The Art of Us

Join us for “The Art of Us”

This exhibition strives to highlight the diversity of artistic styles and mediums while using the human form (mannequins), for the not-so-subtle message that diversity has value in arts and culture. We have about 40 local and national artists highlighting their creative visions through a variety of mediums, including mosaic, glass, metal, paint, fiber arts, and Kintsugi, to name a few.  These works are currently on display around the Flathead Valley, thru mid-August.

A Reception and Auction at The Nest on Swan River,  August 15, 5 to 7pm, will give everyone an opportunity to bid on their favorite piece!

$75pp or $125 per couple. Tickets for sale at BACC and at Frame of Reference, Whitefish.  For more information, click here.

BF High School Art Student Show

We always open the season with one of our favorite shows! Our very own BF art students display their works. A silent auction generates proceeds, 100% of which go to a Bigfork family in need, chosen by the students themselves. The exhibit opens Tuesday March 12 and runs thru Saturday March 23. Artist Reception – free to everyone – is Wednesday, March 20, 5pm to 7pm. For more information, call BACC.

Reloved Redux

The response to our art “resale” was so good that BACC is rehanging the art work from our Members’ private collections. Eclectic and enticing, an array of styles, different periods and mediums, with prices ranging from $25 to $3500.
Truly something for everyone! Do not miss this unique opportunity to acquire art.
