Miniature Show: Small Works Lead to New Works in 2020!

   Running through January 9, 2020 is our annual Holiday Miniature Show at Gallery on the Square, featuring small original works of art by BBAC members. Small works make great gifts any time of year, and you can peruse the gallery's permanent exhibits for that extra special one! 

    The membership holiday party included a reception for the event on Thursday, December 12 at Gallery On The Square.  This year, 17 pieces of art were awarded as door prizes.

Jim Senneff, the gallery director for BBAC, commented: "Musicians favored us with Christmas music twice during the evening. It was not only a good Starlight Shopping evening but also a great party. People came, had fun, enjoyed each other’s company, and bought art."
