BGWP x Dominique Gallery Open Call


BLACK GIRLS WHO PAINT & Dominique Gallery are pleased to announce an OPEN CALL for Black Women Artists for special consideration for upcoming fairs, solo and group exhibitions, and special programming in 2021.

Both organizations are dedicated to investing in the growth and representation of Black women in the fine arts space. Museums, galleries, art fairs and other organizations are all assessing gaps in their rosters and staff so it's important to be prepared to take advantage of new opportunities through mentorship, artistic development, exhibitions, and collaborations. Invest in your arts practice and submit today!


BLACK GIRLS WHO PAINT (BGWP) is an ecosystem of Black women artists created to support and promote positive representation, sisterhood, and community - one that Founder Sasha-Loriene always wanted as a young girl. As such, BGWP is also a platform formed by a Black woman who paints that believes in increasing our visibility so young black girls can see themselves in the art world. In doing so, BGWP empowers Black women and girls to share their art and story because when we see ourselves, we believe in ourselves and encourage others to do the same.
