Current Show: ClayWorks Annual Show and Cup Invitational

   Celebrating the medium of clay by artists of the Big Bend and beyond, the 2020 Annual ClayWorks Show and Cup Invitational is now running through August 11, 2020, with a reception to be announced later depending upon social distancing guidelines. Check out the photos below and please support our local Big Bend Arts Council clay artists. 
   The good news is  that Gallery on the Square is now open to the public Thursdays - Saturdays 11 am - 5 pm and Sundays 10 am - 5 pm. The gallery limits the number of visitors at one time, and asks that you please wear a mask to ensure the safety of our hosts and other visitors. Enjoy the show and peruse the permanent exhibits as well.

   NOTE: If you are uncomfortable coming into the gallery, but are interested in a piece in the window or posted on our Facebook page, our hosts will be glad to bring it outside the gallery for your perusal.  Thank you for your cooperation and support of local artists.

Gallery Gets Creative During Temporary Shutdown

Shout out and Thanks to Gallery on the Square members who kept the sales going during the recent shutdown. Lori Griffin, curator of the R3: Recycle, Reuse & Re-purpose Show, and Assistant Director Amanda Calhoun made sure artwork was visible in the front windows and available for viewing and purchase by appointment only. 

   Meanwhile, our BBAC director Jan Moeller, GOTS director Jim Senneff and gallery member artist and schedule manager Diane Baylor kept the ship afloat and the keel even during transitions in gallery hours during the reopening phases. 

   Special thanks also to all the members who have stepped up ready to work again and to ensure the safety for hosts and visitors as well.
