At the edge of campus, beneath the first floor of the Art Building, is a unique and hidden pocket of the university unknown to most UC Davis students: the Basement Gallery, a space run entirely by students for students.
The Basement Gallery is currently accepting portraits of all types and mediums, and poems regarding “the self.” You can submit up to three works, or you can sign up for open mic at submit2BG@gmail.com. Submissions must be in .jpg format; videos must be under three minutes long.
Submissions accepted until February 5th.
The opening and related performances for “Being: Portraiture & Poetry” will be on Thursday, February 8 from 6-9 pm in The Basement Gallery (Art Building, Room 60).
“Who Is U.S?” explores and honors the diverse identities of artists in America. This timely exhibition opens on Inauguration Day, Friday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Basement Gallery on the lower level of the Art Building. The exhibition is free and open to all.
