2020-21  Holiday Miniature Show

   Come visit us (safely!) at our annual Holiday Miniature Show, which features small works 36" square or less. Works in this show provide creative alternatives for gift-giving. Though the works may be small in size, the impact of an original art gift is large. This show runs from December 3 through January 10. Stay tuned for a photo gallery posting of this annual show here, and see our Facebook and Instagram pages for ongoing updates. 


Protect the Dark Skies of the Big Bend

   The new year brings new hope in many ways this year, including a consciousness about our dark skies in the Big Bend. BBAC is proud to announce the theme for it's first show of 2021: Night Skies, running from January 14th through February 21 at Gallery on the Square in Alpine. 
   Artists wishing to enter the exhibit should see the prospectus and entry form below. The deadline for entering is January 10th. All artform media are welcome as long as the work is original and uses or references the theme in some way.

   NOTE: Gallery on the Square is adhering to safety guidelines for keeping you and the gallery hosts safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, while providing you with the enrichment of local Big Bend culture. If you are uncomfortable coming into the gallery, but are interested in a piece in the window or posted on our Facebook page, our hosts will be glad to bring it outside the gallery for your perusal.  Thank you for your cooperation and support of local artists.

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.

  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.
