The CCAA is a community based art organization, encouraging artistic expression and helping artists to market their products through a member operated Art Gallery and the Eagle Harbor Art Fair. CCAA is based in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in the historic village of Calumet.

The CCAA Gallery

The home of the Copper Country Associated Artists is their Art Gallery located in the Downtown Historic District of Calumet, Michigan. CCAA member artists display their work for sale. Members also staff the gallery. Visit the Gallery; you may meet your favorite artist.

Member artists also hold art workshops and art classes at the Gallery. 


A concept rendering submitted by CCAA Vice President Jerome Patryjak has been selected by the Calumet Big Annie Statue Committee.

The Calumet Big Annie Statue Project committee put out a call to artists for a design submission in January. Jerome, whose has deep roots in the Calumet area, responded with his rendering and in early April he was advised that his rendering was selected! “Along with the rendering, I included notes of my reasoning for the composition, about Annie, the miners, the children and families, and the support of the public and conflict with their adversaries,” Jerome says. The committee is now searching for a sculptor to develop Jerome’s concept into reality.

Congratulations to Jerome!

We were saddened to hear that Edith Marshall, a long-time member of CCAA passed away on  February 2nd . As stated in her obituary “She exhibited a strong interest and talent for art from an early age. Starting with oil painting and then later transitioning into experimental mixed media, art was a lifelong passion for Edith. She was an award-winning, published artist and has artwork in several commercial settings such as Central Michigan University and D&N Bank.”
