It’s time for The BIG Show 2021!

Our 26th annual members’ extravaganza back! 

Don’t miss the opportunity to have your artwork on the walls of our main gallery (yes, on our actual walls), or your fabulous talents showcased on our stage. Who knows… you might be the next BIG thing!

Did you know that The BIG Show was the very first Creative Alliance program? That first event led to twenty-five years of artistic expression, community, cultivation of young minds, and so much joy. 

This event is all about our incredibly talented members, those that have just joined Creative Alliance and those that have been with us since the beginning and are at the heart of our organization. Nothing can stop our members from creating and sharing their art with the world. This exhibition and show is designed to celebrate your artistic voice, creativity, and imagination!
