EAAM's main goal is to build community, but creating events and opportunities takes resources beyond time and talent. EAAM charges no dues and takes as little commission as possible from artists' sales. If you'd like to support future EAAM programs and have the capacity to contribute to our operating capital, you can give through our PayPal account.
Your contributions will help us grow our capacity to continue creating opportunities for artists who need it most.
**EAAM is NOT a non-profit entity, and donations to EAAM are NOT tax-deductible.
The best part about being an organization of artists is that we have all this creativity to draw on! We are most happy when we are supporting ourselves through our creative practice. If you want to help spread the word about EAAM, our totes, stickers, and other merch will help you share the love.
Proceeds from these items go directly to our operating funds.
The Emerging Artists Alliance exists to support emerging artists of all ages in building their audiences, making connections and most importantly finding community within the arts in Monterey. The best way to help us grow is to show up for yourself and your fellow artists. You can sign up for our email list, join us at one of our monthly events, visit us at local events like West End, Monterey Pride, the MC Artists Open Studio Tour and this year's Arts for the Cause event.

In this directory, you'll find a collection of local artists selling a variety of different hand-made pieces. Not only is each artist's work unique, but a purchase from any of these incredible creators will help them grow their business, buy new supplies, or develop their craft and no matter what, your support encourages them to continue making.
This guide is by no means exhaustive, but a selection of EAAM artists, community members and new friends who have reached out. Note that we've only listed artists with websites, but that doesn't mean your favorite insta artist wouldn't be thrilled to know you're interested in their work! If you like what you see, here or on social media, we encourage you to reach out. It never hurts to ask!
