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 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
