2023-2024 BRAF's Annual Juried "ARTinME Showcase"

The juried ARTinME (Art in Maine) exhibition was the premier event of BRAF's 2023 season.  The show, juried by Diana Kerr, featured only large format artworks. It was so striking, unique, and rare to view the volume of impressive and sizable works presented at one time.  Quite a crowd gathered for the awards presentations to Carol Wiley, Doug Houle, Charlie Nowell, and Jeanne Ouellette.

2023 APRIL:   BRAF Annual Boothbay Regional Student Art Show

Once again BRAF hosted an exhibition of the truly fun, inspiring, and "above and beyond" works by regional K through 12th-grade students. The educators organized the show that clearly illustrated the talent of the students and teachers alike.  Central to BRAF's mission is encouraging and supporting the artistic interest and talent of the area youth through financial aid scholarships and exhibitions.  If you wish to support these non-profit BRAF endeavors, please consider donating or volunteering your time or talents.


2023 February/March:  MAINELY NUDE - A celebration of the human form

BRAF's 2023 first show certainly lived up to all expectations. The Opening Reception was enjoyed by a throng of attendees admiring and enjoying the many works honoring the human form, some whimsical and some stunningly executed.  Sarah Wilde and Rick Dickinson shared the People's Choice Award although the close voting was illustrious of the variety and quality of the submissions.  Congratulations to all the artists who participated and a thank you to all of you who visited.
