BAGA’s 13th Annual Square Foot Show

Stop in to see the 13th Annual Square Foot Exhibit featuring 130 works by 80 different artists from throughout the region and across the United States! Each artwork measures 12” X 12” and will be sold for $155. On exhibit are a variety of styles, mediums, subject matter and skill levels. Artists were invited to enter up to 2 pieces, in any media, on canvases furnished by BAGA to ensure all canvases are alike in size and depth. This popular exhibit eliminates the fear of pricing for artists, and not knowing how much you’ll pay for original art for collectors. This exhibit is open Tuesday, April 30th through Friday, May 24th

The Artwork of Member Artist, Sandra Cofell


Sandra began painting with acrylics in 2013 when a friend asked her to participate in the BAGA Square Foot Show. Sandra’s prior painting experience was back in the 1980’s when she took classes and did some tole painting with oils. Since then, acrylics have become her favored painting medium. She recently started working with colored pencils when it’s not convenient to use paints.


Photography was Sandra’s medium of artistic expression for most of her life. Now, photos have become reference and inspiration for creating a painting. Traveling gives Sandra the opportunity to capture a large variety of scenes/subjects on her camera that can be added to her reference files. She also photographs some of the local creatures that visit her yard. In addition to using her own photographs Sandra sometimes uses an old snapshot from her family as reference.


While Sandra is still learning and trying to paint a variety of subjects she gravitates towards having birds, animals and other living creatures in her paintings.
