    Beginning in 1983, the BAM! juried competition has exhibited the creative talents of numerous local and regional visual artists in celebration for cultural diversity and awareness through the arts in Beaverton. BAM! began as a two-week show and grew into a four-day show and event. Included in the event was an artist reception, quick draw event, and artist workshops shown live at various locations. The 2022 competition has transformed into a hybrid in-person and virtual one-month event in partnership with the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts (PRCA).  

    This year BAM! includes incredible works of art from youth, emerging, mid-career, and established artists featuring paintings, drawings, glassworks, sculpture, photography, and more. The virtual showcase will spotlight the entire 2022 collection and will feature new works every two weeks. In addition, a People’s Choice award will be announced during First Friday on October 7. The award will be announced at 7 pm in the gallery.
