    We hope you are all safe and taking plenty of precautions during this outbreak of COVID-19. In keeping with the Louisiana stay-at-home order, we are going to postpone all our April art events ("With Your Whole HeART", Children's Workshop Series - Easter Art for Kids, and the April Second Saturday - Acrylic Pour) to dates to be determined later. In the meantime, please be safe, be creative, and share your work.

    Come see our ongoing exhibition , "Color Crescendo", on the second floor of the Historic City Hall, Arts & Cultural Center at 1001 Ryan Street, Lake Charles, 70601.

    The theme for the Gallery by the Lake’s first exhibition at the Historic City Hall is “Color Crescendo”.   The exhibition takes its inspiration from the Latin word, crēscere, which means “to come into existence, increase in size or numbers", or “to grow or cultivate something”.  Come see how the Gallery’s artists interpret this definition in the context of color in their paintings, photographs, and sculptures.

    "Rare Light" exhibition: the Gallery by the Lake featured artist for the first quarter of 2020 is photographer Dan Plummer, whose exhibition, "Rare Light" is on display as part of "Color Crescendo":

    When the earth turns its back to the sun, we humans switch to night mode. Where there is manmade light, we congregate with purpose and comfort in mind.  Where there is natural light from the moon and stars, we are more likely to stop, stare, contemplate, or even fear.  This set of late-day and night landscapes invites the viewers to put themselves into these near-dark scenes as observers and contemplators.

    After 18 years in our location on West Pryce Street, the Gallery by the Lake has relocated!  We have been lucky enough to find a new home in the Central School Arts & Humanities Center at 809 Kirby Street, on the 3rd floor.  There we have a studio/workroom and a dedicated room to house our teaching studio, the Creative Arts Center.

    In addition, we have been allocated a beautiful gallery space on the second floor of the Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center at 1001 Ryan Street, Lake Charles, 70601.

    Our new phone number is 337 387-1218.
