Apply to Exhibit

Baba Yaga Collective accepts submission proposals towards themed, group shows as well as artists looking to mount a solo exhibit. Priority is given to Female/gender-fluid/LGBTQ2 identifying, indigenous, poc artists looking for a safe space for creative expression.

Hosting artist exhibits is part of our initiative to share artistic experiences. The Baba Yaga Collective provides emerging and established artists, creatives, designers and progressive thinkers a safe space for creative expression and a place to meet with other creative people in a small collaborative community. The fee to exhibit/show/install work is $650 for a 1-week duration (Opening reception on Thursday or Saturday). If the Artist wants to lead a workshop, hold a small concert/performance/artist talk or read poetry this is to take place during the Opening Reception.

Baba Yaga Collective welcomes proposals from collectives, artist groups, and individual artists. All exhibits held at Baba Yaga Collective are subject to review and must be accompanied by a proposal. Exhibitions run for a one-week period, although longer shows may be arranged. The gallery charges a rental fee but encourages artists and groups to seek out project grants from various government and art funding agencies to cover all or some of their costs. Baba Yaga Collective does not take a commission for the sales of art.
