ClayWorks 2022 & Cup Invitational

The 2022 ClayWorks show at Gallery on the Square is an annual ceramics show that has become a destination event as well as a local favorite. This will be the 6th year for the Cup Invitational, which displays cups of all shapes, sizes, and functionality from across the country and even internationally. 

   Entries must be from BBAC Members (entry fee covers new membership) and there are some restrictions on the type of clay art that is eligible. See the link to the prospectus and entry form for more information. The deadline for entry is June 7th. 

Sign Up for Bank & Hospital Shows

   Rotating exhibits at the West Texas National Bank and Big Bend Regional Medical Center are great opportunities for BBAC members to display your wall art to new sets of eyes in our community.  Currently, Cynthia Hurayt's photography is up at the bank (WTNB). 

   The BBAC show at WTNB and BBRMC is currently underway and is open to all members to exhibit work for a month at each location. Two-dimensional work that will fit on easels is welcome. To sign up or for more information, please contact Shelly Rogers: or 432-294-1538.
