Exhibition Proposals

2020 Exhibition

Entry Deadline: June 1, 2019, 11:59pm

The BAC accepts exhibition proposals once per year. Our call for exhibition proposals encourages solo artists and groups of all levels to organize and present a professional exhibition with the guidance and support of our staff. The BAC's gallery hosts up to three solo or group proposed exhibitions each calendar year. Our gallery committee consisting of regional artists and art professionals makes the exhibition selections.




Local, national and international artists are eligible for consideration. Group and solo exhibitions of all media are welcome to apply. All applications must be entered online through the BAC's submission form.
