A Note About Membership

The BBAC membership year is from November 1 through Oct 31 each year.  Our annual membership drive promotes our annual member show, which exhibits through the Art Walk weekend, the biggest art event of the year. 

Memories from ClayWorks 2016: There are still many works of clay for sale at GOTS from the show in member exhibits.

Current Show:


An exhibit of plein air works by local Big Bend Artists is ongoing at Gallery on the Square. The show runs through May 16. Please pass the word and join us at the reception on Friday evening, March 31. 

If you haven't been to a GOTS reception, this is your chance to join in a relaxing and fun evening, surrounded by colorful local art. Refreshments will be served.
