“The Alameda Art Fair and Maker Market serves to bring Alameda and Bay Area artists together with the greater community. We create a very inexpensive way for local artists to expose their work to adults and children in Alameda. Artists are encouraged to create artwork during the fair, so the attendees can see artists in action. This helps support a vibrant and creative community.
The Alameda Summer Art Fair is organized by ARTPUSH, Alameda Artists Group, and Studio 23 Gallery.
ARTPUSH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to promote and support the arts and artists through programs and events that enhance and strengthen the community. All proceeds from the fair go to ARTPUSH.
The Alameda artists group is an organization composed of over 2000 local artists and run by local artists. We host monthly events including the 2nd Friday Alameda Art Walk, monthly figure drawing classes, and periodic sketch, drawing and painting meetups. We also offer workshops and special classes. All of our classes and events are open to the public and all are welcome.
Studio 23 is a community gallery space that opens once a month to the public. We have regular group shows that feature local Alameda and Bay Area artists. We also hold classes and workshops and special events. We help bring emerging artists into the public, and connect the public with the local arts community.
Island Alliance of The Arts (IAA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that has been based in Alameda since 1982. The organization serves to help promote and foster the arts across the entire island of Alameda. IAA sponsors the annual Cross Currents show and will be presenting the IAA Live stage for the Summer Art Fair. Find out more about IAA here.
