As of April 1st 2017 the BAC board will increase the commission to 30% for all art sales. This is due to the ongoing expenses we encounter.
Vinyl lettering with our name and website on the bottom of our gallery window was put in place and a thank you was sent to John McClure of Classic Instruments who donated the lettering.
Likewise, we sent a note of thanks to Jim Baumann and Ashley Cousens of the Boyne Chamber for enabling our participation at the Boyne Business Expo.
A holiday wreath was purchased from the Boyne Garden Club for the gallery door.
The BAC board also approved funding for an ad in the Boyne Magazine and Michigan Art Guide to encourage interest in our gallery for visitors to our area throughout the year. Val Ash is responsible for development and will handle this.
Lastly, the board toured the newly opened non-profit Create Studio on Ray St in Boyne City that offers art programs for area K-5th grade students. We hope to form a collaboration to support their effort to reach children in our surrounding area.
