Creature/ Comfort, A Special BAC Members Exhibition

October 23, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 7:00 pm
Beckley Art Center
600 Johnstown Rd

The fall season is a magical one where two moods emerge and coexist. When the nights start to cool down and leaves burst with color, some of us pull out our comfy blankets and fill ourselves with warm pumpkin spice everything. Some of us dust off our capes, polish our fangs, and binge our monster movie playlist.
Beckley Art Center’s Dan & Cynthia Bickey Art Gallery wants you, our members, to use both ways to enjoy the season as inspiration for our next exhibition, Creature/Comfort.
As the title suggests, we are calling for submissions of original artwork that follow the prompts of creature and comfort. We hope to showcase some work that features the spooky, Halloweenesque themes, and some that feature themes about warmth and well-being. We think this mashup will be as fun as a relaxingly, an eerie helping of monster mashed potatoes!
Please feel free to message us if you have questions about the call for entry. If you are not a member and want to submit work, this is the perfect time to become one! Sign up to become a member with your submissions, and the next 3 months of 2020 will be included for free in your 2021 membership.
