CALL FOR ARTISTS: The 5X7 Art for Everyone Exhibition and Sale is an annual CCAC fundraiser supporting arts programs. “Art for Everyone” has a dual meaning. Each donated 5”X7” piece is sold for an affordable $25, making it possible for everyone to own the art, and the donated artworks are created by people from all walks of life - professional artists, artisans, crafters, students, local notables, politicians, the general public, and that means you too! There is plenty of time for you to get into the show with your 5X7 piece. The festive party and sale is Saturday, December 5, at 6 p.m. and is sponsored by our generous patron of the arts, Fox Financial. Artwork must be received at CCAC by November 30.
WE NEED A NEW PUGMILL! A new pugmill will allow us to continue to process left-over scraps of clay into useable material for future projects. Reclaiming clay means that we are able to save hundreds of pounds a clay a year to be used for adult and children’s classes as well as during open studio and JCC classes. Every donation will help us reach our goal of $3,000! You can donate directly here.
We invite you to attend the many arts and cultural programs which received New York State Decentralization (DEC) Grant awards this year - DEC calendar of events.
CCAC's programs and services are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support comes from the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning, and Tourism, the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, community business sponsors, and private memberships and donations.
