Building Community through the Arts!

Our facade renovation is completed and we couldn't be happier to welcome our members and guests through the new front entryway! Stop by and while you are here be sure to see our 64 Arts National Juried Exhibition on display through Saturday, October 7, or reserve your spot in one of our classes! Our wonderfully creative arts opportunities are because of the support we receive from a variety of sources -- foundations, grants, planned giving, corporate sponsors, and YOU! Your BCA membership brings exhibitions, educational classes, and special events to the gallery. Thank you for your continued support of the arts in our community. Your membership Builds our Community through the Arts! 

BCA Interns

Our BCA interns have had a creative and busy summer. This past week they spoke with Fran Riley, Feature Reporter with KWQC Channel 6 News and shared what they have learned about the importance of partnerships and what the Buchanan Center for the Arts means to the community. Special thanks to KWQC and our wonderful business neighbors at the Warren County Public Library. Click here to view the article.

Enriching Lives...

Over the course of the last 25+ years, Buchanan Center for the Arts has served the residents of the Warren County region and beyond, providing creative and diverse artistic experiences. Our friend, Tim Kramer, along with BCA board member, Emily Rollie, created a video that shares the story of the impact the BCA has had on our community and its residents. (Click here). We are grateful to them for putting the video together and hope you will take a few minutes to watch it. Thank you for your continued support of the arts in our community.
