News and Events

GENERAL MEETING INFORMATION: Meetings are on the second Saturday of odd numbered months, from 11 am – 2 pm. Most meetings are held at the Bellevue Arts Museum, 510 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue, WA 98004. Bring your lunch. Also bring any artwork you are working on or have recently completed. For all meetings at BAM, if you are not a museum member, you may attend the meetings without paying the museum daily entry fee if you go directly to and from the meeting room. If you wish to see any of the exhibits on the day of the meeting, you need to pay a daily entrance fee. You may choose to become a museum member for the artist rate of $40 a year. This museum has no permanent exhibits, so it is likely there will be a different exhibit on display for most of our 6 yearly meetings. BAM membership includes openings and special events. On their community page, artist members can provide a link to their personal artist website. 


All meetings are held at Bellevue Arts Museum unless otherwise noted.
