WHAT WE do

 

Bowling Green Arts Commission (BGAC) was formed in July 2007 to foster art appreciation and experience in the historic town of Bowling Green and its surrounding Caroline County, Virginia.  


 

The BGAC has thrived due to its emphasis on utilizing the inspiration and skills of its members, who arrive with a variety of artistic backgrounds and specializations.  While the initial focus was on the visual arts, including painting, sketching, sculpture, pottery and artistic design, the scope of interest has recently expanded to include the nurturing of music and the performing arts as a form of artistic expression.

THE BOWLING GREEN ARTS COMMISSION IS PROUD OF ITS ACQUISITION OF THE SIDNEY E. KING PAINTINGS DEPICTING SCENES FROM THE CIVIL WAR.  

THESE PAINTINGS WILL BE THE CENTERPIECE OF THE NEW ARTS BUILDING IN THE CENTER OF TOWN.  THE BUILDING WILL HOUSE A VARIETY OF ARTWORK, AS WELL AS PROVIDE STUDIO AND CLASSROOM SPACE FOR ESTABLISHED AND BEGINNING ARTISTS FROM BOWLING GREEN, CAROLINE COUNTY, AND BEYOND.

The BG Art Commission is pleased to announce that is has become a statewide community partner of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The partnership program is open to independent, organized, and permanently established non-profit institutions in Virginia that maintain open membership, have a mission that is educational or aesthetic in purpose, and provide open access to programs and exhibitions provided by VMFA.
