The Art Association, a nonprofit association, was organized in 1963 by a group of artists and art lovers in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary celebration of the opening of the Cape Cod Canal. The purpose of the group is to promote the appreciation of fine arts in the Canal area. The Association has held an art show every year since 1963 to benefit annual BWAA art achievement awards for local students planning to pursue a career in art.
One of the BWAA founders was Clayton Fuller of Wareham. Clayton, an artist and sculptor, created the bronze statue of AQUENE, a native American maiden, on the bluff at Onset. He served as treasurer of the Bourne Wareham Art Assoc. for many years. To honor Mr. Fuller, each year the art group presents a special Clayton Fuller, Best in Show Award.
