BAC Artists Attend Workshop

A watercolor workshop about painting Michigan trees was presented by artist Betty Bea Washburn Tuesday, August 15th in Bellaire.  She focused on “floating” pigment across water on the paper and letting it loosely define a tree shape.  Attendees practiced this technique, as well as pouring paint for the sky area, then incorporated what had been taught into a composition.  Those participating from our BAC were Su Bishop, Jackie Wollenberg, and Elaine Dettman.unnamed

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

IMG_1803The BAC  commemorated the installation of  new signs with a ribbon cutting event  Friday, August 5 th. Jim Baumann from the Boyne City Chamber of Commerce and the BAC board members welcomed visitors to the newly located gallery.  It was a well attended.   Jackie Wollenberg, curator for the gallery, thanked those in attendance for the ceremony, and expressed appreciation to those that have helped to make the BAC a successful venue in downtown Boyne City.  Special thanks went to Bruce Janssen from The Wood Shop for his beautiful craftsmanship in making both the building sign and the sidewalk sandwich board.  You have only to look around the downtown area to see his contribution to making Boyne City a success.

SOBO ARTS FESTIVAL

ElfAnother reason to have visited  Boyne City in June was  to enjoy the SOBO Arts Festival , Saturday and Sunday, June 25th and 26th.  BAC artists Su Bishop and Jackie Wollenberg painted up a piano,  and 2 chairs were painted by Christine Lee and Valerie Ash for auction that offered  a colorful addition to the festivites and coming holiday.   “Crazy Hats” were done by Jackie as well.  Pat and Tom Terry volunteered to sell raffle tickets and help at the event.   The BAC also contributed to support sculpture added to the riverfront.  Look for the Elf along the walkway.  Click on our SOBO link toIMG_2608IMG_2603
