One of the very first Creative Alliance extravaganzas, our members’ annual salon-style exhibition proudly displays over 200 works of art by professional and novice artists alike.
An annual favorite of participants and viewers alike, The Big Show & Little Big Show is our members’ opportunity to show off their visual art creations. Any and every member is encouraged to submit one work of art that will be hung in a massive, salon-style show. Artwork can be of any media, and members of all ages are encouraged to participate, with a special $5 fee for youth ages 17 and younger. With so many novice and professional artists exhibiting in one place, The Big Show & Little Big Show is a fantastic opportunity to find and purchase completely unique and affordable works of art for your growing collection.
Special to our year-long 21st Birthday celebration, for the first time ever The Big Show will feature a members’ Performance Night on June 25th following the gallery reception, where any member who can sing, act, juggle, dance, play an instrument, conduct magic, or any other stage-worthy activity can also show off their skills! Check out the event page HERE for more info about registering!
Don’t miss this opportunity to show your community your hidden talents and support Baltimore’s premiere multi-disciplinary arts organization in the process through your continued membership!
