The Brickbottom Artist Association (BAA), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, is dedicated to preserving and expanding the arts in Somerville and the greater Boston area.
The BAA's annual Open Studios, now in its 17th year, is one of the oldest in Boston. Year-round, the Brickbottom gallery presents thoughtful and professionally curated art exhibitions as Somerville's only not-for-profit contemporary art gallery.
We foster a stable, permanent artist community of Brickbottom residents and non-resident members. The BAA promotes and supports its members and their artwork through art openings, BAA gallery shows, membership benefits, and other programs.
Through community outreach and involvement, free lectures, and scholarship awards, the BAA strives to expand an awareness of the arts that enriches the Boston community at large.
