Current and Upcoming Exhibitions

Our curatorial board is deciding the exhibitions, and the format of the exhibitions calendar. 


This work will be serving and exhibiting contemporary art from local, regional, and national artists, ranging from emerging to established.  All mediums are accepted.  The exhibitions will be some annual exhibitions, juried and invitational shows, as well as open calls.  

As our team finalizes the calendar and exhibitions,

please read more about the annual and continued programs we will offer.  

Bridgework Program

Initiated by Jason S. Yi and Leah Kolb, Bridge Work is a collaborative endeavor focused on providing recent art school graduates with opportunities to sustain artistic momentum and transition into the realm of a professional studio practice.  Acknowledging the nuances inherent to the contemporary art world, our interest centers on helping emerging artists navigate this uncertain terrain by broadening the scope of their professional connections and experiences.

Annual Student Exhibition 

An annual exhibition inviting students of Cultivate to share works that they have made throughout the year. Students of any age are invited to share 1-2 pieces.  Participants of this exhibition will receive an exhibition catalog of the work.  

Featured Artist Program 

The Featured Artist Program at Cultivate serves to elevate and amplify the artist's work and process with the community, inviting them to understand how and why an artist creates the work they do, to market and promote artists, and to connect artists to each other and to our network of curators, artists, and gallery owners. Similar to a virtual exhibition, this is a curated collection of artists, this is a representation of the work that will be seen in our gallery. 


This is an open call process for local, regional, and national artists.  Artists are selected in every January and June, and scheduled out for the six-month period with each month featuring a different artist.
