236 Banyon, watercolor, 2012: Donated by exhibiting artist Patti Middleton

The Boca Grande Art Center "BGAC" was founded in 1986 orginally called Boca Grande Art Alliance by a small group of talented artists living in Boca Grande, Florida, who were in search of a venue to show their art works to residents and visitors.  The Fust Library in town hosted several early exhibitions. We have become much more than an alliance of local artists and have become the center for visual arts here on the island.  Today we have grown as a 501-c3 non-profit operation with a very supportive and active membership.

Over the years, our program has added art exhibits, workshops, classes, educational lectures, special events and scholarships.  These all celebrate the local culture and promote the visual arts for the public and contribute to the cultural life of our community.

Rusty Powell
Our Featured Event 2019
Thursday, January 17th
Lecture with Mr. Earl Powell, III
Director of the National Gallery of Art

The Art Center was pleased to host Earl Powell, III, the Director of the National Gallery of Art this past January. 

The National Gallery of Art was conceived and endowed by the renowned financier, United States Secretary of Treasury, and U.S. Ambassador to the Court of St. James’s, Andrew W. Mellon.  Guided by Mellon’s grand vision to create a national collection for the American people, the Gallery has flourished and is now known as one of the world’s greatest repositories of Western art.  Earl A. Powell III, only the fourth director to lead the National Gallery, will discuss the institution’s remarkable founding at the beginning of the twentieth century and its continued growth and achievement in the twenty-first.

Please visit our website often for up to date details of future lecture series for next season beginning January of 2020.
