The Structure of Bushel
Bushel is maintained by a small, evolving collective of area residents who decided to take a chance on a non-commercial endeavor in a Main Street storefront. While we have agreed to volunteer our time and to split the cost of rent and utilities when monthly revenues don’t meet overhead, our goal—sometimes met, sometimes not—is for Bushel to be fully self-supported from a combination of: suggested donations collected at events and workshops, commissions on the sale of art and books, proceeds from renting the space, and contributions and grants. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact us at If you’d like to make a contribution, you can donate online (we thank you!). Also, valuable support starts with coming to Bushel events and spreading the word.

Bushel operates a small, nonprofit gallery mounting 5-10 shows per year, with a focus on emerging and established artists connected to the region, activist art, and art that functions at the intersection of image and text. Submissions: If you are a visual artist who would like to be considered for exhibition in the gallery, please fill in our Gallery Submission Form . Please note that exhibitions are generally scheduled a year or more in advance. Join the mailing list to receive periodic calls for entries to themed group shows.

[Workshops, Performances, Talks, Screenings, and other Events]
Proposals are welcome for one-time events, workshops or classes that fit with the Bushel mission. Interested in proposing something? Fill in our Event Proposal Form. The space is also available for rent when the event is private or outside the scope of Bushel’s programming. Interested in renting the space? Fill in our Space-Rental Form.
