6 x 6 for JRAC

August 24 - Sept. 19


2014 Artist Gathering Schedule DETAILS



Featured Exhibit


The Jordan River Arts Council achieved a major goal this summer when they purchased the building they have used for the past 25 years. It is a lovely old Carnegie Library located in the heart of downtown East Jordan. Now that they own the building the Arts Council is making plans for improvements that will better serve both visitors and artists. These include making both the building and restroom facilities accessible to all, increasing gallery space and having space available for classes, workshops and cultural gatherings.  Creating a blueprint that increases our space affordably while retaining the historical beauty of the present structure is the goal. The board members of the Jordan River Arts Council are enthusiastic about taking on these new challenges.

We are inviting area community members to share in this challenge with our first fundraiser  “6” x 6” for JRAC.”  Artists from around the area are creating small pieces of art measuring 6” x 6.”  Many media will be represented including oils, watercolor, fabric. printmaking, photography and pottery.  Art will be available in styles for everyone from funky and modern to very traditional.  Artwork will be sold unframed to keep the prices low. Work will be priced from $25. to $100.  If you are a collector of art this will be a great occasion to add to your collection. If you have never bought art this is a perfect time to start with so many pieces on display that are small enough to fit into the perfect spot in your home and affordable enough to purchase more that one.

For the past 25 years the Jordan River Arts Council has worked to provide area artists with a place to exhibit their work. We have created exhibitions that encourage creativity and artistic growth.  We have reached out to Antrim and Charlevoix county schools to bring art into the classroom. We have invited community members to share in viewing and learning about the talent that abounds in our area. With the purchase of the building our dream is to continue this tradition and to  expand our outreach. We hope to see many old friends and make new ones during this exhibit. The 6” x 6” for JRAC exhibit is open from August 24 through September 19 every day except Mondays from 1-4 in the afternoon. Our opening reception will be Sunday August 24 from 1-4 pm.  During the reception we will have art materials available in our lower level for any children and others who are young at heart and wish to create their own 6 x 6 artwork. The gallery is located at 301 Main Street in downtown East Jordan.  Take the time to visit, you will be amazed by the artwork you see.
