New Year, New Works Show at GOTS

   Big Bend Arts Council and Gallery on the Square want to wish the community a very Happy New Year! Now is the time to focus on the "new," and the annual show featuring new works by BBAC  members runs from January 13th. A mix of media, genre and subjects will be on display at Gallery on the Square through March 1st. 

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.

   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.
