Boerne Professional Artists (BPA) conducts shows and events throughout the year promoting the visual arts. We are a partner with the the non profit Hill Country Council for the Arts and a member of the Boerne Chamber of Commerce.
The Boerne Professional Artists organization includes galleries and artists from the Texas Hill Country to the Texas coast. Our patrons are from across the entire country. Artist members work in various media including sculptures, paintings, photography, jewelry and mixed media. To learn more about joining our organization please go to About BPA.
In October of each year we hold our Texas Hill Country Invitational. The Invitational is a major event with a diversity of art and media and artists from around the country. Along with the show this year is a plein air paint out.
The Parade of Artists is an annual festive event held each spring when hundreds of art patrons from around the country visit various art venues in Boerne, Texas.
The BPA also works with the Chamber of Commerce, Kendal County Economic Development, the City of Boerne, Hill Country Council for the Arts, as well as many other organizations in Boerne. This year planning is taking place on an art show along the Creek Trails, Cibolo Creek Festival of Arts, in Boerne on May 17th.
The monthly event, 2nd Saturday Art and Wine, in Boerne is the second Saturday of each month. Participating art galleries provide hors d’oeuvres and refreshments from 4 to 8pm with a free trolley connecting the various venues. Its a great time to visit galleries, meet the artists, and enjoy a relaxed congenial artistic environment.
