BAA Artist Directory

Discover BAA Artist Members in our comprehensive and ever-expanding Artist Directory.

You are a part of the BAA’s mission to connect artists and community, inspire creativity, and increase access to the visual arts. Maybe you donate every year. Your contributions are the foundation of the BAA, and we thank you for your ongoing support. If you can give more, this is a great year to do so. Maybe you’ve put a few dollars in a jar at a BAA exhibit or fundraiser. Would you consider making an annual gift? You can do this easily by mail or online through our website. Perhaps you once made a $10 contribution to be in the Artists Directory, and we’ve kept your name there for people to reach out and learn more about you and your work. Will you donate $10 again, and commit to doing so monthly or annually? 

If you’d like to be included in the listing as a BAA Artist, please use the Artist Directory Google Form to submit your information.

The Directory is constantly growing. If you have recently submitted a form to be listed as an artist, please know we handle additions on a rolling basis. Thank you for your patience!
