The Arts Alliance

We are 25 years old and still moving forward.

Our move to the new and exciting location at Granite Shores, with its great exposure and outdoor patio on the corner of Main St and Parrish Ave in downtown Elk River, has made it possible to offer much more to the community at this new Art Center with its Main Street Gallery and Gift Shop.

Since 1989, starting from a desk in a shared office, the Elk River Arts Alliance now with nearly 500 members has been providing our area with access to art of all kinds. Now, with an Art Center at the new more accessible location, the Arts Alliance will be able to offer:

  • Expanded and improved Exhibits for over 240 local and regional artists in the new Main Street Gallery.
  • Additional options for the more than 140 artists who participate each year in Arts in Harmony.
  • Partnership with Reading Frenzy Books where you can find, or order, a book you want and meet popular authors at one of their Author Events (78 so far this year).
  • New Literary Arts programs and services.
  • Improved Gift Shop with original art and cards by local artists.
  • More classes where children, youth and adults can learn a new art skill or perfect an existing one.
  • Ceramics Studio and Pottery Classes.
  • A floor suitable for Dance exhibitions.
  • Room to collaborate with other Community Arts Organizations.
  • Special Events in the Commons Room at Granite Shores.
  • Summer Outdoor Events on the patio.

As we celebrate the milestone of our 25th year we look forward with excitement to the next 25 years. As we work to bring more events and people to the area, we know that everyone is essential to our success.

So please consider us in your giving plan.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
