Community Art Showcase

The Community Art Show has been a community tradition since 2001. Local adult artists (age 18 and up) enter their artwork in the show which is then judged. There are three main categories that artists can enter: fine art, applied art and photography. The top 3 entries are awarded cash prizes in each category.

The Community Art Show (CAS) is open to area artists 18 years or older living in Ripley, Fayette, Franklin, Decatur, Dearborn, or Switzerland counties (or members of BAAC or made prior donations to the BAAC art auction) and offers opportunities for local artists to showcase their individual and collective talents in the Batesville area. All original art entered into the CAS will be displayed at the Batesville Memorial Public Library (BMPL). Entries are judged in fine arts 2D, fine arts 3D, applied arts, and photography.
