August 2020 news from BAA:
– Our Annual Spring Show has been rescheduled as a VIRTUAL art show in September! Details will be announced soon. Winners will be judged by Lian Quan Zhen and there will be $1700 in prizes. The board has been busy adjusting plans and changing schedules to accommodate the “new normal” (how we will learn to dislike that term). Our big news is that we have decided to have the art show in September as a virtual event. Same judging by world renowned, Lian Quan Zhen, same criteria, same prizes – but without meeting in a crowded venue. We will be able to thank our donors and sponsors online and at the Gallery. Without them, we would not be able to have a superb artist to judge our work, we would not be able to provide awards amounting to $1,700.00 and we would not have the opportunity to showcase the great talent in our community.
Winners will be announced online on Friday, September 11. We will ask that the winners provide their pieces for a display in the Price Tower Gallery from September 14 until September 30th so guests can “oooohhh” and “awwww” as they gaze upon your work.
In the next few days, we will be getting out the word, building the web site for the show that will include the ability to sell pieces. The prospectus has been revised to reflect the adaptation to a virtual show.
Change can be uncomfortable. The last few months have demonstrated that. But change can spark new ideas, new approaches, and new ways of sharing. Let us approach this virtual show will eagerness to learn, share and celebrate. Since this is a novel approach for us, the board and the association will be making a lot up as we go along. Help us with your observations and suggestions. After all, this is YOUR art show!
– Wednesday Open Studios morphed into a plein air group that has been meeting on Wednesday mornings to paint and draw at a comfortable distance from each other. If you are interested in the plein air group, contact Meg Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Art Center “face lift” Board member, Janet Odden, has spent many hours planning a more efficient footprint for the Art Center. A contractor was hired to divide the kitchen space with half now serving as a small office. She writes ”Lots of things are happening at the art center even though we have been closed much of the summer. We have given the art center a face lift, starting with a new floor. The classrooms have been reorganized with more efficient access, better lighting, more storage and fresh paint. We’ve moved the office and rearranged the library and kitchen. We think you will love how open and bright our space is now. Once everything is in place you are going to want to see it and then sign up for a class this fall.”
