Here’s a thoughtful message from BAA co-chair Jan Coombs:
Friends of Downtown Belleville…this is a new group being formed under the leadership of Pam Sylvan, The Downtown Gal of the Intelligencer. The reason we should all become part of this is that we all want to expand our membership at the BAA. Membership is how we pay the rent at the gallery. Through forming partnerships with others who care about downtown Belleville, they will get to know who and where we are, and likewise us for them.
For more details, read Pam’s article in today’s Intelligencer or google the title.
Another thought: I think we are the only gallery where budding artists can have their work displayed beside Canadian award winning artists and professionals. Do you know of anyone who is at the beginning stages of “getting their art out there”? ( jewellery, pottery, photography, painting…) We are the place to be!!!!!
