Several items were reviewed and planned at the November 2020 BBAC Board Meeting held on November 8th. Though the covid restrictions continue to curtail some of our gallery hours, the arts council is as lively as ever with an increase in online presence and outdoor events.
Gallery on the Square, our council's retail outlet in Alpine, will continue it's scaled back days and hours of operation, now Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm. However, the hours may be extended for special events and holidays as approved by the gallery steering committee.
Member artists can still get a good deal for their annual membership fee of $25, which is due now for the upcoming year through October, 2021. You can see a posting of upcoming shows through next spring, plus any special events will be posted here in our News Blog.
Briefly, here is the schedule for the upcoming shows through the spring. Calls and exhibit dates for specific shows, prospectus links and entry forms will be posted as they come up and accessible from the BBAC Home page:
Monthly and ongoing events open to all members are as follows:

BBAC has about a dozen smallish satellite dishes available for artists to repurpose and exhibit for sale in a special weekend show.
This show is slated for Spring of 2021 when the weather may permit an outdoor sidewalk sale. A suggested theme for the dishes will be Dark Skies, but is not strictly limited to that theme. Prospectus coming soon!
If you are interested in adopting (more like a Catch and release!) one of these dishes, please contact BBAC for pickup.
There will also be a People's Choice award via FB and in-person voting when images of the work are available.

Shout out and Thanks to Gallery on the Square members who kept the sales going during the recent shutdown. Lori Griffin, curator of the R3: Recycle, Reuse & Re-purpose Show, and Assistant Director Amanda Calhoun made sure artwork was visible in the front windows and available for viewing and purchase by appointment only.
Meanwhile, our BBAC director Jan Moeller, GOTS director Jim Senneff and gallery member artist and schedule manager Diane Baylor kept the ship afloat and the keel even during transitions in gallery hours during the reopening phases.
Special thanks also to all the members who have stepped up ready to work again and to ensure the safety for hosts and visitors as well.
