Saturday October 5, 10:30am - 5pm

Contact person:  Wendy Keeney-Kennicutt, BVAL treasurer,




Artist & Eligibility
  • Open to all artists. There is no theme. We cannot accept any works which are politically, religiously or sexually charged. Tasteful nudes are accepted.

  • There is no requirement to be a member of the Brazos Valley Art League (BVAL).

  • Entries must meet the deadline for application & payment (if a non-member).

  • Art is defined for this sale as any expression of art that is original with you:  painting, pastels, fabric art, photography, pottery, wearable art, folk art, prints of your work, etc.


Entry Fee
  • Members $0

  • Non-Members $50

  • Each artist is allocated approximately 6’ x 8’ space, however depending on participation, you may be given more space.  You are encouraged to bring your own easels, tables, etc.  There is no limit to the number of pieces.  We suggest you bring extra and keep them in your car just in case we can find you more space.


  • This is a 360° panorama of the space.  It is a rectangular space about 33’ x 44’. There are a total of eight 6’ round tables, two rectangular 8’ tables and a fair amount of wall space.  We can remove some tables and chairs. We cannot put nails in the wall.  There is a hanging system, but each can handle only a total of 33 lbs and there are only 24 total.  We do have extra hooks.  We are going to bring our pro-panels. Each person who wants one might be able to have one 7’x4’ panel to hang art.  BVAL will bring the hooks. As a league, we will all have to work together to share the space and make sure everyone has a fair share of the space. BVAL does have both floor and table easels, but not enough for everyone.



What You as an Artist Receive:
  • A space to showcase and sell your work.

  • Free advertising via TV, radio, social media, local calendars and print

  • No tax worries – BVAL will take care of collecting and submitting sales tax to the state.

  • All artists are responsible for their own space and should stay the entire time, or pair up with another artist to split their time. 

  • Each artist is required to have a receipt book with duplicates.  When a person wants to buy an item, the artist will write out the receipt with price and the person will take a copy of the receipt and the item to the treasurer near the door, where they will pay.
