OUR 2018 YEAR IN REVIEW
Dear BSAA members and friends,
This year has been another productive one. We have added benches and landscaping to the monument to the military and first responders. We had a successful and rainy Festival of the Arts indoors for the first time. We doubled the size of our gallery by expanding into our classroom and meeting space. This has allowed us to include additional artists and more of all artists’ work. We also began opening the gallery every 1st Saturday from 9 am – 1 pm. We will be open several times in December.
Our members taught a variety of workshops, classes and demonstrations- Chinese brushstroke painting, using the pottery wheel, Origami, Hawaiian quilting, photographing liquids, mosaics, acrylic pour paintings, writing Haiku, and others. We had three very interesting talks on using social media, framing and how to sell art. We went on a field trip to the Nelson-Atkins museum for a presentation on ancient manuscripts and tour the most recent exhibit. We have welcomed several new members this year as well. Thank you to everyone who has worked to make this a fun and creative organization!
