The Bascom presents our 6th annual juried Member Challenge: PLACE, an exhibit in our Thompson Gallery. As makers and creators, human beings experience the world as both a place given to them and as a place they can mark, shape, and mold. The places that become homes to us offer familiarity, comfort, and even companionship. Join The Bascom in embracing PLACE as our annual theme for 2022. 

Bascom member artists are asked to submit an original work of art that they feel best express what the term means to them. The Members Challenge is The Bascom's longest running exhibition and provides an important opportunity for Bascom community artists.

Call for Entry!
