Being a BVAA member is a wonderful opportunity to meet and socialize with artists of varying skill levels and mediums. Each year we host several members-only shows to showcase your works.

Members receive our frequent e-newsletter which tells of upcoming meetings and guest demonstrators, upcoming shows and exhibitions both regionally and nationally, member news (exhibits and awards), and other events sponsored by the association such as workshops, field trips, and art shows. Members receive discounts from our sponsors.

Many of our members are highly accomplished and belong to such organizations as the Academic Artist Association, Rockport Art Association, North Shore Art Association, Hudson Valley Art Association, Rhode Island Watercolor Society, and American Watercolor Society to name a few. Members’ works have been featured in American Artist Magazine and The Best of Oil Painting.
