It is the mission of the East Grand Forks Arts and Crafts Council to promote original art and crafts work in the East Grand Forks area, to give recognition to and, thereby, preserve the ethnic folk art and crafts that reflect the heritage of the Red River Valley, to bring professional artists and crafts people to East Grand Forks to teach and demonstrate their art or craft, to give art scholarships to talented students, to provide instruction in art and crafts to young people, to encourage and support creativity in all art forms.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: We are in desperate need of new craft council members. We have 8 members resigning and need at least 12 new members to continue the craft show. If you live in East Grand Forks or Grand Forks and are interested in committing to becoming a member. Our next meeting will be at Sacred Heart Cafeteria on Monday January 21 at 6:30 PM. Enter at door number 1. This will be our last meeting if we do not get enough new members.
Crafters, we do have a couple of openings for this year's show. Please apply if you are interested. You can find the application and instructions under the "application" tab above.
