As many of you know, the CCAA was obliged to postpone the 60th Annual Eagle Harbor Art Fair because of the pandemic.  The 60th Annual will take place in August, 2021.

To help folks understand the role of the CCAA in the Copper Country, this quote is taken from the Daily Mining Gazette Art’s Corner column written by Miriam Pickens.

“The Copper Country Associated Artists (CCAA) has supported local and regional artists in many ways and for many years. It has evolved from a small group meeting in homes and churches, to a well-established co-op gallery in the heart of the Calumet Art District. This group has faced hurdles before, and because of their nimbleness, determination and creativity, they have always met these challenges with progress.” Cynthia Cote, of the Copper Country Community Art Center  was quoted in the column saying  “… I am reminded of the importance of the Copper Country Associated Artists and its legacy as the oldest art organization in the Copper Country…..The earliest formal meeting of the CCAA was in December 1958. As stated in their history ‘The purpose was to promote local craftsmen and improve quality of their work by evaluation and discussion with others in the same field’ “.

In an effort to continue the tradition of the CCAA and support our Art Fair vendors, the CCAA and it’s members, we are conducting a Virtual Art Fair. The Art Fair vendors and the CCAA member artists are offering their work for sale on-line. Please take a moment to check this out and if you see an art object that you like, support the CCAA by making a purchase.
