BAG January Newsletter

  Next Meeting (Virtual): Tue, Feb 9, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
  • BAG Member Meeting (Virtual) at 1:00-2:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month
  • Our monthly art theme for February is “Where the heart is.”
  • Upload a photo of art on the theme to share during the meeting at this link. Uploading photos of your art to the website so Camie could share the images as a slideshow worked so well that we strongly encourage you to do this rather than hold the art up to your camera.
  • The meeting will take place on Google Meet (meeting link).
As part of our mission to connect with each other and support each other as people and artists, we are hosting virtual monthly member meetings, easily joined from home using a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
