A New Beginning :: 2008
Posted December 30, 2007
The slumbering spirit of collective creativity and creative collectivity which is the Active Artists Alliance is stirring once again. The process of re-awakening has begun.

The first task which we must accomplish will be to design the new 2008 AAAlliance business cards. The current cards designed by Brooklyn Artist David Drayer are quickly becoming collectors items.

After the new designs have been submitted, we will have a voting period, and the winning design will be used to promote the AAAlliance's work throughout the upcoming year.

Any Graphic Designer who is interested in getting involved is invited to contact :

Thank You for another Great Summer!
We here at the AAAlliance would like to take this oppurtunity to thank everyone who came out and participated this summer. We had a blast, and met a ton of new artists and bands. We also got to meet the people who organize a couple of INCREDIBLE local art/music events, namely the Blind Baby's Holiday Family, and the guys from On The Sly, who hosted 3 Sweet Days in Fredonia this past weekend.
We'd also like to show our love for everyone involved with the Fleshpot Festival, even though things didn't work out this year. We will be looking forward to next year's party more than ever.

Thanks Again to all of you.
