ArtReach St. Croix

A nonprofit organization

ArtReach St. Croix believes that the visual, literary and performing arts bring beauty, joy, comfort and community to the St. Croix Valley. Our work connects individuals and communities with the arts throughout the Valley. 

Our local artists continue to produce great work right now despite the Covid-19 quarantine we experience today. Their livelihoods depends on all of us working together online and remotely to continue the vibrant and supportive arts community we all love so much.  

Please help us help them! Now more than ever, your generous financial support is needed to enable our work supporting these individual artists and arts organizations.

The ArtReach St Croix Galleries feature exhibitions of local artists that are free and open to everyone. Painting, photography, ceramics and more rotate throughout the seasons. Your gift celebrates and promotes the diverse talent in the St. Croix Valley and provides this scarce resource - a venue for artists to share their work.

Take Me to the River, a series of art fairs, festivals, open studios and arts events taking place across the St. Croix Valley every September.

Programs across the valley, such as a traveling exhibition, book clubs, and performing arts events foster a love of the literary arts. Your gift provides crucial funds for matching this grant and making the impact of the Big Read even bigger!

Together, we can be stronger, more resilient and better prepared to share our creativity with our communities up and down the riverway!
