Art Council

The Art Council is a sub-group of the Bosque Arts Center made up of a volunteer board. Potential Art Council members shall have demonstrated at least two years of commitment to the goals of the organization by being an Art Patron or showing evidence of service supporting the visual fine arts. All members serve a term of three years. Officers are elected for one-year terms. The Art Council sponsors several art-related events ranging from the annual Bosque Art Classic juried art show to special seminars/talks given by local artists and/or gallery owners, to a high school art show promoting art students from Bosque County. The Council also sponsors workshops by artists Bruce Greene, Martin Grelle, and guests artists.

In 2009, the Council implemented a "Featured Artist" program promoting the art of several artists in the Arts Center's 2nd Floor Gallery.

The Art Council year runs from October through September.
