RECEPTIONS AND TOUR AND TALK SESSIONS: enhancing your bac experience Most exhibitions have a reception and many have artist or curator tour and talk sessions. They are free, informal, and open to anyone. Both events celebrate the artists and their exhibitions and give you inside information about the inspirations and talent behind them. Receptions start at 2 pm with comments from BAC staff and artists at 2:15 pm, followed by refreshments and mingling. Come for the whole session or just drop in at any time between 2 and 3:30 pm. Tour and Talk sessions start at a set time with the artist and/or curator moving through the exhibition, providing information about the pieces in it and answering questions. Look for flyers promoting these sessions in the galleries. It’s a relaxing way to enhance your experience of BAC exhibitions, so join us!
