April: FIVE

Stop by MAC’s Gallery @ Room 1927 to shop in our gallery gift shop and to see our newest exhibition, the FIVE Show. The April exhibition series is sponsored by the Mobile International Airport and will be featured in the MAC Gallery through April 30th, 2024.

“Five” is a biennial juried exhibition of work by students from the area’s five colleges and universities. This exhibition gives young adults the opportunity to showcase their artwork in a professional venue, as well as a chance to meet other artists, win prizes, and gain public recognition. Entry is open to any student enrolled during the current academic year at Bishop State Community College, Coastal Alabama Community College, Spring Hill College, the University of Mobile, or the University of South Alabama. Students do NOT have to major in art or be taking art classes to participate.

This year, 47 student artists are displaying 75 pieces in varying mediums, including painting, drawing, ceramics, glass, and more.

There will be a special awards reception during Artwalk on April 12th at 7:00 p.m. Six prizes will be awarded: First, Second, and Third Place; and three Judge’s Choice. Thank you to Sophiella Gallery, Lupercalia Art Society, Ashland Gallery, and the Mobile Art Association for sponsoring this year’s prizes. Prizes include cash, MAC Memberships, Mobile Art Association Memberships, and gift cards from local businesses. Thank you to our judge, Adrienne Clow, for jurying the pieces that make up this exhibition, and thank you to all of the students and professors who make this wonderful competition possible!

This exhibition will be featured in the MAC Gallery through April 30th, 2024. Please contact Sydney Cramer at scramer@mobilearts.org for information.
