The usual show on the Featured Wall at the Bakersfield Art Association Art Center in October was the artists that won Best in Show and First Place ribbons at the Kern County Fair. This year the Kern County Fair was cancelled and therefore the Bakersfield Art Association members who would have participated did not have that opportunity. Our members volunteer to work in the Art Room at the Kern County Fair and submitted many of the pieces that filled the walls. It seemed natural that we continue the tradition and have a “No Fair” show at the Bakersfield Art Association Art Center.
Thinking this would be a small group we were amazed to have 18 entrants. We were extremely pleased with the quantity and quality of the members work and are really glad that we can display the work at the Bakersfield Art Association on our Featured Wall. Artwork ranged in size and medium we selected one piece from each artist and the BAA now has a great show for the month of October. The art will be judged by a panel of Bakersfield Art Association artists with ribbons awarded for each medium. There will also be a special Best in Show selected, just like at the fair.
The BAA Art Center is open for viewing in October 11am-4pm Thursday thru Saturday. 1607 19th Street. Please come by and view our special exhibit, our “No Fair” display on our Featured Wall. Contact the Art Center for more information 661-869-2320.
