Until that is ready please visit the HCAC Facebook page for current information:


This old site remains a source for historical information about the Council,
such as the Photo Gallery and Past Events links, below.

Photo Gallery


Past Events





Visitors enjoy refreshments and conversation while viewing an exhibit in the library. The Arts Council presents an exhibit more or less continuously, changing roughly once a month. Most exhibits have an opening reception where visitors can meet the artist. This is the reception for photographer Charles Garratt on 10 February 2013.     Photo by John Sweet.

The Highland County Arts Council was formed to promote the arts and provide cultural enrichment for the community. Local artists display their work at receptions and shows. Children and adults perform in the theater program, and summer concerts have become a tradition. You are invited to attend any of these events and to become a member of this worthwhile organization.

Many thanks to Doug Canfield for the use of his oil painting and to Arnet Gutshall for the use of his fiddle in creating our background photograph.
