Current Show: Make Your Mark

     The BBAC show Make Your Mark is a print show, highlighting printmaking in its many forms, from one-off handmade prints to limited edition prints of original paintings by BBAC Members. The exhibit runs through April 23rd.  

   Please join us for an opening reception on Saturday, March 9th from 5-8 at Gallery on the Square. The reception is being held in conjunction with the opening of our member Carol Fairlie's new show, "Chaos Theory" at the Catchlight Gallery next door. 

Just missed it? Our New Year, New Works show made for great Valentines! Many works are still available in the gallery. 

Upcoming Event: The R3 Show, Again!


Talk about recycling, we know a good theme when we've used it, and it's our annual R3 Show: Recycle, Repurpose, Reuse. R3 is an annual exhibit encouraging the use of materials that might otherwise be discarded or used for another purpose, and turning them into--what else? ART! The show will run from April 25th through June 18th. 

   More information about how to enter this show is coming soon! Stay tuned, and clean out your closets in the meantime.
