Open Juried Show Gallery Coming Soon….

Show Gallery Coming soon…..

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be creating a gallery that will offer all of the works in the show for sale. Please be patient with us as we must add over 130 pieces to the site.

A note to the artists: all of the pieces will not show up at the same time, so if you see the gallery, but don’t see YOUR piece, please don’t email asking why.  We can only add one at a time, and as they are added, they automatically show up in the gallery. Answering questions about the gallery will slow down the process of creating it.

BAS – 145th Open Juried Show Results!

Thank you all registered Artists and Mr. Lee Umphrey, CEO of EMDC & Mr. Carl Little, Judge!!!

We did it! 1st ever Bangor Art Society Open Juried Show held virtually!
The art In-take was Monday June 1st, 202. Registration was spaced smoothly, (6ft apart), and masks were on! We had a couple curbside pick-ups too. It was fun! Thank you all for your cooperation and patience! Only a couple label mix-ups, that are fixed already!  We had 75 artists and 138 pieces of beautiful art that were all accepted! This year Carl asked if he could select an Honorable Mention in every Category. Therefore,  $25 will be awarded this year for Honorable Mention! Congratulations to all!

The awards ceremony was held live on our Bangor Art Society Facebook Page Friday, June 5th at 6:00 PM.
