May is SKETCH MONTH so SBAA is honoring that by having TWO Exhibits at our satellite galleries!

During our Saturday Sketch Club, our group sketched butterfly specimens, which were the inspiration for our “Papillion” Exhibition. Each artist, took their time to create pieces to be place on exhibit.

We will be selecting 12 works to spotlight from submitted entries. Patrons of The Cheese Patch will have 10 days to cast their votes for their top three favorite works, winners will be presented with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons and the work that receives the most votes overall will receive a Best in Show ribbon.

Artist reception details to follow.

ONE piece is allowed per artist for consideration.
