2022 BAA Annual Fall Show
Bethlehem Public Library for the month of November
The Show will run from November 1 through November 30
A reception at the Library was held on November 17. The juror for the show, local artist Gary Shankman, was on hand to talk about the show and the awards that were granted. We have enjoyed Gary's presence at BAA events many times and were delighted to have him back. Gary's presentation about the artwork in the show was both informative and entertaining. Gary has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Boston University and a Master of Fine Arts Degree from American University. Gary has retired as a full professor at Sage College of Albany. His oil paintings have been on display internationally.
If you're unable to make it to the library, or would like to review the show again from the comfort of your home, please enjoy our Online Show!

BAA September 2022 Monthly Meeting
Palette Knife Painting with Ken Wilson
Covid still haunts us. The scheduled presenter was exposed and had to cancel. We were fortunate to have Ken Wilson, a local artist from Saratoga, step in. Ken is an oil painter who paints both powerful, detailed thoroughbreds and peaceful and sublime landscapes. In Ken's words, "I have always been fascinated and influenced by the works of the Old Masters, as well as the landscape artists of the Hudson River School. I think that is evident in my work." At the meeting Ken gave a very interesting and very well received demonstration of how to use a palette knife in creating paintings.

The 2022 BAA Art Show and Sale
It was great to be back!
After a hiatus of several years, and by popular demand, our traditional "One Day Art Sale" took place on May 21 at the Delmar Reformed Church. It was an opportunity to see, discuss and have the opportunity to purchase the wonderful art our members have been working on. In addition to many long time members, several newer members shared their works at the Show.
If you were unable to attend, or would just enjoy revisiting the show, we've posted a montage of "Scenes from the Show".
