The Art Supply Depo BG features gallery exhibit space in both our shop and classroom, encompassing over 200 square feet of total space ready to showcase the finest artwork in a variety of media. Exhibits rotate at least six times per year and feature creative minds from across the nation. In addition to our rotating gallery exhibitions, we are also proud to feature a continuous display of handmade art items crafted by hands and hearts in Bowling Green and the surrounding area.

In the email, be sure to include three to five images of the artwork you intend to show, as well as an artist's bio, your contact information, and website (or other promotional platform). The Depo exhibitions committee will contact you from there!

"Perhaps we now grieve because we are not sure, in our hearts, that we have gained by the exchange."
Aldo Leopold, 1947

Test Plot is meant to serve as visual commentary regarding our society's tendency to replace the real with the synthetic. Greatly inspired by the effects of industrialized agriculture on soil, plant, animal, and human health, the photographs in this body of work aim to ask, 'has our movement towards a culture that places an emphasis on the surface and the short-term fix been worth it?’
As we move further away from a deep understanding of that which truly sustains us and towards greater magnitudes of industrialization, what are we losing?
