BAA Annual Show

2021 We Celebrate Our 51th Annual Art Show!
November 12 – 14 in Dickinson, North Dakota

The Badlands Art Show is an open show.  An “open” show means that you do not have to pass a judge to get in the show.  The Badlands Art Association is a small group; this is our major event for the year.  We do the show in order to offer artists of all abilities the opportunity to showcase their work and to give the public a chance to see the wide range of art being created in our area. The three-day regional fine art  show features many different artworks including clay pottery, oil paintings, water colors, pencil sketches, and photography.

There are three divisions to the show: amateur and professional, plus a student show.
Student entries are coordinated through local schools.**

To enter the Badlands Art Show, you must submit the Call for Entry form listing your art entries. The Call for Entry forms for the adult divisions are mailed to BAA Members in August. Entry forms should be returned to the BAA by the specified deadline, typically mid-October.

If you want early notification of the BAA show, please join BAA as a member.
