8x8 Art auction and gala
Submission Deadline: September 27
The 8x8 Art Auction and Gala is an inspiring evening of art, music, wine, and food that brings the community together in the Gallery setting of The Crossing Arts Alliance, which has a big city feel right in our downtown.
Dozens of area artists contribute artwork on 8” x 8” canvases, which are offered in a silent auction at the event. All proceeds from the evening go to benefit The Crossing Arts Alliance as we work to provide more arts programming to our community.
Want to contribute art to our 8x8 Art Auction? We provide the canvas, so stop by to pick one up, add your creative talents, and return it to us by the deadline. More information on the event HERE.
Each November and December our Gift Shop and Gallery are filled to the brim with one-of-a-kind art and fine craft suitable for gift-giving. We call this Kringle Market. The opening day is Saturday, November 10th, which kicks off with treats, music, and as part of a circuit of other arts and crafts fairs in the area. The months of November and December are our busiest in terms of sales and artists are encouraged to keep their stock levels monitored. We find that items under $50 are our biggest sellers. If your work fits the bill, contact us about how to be included.
Call for Visiting Artists
As part of our ongoing Second Saturday programming, TCAA invites visiting artists to participate in a 1-day trunk show, demonstration, or workshop. We've hosted journal-makers, painters, photographers, sculptors, culinary artists, and more, and have enjoyed their mini-exhibits, art sales, and classes. We delight in introducing our members to new artists and art forms, and our visiting artists enjoy the opportunity as well. If you are an artist or fine crafter who would like to get to know the Crossing Arts community, contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Call for Writers and Poets
The Crossing Arts Alliance is looking for writers and poets who would like to have their work shared in our newsletter, The Crossing Currents. We are looking to include a variety of literary styles, including short works of poetry and prose as well as selections from larger works such as novels (250-500 words). The Crossing Currents is published quarterly and is distributed to over 650 readers, and we would like to take advantage of this opportunity to feature our literary community and share their work with our broader readership. There is no submission deadline as this opportunity is ongoing.
If you are a writer and interested in having your work featured in The Currents, please contact us at email@example.com
