BBAC Membership Show in Progress
Arts Council members' exhibit includes ArtWalk events.

Artwork by BBAC members is highlighted in the current show at Gallery on the Square. The 2021 Annual Membership Show runs through December 7th, during which time the annual Alpine ArtWalk takes place, an event currently scheduled for November 19th and 20th. The arts council hosts several shows throughout the year, and this one coincides with its annual membership drive. The new membership year begins November 1st and runs through October 31st, 2022. 

Annual Holiday Show Redesigned!
2021 Holiday Affordable Art Show

  Following the member show, GOTS hosts a favorite opportunity for visitors to do their holiday shopping and support local arts at the same time. But this year, what was traditionally a "miniature" art show has been redesigned. 
   In the 2021 Holiday Affordable Art Show, original hanging art up to 24" by 30," much larger than the miniature restrictions, can be submitted. Prices of artwork for sale may not be more than $300. Artists may still submit miniature artwork, and a link for the new prospectus is below.
   All work must be submitted by December 7th for this show that runs through the new year.

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.
