‘Back Nine’ Portraits – New Open Studio Opportunity :

BCAC is partnering with the Barrington Council On Aging (BCOA) to produce a celebratory event of ‘Life on the back nine’. The objective is to highlight the interesting lives and rich experiences of those folks of an ‘uncertain age’.

BCOA representative, Joyce Palmquist, will be recruiting seniors to share their stories and sit for portraits. The event will culminate in an exhibit during May (Senior Month) of next year, when portraits will be shared with the public in an official Opening at the BCAC IHM gallery.

The Portrait sittings will be held twice a month at the Gallery – one weekday morning and one Sunday afternoon, typically at the end of the month.  The schedule is dependent on model availability and will be published two weeks in advance, as possible.  Space is limited so you’ll be asked to sign up in advance.  Artists will need to bring their own choice of materials, including an easel. These events will be open to all artists, members and non-members. The Fee for member artists to participate is $10 per session, non-members $15.
