Sault Area Arts Council

Sault Area Arts Council is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the arts and to make the arts readily accessible to the people of the Sault Ste. Marie area. It operates entirely with volunteer labor and is funded entirely by private donations. The council publishes Alberta House News, a monthly newsletter that publicizes local arts events, resources, and opportunities. It also owns and operates the Sault Arts Center in Alberta House building, which contains the Olive M. Craig Gallery (now with its own gallery board), the Alberta House Shop and the Arts Council office.
