The Purchase Award Preview is a special reception that will be held on Friday evening November 9th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. At the preview we invite all who are considering buying works of art to view the show and submit bids (in a silent auction) for the artworks of their choice. The minimum bid is the asking price of the artist. Bid blanks must be turned in at the front desk no later than 9:00 pm Friday. The highest bid (above the asking price) will be the successful bidder.

These baskets can be filled with items ranging from jellies & jams to art pieces or art supplies. BAA will be raffling off an original Michael Dunn watercolor during this same time.
