The Bosque Art Classic in Clifton goes contemporary in its 35th year this week, but don’t worry about that affecting the western art that’s at the core of the long-running show.
Due to concerns of COVID-19 spread, the show will go online this year at bosqueartscenter.org, with a Facebook video by juror and Bosque County artist Bruce Greene and an online sale from Monday to Sept. 26.
Greene, a longtime member of the Cowboy Artists of America, curated the more than 200 pieces in this year’s show and will provide an overview in his opening remarks at 7 p.m. Saturday on Facebook. The video opener also will announce the winners in oil/acrylic, drawing, sculpture, pastel and water media.
This year’s Classic features six Waco artists among the 120 represented in the show: Joe Barbieri, Joel Edwards, Daniel Anz, Greg Lewallen, Marsha Wilson and Linda Filgo.
BAC Art Patrons will get first shot at buying works from this year’s show this weekend, with the public online sale running from 10 a.m. Monday to 2 p.m. Sept. 26 at bosqueartscenter.org.
Three Baylor University art department professors also have works in other online shows this fall. Photography professor H. Jennings Sheffield has two pieces, “Keeping Loved Ones Close” and “5yrs Tethered 8 am to 6 am,” in this year’s Third Coast National Biennial held at KSpace Contemporary in Corpus Christi.
Joining her is painting professor Winter Rusiloski, whose “Looking For Tires” is in the juried show, which features 60 works selected from 609 submitted. San Antonio artist Rigoberto Luna was the biennial juror. The show runs through Oct. 2 at kspacecontemporary.org.
Baylor printmaking professor Kyle Chaput has a print in the seventh Biennial International Footprint Competition, which opens Sunday at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, Connecticut. The juried exhibit features prints from 91 artists from around the world.
Chaput also has a piece in the Fourth International Printmaking Biennial that opens this month in Cacak, Serbia.
