The TBAC Office and Gallery provides a home for the Thunder Bay Arts
Council and its programs of visual and performing arts in the community of Northeast Michigan. We hope that this website
will serve as a convenient virtual link to the Council and Gallery and their activities and events. The Thunder Bay Arts Council
has been in continuous service to the community of Alpena and Northeast Michigan for 41 years. This website and its
information and links are one among many forms of promoting the arts, culture, history and humanities of Northeast
Thunder Bay Arts Council hosts over twenty visual artists who display and sell their art work in
the TBAC Gallery at 127 W. Chisholm Street. Artists exhibit their work
on a rotating seasonal basis. TBAC also hosts a series of Artists In- Residence Exhibits and Receptions
on a regular basis. The Gallery features a YouthCore Exhibit
of local student artists from Alpena schools. We often provide student workshops in area schools and display student
art work at all of our performing arts events. Students are always provided free access to all TBAC events. Exhibits,
artists and schools rotate routinely. See our Upcoming Events
link for featured artists and receptions at the TBAC Gallery.
Every July, the Thunder Bay Arts Council hosts
Art on the Bay at Bay View Park on the shores of Lake Huron in downtown Alpena
during the annual Brown Trout Festival. Over 100 fine artists and crafters exhibit and sell their work at one of Northeast
Michigan's premier fine arts and crafts fairs. Art on the Bay is scheduled
for July 20-21, 2013. We
hope to see you there!
Thunder Bay Arts Council hosts
a series of performing arts events throughout the year, including an annual Showcase
Series, Community Chorus concerts, Alpena
Symphony, Guitar Summit, Community
Showcase, and a series of Winter Chamber Ensembles @ the Gallery.
See the Upcoming Events link for this season's schedule of events.
