BAGA "Square Foot Exhibit" Opens

Posted: Updated:
The Bismarck Art and Galleries Association in Bismarck is filled with artwork from creative minds all across the United States..

The 3rd annual Square Foot Exhibit kicked off at the gallery tonight.

120 paintings created by artists from 22 different states fill the walls and each is on sale for $130.

Normally, many of these paintings would cost much more, but event coordinators wanted the artwork to be affordable to everyone.

"Well each one of us have a certain type of art. Some people like abstract. Some like landscapes. Some like portraits, so even if they don't want to purchase one, it exposes them to all the other things that are out there so actually it's a learning experience as well," Event Coordinator Linda Christman said.

The member artist featured this year is Audrey Bauer from New Salem.

Most of her paintings are different landscapes from across North Dakota that she's taken pictures of over the years.

She says she started painting 30 years ago after she lost her 2 daughters in a tragic accident.

They were hit by a drunk driver when they were just 18 and 19-years old.

"Instead of sitting and feeling sorry for yourself find something constructive to do.. There's even beauty after sadness and tragedy," Audrey Bauer said.

The exhibit is open from 5 to 7 until August 29th, free of charge.

All of the paintings will be on display until then, even if they have already been purchased.
