Spring Member Show + Art Deco Revisited BAA Wall

Exhibit at R Gallery from March 27 – April 28

The year was 1923 when Jean Sherwood, patron of the arts, and FBR Hellems, CU Dean of Arts & Sciences, started the Boulder Art Association. It was the early 20s, and Art Deco was all the rage! In celebration of our 100 years (and counting), our 8×8″ panel theme is “Art Deco Revisited“. 

Our Art Deco Revisited & Spring Member Shows invite member artists to submit two works with TWO SEPARATE REGISTRATIONS.

1) Spring Member Exhibit -Open Theme/Artist choice

2) 8×8″ BAA Wall Panel – Inspired by “Art Deco Revisited”

REGISTRATION is OPEN NOW through March 10th!

  • BAA membership must be current.
  • Entry Fees: 

Spring Member Exhibit $30 

Spring Member 8×8” Art Deco Revisited $15

Artists must fill out the required ROC (Record of Consignment) form with R Gallery for both shows. This will be sent from R Gallery after the registration deadline. (See dates below.)

Commissions – 60% to the artist

Exhibit Location: R Gallery & Wine Bar 2027 Broadway Boulder CO 80302


  1. Spring Member Show 

Enter your latest and greatest piece up to 40″ x 40”! Important note: Due to space limitations, this show can only fit a limited amount of work. Submissions will be closed once we either:
1) Reach the limit of available space (First come, first served)
2) Or reach the March 10th deadline

 Enter early to make sure your work is included! First come, first served means once we reach the space limit, we cannot accept any more work and registration will be turned off.

Although size restriction is up to 40×40”, we may ask artists with larger work if they have a smaller piece.

More details:

  • Artist members may submit one single work, diptych or triptych (diptychs & triptychs total measurements also must fit within 40×40”)
  • Sculpture (3D Art) – 3D artists might need to supply a pedestal, depending on submissions and gallery supply
  • The BAA, along with R Gallery, has final say regarding all exhibited work. Artists may be asked to submit a different piece to participate in the show.
  • Artists must measure art INCLUDING FRAME for registration. Inaccurate measurements may disqualify your piece!
  • Accepted art is First Come, First Served! While our intention is to accept as much submitted member art as possible, we may reach space limitations before the deadline. In this case, artists will be notified via a BAA newsletter announcement plus it will be noted on the website that registrations has closed
