In 1970, three local artists got together and decided to form an art association to showcase western North Dakota artists, thereby forming The Badlands Art Association.
Dennis Navrat, Jackie Church and Jan Plott held their first open Art Show in the basement of Community First National Bank (now Bank of the West) in November 1970. They were quickly joined in the following years by David and Mary Huether, Cherie Roshau, Beverly Haas, Kathy Foster, Jack Stewart, and Michael Dunn.
In November of 2020 BAA will Celebrate their 50th Annual Art Show!
The show will take place at the Grand Dakota Lodge in the Grand Roosevelt Hotel (formerly the Ramada Inn) 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.
Entry forms will be mailed to our members in August. If you are not a member of BAA, then now is the time to join.
Dickinson Museum Center is planning a photography exhibit showcasing Badlands Art Association artists. The exhibit will be on display from February 1 to 27, 2020 in the Joachim Museum wing at the Dickinson Museum Center.
This exhibit is created for photography only. It is open to all artists and features BAA artists.
HOW TO ENTER
Artists planning to submit their photographs must deliver their entry to the museum starting January 13th to 24th. Hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday thru Saturday. Please note that the Museum is closed on January 18th and 20th for Martin Luther King Day. Please use the Dinosaur Museum front doors for delivering your art pieces.
PRESENTATION OF YOUR WORK
Photographs must be framed or matted, ready for display. You can submit up to seven pieces, but if the exhibit is short of space, not all will be displayed. Attached to the back of the photo should be a card with the title of the piece, name of the artist, telephone number and price or NFS (not for sale). The museum will not be able to sell the art works, but can, and will share artists’ information, so please include a business card. Also accepted is an artist statement or information about the art piece on a letter-sized or smaller paper.
Artists can pickup their work starting March 6 into the following week.
