The Boulder Art Association would like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make this year's Juried Art Exhibition such a great success. To all of the artists, volunteers, members, corporate sponsors, community supporters - and especially to our amazing judge, Nancy Wylie, thank you. We couldn't have done it without each and every one of you.
A letter From the show co-chairs:
The BAA Annual Juried Art Exhibition was held at Hyatt Place/Boulder again this year, and it was a great event! The Opening Reception was very well attended and everyone enjoyed the refreshments provided by Hyatt Place, Sprouts and Street Legal Pizza.
The co-chairpersons worked very hard on this exhibit, and are so appreciative of the many volunteers who helped the event be a success, including President, Sharon Samson; Treasurer, Ray Geier, and the BAA Marketing Team (Ed Narvaez, Cait McQuaid, Jo Richardson, & Lori Mattina). A special thank you to LAG for the loan of additional show grid panels and Dar Miner for the delivery and pick up of the grid panels. We are also grateful for the volunteers who helped set up & take down grids; hang, take down and check out the artwork; and set up, sit the show & check out the gift shop items. Lastly, we want to thank Tom Weeks, our Juried Show photographer.
We received 345 beautiful entries from 123 artists. Our juror, Nancy Wylie, juried in 104 artists and 129 pieces of exceptional artwork. Nancy attended the reception to announce the awards and to talk about the award-winning paintings. BAA gave $850 in cash awards, and our wonderful donors sent certificates, gift cards and merchandise valued at $1800.
