with the Town of Kent to develop plans so that the former firehouse can be developed into the Art Center for the area. This was spurred on by a grant secured by State Senator Leibell to initiate the work. Arts on the Lake is developing a capital campaign to secure funds to complete the work.
Our current goal, as it was at the beginning, is to develop a place where creative activity can be developed, performed, displayed and presented in a way that serves the creator well and strengthens the community in the process. Our Strategic Plan centers on how best to achieve this goal and build an organization that becomes a valued center for the community.
