2022 Exhibition
Submission Deadline: June 15, 2021, 11:59pm

The BAC’s Gallery Program features opportunities for artists to share their work in a truly unique space. Our galleries offer an environment where visitors are invited to experience exhibitions outside of the traditional white box setting, allowing for an intimate exploration of the work. Our call for proposals encourages solo artists and groups of all levels to organize and present a professional exhibition with the guidance and support of our staff.

All exhibitions, receptions and artist talks are free and open to the public.
