NOW SHOWING AT GALLERY ON THE SQUARE
Curators for the show are Kathleen Griffith and Ellen Weinacht. Ellen explained how the show came about:
"I am reminded of a park logo: half the park is after dark. North light is best for artists--what about the North Star? This show challenges artists to use new eyes, look for new shadows, how to make night-time colors come alive, more mystery and magic.
Last January, on behalf of Tierra Grande master naturalists, I asked if GOTS could sponsor a Dark/Night skies exhibition to help celebrate our wonderful dark skies and promote awareness of losing them. Since that time we have formed the West Texas Friends of the Night Sky organization. Their brochures featuring good lighting practices will be available for all visitors."

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.
Note: Bank/Hospital rotational exhibits are on hold beginning the week of Thanksgiving, 2020, after Richard Curtin's exhibit ends, as the indoor bank lobby is currently not open for business. However, members may still sign up for these exhibits at the gallery, or by contacting Shelly Rogers.
