Outreach

Lindsay Masters and Darcy Herrett

BAC is getting a makeover! Please note that starting January 2, 2018 the gallery will be closed for remodeling. We will reopen on March 10, 2018—same location, new space, new name. Our Art RentalArt After 60, and Creative Connections programs will run during the closure. Learn more on our 2018 Makeover page.


BAC is the only nonprofit art gallery in Kitsap County that supports working artists’ livelihoods through year-round exhibitions and sales, while also providing completely free art outreach programs to schools, seniors, and the healthcare community.

Through our education and outreach programming, we help ensure that:

K-12 student artists get a chance to exhibit art and develop their talent. Each year we host two student shows and award three college scholarships to talented high school seniors.

Local art teachers get help obtaining needed supplies. Last year we distributed $3,300 in grants to fill the gap in art teachers’ supply and programming budgets.

Art After 60

Seniors in retirement centers get access to free art education at their residences. Last year, Art After 60 served 30 seniors per month at three centers, creating transformative opportunities for residents to socialize, share stories, and become artists.

People in hospitals and treatment centers experience the healing power of art. Art in the Lobby and Art Rental take artwork and free art activities into healthcare settings, helping to ease stress and promote well-being in patients, families, and even staff.
