James LaMantia Comments: “Thank you for the opportunity to jury the 2020 National Art League Exhibition. While the pandemic affected how I physically viewed the works, it did not affect the quality of the art that was submitted. I was greatly impressed with the level of talent which made the jurying challenging. I was also pleasantly surprised with the range of work which pushed the limits of the mediums. Even breaking out past its edges on several occasions.
As a gallerist of 31 years, I am reminded daily of the role that art plays in our lives. Your submissions were not merely artistic creations, but I would argue that they have healing characteristics. Healing powers whereas people can escape the challenges that they are facing today. A place to find peace. Even if for a brief period.”

BAC offers short term residencies attracting artists at different stages of their careers from around the world for the development of both new works and works in progress. BAC welcomes artists working across most disciplines, including visual artists in any medium, writers, playwrights, choreographers, musicians, composers, performance artists, filmmakers, and lighting, projection, costume and sound designers. During their time on site, these artists will develop new works while engaging with local artists and the public.
The spirit of the program is to provide a collective environment for artists of all disciplines where they can engage in meaningful interaction and stimulating discussions with their peers, while pursuing individual or group projects. It is an ideal setting for the exchange of ideas, the inspiration for new work, and the harmonious cross-fertilization of disciplines. Successful applicants are typically mid-career or established artists. However, emerging artists who believe their work is of exceptional merit are eligible as well.
We accept applications from individual artists and small groups of up to 4 members. If you have more than 4 group members please email BAC staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need to know all team members name and contact information when you apply.
