BKAT Art Share

Art Share, showcasing local art and creativity in Kitsap County.   

Through this campaign, artist’s original work will be shared with the community through our Cable Access Channel (Comcast channel 12 and Wave Cable Channel 3), Live Streaming from BKAT’s website and BKAT social media. The purpose of this program is to encourage artist endeavor by showing local artwork and talent, not to sell or commercially promote individual artists.
