Catalog Show

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 9, 4:00-7:00pm

Dates: March 6, 2024 

- April 1, 2024

The CAA celebrates it’s annual March Catalog Show this month! This year 58 CAA painters, sculptors, printmakers, mosaic artists, weavers, and illustrators have each delivered two of their latest and greatest artworks, each one representing that artist’s signature style and medium. As always the exhibition will be accompanied by the “little red book,” the instantly-recognizable and always complimentary March exhibition catalog. This album allows visitors to carry home the entire show in their hands to share with friends and family or add to their library. Individuality, beauty, quality, and a wide variety of subjects and palettes reign when these 116 artworks fill CAA’s walls this month.
We invite you to toast the March Catalog Show and pick up a copy of the little red book at CAA’s Opening Reception on Saturday, March 9th, from 4 to 7pm. Meet your favorite artists, explore new local art, sip wine, and enjoy live jazz performed by the Rick Forschino Combo.
