Nearly 100 people so far - artists, photographers, artisans, crafters, performers, illustrators, writers, dancers, musicians - have joined CCA to support our efforts to help creatives connect with each other and support the arts in Concord. With this particular show, we want to shine a light on those in our group who also live right here in our fine city. If you weren't sure, we're here to tell you - the arts are alive in Concord!

It's almost time to switch over to your 2015 calendar, so be sure to make note of our Artist Reception at aRt Cottage on Saturday, March 7 from 2-5pm. Food, wine, music, amazing art for sale - don't miss it!

Announcing our first group exhibit!

We have some great news – the Concord Community of Artists (CCA) has booked aRt Cottage gallery for the month of March for our first group exhibit in 2015! This is an amazing opportunity for all Concord artists and artisans to show our city what we do, increase our collective exposure and raise awareness for the value of art.

We’re calling this first exhibit Concord Arts Alive—Emerge! We believe that the arts are absolutely alive in Concord, even when the presence of art in our city sometimes feels elusive.

Concord Arts Alive! will be the over-arching theme for all CCA events and programs. The word Emerge sets the tone for our first concrete effort to bring Concord artists and artisans together to highlight our collective passion for our work, as well as our civic pride. We will be managing a comprehensive publicity effort to bring lots of traffic to the gallery and hopefully we’ll all sell some art, too!
